Another story, originally posted by site owner Mizz, on the old Alex fansite ‘Alex O’Loughlin Rocks’Of course the footage of the scenes from Feed, we added ourself 🙂
Believe me, the office is not the best place to be when that happens to you. No matter that you’ve received a message from “Mr. O’Loughlin” before. Forget poise, forget dignity, forget self-control. Where’s the diazepam when you need it?
Back to my message to Alex… Here’s what I asked (the relevant bit):
Just a quick question: I’ve been breaking my head over the pendant that Michael Carter wears in FEED. What is it of and what’s the significance of it?
And this is Alex’s response:
The pendant Michael wears is Mother Mary. He worships women in his own special way and feels he needs support and protection from the outside world. What better female figure to believe in right?
He also believes that she will help free him from his sins.
Hope you can rest easy now! haha
How sweet of him to care for my peace of mind 😉
Below is a cap of the actual MySpace exchange. Times are local (at 2:33 AM his time is when I sent the message and I received his response at 5:41 PM my time), so it took him only a little over 7 hours to reply.
By the way, his answer also explains the significance of the statuette: it too is of Mother Mary. If you haven’t seen FEED yet, then I hope this post has made you curious enough to do seek it out — it’s available on DVD!
