Alex O’Loughlin – See what the #H50 #CBSTweetWeek was all about

On Friday 27th September 2013 some good history was made. We got Alex, together with Peter Lenkov and Daniel Dae Kim, live tweeting with broadcast of the Season 4 premiere.

This was the opening tweet:

Watch season premiere right now! Join , & Alex O’Loughlin LIVE tweeting 4.

From there on Alex took over and entertained us for a while. Can’t thank him enough for taking the time to do it. Fans relish the opportunity for any personal contact with him. With so many of us from so far away, it is a wonderful occasion to be able to interact with him a just a little bit.

This is how the rest of the session went:

sabrinanthesand ‏@ItisSabrina : Alex do u hope Wo Fat is McG’s half bro? Also TY bb for #ruokday support XO

Alex: Grover drops trou in a minute. He’s a bad B$%#$

Cassidy Douglas ‏@Cassi_Hopee: Question for Alex: if you could write an episode of #H50, what would it be about?

Alex: I would dress Danno up as a woman and send him undercover in a prostitution ring.

Caroline Kimani ‏@cawaki: question for Alex is your mother coming back to wreak more havoc???
Alex: We hope so!

Alex: In this episode we discover that Chin is actually the real Peter Parker

K Scofield ‏@KScofield2: Holy shit Mcg just took down Chi – he da man!!! crazy mcgarrett is back!
Alex: It was nothing personal. I just gotta help out my girl.401-kick

Alex: Scott’s very funny in this scene

Peter M. Lenkov ‏@Plenkov: Alex is crazy fun. You wouldn’t believe what he’s doing now …
Alex: My children are more mature than I am

Julianne Foley ‏@julsfoley: Okay, after you’ve watched an episode, who thinks the most about a scene they wish they’d done differently?
Alex: I don’t think any of us really do. There’s too much work ahead of us to think about what we’ve completed

Alex: Between this Camaro and Danno’s next car we’re going to be rolling in dad’s Marquis

AmandaLinn ‏@xAmandoLinn: I love your bromance between Danno and Steve!.. Is it the same off camera as well!?

Alex: No. Not anymore– I have a kid.

Jessy Monteith ‏@jessyscott: Any other dance tonight exept the “twerk” Alex?!! we can’t wait to see it !
Alex: No dancing. Only nudity

Gina ‏@giinnnnaaa: HE LANDED THE CHOPPER

Alex: I’ve flown a few times

Alex: This is Academy Award-winning makeup artist Jeff Dawn’s work on Wo Fat. It’s fantastic

Alex: They use that plane to transport cattle to and from the Mainland. It smelled like urine. It was the worst.

Alexis Hilyard ‏@sunflowerstarrs: #AlexOLoughlin are you thinking of making any movies soon?
Alex: As soon as I get time. I can’t wait to do another movie.

Alex: This is Toast–he’s one of my favorite characters. We should bring him back.

Sara ‏@iamsara_c: have you or anyone else been seriously hurt on the set?
Alex: Yes. Many times over

Alex: To all the Five-0 fans out there: Without you there is no us. We love you!

I think this was such a nice fun event. Hope we will experience something like this again. Like I said in the beginning there are so many of us living so far away, and we will never get the opportunity to ever see Alex in real life. So interacting with him like this is a great bonus!

  1. For those who don’t tweet and get a little overwhelmed with following twitter feed, me included, this post was fantastic! Thank you FOYeur for dumbing down twitter for me. This is one thing Alex and I have in common. We both prefer not to tweet. I am happy for those who did get to communicate with him, and that he did seem to have a lot of fun doing it! I think with DDK and PL there, he knew they’d support him if he got overwhelmed. Leave it to Alex to turn something he doesn’t like into so much fun! I might get there someday, but until then, this is where you’ll find most of my comments.

    His sense of humor is priceless and actually you can feel in every word he says that he is a very authentic person. Like when this woman asked:
    “Okay, after you’ve watched an episode, who thinks the most about a scene they wish they’d done differently?
    Alex: I don’t think any of us really do. There’s too much work ahead of us to think about what we’ve completed.”
    He is so smart, I simply adore him for all of this.
    TY so much FOYeur for making this tweeds ‘easy’ for us. I have an account and went through all the tweets, but never could really say who tweeted what. May be I am retarded after all.

    • Alex is smart, he mentioned it in some interview, that his friends describe him as smart. My perception of actors/actresses are that they usually appear less schooled than the average person, but in Alex´s case, it really isn´t true. I think he has read a lot of books. He is very articulate. It is a pleasure always to read his thoughts. Twitter would be a hoot with him poking around there 😉
      But having seen the negative side of fans there too, he would probably get tons of crap poured on him, so better his tweeting happened just once (still wish they will have more of these epi tweet alongs this season) 🙂

  8. Thank you so much, FOYeur, for making this accessible also to us who are non-tweeting cavewomen! This is sooo much fun!! But also insightful and informative. Love ❤ !

    On an unrelated note, DDK in that yoga or whatchamacallit position just cracks me up. I do believe he's much more fun than he looks as Chin. The same goes for Chi McBride.

    OK, now I am jealous. It seems that half of you guys have been to Hawaii attending the SOTB or becoming background extras etc. Manu shared it with us, but what about the others? I/We want to know all of it.
    I am still waiting to win the lottery to make my trip to Hawaii and for the meantime it would be nice to get all the information possible:-)

    Great to read, just like everyone else I agree he seems such a nice guy and understand why he doesnt do social media cos there are some horrible people out there. Hope he tweets again. Finally got round to watching Backup Plan last Friday, loved it, it was a lot better than I thought it would be.
