Once again a rather quiet week in the world of Alex fans …..
Life on the Set:
- This was not a good week for any Alex sightings on set. Only stunt doubles and some of the other cast to be seen shooting scenes around town …….. The only picture we got were actually from a week ago on the set.
- A short video:
- More pictures:
and link to our post of it earlier this week.
- I am not sure if these pictures above were from the set and if Kenny is a fan or acquaintance visiting or an actress. She says she was there for a week – so I am not sure if she is part of Episode 6:02 or just a visitor on the set?
News for the week:
- As most of you will know, it is Alex’s birthday on 24 August. Once again the ‘Alex O’Loughlin fans for Donate life’ organized an internet card for Alex. You can find the details of it here. It is easy to participate and one of the surest ways to make sure that your wishes actually might reach Alex, as the card goes directly to his publicist who normally passes it on to him. Here is the direct link to the card. Thanks to Claire setting it up.
- And if you want to give something worth while, there is also a link in the original post to make a donation via Claire to Taylor’s Gift, one of the charities Alex supports.
Something Pretty from other Fans:
- This beautiful “new” to me, old picture of Alex, taken at the Donate Life Awards in June 2010, was posted by alexoloughlin_24.7 this week
Some fandom laughs for the week:
- Posted by @BeeMH50: The perfect description of McGarrett’s weapon in S6 ?? !!
The words of a fangirl:
Alex & Friends:
- This seems to be Alex with a friend from a long time ago. We do not know where or when it was taken? Also posted by alexoloughlin_24.7 – The dilemma of these type of pictures is always whether or not to share them. Are they a threat to Alex’s privacy or not? Most of the time it is easy to determine what pictures to post on open forum and which ones are invading privacy. There are many old pictures without proper sources floating around on boards and pages ….. what do you think?
And the harsh reality of life on Instagram that we also experience with the pictures (mostly Paula’s art of Alex) we post on IG – the person who originally posted the picture get 19 likes, while somebody who takes it and post a crappier version of, it gets hundreds of likes …….
Some Trivia for the week:
- Something I forgot to mention as an upcoming event in last week’s post, was Alex’s colleague Daniel Dae Kim’s birthday on the 4th. A belated birthday wish to Daniel from us!
Some other semi related trivia to it, is that a former colleague of Alex also celebrated her birthday on the same day as DDK this week. The lucky lady is Abigail Spencer, who played Simone, Josef’s freshie, whose arm got
sucked tasted by the very amorous Mick St John in the last episode of Moonlight. Abigail Spencer who is presently starring in True Detectives, also had a chance to work with another old colleague of Alex from Whiteout. Abigail of course worked with Gabriel Macht on Suits for a few episodes. (PS For me her hair in Moonlight was gorgeous)
My Pet Peeves:
- Fans on twitter claiming that they speak for some kind of majority of fans, when they are actually just expressing their own feelings and those of maybe one or two of their fandom “friends”…..
Most ‘interesting’ search for the week:
As you all know, we get a lot of fun from the searches that land people on our site. There were many weird contenders this week, but we decided to keep it above the belt. And this weeks winner…

Thought (Tweet) for the week:
- I really struggled to find something good this week … but a tweet from Erin Cebula gave me a good laugh last night. Oh, the ‘hardships’ of life on the road for a journalist who travels everywhere and meet and become friends with all the celebrities – like Alex. I hope we will see Erin in Hawaii again with SOTB, because she owes us a good longer interview with Alex – it has been a long time since we had one from her. 🙂
- If they work according to normal schedule, filming of episode 6:04 should start and continue throughout this week ….
