Canberra-born O’Loughlin, 33, made his mark in Oyster Farmer, then hit the big time with Moonlight and Three Rivers. But has he a back-up plan?

What did your loved ones say about you working with Lopez?
Alex: A couple of my mates are like, “She’s so hot! You get to kiss her!” But more of my American friends made a big deal about it. Celebrities are so much more of a real thing in the US.
So what was she like to kiss?
Alex: It was really weird because [her husband] Marc Anthony is a friend. It’s weird making out with someone who’s not your partner in front of cameras and people. I’m not one of those people that gets joy from it.
What’s your back-up plan?
Alex: I don’t have one. I’ve always had faith in my original plan. There have been times when I have doubted myself and my decisions, but then I go, “No, dude, you’re on track.” I thought I was going to be an actor when I was 9 and then I forgot about it and did a lot of other things. I worked in restaurants and wanted to become a chef. But I came back to the acting, I love it so much.
- Alex the chef – that could have been interesting and tasty to experience. But for that you most probably would have had to travel to a restaurant somewhere in Oz. Lucky for us he became an actor and now the whole world can enjoy him and his talent and of course his own tastiness …. 😛
