Fans are speculating about whether Home and Away actor Lukas Radovich is making significant career moves behind the scenes after he debuted a brand-new look.
The actor spent four and a half years portraying Ryder Jackson on the soap opera, which introduced him as Alf Stewart’s (Ray Meagher) long-lost grandson.
He grew close to Bella Nixon, his best friend, and his on-screen aunt Roo Stewart (Georgie Parker) (Courtney Miller).
Due to continuity issues and the fast-paced nature of the soap opera, actors are typically not permitted to make a significant hair change while appearing on the show.
Since he is no longer required to maintain Ryder’s appearance, Lukas has bleached his dark brown hair to a light blonde. He has had curly, dark brown hair for the past five years.
The celebrity posted several pictures of his new appearance on Instagram and indicated that he was in Auckland, New Zealand.
One supporter even commented that the new hair color “suits” him.
Another person commented, “So different,” and a third person said they “liked it.”
On social media, there weren’t many critical remarks, but one fan complained that he was “too blonde,” which made him “look pale.”
The actor has kept busy by directing a music video and updating his headshots, even though he hasn’t revealed anything about his upcoming acting role.
He also posted some behind-the-scenes videos following the September filming of a short.
He posted on Instagram, “A whackadoodle four day shoot for a short film with the literal dream team.”
Patrick O’Connor (Dean Thompson), a fellow Home and Away actor, was visible on screen as a character who appeared to be a tradesman wearing a hard hat.
Claudia Doumit, an Australian actress best known for playing Victoria Neuman on The Boys, was also mentioned by Lukas.
Fans loved the sneak peek, with one describing it as “exciting.”
A second said, “Can’t wait to see the results mate.”
