22 August 29th, 2014 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!  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)!

  2. PatsyRasmussen says:

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


  3. Claudia Kurzyna says:

    I like him with the shorter hair.


  4. TorontoTom says:

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


    rebecca1 replied

    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…


  5. Donny says:

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


  6. Patrick says:

    “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


    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!!!


    CeeCee replied

    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…


  7. mike says:

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

    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 ;)


  9. Becky says:

    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!


  10. deb says:

    He is gorgeous with the shorter hair. Sexy


  11. Aria says:

    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 .


  12. wolfsmistress says:

    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.


    CeeCee replied

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


  13. Jeff says:

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


  14. JLH says:

    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.


  15. rebecca1 says:

    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…


  16. Jimmy says:

    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.


  17. Lia says:

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