Kimee Balmilero who plays Dr. Noelani Cunha on both Hawaii Five-0 and Magnum PI got the chance for a delightful interview on Think Tech Hawaii with host Rusty Komori of Beyond the lines.
They discussed a number of subjects around her career. Of course the one subject that always interest us here on Intense Study is Alex.
This is the transcript of that part of the interview as well as our video edit of it. We also include the link to the original full interview. We recommend that you also watch it, because they talk some more about Hawaii Five-0 and other interesting subjects around her career and life and outlook on life.
Hawaii can be proud of Kimee!!
Rusty: Let’s talk about Alex O’Loughlin.
Rusty: Okay. He’s super awesome.
Kimee: He is.
Rusty: He’s super awesome.
Kimee: Yeah, he is
Rusty: How much fun do you have with him on the show?
Kimee: You know, Alex is a very great person, a human and artist
Kimee: And I think a lot of people who watch the show, of course they see him as our handsome lead. And he’s a fantastic actor. But he is SO grounded. And I think he is a big reason why the show lasted a long time too.
He is very much …. He has the mindset of, everybody is important as well. And he is very humble that way. So, he’s such a …. He has such a great passion for what he does. Not just with acting but with the … with creating, with storytelling.
You know, recently he just wrote and directed in an episode that was like a movie. I mean it was … it was such an artistic piece of Hawaii Five-0, like you have never it seen before. So, Alex provides such a great strong grounded energy for all of ust … all of us … all of us … to … to really just do our best.
Because he’s always giving his 100% no matter what. And that guy works A LOT. You know, and he’s been working a lot for 10 years. So, when you see your lead and your leader as someone like that, who is always prepared and always showing up for you, you want to show up for them too. So, he’s really great
Rusty: Yep. The episodes that he directed, I absolutely loved it.
Rusty: And it really showcases how great all around he is.
Kimee: Yeah, it showcases that. And it also just kind of reminds you that like, you know …. Like never settle. People might say, “Well he is already such a famous rich actor, why can’t he just stop there?” But no, he has wants. You know, he has a passion for storytelling and sharing. So, and he would never say that he is the best at anything, which I really, really like about him too.
So, he just always looking for the next thing. You know, to keep you going. I think it’s really neat.
