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?
