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.”

“Alex is such a pro with this stuff. He’s so gung-ho. It’s great to work with somebody like that. You set up a shot, you’re thinking more likely it’s going to be the stunt double and he’s just like, ‘Get me up there. Let me do it.’

  1. Great post. It´s nice to read those comments. They are right. Alex is one of a kind. Wonderful actor and an awesome person, too. He was to a huge amount responsible for the success of the show and how good H5O was. I just wished, he had been a little more careful with himself. Looking forward to see him again on screen or somewhere else.

    Good morning,

    I have been enjoying your blog posts and your Instagram for a while now – thank you very much for creating these!! However, since you started having trouble with your Instagram, I have not been able to access the page. I always get a message that says that either the page has been removed or the link is broken. I also tried accessing the Instagram page by clicking on the icon on your blog page and still get the same error message. Could you please tell me how I can access your Instagram page?

    Thank you very much, Marsha

    • Hi Marsha
      We blocked quite a number of pages at that time, but I can’t find anything with your name on it on our blocked list. I thought maybe for some reason you got blocked by us by mistake.
      If you have a different name, send it to us here or by e-mail if you do not want it to be seen publicly.
      The messages you get might also indicate that you blocked us. Have a look at your blocked account list, maybe we are there.

        Hi FOYeur, Thanks for the reply. I assume you need my Instagram user name, which is: dressage1989. Please let me know if you need something else. Thanks!

    WOW!! Thank you for sharing this with us. With the recent circumstances I cancelled al my social media. I can’t wait to see all the photos. (I hope you’re thinking to post them here too). Thanks again!

    Thank you, FOYeur. Great post, and wonderful pics. And now I’m sinking in the depths of nostalgia… From which I’m ready to emerge as soon as Alex says the word. I don’t know what it will be, but it will be good. I know it in my bones!

    Thank you so much for this awesome post. I fell in love with Alex all over again. Time passes and you can forget how great he IS as Steve McGarrett and how deeply his cast, directors, producers, crew, friends and loved ones respect, admire and just plain love the man. He always gave 150+% of himself to every aspect of the show. He worked like a maniac to produce the best possible show that he could.

    And thank you for these great photos. Sigh. Hello, gorgeous!!!
