Zachary Garred Debuts On General Hospital! What Were Your First Impressions Of Levi?



Maxie’s back, which is great news for General Hospital fans to finally have Kirsten Storms (Maxie) return to the ABC soap after her maternity leave.  And on Wednesday’s episode, Maxie brought someone back with her to Port Charles, none other than the new character of free spirit Levi!

And that ushered in the first on-screen appearance of actor Zachary Garred, who as Levi, first appears half-naked in a towel, and immediately had some friction with Nathan (Ryan Paevey), who was surprised to see Maxie home (since Nathan has been staying at her place) and with some stranger no less!

Later, after Levi dispenses advice to Nathan to forgive his mother Madeline (Donna Mills), after the detective admits to Maxie and Levi that he arrested his mother and that his mother killed his sister, Nathan leaves quite angry.

When the scene picks up later, there is a sweet exchange between Levi and Maxie, and they kiss! Watch the first GH scenes featuring Zachary Garred after the jump!  Then, let us know what were your first impressions of the character of Levi?  Were you surprised he kissed Maxie?  Weigh-in!

    it’s just too soon for me to tell anything about him yet except i love his accent!

      I agree, however, as much as I admire his buff chest, why could he not have been introduced in a more normal setting? This scene, his aura and philosophy are sort of …. Ohmmmm…..FAROUT!!!! Lol…

    Totally annoying guy but that’s the point. Maybe he’ll turn out to be a con artist and Maxie will abandon her newfound peace. Why exactly did he come with her to PC? Where will they fit into the existing stories?

      I totally Agree. Nothing about him makes me want to welcome him.

      He was just noise in the background far as I’m concerned. He’s not needed in an already over-bloated cast.

    Waste of time. To me he is another Spinelli like character Maxi can bounce her stupid ideas off of and then screw him over. Why the hell not use GH’s characters we all know and love first. Frank? I’ll remind you. Mac, Felicia, Kevin, Lucy, Scott, Anna, Patrick, Bobbi, Duke. Where has Duke been?

      GH is being written,– somewhat– , in telenovelas style..
      One or two main stories play out to the end then one or two different stories are highlighted..
      ALL will have their stories and yet they all remain in the back and still around in their stories and in the main stories here and there..
      the actors get free time to do other projects, they like that, and we can get highly involved in one/two main stories instead of jumping around in and out of many stories..
      When Patrick’s story starts it will revolve mainly around him and his peoples and whatever is happening in his life and with whomever is involved..
      (is the way I’ve been seeing it..

        I am loving it.. they are good storylines and keeps me interested.. great job GH

      • Timmm

        April 11, 2014 at 6:12 am

        You make a good point about the story telling. However, why couldnt they then write around Steve Burton? He would have stayed on the show if he could have come in and out of Nashville. Remember, he “Retired” to be with his family. I’m sure he has his quality time now with his schedule at Y&R but GH could have done the same thing. I think Frank and Ron want to create THEIR own characters and lay the legendary GH characters to rest.

      • Erick

        April 11, 2014 at 1:50 pm

        If they’re laying the legendary GH characters to rest, how come they keep bringing them back? Lucy, Scotty, Kevin, Anna, Duke…. Fair point about yet another new character, but if they’re laying the legends to rest they wouldn’t bother to bring them back…. Just my opinion….

  4. jimh(leave it to beaver)

        Shhh they might hear you and actually bring Richard back on to be his father. But yeah I do see a resemblance of sorts around the eyes. Poor guy. lol.

      • Rodd

        April 10, 2014 at 3:32 pm

        OMG! I thought the same thing and just wanted to punch him. The character is so annoying. I’ll have to wait, though, and see how he develops.

  5. Johnny

    April 10, 2014 at 11:05 am

    this character is going to get REALLY annoying REALLY quick…oh wait, he did that within his first three spoken lines on the show. Has Ron Carlivati EVER heard of things like subtlety, and subtext?? We don’t need to be slammed over the head with the fact that this Levi is a tree-huggin, earth lovin’, bottle recyclin’ guru. We can learn these things over time. Given the time-honoured tradition of Carlivati introducing new males nearly naked (the Ford brothers on OLTL, etc), of course Levi made his entrance in a towel. This was to let all viewers know that Levi is hot, first and foremost. UGH. He seems to be an energetic, engaging performer, and there is potential, but tone him down, and don’t make him ALL about his quirks, which nearly ruined the character of Spinnelli. No one is weird and quirky ALL the time. It has to be balanced with some character, not just caricature.

      I love everything you said, couldn’t agree more.

    • Lin

      April 10, 2014 at 2:41 pm

      I never thought of what you mentioned about introduction of men in towels are his modus operandi. Who would suggest to a total stranger under those circumstances to forgive right away? I am as tree hugging as anyone, that doesn’t mean you’re an idiot. Why why not introduce the character in such a way that people like him regardless if he has some unusual characteristics? Why make Maxi look like an idiot again to have chosen an idiot for her friend? This is one reason I’m not such a big maxi supporter like a lot of people. She acts like an idiot a good portion of the time. I was hoping should come back more mature . Due to local news regarding the horrible crash into a daycare I may have missed some scenes with this character but what I’ve seen were poorly written and a bad beginning.

    I read he’s only on for a few months…Maxie may wind up with Detective West ala mutta’s son.

    • rebecca1

      April 10, 2014 at 12:06 pm

      still wishing for an edit button…so to add and respond to the question…he was on too briefly for me to make an assessment. and while he’s normally my “type”…and I love the accent…not many guys can shine (physically) next to “Detective West.” Sorry but that man is a looker!

      I’m holding judgment on this new cutie til I see more of him.

    • FAS

      April 14, 2014 at 12:04 pm

      Levi may be with us for a few months, as you say, but we just got a glimpse of his true nature. He is manipulating Maxie for some reason. He definitely does not want Nathan around….yep, he’s a baddie……and, only pretending to use his “spiritual being “as a facade.

      • rebecca1

        April 14, 2014 at 4:45 pm

        Could be FAS…he may be getting darker but for some reason he’s getting better looking in my eyes as well! Now if he would just quit being so freaking annoying! LOL…

      • Shay

        April 15, 2014 at 2:09 am

        Yep…there is definitely something totally sinister lurking beneath the sunny, euphoric facade of Ginger Granola Guy…almost like what you see with a cult leader! Definitely some sort of hidden, devious agenda there….that being said, he looks like the demented lovechild of Richard Simmons and Carrot Top, with a touch of “Chucky” tossed in for good measure!!!!

      • rebecca1

        April 17, 2014 at 3:35 pm

        I don’t know FAS…I have a thing for accents. Love British and Aussie accents…loved Luke’s “son” Nathan too! ( And don’t get me started on Jonathan Rhys Meyers, Henry Cavill, Jude Law, Hugh Jackman, Eric Bana, Simon Baker, Colin Farrell, Liam Neeson, Stuart Townsend, Gerard Butler…not to mention our beloved Robert Scorpio, Duke Lavery and Jax!) Errrrrrrr…but I digress.

        Ya. I have a thing for accents. Sigh…

    No more new characters…too many vets need air time. I like the idea everyone gets a chance but Maxie can find her way single a little while…the new character annoyed me with his dialogue. Not sure I see Maxie and Nathan (James) as a couple

  9. Ces

    April 10, 2014 at 12:00 pm

    Very annoying. Just glad to have Maxie back though. Hopefully this Aussie is short-term!

  10. Mika

    April 10, 2014 at 12:51 pm

    It cracks me up when people complain about new characters are introduced. These additions are staples of keeping soaps alive. Many of these so called “veterans” were once new characters being introduced by whoever was writing at the time. If new characters weren’t introduced you never would have any of the characters today and the soap would have died with Steve Hardy.

    • KansasGuest

      April 11, 2014 at 8:26 am

      Agree. I can also tell that after having characters like Carly, Michael, Patrick, Emma, Sabrina, Anna & Duke on front-burner status for a few months, they are trying to give the actors a break by having them on less. Then other characters, like Luke, Tracy, Julian, Alexis, and now Maxie are coming to the forefront. It’s good to cycle characters like that because then the actors don’t get burned out and the audience won’t get bored.

  11. Mary SF

    April 10, 2014 at 12:55 pm

    My first impression was I didn’t like the character at all. Hope he isn’t on for too long.

    April 10, 2014 at 1:33 pm

    We only saw him for a few minutes, so much to come, not ready to judge..
    I like the accent lol
    He might well turn out to be an interesting guy..
    But to judge him so very quickly is asinine 🙂 .. lol

    Nathan and Maxie would be a horrible couple…
    I’m giving Nathan time to explore and later on find a girlfriend..
    He has a messed up head now and in no position to get involved with anyone..

  16. Tammy Kreiss

    April 10, 2014 at 1:40 pm

    Not thrilled about a newcomer with no clear ties to anyone. Ilene Kristen is a phenomenal actress we all know and love, with strong ties! Would much rather see her or any GH vets that are backburner too often! Yes, love the accent, but that’s it. Nothing personal, just wrong time, wrong place.

  17. Jimmy

    April 10, 2014 at 1:41 pm

    It’s funny, one of Levi’s lines was “I must learn to keep my big mouth shut sometimes” which is exactly what I wished he did after rambling about the shampoo. If this is how things are going to go with this character, I can already tell I won’t like it.

  18. Nemi Denise R

    April 10, 2014 at 2:02 pm

    If Zachary Garred character is a good influence on Maxie I say keep him around because she gets on my last nerve.

    Maxie is going to be a bit ZEN for a while… something the character no doubt needs based on her past story… she needs to move out of that apt and all the memories…hope she and LULU can work things out..maybe she will bring back some spice with LULU that girl is a dud now…

    I find him appealing, and immediately felt his “Spinelli type” presence, which is fine with me, as I loved Spinelli, and I look forward to seeing how this plays out.

    April 10, 2014 at 9:09 pm

    first impression, not good, who knows with time, but as of now , i found him annoying, pointless and waste of airtime.

    • Jimmy

      April 11, 2014 at 4:50 pm

      precious airtime being wasted on him (and Nathan, for that matter – can’t stand him!) instead of using the vets more: Lynn Herring, Jon Lindstrom, Kin Shriner, Jane Elliot, Kristina Wagner, John J. York… well, hopefully Mac will be on screen more now that Maxie is back. But still, Levi is pointless.

      • dmr

        I agree and just posted something similar to what you both said. Let’s see the veterans more, please.

    April 11, 2014 at 7:54 am

    Yet another newbie? Why? I’d appreciate more vet action and SL’s already in play. I don’t care for SL’s being drop kicked so another can start. The show feels very disconnected. Too many players on the field IMO. This new dude? Too soon to tell but first impression…not so good. I just pray he’s a better actor than cardboard Nathan. Good abs can only take them so far!!

    April 11, 2014 at 8:18 am

    I think it’s too early to judge the character of Levi.Plus since it’s been reported he’s only going to be on for a couple of months and maybe up to when Maxie repetitions the court to get to see her baby.Then Maxie’s story could move in a different direction.However until then Maxie does need a story.As for Levi it could turn out his motives regarding Maxie may not entirely be innocent.I also think the show will eventually pair Maxie and Nathan up but right now it’s too soon for that to happen.

  30. KansasGuest

    April 11, 2014 at 8:21 am

    Levi makes Nathan look much better by comparison. If that’s why they brought him on, congratulations! At least Nathan has shown he’s capable of doing the right thing by arresting his mother. And, the fact that it’s tearing him up inside indicates he’s somewhat normal. What is ironic about my comment is that I probably do all the things Levi likes – recycle, volunteer, try & give back to my community. He is just so smug & obnoxious about it that listening to him made me want to shove all my newspapers & plastic containers into his know-it-all face. Man, I can’t stand people like that!

  31. Max

    April 11, 2014 at 8:34 am

    No offense to the actor but I do not like this character at all. Maxie needs better then this. I couldn’t even watch his scenes.

    • Jimmy

      April 11, 2014 at 4:46 pm

      They say first impressions are everything, but after Levi talked about the shampoo and the Philippines, I just fast forwarded through the rest. He and Maxie don’t seem right for each other. I would love for Spinelli to come back and be with Maxie and their child. I hope he doesn’t stay around long, I already don’t like him.

      • dmr

        April 14, 2014 at 8:23 am

        I agree. The scenes were such a waste of air-time.

      • FAS

        April 17, 2014 at 5:05 pm

        Oh, good idea, Jimmy. If Spinelli comes back, then the chances of a Maxie and Nathan pairing become null and void? Maybe? Lol

    I really Like the new Levi character, he’s mellow, calm and sweet, who could deny the accent also? Maxie needs someone like him in her life and the towns been so intense and stressed they need to chill a little. I really hope they keep him around,.always good to have a positive person around !

    I’m kind of intrigued and willing to give him time to see how his character develops. I don’t think he’s a good match with Maxie though.

  37. dmr

    April 14, 2014 at 8:22 am

    Another useless, recurring character with no ties to Port Charles. We haven’t seen Patrick in weeks. Have hardly seen Anna or Duke. The funeral for AJ has not been aired. We haven’t seen Monica and Tracy discussing AJ’s death or his funeral. This is what happens when the writers introduce us to more characters; they lose sight of current storylines and we lose focus and interest. I do love Alexis and Julian. Love Maura West as Ava; she has chemistry with everyone she interacts with on the show. Like seeing Ric, again, too. Can the real Luke please return?

  47. HobokenLucy

    May 11, 2014 at 8:06 am

    I love the new characters like Levi and Nathan West. LOVE Sabrina, Felix. Return of Maxi is much awaited. I’ve watched GH for 37 years and I almost never comment online. I realize I have to be more vocal as a fan. I HATED Spinelli when he first debuted but quickly grew to love him. I almost went nuts missing him when he left, and I’m thrilled he’ll return, even if only temporarily. I feel bad saying anything bad, but I really dislike Lulu. I think it was a complete miscasting from the get go. I’m shocked that GH would cast someone so different from the last actress. I don’t see a shred of the character of Lulu, and its a disaster. I remained quiet because I thought it was such bad casting that it wouldn’t last. The actress is fine but this character is one hundred percent not right for her. And finally ( I’m gonna let it all out here since I’ve commented online only once or twice before since the year 2000!) I am SO GRATEFUL that they have so many of my old favorite actors back on the show. There is NOTHING in the history of television like the comfort of these people who have been there to distract me from the real sorrows in life, or to make me laugh or appreciate my joys and blessings. Its a unique thing that doesn’t exist in film, theater, music or literature. Its Shakespearean and kitsch and everything in between. The people who dont understand this are the people who simply never watched a soap with any consistency. It is something I can never explain to a non-soap viewer. Thanks for your website. We soap fans need to mobilize and I realize, be much more vocal.

    Bring back Spinelli! This guy is awful! He’s not cute, his accent is horrendous, and he’s a terrible actor! He’s not Maxi’s type at all. And maybe that’s the point. I think Maxi and Nathan need to have a story. It would be a lot better than this Levi guy!

    I agree. Do not like the character of Levi. He is a lousy actor. Maxie has more sparks with Nathan.

      I agree…. his acting is awkward next to a pro like Kristen Storm. And yes he is a rat too. All around waste of space. For GH. He needs more experience. I find that the scenes with Emma and the other two little boys are do much more entertaining

    he is the one who told the judge about the lie that caused Maxie to not get Georgi back

    I absolutely can’t stand even liking at him. Maybe it’s the long hair or maybe he really is a horrible actor. I could barely suit through his scene today…in fact I ended up here during that scene to find out who this stiff long hair but not attractive dude is. Now I know. Save your money gh this guy does not fit in especially with the spectacular Kristen Storm. Please get rid of him you still have time. I stopped watching a while ago started watching again when you bough the outstanding Michelle Stafford from YnR. Don’t make me leave again with this creepy dude…… see already forgot his name. Give Maxie someone worthy of get acting skill. It was devastating when you lost Jason. I stopped watching for a long time. Stopped recording. Now here has turned up at YnR Michelle is here good trade. These other guys? Don’t waste your money and great writing on him. Booooo.

    Interesting character and good 3-way story line for Maxie and Nathan, but Maxie’s real personality will come shining through! I knew they couldn’t just have her jump in to something with Nathan, and of course I was always hoping for a Spanelli-Maxie reunion but that’s probably sailed. She needs someone with fire and Levi just doesn’t have it. Great accent though and I love his eyes 🙂

    SMUG does not appeal to me………… Levi needs an attitude adjustment……….. a very bad influence on our younger people in promoting rudeness and manipulation.

    GH needs to get rid of Levi & Nina all they are just disgusting manipulative trouble makers. Clay and Maxie.deserve better then those two horrible people. I tape GH just so I can fast forward LEVI & Ninas time on the air. I’ve never liked NINA ever since she came out on Y&R. So please GH get Levi & Nina off real soon please.

GH’s Michael Easton Posts “Ask Me Anything” Part Two

Over the coronavirus pandemic General Hospital star Michael Easton (Hamilton Finn) has been answering several fans questions posted to him in a series of posts on his official Facebook page. 

This week, Easton posted part two of his “Ask Me Anything”, and the fan favorite said he he will do his best to get through everyone’s questions and thanked those who made donations to America Health Care Workers and food banks during COVID-19.

In part two; questions ranged from: his connection with his on-screen brother played by Josh Swickard, if he would ever consider a return to Days of our Lives to reprise the role of Tanner Scofield (his first soap role), what is his favorite part of playing Hamilton Finn, and the casting of his on-screen daughter Violet played by Jophielle Love and more.

One question posed to Easton revolved around the just completed Daytime Emmys, when he was asked: “How many times have you submitted yourself for the Emmys? Some actors seem to put a real emphasis on being nominated but you don’t seem to care that much?”

Michael responded: “I’m pacing myself. I’ve maybe submitted three or four times in twenty years. It’s a lovely honor but not something I focus on. Everyday I try to give the best, most truthful performance I can and as I long as I can do that…I live with myself.”

Make sure to “Like” Michael’s official Facebook page, if you have not already to see more of his “Ask Me Anything’s”

So, what are your hopes for Hamilton Finn when Michael returns to taping new episodes of General Hospital in the future?

This year’s 47th annual Daytime Emmy Awards were back on television for the first time since 2011, and back on CBS.  Due to the times we are living in the throes of the coronavirus pandemic, the usual kudofest, honoring the best in daytime programming, had to move from its originally scheduled live event to a virtual one.

That also means for us at Michael Fairman TV, the usual backstage “Winner’s Walk” interviews conducted immediately following some of your daytime drama favorites big wins also had to altered for this unique year.

Over the weekend, we caught up with Outstanding Supporting Actress in a Drama Series winner, Tamara Braun (Ex-Kim Nero, General Hospital) for another heartfelt chat on her second all-time win in the category, and Outstanding Writing Team in a Drama Series winner, The Bold and the Beautiful’s executive producer and head writer, Brad Bell, who won this award for the fifth time in his career as he shared how much he learned from his late legendary parents and Y&R and B&B co-creators: Lee Phillip Bell, who was part of the In-Memoriam tribute on the telecast, and the late Bill Bell.
