This post has been in a draft here for ages, but never got finished ….. It is actually an old article by the late Christa Wittmier.

– The original article is unfortunately no longer available 

Honolulu weekly – 2012: What’s going on?

At the end of each season of Hawaii Five-0, the cast and crew attend a wrap party to finish their work for that season. We as viewers don’t get to see a lot about those events.

It is understandable, because it is a work event where people can let their hair down with their families and they might be restricted from posting too many pictures from it.

25 April  2012

The only night I managed to get anywhere was Sunday, which was one for the books. Cycle City hosted one of the best wrap parties yet that Hawaii Five-0 has had.

I didn’t even know you could do events there. They are pros. The place was transformed. Hogs were moved off the motorcycle showroom floors and replaced with cocktail tables and a stage.

Anuhea jammed to a hugely receptive crowd of almost 500 guests and I found myself spending way too much time staring across the room at an extremely attractive Alex O’Loughlin, laughing and talking with his crew.

I remember the first time I met him and he turned my hand over after shaking it to look at the tattoo on my wrist. He kept holding my hand as I told him how each star represented a different country that I had traveled to, and I found myself drawing out the story as long as I could so he wouldn’t let go. That is one sexy man.

Grace Park, Masi Oka, Taylor Willy and Daniel Dae Kim were also there with Executive Producer Peter Lenkrov to celebrate the wrap of Season 2.

For two years in a row, the scheduling was not in their favor as they all had to go to work super early the next morning but it didn’t stop them from dancing their faces off until the very end.

I seriously love those party monsters.

Congratulations on a great second season. I can’t wait to see who comes out to guest-star for Season 3 (please bring back Reggie; please bring back Reggie).

And some of the pictures shared from that evening:

Unfortunately there is also a sad part to this story, because Christa is no longer with us.

Christa passed away peacefully on Thursday, January 3, 2019, after a three and a half year battle with cancer, at her sister’s home in Hutchinson, MN at the age of 43 years.

The other sad part is that I could not find any picture of Christa and Alex together.

But as you can see she had a great  sense of humour, reflected in this next Twitter post.

  • From Twitter in 2015

“Never want to ask Alex for a photo but look- here’s one we are kind of in together !”

The two of them are in 2 different pictures on the same newspaper page, but on top of each other. 🙂

 

Over the years Christa was regularly seen in pictures with some of the other cast and crew members of Hawaii Five-0. She also made a few Social Media posts about them and Alex.

As a DJ she also provided music for a number of the Hawaii Five-0 events.

Here are some of those memories from her Instagram, Twitter & Facebook

It says: “POW! WOW! HAWAI’I” written on Alex’s bag.  

Christa was a founding director for the POW! WOW!, Hawaii art festival and the creator of many popular signature events on Oahu.

It looks like Christa was DJ at the Season 3 Wrap Party in 2013. Alex attended – so we hope she played his songs.
 We are not even sure if he ever attended any of the Wrap parties after Season 3 – no pictures as evidence.

In the end this article became more that just a Wrap Party post.

Just like so many of these words from Christa reflect and  also seen in this last picture of Alex’s fans

– He is loved and adored by so many and for so many reasons!

Thank you Christa for sharing some of your thoughts and experiences around Alex with us all.

We are sure you are still dearly missed by your many loved ones and those who could spend time with you!

    Thank you, Foyeur. So sad about Christa. I’m glad that she had such
    wonderful experiences with Alex, just more evidence of what a caring, thoughtful person he is.

    Thank you for your wonderfully touching tribute to Christa. It is so very desperately sad when someone dies so young. It makes me think of the film Chasing Mavericks about the young surfer Jay Moriarity and the ‘Live like Jay’ slogan. It is so easy to get caught up in the day-to-day monotony of life that you just take it for granted that you will get all the time in the world to do the things you want to do. Enjoy every day, fellow AOL-fans . . .

  3. It´s sad when someone looses the fight and especially at such a young age. I´m glad she had the chance to meet Alex and the cast and had a wonderful experience meeting him. When you read something like this, you are reminded of how precious every minute of your life is. Thank you for sharing text and pictures.

  4. Oh no. I didn’t know she no longer among us. 😥F U cancer. Around these days, one year ago, one of my long time AOL fandom friends died. She was the best, THE BEST, reviewer and feedback giver ever. After every new chapter I finish of my story I always think about what she would have said.
    So, on a lighter note: Did Alex change clothes during that party and why did he do it without some girls and their smartphones? And did he add a watch? Or are those two different parties?
    If so, ignore me. It’s hot. On screen and off screen.

    • You are right – I will make a correction. It’s been such a longggggg time since these pictures came out – I sometimes confuse myself. :lol:.
