“Without the fans, we are nothing. Without the fans, filmmaking is a redundant industry. We need people to come and see what we do. I love them and cherish them, because without them I would have to go and do something else. I’d be a carpenter or something, because otherwise I wouldn’t have a job. I’m proud of my show, man.” – Alex O’Loughlin, Edmonton Journal, 20 January 2014

TV Plus: What do you look for in a partner?

“There’s a collection of things – a sense of humour’s really important and the ability to not take yourselves too seriously.  Also to be able to talk to the person who I’m with. I’ve had relationships where I can’t really talk to them. I’m in a relationship now where I can talk about anything. The ones I couldn’t talk to drifted away. You spend so much time together, you must have a good time.”Alex O’Loughlin, TV Plus, 30 October 2013

(Of course, they were talking about real-life relationships and not the pretend cop-buddy partnership of Hawaii Five-0)

 I bought a house that I have to renovate and even if I’m not great at this, I don’t listen to my friends that keep on telling me to hire professionals. I like to do everything myself. I love it so much that sometimes I take some stuff apart, just for the pleasure of rebuilding it again. I didn’t play with Lego’s enough when I was younger.

Between a gun and a drill, I’m more at ease with a drill. I prefer the holes that a drill makes, rather than the ones by guns. ” – Alex O’Loughlin, TV 8 Magazine, 7 February 2014

I did my first play when I was eight-, nine-years-old. I loved it then, and I love it now. I’m not really good at anything else.” Alex O’Loughlin, The Edmonton Journal, January 2014

O’Loughlin dispelled suggestions that he’s looking for a way to get out of Hawaii Five-0. He was misquoted in a recent media report, he said:

“I signed a contract for six or seven years, and that’s what I’m committed to. And if we do anything after that, we do something after that. Look, I love this show. This show is my job. This is my show. I like doing more work than anyone else connected to the show. I have from the beginning, and I will to the end. This is my life, and it’s all I have. I don’t have time to go do films. I don’t have the luxury of gaps in my schedule so I can go and do passion projects. I miss that, but I’m fully committed to Hawaii Five-0 and I’m deeply grateful for the opportunity I’ve been given. I get really mad when I’m misquoted. I try to be honest with the press. I don’t give one-word answers, and I like to say what I think. I’ve got a bit of a sense of humour. But when I’m misquoted and painted in a certain way, it makes me not want to do press. I’m ferociously protective of this show, so I would like to meet that journalist again on a carpet.” – Alex O’Loughlin, The Edmonton Journal, January 2014

Peter’s the best. Peter is the one guy that works harder than I do. If it wasn’t for him, we wouldn’t have the show. If it wasn’t for his advocacy and his championing of me, I wouldn’t be a part of this and you wouldn’t be talking to me today. He is the most committed, resourceful, vision-driven guy I think I’ve ever met. He’s the best writer with plot that I’ve ever met. The way he can solve problems on set, creatively in the script, within 30 minutes’ time, and have the pages ready for is incredible.

He’s hands-on. He’s on set regularly, and always available. I will email him at 4 a.m., and he’ll email me back in three minutes. He’s a huge reason we’re still on the air, why the show is the hit that it is, and why all the fans around the world get to have a show every week. I really think that with a different showrunner, it may have been a different story. We may not have stayed on the air.” – Alex O’Loughlin, Edmonton Journal, 20 January 2014

“I´m very excited to be here. I’m very excited to be going to Season 5. I mean, it’s really hard to have … get a hit TVshow… It’s hard to get a show on the air. It’s even harder to make it a hit.

 I don’t know what the recipe is, but we’re just going to do what we did every year and work really hard together … and you know … I’m nervous, we are doing 25 episodes this year. That’s a lot of TV. We’ve never done that many before. We do 22 or 24. And the years we did 24, we were all like (face of exhaustion). We are going to do 25 this year so … “ – Alex O’Loughlin, HNN, Season 5 Blessing Ceremony – 8 July 2014

Food for thought I saw on social media this week …

Some people create their own storms and then they get mad when it rains!
