240 Days of #AlexOLoughlin as #H50 Steve McGarrett (Part 10)

Before we start today’s post I would like to once again share one of our information pages here on the blog:

Q’s & A’s

Such a lot of false information is re-shared from incorrect sources, and we thought it might be good to remind readers about this Questions and Answers information page of ours where we explain our answers to frequently asked questions and also corrections (and sources for the corrections) to mistakes often found in biographies of Alex around the internet.

Please feel free if you want to query any of the information we provide. We are always willing to correct any mistakes if we made any for some reason, or explain further how we get to any of the details we provide on here.

Please be aware that neither the information on Wikipedia nor the mini biography and the trivia on IMDb comes from official sources connected with Alex. It was compiled by users and contain loads of inaccurate information. Both those sites have disclaimers about this fact that they are collaborative editing services and that their information might not be accurate.


But let us continue sharing the other social media posts of the past week.

Remembering the 240 episodes of Hawaii Five-0 by sharing a picture from each episode together with some thoughts shared by Alex and others at the time and over the years ……

“It is astonishing. This is my 4th ‘Sunset on the Beach’ and I never ever feel ….. I am always surprised. I am always surprised. I can’t believe the turnout. I can’t believe the constant commitment – I’m just so grateful man. This is my job, it’s what I know. This show is just what I do every day, you know in between living my life. But I do it with all of my heart. And these people come here with all of their hearts. So, I don’t think they will ever understand what it means to me. It means the greatest deal ever.”Alex O’Loughlin, Sunset On The Beach 2013

“And we get to keep money in the local economy. And we get to feed young Hawaiian families. And we get to pay young Hawaiian mortgages. And we get to send young Hawaiian people to good schools, because their parents are working, right? That’s the most important thing about the show.” Alex O’Loughlin, Star-Advertiser interview at Sunset on the Beach, 26 September 2013.

“And I said it in the press line here tonight, that all of you people that come here every year to support us, the show and the Hawaiian economy – especially those of you from other sides of the world. You are all representatives of the giant fanbase, that is the fanbase of Hawaii Five-0.

So thank you all very much. I hope you enjoy the show. See you next year.” – Alex O’Loughlin, Speech at Sunset on the Beach, 26 September 2013

“Listen, with a TV show. I mean success in Television is people coming and turning on their television and watching. That’s what success is. It doesn’t matter what happens on set. Doesn’t matter what the papers and tabloids say. It’s people tuning in and watching. And what we do every year. The turnout we get.

Like, I don’t know what we’re doing right? But we love our jobs. We get to employ like hundreds of people locally. And feed families and help pay mortgages and all the rest of it. And people watch us as well. Every single day that goes by, especially these days, I’m indebted to the universe, man.” – Alex O’Loughlin, on the red carpet at Sunset On The Beach, 26 September 2013

“I’ve never played one character for this long. And it’s network TV, too, so it comes with its own set of challenges from the artist’s perspective. But I’m very lucky. My kids will get to go to good schools, we all eat organic food, and I live in Hawaii.” – Alex O’Loughlin, Associated Press interview at AIF Awards, 25 October 2013

“Let me tell you, if Alex O’Loughlin ever offers you a ride somewhere, RUN. Run in the opposite direction, because Six FlagsDisneylandMagic Mountain, got nothing on this brother. And he always hits his mark, but not before you feel your heart palpitating and you think you’re gonna have a major heart attack.”Chi McBride, Hawaii Five-0 Episode 4:08 DVD commentary.

  • One of my favourite DVD extra features was the commentary for Episode 4:08, done by Alex and Chi McBride. You can read the full transcript here. On there you will also find the answer that Alex gave Chi on the statement he made about his driving. 🙂

Carol Burnett, that was, oh man I mean. It was kind of like a dream for me. She’s a generation ahead I didn’t grow up with her show, but of course I’ve seen it. I’ve seen so much of her work over the years. Working with an icon like that is …. It really makes you sort of feel so humble. It brings you back to your own size. I had to do one scene with her, that was an emotional scene for McGarrett, and it’s funny. She’s like, when you have to do a scene that is emotional and heavy, a lot of it’s about the actor you are working with, whether or not you can trust them. I was 100% safe and 100% of the time with her. So I think that scene is going to be good. But she is incredible, man.” – Alex O’Loughlin, TéléStar, January 2014
