240 Days of #AlexOLoughlin as #H50 Steve McGarrett (Part 14)

We continue sharing the social media posts of the past weeks.

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 ……

Unfortunately, there were not many interviews and articles during this time period on Hawaii Five-0. Therefore many of the quotes we used this time around, date from a few years before then.

“His drive, passion and hard work have turned him into one of our hottest acting exports of all time, starring in the hit crime fighting television series Hawaii Five-0.  He describes himself as ‘not massively talented‘, but that is rubbish.”– Jack Thompson talking about Alex O’Loughlin when he handed him the GQ Australia Actor of the Year Award on 22 November 2011

Question: Where can we find Alex O’Loughlin eating in Hawaii?

Alex: I got to tell you, man. My wife is the baddest (awesome) cook on the Island. She is so …. she makes the most the most beautiful braais…. I’m at home a lot eating like …. she …. every day I come home, and there’s beautiful food for me at home. So that’s the first step, right.  Alex O’Loughlin, SOTB 2014 (Young Hawaii Interview)

“Many know this guy as Steve McGarret on Hawaii 5.0.. After selling him 4 trucks over the years I can say that he’s the humblest and most down to earth person considering. #Hawaii50” –  Obren V, 16 June 2015.

“My body’s pretty broken up. I got through most of them — the last surgery I had on my elbow I came to work the next day at 5:30 a.m., I just had them bandage my elbow.”Alex O’Loughlin, ET, 3 November 2016

Picture from #HawaiiFive0 Episode 5:13 – Broadcast on 30 Jan. 2015

  • While studying pictures of this specific episode we actually saw that Alex’s elbow was bandaged with a flesh-coloured bandage even before the scene was filmed where he got in an accident and got injured as Steve.

  • We, therefore, presume that this was the time that he filmed after having surgery the day before as he mentioned in an interview a few years later. The surgery scar could also be seen in some of the later footage in the next episode. We mentioned it in a post. H50 5.14 – Alex got some new scars, but we did not know at the time that it was actually a scar from an operation in the days during filming only a few days before.

“Alex is so warm and genuine and such a wonderfully talented actor. He’s got such great charisma and is so unassuming in his crazy good looks that he just endears himself to you.” — Nina Tassler, President, CBS Entertainment, LA Times, October 2007

“I love him. He’s awesome. He’s such a gentleman. He just breaks my heart in how sweet he is. He’s so sweet, but such a leading man in this way that isn’t cocky, but strong. He’s strong, because he needs to be strong, and he needs caring to show, and he’s very ambitious and wants a really long career. All of the qualities that need to be attached for somebody to be really successful are all there, but without that sort of sketchy quality that can sometimes be in people that really want to get to the top. He has zero of that. I see how he treats everybody on set. He’s really compassionate. Really loving.” – Shannyn Sossamon talking about Alex, his co-star on “Moonlight” in an interview with IGN, September 2007

  3. Jack Thompson was oh so right. Rubbish, Alex. Totally rubbish.
    Just look at pic #3! That’s what I mean with Alexpressions. This is the badass Navy SEAL, the survivor, the goofy one and at the same time vulnerable boy. Portrayed all in one. You can’t do that if you are not capable of giving your character dimensions!

  4. All those awesome comments. It´s pretty obvious that Alex is one of the few people who are loved and respected by litterally everybody he met and/or worked with. That´s absolutelly amazing and talks volumes about him as a human being and professional in the way he carries himself and the work he is doing as well. He would probably not acknowledge that he is special but he is.

  5. Oh, and I remember while watching the wreckingball episode we spotted the b.w. (before wreckingball) bandage and the a.w. (after wreckingball) bandage. And we thought: are we supposed to not see the the b.w. bandage?
