They Say ….. #AlexOLoughlin is a Wonderful Human Being

Steve Kaplan today on SEASON 2 Epi 14 of the Long Ku Podcast with Gabriele Lehnen

Alex is a very close friend of mine. He’s a wonderful human being.

He’s a good father, he’s a good husband, he’s a good actor, he’s a good friend.

He was actually part owner of this company for a while too.

He’s just a good .. good  person.

Link to the full episode with Steve:

”Learn from a U.S. Navy Seal how to overcome your fears!”😎

My Guest: Steve Kaplan, U.S. Navy Seal & Founder Trident Adventures Hawaii

It is really worth your while to listen to the full interview, but here is the transcript of the part where they speak about Alex.

Transcript

(From Timestamp 22:48)

Steve: And here’s the thing, the guy on Hawaii Five-0, the main actor – he plays Steve McGarrett – his name is Alex. He’s a very, very close friend of mine …

Gabriele : You know my mom – the biggest fan….

Steve: Yeah

Gabriele:  …took the video.

Steve: I know, that’s right. I remember.

…. But Alex is a very close friend of mine. He’s a wonderful human being.

Gabriele : Yes.

Steve: He’s a good father, he’s a good husband, he’s a good actor, he’s a good friend.

He was actually part owner of this company for a while too.

He’s just a good .. good  person.

And he brought me on … that was the episode that he directed, the first time. That was in Season 8 – the episode he directed and he wrote the role around my personality, my character …

Gabriele: Navy SEAL

Steve: …. the way I talk and everything and I still sucked at it.

[They go on talking about him being a actor and stunt guy and his respect for what actors and stunt people do]

Steve – personal friend of Alex and he is also the owner of Trident Adventures.

My Thoughts

  • Of course we first saw Steve Kaplan on Hawaii Five-0 Episode 8:24 , but that was not the  episode which Alex wrote and directed. Alex was just listed as “story by” – meaning that the idea of the episode story was from him.

The first episode Alex directed was Episode  8:18, the 2nd one was Episode 9:17 and the 3rd and last one was of course Episode 10:07, which he wrote and Directed – and which Steve Kaplan was a part of as an actor as well. 

  • If I understood  Steve correctly this also clarifies the fact that Alex is no longer, as an co-owner, part of Trident Adventures – as we suspected last year in May 2021  already, when we saw Alex and Beulah just listed as co-founders and no longer as part owners of Trident.

Trident Adventures (November 2019)
Aloha everyone! We just wanted to take a moment and send out a personal invitation to you from the owners of Trident Adventures Hawai’i. Come join us for some fun!

And a dive video from Gabriele:

If you look closely (see the back tattoo peekaboo) you will see that Alex was taking part in this dive with them.

  1. Thank you for finding and posting. I too already thought that Alex is no longer a co-owner of Trident Adventures. First the company is on solid feet now and as it was said when Alex &Co founded that company, it was to help two Seal friends start a bussiness in their private life when they retired. And this showed a little part of what a great person Alex is. Now they very likely can run on their own and according to their homepage, they also changed their bussiness a bit to offer more combat stuff and hunting and not “only” adventure.
    2. I´m happy to read what Steve Kaplan said about Alex. It´s nice to hear this from a close friend of his. We knew already that Alex is a good person, don´t we? 🙂 ❤
    3. That answers two of the questions I had: Alex is still having fun with them and in close contact at least with Steve Kaplan and he still is an actor. Maybe I´m reading to much into this interview but that´s how I perceive it.
    And I liked the two Seals on DNA and also on the other two episodes a lot.

    • Sorry typo. The last sentence should be: And I liked the two Seals on DNA and (also) the other two episodes a lot.” If I remember correctly they were on one episode (DNA) that Alex directed but on other episodes of H5O.

  2. It’s like Alex said: Quality people attract quality people!
    And btw, is it weird that I don’t need the backtatt peekaboo to spot him? I recognize his legs.
    Yep. That’s me. Don’t tell anyone.

    Thanks FOYeur. It’s always great to hear how those who have been fortunate enough to have come into contact with Alex whether at work play or otherwise hold him in such high regard. He truly is special as we know.❤
