“There’s something about this show. I work on this show and it’s kind of a reboot of a really famous show that we all know and love. We have done our best to kind of remain …… keep as much integrity, and tip our hats where we can to the old show. But we are doing something different. And I think we do what we do well. But there’s a lot of magic moments along the way. We’ve had huge amounts of support from people all around the world. We have incredible guest casts that come through. We had Terrence Howard on for like one day last month. I don’t know how to explain that other than it’s a testament to what we are doing here and to what we’ve all created. It makes it all feel like we’re meant to be here, and that we’re meant to be doing what we’re doing.”Alex O’Loughlin, HNN, Sept 2012

“My fans are the best. I sometimes feel bad because I don’t do (social media) ….. I have a Facebook page, but I’m really terrible at updating the blogs and stuff like that. I don’t Twitter. I don’t do any of the other things. I even have an assistant to help me open my mail. I’m so unorganized.” Alex O’Loughlin, HNN, Sept 2012

“My number one priority, is to represent you people of Hawaii. I thank and love you all so much for bringing me into your family, and bringing me and my family in; inviting us, to become Kama‘aina. And filling our lives with Aloha every day. “Alex O’Loughlin, Speech at SOTB 2012

“I’m just so thrilled that we, the people of Hawaii and I now include myself in that, have the opportunity to celebrate the show. It’s not only terrific for the economy, but it’s great for our spirits here on this Island. We get to tell stories. We get to tell Hawaiian stories.

We get to be integral with the culture that is so old and so rich and important, you know. Dude you guys deserve this you know. And we should never not do it for as long as the show is on air. In fact even when we go off the air, I think we should still do it.Alex O’Loughlin, HNN interview at SOTB, Sept 2012

That’s the old rule man, no kids or animals! But I love working with kids, I’ve never not enjoyed it. But then again maybe I’ve never had a bad kid. The thing about working with children is that there are no walls there, no barriers between you and their vanity. When you’re working with adults, we all have vanity, narcissism, whatever we have that has to do with our ego can potentially get in the way of our work. With kids, there is a purity and an innocence regardless of what character they’re playing within them. And so to tap into that is just extraordinary to work with because it’s so true.Alex O’Loughlin , TV Addict, April 2009,

“I’ve never had a 3rd season of my own show. So, this is new territory. And there’s something, that happens between the 2nd and the 3rd season as an actor, ……. I mean the job security stuff. And that sort of stuff, it’s ….. Something settles down. And I kind of came into this a little more relaxed and a little more less weary of  what was going to happen.” – Alex O’Loughlin, Press Day, 10 November 2012

“And I really like the stories we’ve done so far too. It really becomes a family affair, you know. After this amount of time. I mean, any sort of film set is, is  kind of like a family. Well that’s what you hope for. But after you spend years and years together, and you weed out people that aren’t happy, or don’t fit or whatever. You end up with a really close group of people. And there’s a familiarity that comes along with that. And that kind of turns into a well oiled machine.

In the first year, particularly, you’re ironing out a lot of kinks, you know. And so, once they’re all out and everything is comfortable as it is now, you get to focus on specifics and on the play itself.” – Alex O’Loughlin, Press Day, 10 November 2012

Some great news for this week, is that the Facebook page  “Alex O’Loughlin Updates” of the AOLO fansite came back online.

But unfortunately none of the other Alex O’Loughlin fan pages on Facebook that went missing came back – that we know of.

And there are still disgruntled people who target real fanpages by reporting them – that is really sad!! 

Thank you to those in the fandom who keep the fun alive without all sorts of drama ……..

    Apologies, I haven’t been following. What legitimate Alex Facebook websites have been taken down? I don’t follow Facebook or Twitter. I ONLY get my Alex news here.

    Thank you so much for these gorgeous posts. Please keep up the good work!!


    • Legitimate is not really the word I would use. ….

      We talk about real fan pages about Alex done by fans of Alex to be enjoyed by other fans of Alex. – Those we regard as real fan pages.
      Of course, Alex himself is not involved with any of them and NONE are official fan pages or groups.

      But there are many fake pages made by scammers who are trying to fool fans into thinking Alex is involved with it and they scam people. We have done a number of posts about that in July and August – you can scroll back and have a look at them.

      Unfortunately, some vindictive fans have reported some real fan pages for violations and Facebook just reacted by closing them down without any real proof.
      Now one is back and we are glad.

    What legitimate Alex Facebook sites have been taken down. I don’t follow Facebook or Twitter. I ONLY get my Alex news on this site.

    Thanks for the great posts!! Please keep them coming.


  5. Just love his comment about working with kids. He is a rare specimen of an actor who still owns the screen when working with kids and at the same time is giving them space to do their thing. That makes these scenes so awesome and special.
    The child actors and actresses appreciate that as one can see in their body languages. And that makes them better…
