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)!

It looks SO much better! I didn’t like the other hairstyle at all.

Love the new hair. When I saw him for the first time I said to myself who is that guy?

I like him with the shorter hair.

Thank goodness – he looked REE-DIC-U-LOUS with the Little Lord Fauntleroy locks!

ha! I thought he looked cute with his long locks but now that you place lil lord faunt in my mind you’ve ruined him (with longer hair) for me! LOL…

Wow, he looks way better with shorter hair. Nice make over.

“I” am, no less than impressed, with Zachary Garred

say what one will : There was an immediate reaction to his presence on this show

loved to hate : for reals : whats up with him : Nathan loves him

LOL

he’s his own show and is contributing

gotta love them for the huge cast and less than writing

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…

Much better with the short hair. Hope he sticks around awhile.

awesome!!

I love love love da` Dunkleman!!
He will always be the Dunkleman to me..

A great soap character and portrayed by the perfect guy, Zachary Garred!!

He is exciting, mysterious, dark, a bad bad boy!!
— something deep inside his revenge..
A good story!

Long live the Dunkleman! .. he never bores me and he’s a cutie 😉

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 is gorgeous with the shorter hair. Sexy

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.

Even I, who really dislikes this character, applaud him…more power to him.

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…

Lol 🙂

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.

GENERAL HOSPITAL: Finn Tells Violet That Gregory Passed, While Elizabeth Sees He Has Been Drinking

The raw emotions continued on the Wednesday, May 22nd episode of General Hospital as Finn (Michael Easton) and Chase (Josh Swickard) try to come to grips with the death of their father, Gregory (Gregory Harrison).

In story, Gregory passed away in his sleep and his battle with ALS came to its conclusion. In the pick-up, Finn now has to tell his daughter, Violet (Jophielle Love) that her grandfather had passed when she returned home from school.

Gingerly, Finn does his best to explain to Violet what happened. Finn tells her that her grandfather’s heart stopped beating, and he wasn’t in pain. Violet bursts into tears saying that she wants Grandpa to still be here and runs into his room calling out for him. Then, in very touching scenes, Finn follows Violet. She asks her dad where her Grandpa is. Finn explains the paramedics took him away. She cries that she didn’t get the chance to even say goodbye.

Next, Finn hugs Violet and tells his little girl that life is so beautiful, but sometimes it’s unfair. He carries Violet back to the living room, but passes by the bottle of booze. He sits her down on the couch and tells her there will be a funeral in a few days so they will get to say goodbye to Grandpa together. When Violet asks where her Grandpa is now, Finn says he is in heaven.

Later, Elizabeth (Rebecca Herbst) shows up and hugs Violet and Finn. She can see right away that Finn has been drinking, especially after eyeing the glass, and the bottle on the counter. Getting Violet out of the room for a moment, Liz tells Finn she can’t even imagine the pain he must be in right now. So, he should go to a meeting and Violet will come home with her for the night.

Finn puts his foot down that Violet will stay with him. He just watched two total stranger, the paramedics, take his dad away. He says he took one drink to ease his pain. Finn stands up to Liz and says he thinks given the circumstances he has a right to do whatever it takes to get through the day. Next, Liz says she can’t stop him, but she will not have him get drunk with his daughter in the apartment, and so, she is taking Violet with her.

Elsewhere, Chase (Josh Swickard) and Brook Lynn (Amanda Setton) decide at the airport to head back to the Quartermaines, and not take off for their honeymoon, since Gregory died. When they show up at the Q’s, Chase says he wants to be with his brother, but he is giving him time to tell Violet. Next, the newlyweds are greeted by Ned (Wally Kurth) and Lois (Rena Sofer). They tell the two the truth, leaving everyone stunned or in tears. Chase heads out to find Tracy.

Meanwhile, Alexis (Nancy Lee Grahn) is holding on to her good luck charm from Gregory as her reinstatement hearing begins. Little does she know, he has passed away. Alexis finds out she is in a court battle with Fergus Byrne (Lane Davies), the brother of the late Neil Byrne.

So, what did you think of the performances of Jophielle Love and Michael Easton in the touching scenes between Violet and Finn? Will Finn end up on a complete bender? Will his brother Chase show up in time to help him? Comment below.

Following the on-screen death of his on-screen father, Gregory Chase played by Gregory Harrison, longtime soap vet, Michael Easton (Finn, GH) shared his feelings on a touching Instagram post.

Sharing several photos of himself with Harrison. Easton expressed, “Gregory Harrison. One of the finest actors I’ve ever had the privilege of working with and an even better human being. I learned so much from you, my friend, and it was an absolute honor to get to share a stage with you these past three years. Your talent, grace and powerful presence will be greatly missed around the studio. @gnhsurf @generalhospitalabc #gh #fathersandsons”

In addition, Josh Swickard (Chase), Harrison’s other on-screen son told Soap Opera Digest on Gregory’s exit, “Sometimes when you’re working on a show like this and someone plays your dad, it spills over. He really felt like a father figure to me in so many ways. Still does. He’s such a good human being. He’s been around the block in life, in Hollywood, and then some, and he’s just a wealth of knowledge. And he’s a humble human being.”

Nancy Lee Grahn (Alexis, GH) also took to X and shared her sentiments on her time working with Harrison. Grahn said, “Was hard to say good bye to working with my friend, Gregory Harrison. What a treat to share the stage with this guy, and getting to know him was a gift. I truly love & respect everything about him. And I know he’s seeing this. He doesn’t post, but likes to read mine.”
