Alex loves to tinker

guitar-ps

I like to tinker. I have lots of guitars and I’m always making a racket. It’s been a hobby my whole life – and I don’t profess to be good at it, but I enjoy it very much.

– Alex O’Loughlin, TV Week, 2008

Before our talk, I saw the actor (Alex) standing in “Video Village,” where the crew members viewed a scene being filmed, while O’Loughlin took turns switching off with Chiklis (who was also directing the episode) playing a bass guitar a crew member had loaned them. (interview on the set of Shield 2006)

August Rush was a wonderful experience for me. I read the script all the way through while I was shooting The Invisible and I loved it and I read it again. I knew I had to be part of that film. I put down 2 tests at a studio in Vancouver. I played guitar and sang a couple of songs and did a few dialogue scenes. (interview in 2008)

It’s a hobby for me, but I’m never alone if there’s a guitar there.

  2. I have always loved that clip of him turning to camera with the fake over-smile. I makes me real smile every time. LOL. Thanks for posting.

  3. I wish the video clip had had the audio of his playing. I can´t believe we haven´t heard that yet (well of course in August Rush, but that was with the band).

  5. I would pay a lot of money to hear him playing! I’ve heard in the old H50 McG did play a guitar sometimes. Why can’t they show that with Alex, WHY???
    Even if he professes not to be good, I doubt that if he is playing his guitars for so long. He is just being humble. Michelle Borth once tweetet that he is really good.
    Come on PTB: Make it happen!!!
    Thanks for this post and – as always – the great quotes. The fake smile gif cracks me up!
