Whatever happened to Revhead from Home and Away? Gavin Harrison looks VERY different from his days as a ’90s bad boy – as he reveals his surprising new career away from the spotlight
He was famous in the late ’80s and early ’90s for playing Summer Bay bad boy Morris ‘Revhead’ Gibson on Home and Away.
But three decades later, Gavin Harrison has turned his back on the spotlight to pursue a career in advertising in Los Angeles.
The 48-year-old told The Morning Show on Monday that he decided to quit acting because he was more interested in working behind the camera.
‘When I started out, I was always doing both [acting and working behind the camera]. And acting really acting really took off and put me on a trajectory in that direction,’ he explained.
Gavin continued: ‘But then as things played out and I got a bit older, I began thinking that I really love directing, film making and photography.’
A far cry from prancing down the beach in board shorts, Gavin now spends his days creating advertising material for big-name brands including Tesla, Nissan and BW.

A man of many talents, Gavin also works as a part-time music producer, having previously composed songs for several Australian bands.
During the interview, the former teen heartthrob also reflected upon his time filming alongside Naomi Watts – who played his sister on Home And Away.
‘She was so sweet and gentle and genuine,’ he gushed.

‘When we got together and did scenes, she was really caring and was a pleasure to work with. We would hang out and play guitar offset and really hang out,’ Gavin said.
‘She is amazing and has done lots of amazing things,’ he added.
Since appearing on Home And Away, Naomi has gone on to star in Hollywood blockbusters including King Kong (2015), The Ring (2002) and Birdman (2014).
