Here are the few blessing videos that popped online. The live streaming was very unfortunate for some of us. Luckily they were shared later on. Yey! Unfortunately Foyeur was tied up with RL and that meant I had to give a go at the transcript. Oy… Well this is what my ears (and imagination) caught 😉 Btw Dusty was so cute on the set 🙂
Interview with Hawaii News Now, Billy V.
Interviewer: Let´s talk about Dusty. Dusty is not an official H50 member, this guy is, Alex O`Loughlin, at an undisclosed location here in Oahu.
I: Alex, you said your favorite thing about Hawaii Five-0 is the community stuff that you get to do out there?
Alex: I did say that and actually it is great. It´s our (???hawaiian word) responsibility. It´s…everybody that has a job, that pays well and anything where we get a bit of exposure in the public eye, is your responsability to use that to do things for other people. But I get a lot of joy from that.
I: You also said you get a lot of joy in the off season, you´ve been doing some house building?
A: Yeah, I have. We just moved into our new house…I bought a little Ossipof house 4 years ago, 4 and half years ago and lived in it for 3 years and it was falling down around us during that time. I just redesigned the fit and rebuilt the whole house with a new wing. So it´s a big deal. It´s satisfying, creative effort for me.
I: A lot of people talk about the beard, of course, and when you get into the new season, that always seems to be the buzz. Your thoughts on the beard?
Alex: I don´t really have any, I call it my vacation face…My sort of catch frase is sort of “they pay me to shave, I do the acting for free” so you know…I´m waiting for that first cheque, you want me to shave my face, where´s my cheque man (laughing)
I: Now let´s talk about season 6, Hawaii Five-0, excited to be back in the roll of things?
Alex: Yeah, absolutely. I mean…I´ve been here for 5 years doing this and first of all I have never done something for this long before, so it´s all new for me from here on…been new for the last couple of years…I think to myself, what am I going to do when this is over, you know. I don´t want to leave Hawaii, so, the longer the show goes the less I have to worry about those, sort of practical, day in the life, sort of things. But ah, I´m very grateful, very glad.
I: Family is good?
Alex: Family is great, thanks. Yeah…my boys are incorrigible and determined, but they are great, thank you.
I: Love to the family and congratulations, here we go season 6.
Alex: Right on, it´s going to be a good one.
I: Alex O´Loughlin talking with us, Steve McGarrett. Hawaii Five-0, they are going right on to filming but he may wait a little bit. I think he´s got a bit more of rest time.

Alex with Star-Advertiser
Alex: I´ve never been this far in a show before, it´s been 6 years, 6 season and I´m very excited. By now we certainly know what to expect as far as the workload goes. There´s a certain ease that goes along with getting this far in a show as well. So I think there´s a comfortability and ease now.
Alex: I´m always looking forward to what the writers are coming up with. I do the same thing every day, I like it when the story shifts and they throw me a couple of left ones. It´s good, gives me something to do creatively. So I look forward to doing that, seeing what they´ve got in store.
Here´s the video from Star-Advertiser

Q: Do you do anything different in the morning for the first day, do you have a routine?
Alex: I´ve gotta shave, that´ll be different.
Q: When was the last time you had to shave?
Alex: I´ve had a couple of little trims, but for the most part it has been unfinished work.
Adding some caps of Alex in his vacation face 😀
Ps Anyone else think Dusty´s vacay just started? Poor girl having all that incorrigible boy energy at home 😉
