Great to hear Alex talk about his love for the show and his character and what it meant to him.
But it is also clear, that his wife and kids are still the most important part of his life.
Alex: Pretty much every waking moment for the last 10 years of my life, everywhere I go on this planet, in every language, I am McGarrett to all these people.

Alex: You know it started losing Dad, then it was Joe, and then it was Mom.
[Clip from Episode 100]
Alex: I feel a little like McGarrett, has come full circle now. I feel a little like he has done what he set out to do. Learned what he needed to learn. McGarrett has a realization that he needs to roam the earth a little bit.

Alex: Similar to the realization that I’ve had when I work in my garden. I want to be with my kids.
[Clip from Episode 10:15 ]
Alex: Talking about it makes it so surreal. If it wasn’t for the show, I wouldn’t have met my wife, … my kids. Like it’s profound, what this show has meant to me on so many levels. It’s hard to talk about.
