They Say ….. #AlexOLoughlin is a Natural Leader

“Alex is a natural leader. He takes control and makes things happen on-set – and in his personal life too.

He’s The General, and I think that comes across in this role.”

  1. Yes, the natural leader! Scott saw it very well! But in addition to Alex, Scott too! Two real alpha males

    Alex was the perfect choice, in every way possible, to play Steve McGarrett.
    On another subject, I just saw that the Season 10 DVD set will be available on July 28, at Amazon. I hope that isn’t just for the US.

    I lost it at “he controls and makes things happen”. Sweet dreams for me tonight. Only disagree with about 2 alpha males. There can be only one alpha. That’s why they are the alpha.

    Alex is way more Alpha than Scott. Scott deferred to Alex. You can see it in their body language. Alex was the natural leader on the show. You can’t have two leaders constantly bumping heads. Scott was smart enough to not create tension and unrest on the set.

    They might have had disagreements about how to do scenes because both actors had powerful viewpoints for their characters. Scott was just like Danny–argue like crazy and then let Steve do it his way. I always loved those scenes. Danny/Scott ultimately let Steve/Alex take the lead. That’s my perception of their dynamic. Let Alex have all the headaches and responsibilities of being the leader. It’s a heavy load.

    Sure, there can only be one alpha man in a team. If there are two, the weakest one must take a step back. That is, provided he is intelligent, which Scott is. Had he fighted to be the pack leader, the strain between him and Alex would have rubbed off on Steve and Danno.

    And Scott is right when he says that Alex is a natural leader. I mean, I’m sure that Alex did not arrive on Day One with his sword in his hand to assert his right to be the leader. It’s simply that real, genuine leaders are natural leaders.

    That’s why I believe Alex will develop big projects in the future, this abhorrent pandemic permitting. Maybe not those we would like, but big projects after all.

  8. Yes, he is a natural leader. Good leaders, real leaders are natural leaders. I wouldn’t describe him as The General, he does not need to be ‘commanding’.
    He leads ‘on screen’ so to speak because he is expressive, detailed, in-depth and always in the moment, never phoning it in. This is why he owns the screen, even playing opposite to children or animals (what is a killer for most actors if you ask me 😉 ), and at the same time is letting the others do their thing too.
    And he leads ‘backstage’ by example. He is generous, humble, kind, caring about all the other people who had a job because he did his job, never phoned it in, never wanted or bargained special treatment; he fulfilled his exhausting schedule for ten years, 6 and sometimes 7 days a week and not just some days per month.

    • For me, the difference is – He ‘IS’ the General, and not he plays the general over others or acts like a general.
      Somebody who “plays” a role needs to act commanding and force some sort of leadership. But somebody who is a good “General”, just leads naturally without having to be commanding. 😀
