Transcript: BTS of #H50 Season 6 with funny man #AlexOLoughlin

Just another old video that we needed to do a transcript for. 

Alex is so cute and funny in it.


Alex: Oh, Hi … Hi

Hey, Hey, Hey.

Sorry, I was sleeping.

How’s it going guys?

We’re going to have a little walk around. We are wrapping up Season 6.

I think … what are we at? Hundred and Forty Seven (147)* now? It’s pretty crazy.

(*It was actually episode 143)

This is Episode 25 of Season 6 and I thought we could go and say ‘Hello’ to a couple of people who make it happen.

So let’s go. Come on in here. 

Jeff is our key in make-up. And he is the guy, who almost from the beginning, has made the show look as incredible as it does. And as believable as it does.

[Short clip from make-up of Episode 6:01]

Jeff: You are ready for your close-up sir.

Alex: Yeah, Jeff. Why don’t you say ‘Hi’. And be … be friendly.

s6 set tour 3

Jeff: Hello audience. Thank you for looking into our world. This is the make-up and hair trailer. I’m the make-up department head on the show. And I’ve been here pretty much since day one. When it comes to  … [Grace Park fixes his hair by adding a clip in it]

Thank you. You’re fixing it? Does this look better? 

Alex: That was Grace Park, just destroying the shot.

Jeff: Anyways. Yeah, I’ve been here since day one, pretty much, with Alex O’Loughlin here, making him look this handsome. He comes in here looking quite trollish, in the morning. And we make him taller and we make him fitter. And we make him more handsome. He’s bald – completely. And he’s about 60 years old.

Alex: Enough Jeff. Thank you so much for your time.

Jeff: [Laughing] Bye

[Alex moving over to the hair stylists]

Alex: This is one of my wigs. [Lots of laughs]

It’s my take home wig. I come in here wearing this. Then they take that off and then they put this wig on. [Pointing at his real hair]

This is Tena ..

Tena: Hi.

Alex:  ….. Parker who is the head of our hair department. And Joanne works very closely with her.

Joanne looks after Danno.

They are really good friends as well as co-workers. So this is a very important place for us delicate actors.

Okay, let’s go.

[Alex moving on to the next location with set PA]

Alex: This is Phoebe. Some people call her Phebe. 

Phoebe: Phebe.

Alex: Thank you Phoebe. 

[At the door to the main stage]

So this is the main stage.

 [Whispering] It’s the back way.

[Enters the main stage set]

So this is our very hardworking and dedicated crew. These guys are the first to arrive and the last to leave every day. And if it wasn’t for these guys, on every shoot … television for film shoot, we wouldn’t have any TV or film to watch.

s6 set tour 7

This is Michael Neumann one of our two first AD’s [First Assistant Director]. This guy runs this show and makes sure everything happens the way it is supposed to happen.

[Clip of some filming]


He does half the amount of episodes I do. So he works half as hard as I do.

[Alex jokingly pushing Michael away to welcome Brian Spicer]


This is Brian Spicer. Brian is directing this episode. What do you direct? Like 6 a year? 

Brian: Five (5).

Alex: Five a year.

[Clip of Brian busy directing Episode 6:01]

Brian is not only one of our talented directors, he is also  the producing director (co-executive producer) of the entire show.

So Brian makes sure when other directors don’t ….

Brian: ….. they don’t look you in the eye.

Alex: They don’t … they can’t. That’s in my contract now. So, that’s all fixed up.

Brian: Yeah.

[Jokingly looking at his small shirt]

I don’t know about these youth shirts. This is like a youth medium. 

Brian: They said you wanted smaller shirts, to make everything else bigger.

Alex: I don’t have to work out anymore. I just put on these smaller shirts.

[In a different location to Ronald Wright (Boom Operator) ]

Alex: You’re the boom guy, among other things. And you also set up all our body mics.

Ronald: Yes. all the body mics

Alex: And I do very, very, very little voice over stuff with this team of sound guys. The least I’ve ever done in any job.

So can you tell the guys about that a little bit.

Ronald: Well, the body mics are to protect all the dialogue of what has been said. And then whatever we can’t get on the body mics, we try to put a boom over the top outside the camera frames. So we can capture all the dialogue. Even all the effects that are even being done by our actors. 

Alex: The other thing is to know about Ron. His clearly …. he’s a big beautiful specimen of a man. And he’s like best hugger on set. So if I’m having a bad day we just go in for one of these. Are you ready.

Ronald: Yeah, I’m ready.

Alex: Here we go. Oh …. [Beep]

It’s amazing.

Ron, enough … that’s enough.

[Moving on to other members of the crew (Brian Wallace & Moku Ribuca ]

Alex: Guys can you talk a little bit about what you guys as grips do on a film set.

s6 set tour 8

Moku: What we basically do, is make Alex look good.

Yeah, we defuse light and  spread it out. Shape it, to make it look perfect. As actors always look perfect, it’s because of us. 

Alex: Which is actually true. Actors don’t always look perfect, but when they do, it’s because of these guys. 

[Looking at a suitcase full of guns with Jennings Fowler]

Alex: I see you have a suitcase full of guns.

Jennings: We do.

Alex: Are they real guns?

Jennings: They are real. These are real guns. We just don’t use any real bullets, because that would be very dangerous. We do use blanks very often because as you know we shoot a lot of guns in this television show.

Alex: Right.

Jennings: But, they are real guns. They just have plugs in them. There’s no bullets in this clip here. Where I show other people.

There’s no bullet’s in the chambers, see. You see?

Alex: Yeah. Let me hear it? Looks good.

Jennings: Right.

Say … Can you say goodbye to people?

Jennings: Goodbye people.

s6 set tour 11

Alex to Perry Daniel (Prop Assistant): Can you say goodbye to the people?

Perry: Goodbye people.

Alex: Bye.

And Perry, I’m sorry we didn’t get more time with you.

Perry: I don’t know anything, but he’s the gun guy.

Alex: Perry knows quite a lot ….

Perry: I know about license plates, okay.

Jennings: Yeah.

Alex: Which I think we all agree, are less interesting.


s6 set tour 9

Alex: Okay guys. So I … I’m clearly not very good at this.

But I’ve had a really good time taking you guys around the set today. And introducing you to a few of the …. There are so many more people I wish you could meet, because it takes a village to … to do something like this. To make a show like this.

But we really appreciate all these guys that tune in every week. And we love you. And hopefully many more years to come.

#AlexOLoughlin – Out and About in Hawaii

At long last somebody in Hawaii posted a new picture of them with Alex while he was visiting the beach with his wife and kids in Hawaii.

Thank you so much ‘Iolani Adams for posting this picture of his daughter and Dan with Alex, yesterday.



Just another day at Kewalos with Alex O’Loughlin who plays as Lieutenant Commander Steven “Steve” McGarrett, who was the star of CBS’s long-running reboot series HAWAII FIVE-O.
Mahalo nui braddah Alex for da Aloha!

Book em Danno!
What’s funny is that…the boy on the left…his name is Dan.

From IG Story:Oh Yeah – This Guy (Alex O’Loughlin) and Malia Jones was at Kewalos, taking their kids surfing.

For those we wonder – this is a picture of Alex with the fans who posted it. It is not his family.

Somehow it is not clear to everybody who read the post, but the fans did say that Alex was there with his family.

3285 Days of #AlexOLoughlin Fun …. We are 9

Nine years since we published our first post on this site and just more than ten years of following Alex’s career.


… to us!

This image has an empty alt attribute; its file name is press-bw-happy-dl-n.jpg

It has been a roller coaster ride indeed. 

This is post number 2382 on the blog and lots of hours behind creating each one of them. Not to mention all the Instagram, Facebook and Twitter posts over the years. And then reading and answering comments on all of them.

Lots of time and energy spent here!

All worth it.

This image has an empty alt attribute; its file name is 911-profile-bw-dl.jpg

I thought a lot about what to say – trying to find something memorable. Even read through my old anniversary posts for some inspiration and guidance. In the end I realised that in them you can find most of what can be said and nothing really more memorable to add.  It is just all about Alex and fellowship with those who want to enjoy him with us.

I thought about writing about the pandemic and how it affected all of us. Even thought about sharing some of the pain and hardships we experienced during these past 9 years. But realised that would achieve nothing to try and add real life in here.

I even pondered about writing some harsh words for those who over the years took away the fun from us in many different ways. But in the end decided that they are not worth the time and energy to be mentioned here.  They just create noise that drain joy from us and others and therefor deserve no mention.

Our focus and joy remains with Alex and his work!

This image has an empty alt attribute; its file name is 202-face-pretty.jpg


It is all about who he is and what he offers us with his work and conduct – that is what is important.

Our passion will always be to bring you the best and the most accurate information about Alex that we can find.

We like to keep it real as far as possible, with the main focus on reporting on Alex’s actual work and other passions, enhanced with pictures of that work and other footage we can find.

This image has an empty alt attribute; its file name is watch-bw-dl-4-b.jpg

It is definitely not easy to stay patient during this time of waiting. Waiting to see what Alex  will do next. But there is no use for any of us to fret about it. It is what it is.

I prefer to enjoy that which we have here and enhance and update it with that which we haven’t published yet.

And together with it, enjoy the company of others who enjoy him.


Stay safe! 

Lots of Love


Paula and FOYeur

#AlexOLoughlin & Carol Burnett – On the set of #H50 – 2015

Pictures and a video clip of Alex and Carol Burnett on the set of Hawaii Five-0, Episode 6:12 – With some wonderful words of love and respect for one another.


Carol: Well, 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. And so, the Islands are very healing.

Alex: Well, you know at first it’s a little overwhelming, because she’s Carol Burnett, you know. And it’s like, “Oh my goodness. How ….?” You know, and ….. very quickly…. specially with someone like Carol, she’s so grounded and humble and amazing, you know.

And very, very quickly you are put at ease as an actor and as a person.
