Moonlight star Alex O’Loughlin has “it”… the certain “something” that actors who captivate us have… actors who bring us to moments of sheer passion … passion beyond the written word.
And he has “it” in spades. There is a “yearning” in Mick St. John, a yearning O’Loughlin can convey with a mere glance or a rather encompassing stare. The man simply exudes a raw, somewhat primal state of sensuality. He does this in the same way another actor might blink or breath … it’s natural.
