“Hawaii is the first and the most important character in this show. And we love it and we really appreciate it, but without you guys we can’t do it. So, thank you to the people of Hawaii. Thank you very much. Mahalo.” – Alex O’Loughlin, SOTB Sept 2014

YH: What kind of advice can you give actors coming up in the game?

Alex: Don’t give up. Don’t give up. Do it for the right reasons. Stay away from fame. And don’t give up. That’s not going to make sense right now, but it will one day. – Alex O’Loughlin, SOTB 2014 (Young Hawaii Interview)

“There have been some shifts with the team. There’s been some new additions. There’s some characters we’ve had to say goodbye to but the core team is still there. McGarrett still battles with the loss of his mother (and) we’re going to be exploring some new stuff about his father and that loss.” – Alex O’Loughlin, Honolulu pulse, Sept 2014

Entertainment Tonight Interview on 7 November 2014:

Brooke: I know that you love to do your own stunts. But you’ve hurt yourself. Do you still insist on jumping out of thing and running into things?

Alex: No, no, not at all. I actually would like to work in a library. When I hear gunfire, I like twitch. I think I have a little bit of PTSD.

“Once I finish an episode, I put it out of my mind so that I can move on and retain new information, but the 100th episode [where McGarrett got waterboarded] was really hard. We had a medic standing by, and I set it up so I actually let them waterboard me and I thought it would be interesting, but I got really sick with pneumonia after that. I had to kind of “go there” with some of the emotional stuff about my dad, so I tried to sink my teeth into that one. Yeah, I really felt depleted after that one.” – Alex O’Loughlin, TV Line, November 2016

 “I love it. The crew is sensational. They’re absolutely terrific. And I love Alex very much. I feel like his Aunt Deb.

There’s a true Aloha Spirit here. I used to live in Hawaii for a long time. The Islands are very healing.” —   Carol Burnett, Set interview 2015
