Now unrecognizable, Heartbreak High star Scott Major

Indeed, in a new appearance this week, Heartbreak High, Home and Away and Neighbours star Scott Major looked quite different.

Peter Rivers of Heartbreak High looks vastly different with an enormous beard from his time on the hit drama.

Scott Major, 45 – who starred in the hit Aussie soapie for 38 episodes – looks unrecognisable due to his incredible amount of facial hair.

After landing a spot on Home and Away, Major first shot to fame in the '90s, and he soon made a name for himself as bad boy Peter on Heartbreak High when he was just 18 years old.

And 27 years later, the star let the show's producers know that, one more time, he would love to step back into his heart-throb shoes.

It comes after a reboot of the ABC and Network Ten show airing on Netflix was announced back in December.

He unveiled the news on Cameo's video sharing website, wearing a snapback hat, hoodie and sporting an incredibly cool beard, where he charges fans up to $20 a pop to obtain personal videos from him.

He told one fan in the video: "I want to be part of the reboot, I actually contacted the manufacturers." I contacted the manufacturing company and I contacted the CEO. Basically, I've said I'll do something.

They do not want me, but maybe I'm not talented enough? Perhaps my period at Heartbreak High has ended. Oh, I hope not...

He added: "I'm so happy that they're doing it again and I hope it captures the essence captured by the original one."

As he has received 30 five-star ratings on the web and responds to requests within only three days, Scott obviously knows how to give fans what they want.

From 1994 to 1999, Heartbreak High ran and observed the shenanigans of students who attended Hartley High.

Scott was joined as Nick Poulos, Sarah Lambert as Christina Milano and Katherine Halliday as Rose Malouf on the show by the likes of Alex Dimitriades.

When he learned that Peter was being cut from the program, the star was really emotional.

"It was like being in a relationship with someone you're happy with and want to spend the rest of your life with, and then having them say, 'Sorry, I don't want you anymore,'" he said earlier, reflecting on the moment.

Scott has carried on his desire to work in the soap world after his alter-ego was axed from the popular' 90s program.

From 2008 to 2013, he played the role of Lucas Fitzgerald in Neighbours and even had a go at directing some episodes.

In some UK soaps, the actor has also appeared, including one episode of Doctors in 2007.

His most recent work includes directing the 2018 TV drama Playing for Keeps.
