They Say …… Thank you for your time #AlexOLoughlin

A beautiful fan story posted in October on Twitter.


  • From Rachel on Twitter:

From the bottom of my heart, thank you so much x @HawaiiFive0CBS @PLenkov


I just wanted to thank this amazing guy for stopping to have this picture taken with myself and my daughter. He has no idea what it meant us both of us.

We lost our other daughter a few years back and the only thing that would make me smile, even just for an hour, was H50.

We had been to Honolulu twice before and never come close to seeing you  guys film. That Tuesday we got up at 5 am and headed down to the lagoon, still not knowing it was the show being filmed. When we saw the shrimp truck it was amazing.

We sat there for 6 hours watching take after take. Alex was up for the final scene but they had to call it off and I was just so excited to have seen him in the distance although daughter, who had only found out that morning, was sad because she had written three letters asking if for my 40th (which we were there celebrating) could meet him … not fully understanding that fan mail can’t always be read.

My husband knew about the letters and had managed to get Alex’s attention. He was so incredibly generous with his time. She was hyperventilating and I was overwhelmed but his beautiful nature had him calming us both down and making us laugh. She has not stopped talking about the encounter since.

You absolutely made our holiday, year and everything else. Thank you from the bottom of my heart.

Mahalo and aloha from Rachel and Sophie (the mad Aussies from the Harbour car park)

Was so lucky to meet this guy in September. He was charming, funny and so kind to my 14 yo daughter, who was beside herself having met him. Must admit my heart raced too. Red heart#AlexOLoughlin #H50

    Oh, how wonderful. Just when I think that there is no way I can love Alex anymore than I already do, he goes and does something like this! He one-upped my beliefs, and I love it! Every time I say “Could he get any better?” He does! I gotta keep saying that! Thank you for telling me about this, and supplying the awesome picture🤗

    That’s why I love him although I have not met him, but hearing from other people how down to earth he makes me glad. I enjoy Alex’s producing behind the camera but, I love seeing him in front of the camera even more. Love H5O.

    Is this just the sweetest post? I started to cry when I read that they had lost a daughter and that the only thing that brought any happiness to the mom was H50. Alex is a dear heart who would calm you down and just start a normal conversation with you until you got over your shock and awe at meeting him. Extra special sweet that they’re all Aussies!

  6. Alex is making a difference!
    I little bit of kindness means so much for others. Someone should show him the words of this mother.

    • It was originally tweeted to the official Hawaii Five-0 CBS account and to Peter. Hopefully they will show it to Alex.
      Maybe if she tweeted it to Meaghan or Beulah it would have been more of a sure thing to reach Alex’s eyes.

      • That’s exactly what I am thinking. Don’t think that PL will show him. But maybe I am wrong. He could have re-tweeted it…

          Meghan, Beulah and Katrina are all masters of social media. One of them has to find it and show it to Alex. It’s such a beautiful post. I just scanned Peter’s Twitter and I can’t find the post there. Alex has a huge cast and crew who can find this lovely post and show it to him. It’s so touching, sweet, grateful and profound. The loss of the daughter made me cry.


    • Maybe the mom had the opportunity to tell him herself. In any case, if he saw the pic with the blissful face of the daughter, he must have been delighted to be able to give so much pleasure and comfort to these two compatriots of his.


  7. Beautiful so much for sharing this….thank you.
