Zachary Garred Debuts Short Hair Cut On General Hospital! Donates Hair To Locks Of Love!

So, as On-Air On-Soaps first showed you from our photo gallery and pictures from the recent GHFCW 2014, Zachary Garred (Levi Dunkleman/Peter Harrell) has cut off his hair to a shorter-do! And this week of the ABC soap, fans saw the new look!

But when the decision was made to cut off the long hair, Zachary decided to donate it to the charity Locks of Love!  The actors gives some inside scoop to ABC.com!  on the hair change and more.  Here are a few excerpts below!

Garred on why he cut his hair:  “Given the revelations with Levi’s character it only seemed appropriate that he completely ditched the guise. Frank (Valentini) suggested some ideas to me and I jumped at the chance to cut my hair.”

Garred on what it means for his character:   “It is the revelation of the real Levi. The bloke under the hair and hippy guise who has been so manipulative.  But given how underhanded he has been maybe this isn’t the last incarnation Levi takes…”

Garred on why he decided to donate to Locks of Love:  “I had always wanted to do something for charity with my hair and Locks of Love was the perfect choice. Fans often asked if my hair was a wig, so it was only fitting that it went on to help in some way.  I also donated some money to Canteen in Australia, an association that takes care of kids and teenagers dealing with cancer. A very dear mate of mine had a brother who was treated for cancer, Canteen did so much for him and his family to help during chemo. I have always wanted to do something like this for such wonderful organizations so it’s great that some good came out of Levi’s nefarious ways.”

So, what do you think of Zachary’s short hair?  When Zachary teases, “this isn’t the last incarnation that Levi takes,” what do you think could be his characters next look?  Watch the scene below from this week’s GH, when Levi AKA Peter shows up with short hair in front of a kidnapped Maxie (Kirsten Storms) and Lulu (Emme Rylan)!

Are there TWO Brads on GH now…why do they sound and act and the same? Is he Brad’s half bi brother??? Some of these people could truly voice some classic cartoon character’s if this were the 60’s/70’s…did RC parents keep him from the TV most Saturday mornings and this style of writing is his payback?? Me just confused!!!

Right, Patrick. As soon as I saw him I said he was a baddie and up to no good! Is he trying to grow a mustache?….peach fuzz…

Kudos to him for donating and for getting a hair cut too! I just think the hair people at GH need to realize that Levi wouldn’t have his poofed and sprayed like that. And in the middle of a kidnapping to boot!

He looks way better that’s for sure, as for the storyline I’m enjoying the history part of if and how it takes me back to my childhood but I’m tired of the kidnap part of it, it just feels dragged on. I am ready for some flashback though love Felicia and her long princess hair she had back then .

Having given hair to Locks of Love four times in the past 16 years, I commend this young man for doing this wonderful thing to help folks who have lost their hair to cancer and other illnesses. While I don’t watch GH, I do have friends who do, and while I know this young man’s character on GH isn’t well-loved, I hope the fans will truly love the young man, as he seems to have some amazing character.

The hair’s much better and so is his character! I couldn’t stand hippy-dippy Levi.

I like long hair on some guys but definitely not him–he looks much, much better now. And I’m actually able to resist FFing through his scenes now that his real character has come out. Hope that continues and that we get more than just a one-dimensional villain.

He’s got gorgeous hair; great of him to donate it. Though I love long hair on guys……short is nice as well…as is the darker color. I’ve googled him before; he’s worn his hair short before; in one of the pics it looks like he has blonde hair. It’s all good…

Getting rid of the ridiculous haircut and the hippy-dippy tofu-loving crap, and turning Levi into a villain, has made him much more interesting for me. Before I just wanted him gone so badly, but now that they’ve incorporated history into this story, I actually look forward to when this story is playing out. It’s much more interesting than some of the other stuff going on now.

He looks so much better. I hope he keeps it short.

Cameron Mathison Talks Strangest Shirtless Scenes, Favorite Susan Lucci Moment & More On ‘7 Questions With Steve & Brad’

On the latest installment of Steve Burton (Jason) and Bradford Anderson’s (Spinelli) You Tube series, 7 Questions with Steve and Brad, the General Hospital stars welcome the newest addition to their Port Charles family, Cameron Mathison.

Mathison is set to debut this summer back on ABC daytime in a role still under wraps, after previously playing All My Children’s Ryan Lavery and wrapping up his co-hosting gig on Hallmark Channel’s Home & Family.

In the rapid fire sequence of questions from Burton and Anderson, Cameron fielded questions such as what was his strangest take-off-your-shirt moment in soaps, his favorite Susan Lucci moment (where in story, Ryan for a short time was romantically linked to Erica Kane), plus Mathison fessed up on his favorite hosting gig, if he bakes at home, and more.

Watch the enlightening and fun conversation here.

GH’s Rebecca Herbst Thanks Fans for the Birthday Love

She is not often on social media, but when she does show up, it delights so many of her enduring fans. General Hospital’s Rebecca Herbst (Elizabeth), who yesterday celebrated her birthday on May 12th, took to Twitter to share warm ‘thank you’s’ to a few fan factions who sent her some lovely gifts in honor and support of their favorite soap star.

Herbst expressed: “Yesterday was such a beautiful day! THANK YOU for all your sweet Birthday messages! #Friz & #Liason showered me with the most gorgeous flowers, cakes & goodies. And #Friz donated $2500 to #SmileTrain.  I felt very loved. I’m so grateful for each & every one of you. …XO”

Of course, the Friz fans loved Liz with Franco (Roger Howarth) and the Liason fans are those who love Liz with Jason (Steve Burton).

Now with Roger Howarth returning to the show – in what is at this juncture still a mystery as who he will play – will Rebecca be paired with Roger in story again, or not this time?  Do you think Liz might end up romantically with Finn (Michael Easton), or is there still a chance that down the line Liz and Jason could get back together, or could Liz meet someone new? Only time will tell!

For now, Herbst was thankful for the money donated to the Smile Train charity and all the wonderful gifts and messages that came her way.

So, what did you think of Becky’s thank you message?  Who are you hoping Liz winds up with romantically in the future?  Share your thoughts in the comment section.

GENERAL HOSPITAL Touches on Racial Profiling, Social Injustice and Bias In Key Scenes with Portia and Jordan

This week ABC’s General Hospital took the opportunity to write in to their scripts and story, the issue that has been so prevalent in our country now and for decades that of racial profiling, injustice, bias, gender equality and more rolled into scenes featuring: Brook Kerr (Portia), Briana Nicole Henry (Jordan), Sydney Mikala (Trina) and William Lipton (Cameron).

When Portia comes to the boxing gym for a workout and comes upon Jordan hitting the boxing bag hard over the the incident with Cameron in the hospital garage, it spurs a greater conversation.

Jordan tells Portia about the situation that arose with Cameron and a gun, and Portia says she heard about it.  Jordan knows if Cameron’s skin was a different color, she may not have been able to de-escalate the situation and talk her officers down, if she had not arrived on the scene in the nick of time.

This launches the two women into an important conversation on racial profiling, social injustice, white privilege and gender bias that they have found themselves dealing with in their professions (Portia is a doctor and Jordan the police commissioner) and their children’s lives.

Later in another scene, Trina reminds Cameron how they, along with Joss (Eden McCoy) were pulled over by a cop last summer when they were driving around the backroads.  She goes on to say when Cameron questioned why they were being stopped, it scared her.  She feels if Joss and Cam were not there, she would have likely been pulled out of the car and pinned to the ground by the cop.  Trina notes she put aside her fear and never said anything to them, because they would never understand.  Trina tells Cam he needs to realize how lucky he was the other night when nothing happened to him after his run in with police.

You can watch the conversation below in scenes with Briana Nicole Henry and Brooke Kerr.

Then let us know, did you like how GH wove this social message into the story?  Share your thoughts in the comment section.
