#AlexOLoughlin Talking About Three Rivers – TV Guide Photoshoot – BTS Interview

Another transcript of an old interview, loaded with gifs, cause he looked so funny 😀 Enjoy!

It’s called Three Rivers. It’s set in Pittsburgh, where the three rivers of that area meet.

It’s a transplant hospital and it’s the best in the world.

And I play a keen young cardiothoracic surgeon. My character is actually based on a real person, a surgeon called Gonzo Gonzalez-Stawinski who works out of the Cleveland Clinic.

tvg-iv-1I was obsessed with whether or not I was a fainter. And he was like, “You don’t know until you see it.” And then you either hit the deck or you’re okay.


And he somehow managed to get a cap and a face mask on me, without me even really realising, cause I was engaging.


And into the OR, and I was like, “Yeah, blah blah blah” and he was, “Yeah, blah blah blah, and by the way look at that”. And I was like “Yeah, OhMyGod”. And he was like and off we go and took me out.


It was, sure enough, an open chest cavity, the beating heart, and a breathing set of lungs, and I was “FUCK”.


What did surprise me, was how resilient the human body is on the inside.


And how you can just kind of throw the organs around and sort of move stuff out of the way and stick something in there and wedge that back and put a clamp in there and like tie that off and hold  that.

And I’m like, “Dude that is lungs and a heart and that’s a pancreas. Be careful”.

He took me back in later and I was fine, not for one minute did I feel queasy.


It changed my life. I went away from that, feeling like I’ve made the wrong career choice. Feeling like I called my dad and “I’m feeling upset mate. And I’m just a lowly actor and I’m with all these people who makes such a difference.”


Yes, there’s I bit of like, “If only you were really a doctor. If only you went that way”.

I think, I’d make a really terrific doctor, because I would always have huge jars of candy around the office.


Well, I can juggle. I was bored one summer as a child and I taught myself to juggle. I started with ping-pong balls and I moved on to walnuts. I can juggle anything.


Hi, it’s Alex O’Loughlin from Three Rivers and you are watching TV Guide magazine.com
