“The majority of my important memories are now Hawaiian. You’ve just got to look around… watch the waves in winter here. There’s something bigger than me in the world… that source or whatever that is had something to do with this whole journey, because now it all makes sense.” — Alex O’Loughlin, CBS Watch Magazine, 2017

“Being a husband and a dad are the two most important things in my life, you know. And nothing else matters, beyond that. I don’t enjoy anything else more than I enjoy those two things.”  – Alex O’Loughlin, CBS Watch Magazine, 2017

“Eight years ago we started on this journey, and this journey required military assistance from many different divisions. And when we reached out a hand and asked for assistance from the US military, we got so many hands back.” – Alex O’Loughlin, Speech at SOTB, Nov 2017

“One of the biggest hurdle for me saying yes to the role, was that I would be representing a community of very special people within the US Navy. And I think I would be able to do it. And the only reason I have been able to kind of pull it off, is because of the support that I’ve had from select individuals. A number of them are in the crowd tonight. And you know who you are, gentleman. The US Navy SEALs  – I’ve never had a group of people make me feel more a part of, more equal and more welcome than that community. So, first of all, I would like to say,  a sincere and humble thank you so much to the entire community.”  – Alex O’Loughlin, Speech at SOTB, Nov 2017

“I would just like to take a minute to say to every servicemen and women in this country, whether currently active, deployed or otherwise, whether heading into a retirement or well settled into retirement or whether the memory of the souls that we no longer have – Thank you so much for providing all of us, including guests and ex-patriots like me, from Australia and other countries, the freedom that we have every day, the civil liberties that we try not to take for granted and the peace that we have every night when we lay our children down and close our own eyes. So for all you service people out there, from the bottom of our hearts on Hawaii Five-0 – Thank you for your service.” – Alex O’Loughlin, Speech at SOTB, Nov 2017

    Thank you, Foyeur, for the gorgeous photos and comments from
    Alex. I miss him so much!

    • Thank you for the thank you.
      It helps to know that there is still some interest in Alex. I think a lot of fans are giving up ……


      • No way! You are probably right with fans slowly giving up but I think, only because one does not post doesn´t mean you are giving up.
        About the quotes: I remember Alex´s speech that he gave at “Sunset On The Beach”. It´s awesome and it feels like his words came straight from his heart. It´s certainly not easy to find the right words, esp. when you are not American. But those words were full of respect and appreciation. I rewatched the video and went kind of nostalgic. Fond memories…. .

        • It´s kind of irony but as long as those scammers do find fans who fall for them and we know, they have a “good harvest” because there are loads of gullible fans eager to talk to “Alex” there still is a large fandom.

          Disclaimer: Alex O`Loughlin is NOT doing social media and is not trying to talk to fans online. …… Just in case. 😀

        I agree with antjekreutz. Loyal fans are NOT losing interest in Alex. You’ll see the avalanche of posts you’ll get the moment you announce anything new! Don’t lose heart, FOYeur!

        I’m sometimes on the verge of giving up, myself. The only thing that keeps me hopeful is that Alex is way too young for retirement. He must have SOMETHING in mind to fill his days. I hope that something will be acting.
        I’m sure when Alex is out and about, people tell him how much he is missed.

  2. Day174’s picture shows why one says that eyes are the window to one’s soul. But very few actors are capable of conveying this. “The play is not in the words. It’s in you.” (Stella Adler)
    As an actor it is not about being emotional. It’s about expressing emotions. You don’t need words for it.
    All your posts, the pics, the quotes show what an impressive man and actor Alex is. And how damn long and exhausting being no. one on the call sheet for 10 seasons must be.
    We can’t give you ladies enough credit for the work you put in this. Finding the right pics going along with the most fitting posts showing who Alex is and how much he is appreciated.

    I love the respect shown by Alex to the Navy Seal community. I have no relatives nor friends in the military community myself and am not particular partial to the military stuff, but when it comes to fighting for a good cause, I must say that I admire and respect all servicemen and women, and I am grateful for what they do for us. So, Alex’s words touch me. And yes, I have the war in Ukraine in mind as I write these lines.

    Congratulations on the excellent work.
    We will continue to read your daily publications with enthusiasm. And let’s wait for news from our Alex news. One of these days they will come.

    • Thank you.
      Hopefully news will come before we get to the end of the 240 days …. 🙂


      • Cassiopea 1000

        Then you’d better consider one day per post, just to be on the safe side 😂!


        • Not sure what you mean? 😕
          We do a post a day and there are 59 days left of the 240 days.

            I meant one pic and comment a day instead of six or seven. Then Alex will get more than 59 days to make an appearance!


            • 240 episodes make 240 days make 240 pic(k)s*. One pic each day posted on instagram. No chance to prolong it. Sorry, it’s on Alex. 😉
              *sorry, FOYeur and Paula, had to reuse it. 😜

                Aaaarghhh! So, even if I stretch arithmetic to impossible limits, there is no way to prolong the posts? What happens when we reach the fateful 240th day? Nothing more? We start a contest for “Alex’s Loudest Wailer”?

                Does Alex know how much we miss him? Is he so humble that he doesn’t think that now that he’s not on screen, his fandom has lost interest and it would be arrogant of him to give news? Have his agents developed a subtle strategy of total silence so we are mesmerized when he appears at last in an amazing movie? Is his silence an easy way to tell us that it was good to have a loyal fandom when he needed it, but that now we are of no use, and shall we please start to face facts, he’s not coming back?

                Really, this imagination of mine can be nasty at times!
