Lost in Translation – #H50 Exclusive : #AlexOLoughlin Reveals the Secrets of Success for S10

From time to time there are articles in non-English magazines and media. Many times they contain some small bits which are not in other articles. We try to translate them as accurately as possible, taking in consideration the context of what was said and how Alex would say it. Most of the time things are lost in direct internet translations.

For Cine Pop

Hawaii Five-O has had a long run on the small screen since its original debut in 1968. And following in the footsteps of its predecessor – which featured 12 seasons, which aired until 1980, the new version is heading for his 10th season, on track for a long run.

During an exclusive interview with Cinepop, the star Alex O’Loughlin reflected on the cultural impact that production has, emphasizing how it manages to stay refreshed after so many years on air

 

 

In a conversation with our editor-in-chief Renato Marafon  O’Loughlin said:

“I think there are two answers to this question: How to continue to keep the show fresh, generally speaking – which is not a question  for me to answer, but for the showrunner.

Then, how I can keep it fresh – It is difficult. It is so much easier to settle for what you have and not to feel the pressure. You need to keep studying your work, you need to maintain a good work ethic and keep on striving to deliver a true version, every single time. I think that is essentially how I  keep it fresh for myself. ”

What happened? And why is McG lecturing me? 😏

 

The star also went on about the story of his character, Steve McGarrett, who has gone through a number of different circumstances over the past nine seasons. And with the start of the 10th season, he pondered about where Steve finds himself emotionally at this point in the story:

 

“He’s tired (laughs)! He’s been through a lot emotionally, physically and psychologically, so I think… it’s hard to talk about him objectively, when in fact I experience him subjectively. But I think there’s a limit to how much a person can handle before that person reaches the level of  being a superhero. And he’s not a superhero. He is a regular guy.

But this journey has been a very long one and I look forward to see what they envisage for his future. I think he needs a little change. He hasn’t had a girlfriend in a long time. He’s only got a dog and I think he needs something new. ”

 

It is very short article, but still interesting to see how Alex feels about his character . My guess is that we will see a few new dimensions to the character or new situations for Steve this season. Think we will need to keep an open mind and ….. enjoy the ride!
