Hawaii News Now visited the set of Hawaii Five-0 on 27 March 2013, while they were shooting Episode 3:21. Specifically the scene where they captured Wo Fat for the 2nd time, after they shot down his helicopter.
This is article on their page and the video that they broadcasted on the news.
Tannya: Locked and loaded, Season 4 of Hawaii Five-0 is a go.
Alex: I love my job. Look at where I live, you know.
Tannya: We visited the stars recently on location at Kualoa Ranch.
Daniel Dae Kim: Every time I get a chance to shoot here, I love it
Tannya: Racing the rain to shoot action scenes.
Tannya: It can be a pretty messy job out here, acting on location for Hawaii Five-0. It started with some Hawaii showers, that has become a muddy mess.
Daniel Dae Kim: This is nothing. I did 6 years on Lost. This is nothing.
Tannya: Five-0 has a grueling 24 show season schedule, and physical 12 hour days.
Daniel Dae Kim: This is now my 9th year in a row on television and I would say I’m learning stamina in a way that I haven’t before.
Tannya: For Alex O’Loughlin, it’s a balancing act, juggling the demands of the job with the demands of being a new dad.
Alex: As soon as I go home, I forget about the business.
Tannya: Don’t believe it?
Alex: What’s that?
Tannya: You don’t believe your own hype?
Alex: I don’t even know what my own hype is.
Tannya: You have such an incredible fan base, you’re a sex symbol. Does your family ground you? I mean that goes out the door.
Alex: Hell yeah! I walk in the door and I get handed a baby, and I’m like, “Oh”, which is what I want, but essentially like within the next 17 minutes, I’m pretty much guaranteed to be covered in either urine, feces, or both.
If that doesn’t ground you, what will?
Tannya: For all the show’s success, O’Loughlin still can’t stand to watch his work.
Alex: Oh, is it sometimes cheesy? Yes. Do I get frustrated? Yes. Do I make it good? I don’t know. I try.
Tannya: With the green light for season four, we asked how long the show can go.
Alex: I signed on for 7, you know. I’ve done 3, so that’s at least another 4. And I mean, you know, I mean, can’t see us going anywhere, can you?
Tannya: No, I hope not.
Tannya: Five-0 fans hope for a long run that rivals another beloved Hawaii show …. [Scene in the helicopter where team sings the Magnum PI theme song at the end of Episode 3:19
- Great to see the ‘unassuming dignity’ with which Alex wore that hideous reddish wig.
- Weird that in later interviews, Alex talks about a 6 year contract.
- Interesting statement that he makes about how he feels about the show: “Oh, is it sometimes cheesy? Yes. Do I get frustrated? Yes. Do I make it good? I don’t know. I try.”
- This is one of the few older videos that I could still find available on HNN site. Many of the other Alex videos no longer exist there. 😦

Well it´s obv a tiny little island, they don´t have that much room for storage 😉
You are soooo funny. 😆
Reblogged this on alixia94's Blog.
The hideous wig. May it rest in peace.
I thought he sad 7season but that would make my day end sted of 6 but we all love ❤ him every much glad he does the h5o for all his woman fans
HI Nicole, he did say 7 seasons in this inteview above, but in a later inteview at the AIF awards in Oct 2013, he talked about 6: https://alexoloughlinintensestudy.wordpress.com/2014/12/18/alex-oloughlin-ponders-future-on-hawaii-five-0%e2%80%b2-25-october-2013/
But on the other hand it does not really matter how many years they sign on for, if the show is canceled.
So far the viewer numbers still look good for them, but I am not sure what other factors will come into play, when a decission about renewal is made. For the Network it is always about the bottom line – are whether they are making money from the show or not. 🙂
It was a cool interview…he is just cool. 🙂
As to the hair, I had forgotten about the wig, but I was sitting here going, “what the Hell have they done to his hair…are they trying to make it look frizzy for some odd reason”?!!! 😆 😆
