240 Days of #AlexOLoughlin as #H50 Steve McGarrett

Last week we started with daily posts of remembering Alex and the 240 episodes of Hawaii Five-0 on our Twitter and Instagram pages. We add quotes with it that also reflect on things about Alex and his career – some comments by others and some quotes from him as well.

Some of you are not on other social media and it might be a good idea to share it here as well …. and also to share it on our Facebook page from now on.

“Out of all the countless superstar celebrities I’ve worked with, as a fellow actor, Alex O’Loughlin and Cary Tagawa are by far two of the most multi-talented, humble, real, down-to-earth, easy to hang with celebs ever! Honored to have met and chat with a true gentleman.”
