Never mind that the project you’re in isn’t good; shine as bright as you can. And find the truth. We are either in the truth or we’re not. The truth is difficult to get to. This conversation we are having is the truth. We get to this place and the cameras are rolling, we’re great.”
– Alex O’Loughlin, Actors workshop HI, March 2011.

WOW, another great chapter of Alex’s life 🙂
Thank you so much for this very detailed and informative post
Excellent cyber stalking, I mean note taking by Foyeur 🙂
In the very last picture it looks like Alex is wearing a suit with geeky white tennis shoes. Haha. Only our Alex. This is great work. Amazing job Foueur! 😃
This was SO brilliant and beautifully put together that I am in awe and very grateful to you for all the fantastic memories which for me many times were personal since i have been truly blessed to have been present at a lot of these events.
THANK YOU WITH A BIG HUG
Yeehaa! The diary goes on! I simply love it, it’s brilliant, esp. with your links to remember! ❤
BTW, I think there was a video of his speech at the Relay for Life event? It was an amazing speech in the spur of the moment because of the rain and the stormy weather.
To read about all these events, appearances, efforts concentrated in one post shows how much he is giving back to the people, the community and his committment to the show!
The cherry on top is the quote at the beginning, you know I am a sucker for his "Words of wisdom" as you've perfectly said in your next post!
And everything from after the November 22,2014 as you can tell?, Where following information?
I think what you really wanted to say is “Thank you FOYeur for all your great work! I would love to read more if you find some time besides all the other great stuff you’re doing here!”
Thank you dear leiCa. Yes indeed I am just trying to keep at least the latest news up to date at the moment.
And indeed the next diary post is one of those drafts that were supposed to be finished during this hiatus, but then real life happened….
Thanks for the support – it means more than you would know..
LOL! I’m just reading these again. How cool…tho interesting (as I just read all 4 diaries together), that he has become more and more low key as time has progressed. He does not shout out to fans (tho he is ever-obliging for photos), has long since dropped his MySpace or any social media, does fewer and fewer publicity or Hollywood events, and has settled into a quiet private existence for the most part, helping out the occasional charitable cause, posing with friends and fans, working out, family-vacationing all over the world, but mostly a dad and husband who happens to work on a TV set most of the time. I wonder what the younger, adventurous, ambitious man-with-a-plan version, who was all over the place in LA at the start of Moonlight, meeting and greeting and going to cool-kid evenings out, openings, etc., would make of this settled happy family man. Was this his end game all along, or did this still-busy but somewhat-routine life sneak up on him? He does seem like one happy dude, God bless him!
Thanks for these! Hubs’ snoring wakes me up some nights. This was a fun way to get calm and sleepy again. ❤
