#AlexOLoughlin …. I’m just happy to be working

I was shooting the pilot [Three Rivers], when I got offered the movie [The Back-Up Plan]. I took the movie, and then the pilot got picked up.

So, of course, you think about that stuff like, “What if the show goes for seven years, and I could’ve had a film career?”

You can’t do that. You have to put it out of your head.

I’m just happy to be working.

My Thoughts

  • Eight years later. Not Three Rivers, but a whole other show already running for 7 years later. So many unknown factors for an actor. Did Alex in fact maybe miss out on a movie career by doing these shows with CBS? Is Steve McGarrett and Hawaii Five-0 the show he will be known for, or will there be more ……… ?
  • I love the gratitude he had back then for being a working actor. I kind of feel that although he would have liked to have done more diverse roles, also on the big screen, by now, that he still is just happy to be a working actor. Hopefully his gratitude and dedication will rewarded with something great.
