This is social media me. Having some fun as an Alex O'Loughlin fangirl, together with my partner in crime, Neropatti Paula.

#AlexOLoughlin and The Phantom

Great to get a new good quality picture of Alex from the #H50 set. It is always nice when other people from the performing arts visit the set and share their experience with the fans.

The Phantom of Phantom of the Opera on Tour, Derrick Davis, visited the set of Hawaii Five-0. On his IG story it was clear that he was very exited to meet Alex in particular.

An incredible day spent on the set of #hawaii50
What a pleasure to meet and chat with #alexoloughlin and the entire crew! Thanks for coming to @phantomtour to check us out…your direction and acting today was inspiring

#AlexOLoughlin with some new faces on #H50

Hawaii Five-0 ended with a cliffhanger at the end of Season 9, but in about 5 weeks time we will all see what happened with Steve McGarrett and his Ohana when Season 10 starts on 27 September in the USA. For those of you not following social media, there will be many surprises, but I guess there are not a lot of you who don’t follow the show elsewhere. If you do not want to be spoiled with some of the things we picked up from the footage from the set, I suggest that you do not continue reading.

  • First of all we know that Alex and his character Steve McGarrett is back and it looks like he will be back in full force without physical injury. His character looks in good health on set (and after the first episode filmed, he was also without the beard).

Not only will Alex be back, but as we reported a while back, he also wrote and directed the episode that was filmed first for the season. It will however not be the first episode broadcast. My guess is that it will be broadcast close to Halloween. And we also got the pictures from Christine Lahti who will be in that episode. That even more so would suggest that it will be a great episode.

  • We also know from the Blessing ceremony, that some of the  Ex Navy SEAL’s from Trident Adventures will again be seen. This time in the episode directed by Alex.

They posted this older picture from Season 8 Epi 24, where they also featured:

Trident Adventures ( 3 August )

“Sometimes we get a little jealous of the jobs our SEAL guys have 😏 Try and spot our two veterans on the new season of H50″

  • There is official notification from CBS of the  addition of actress Katrina Law to the permanent cast as season regular. She will play a former Army  Staff Sergeant named Quinn Liu.

From Jim Halterman on 14

The island of Hawaii just got a bit more interesting.

CBS announced Wednesday that Katrina Law (The Oath, Arrow) will step into a series regular role on the network’s long-running crime drama, Hawaii Five-0, when the series returns for Season 10 in September.

Law will play a former Staff Sergeant with Army CID named Quinn Liu, who was recently demoted for insubordination. Liu is described as sharp-tongued in several languages and she has a deep knowledge of military culture, which will make her the perfect person to match wits with Five-0 Commander, Steve McGarrett (Alex O’Loughlin).

Liu comes into the show after an explosive collision with Five-0 on a case involving veterans. She will soon become a local ally for the team, which also values integrity over sticking to the rules.

“We are thrilled to have Katrina join the 10th season Hawaii Five-0 as a series regular,” says Executive Producer Peter Lenkov. “She dazzles as Quinn, the team’s newest recruit, and viewers are going to love seeing how she first encounters McGarrett and Danny. If you know the show well, you’ll be feeling some déjà vu.”

(Unfortunately we can not share any pictures of Alex with Katrina  from the set. They were all posted by the person who took them, and he blocked us from his IG and Twitter pages and we can therefor not post them with full credit of original source. )

  • Actor Rob Morrow posted this picture and he also indicated that he will be in more than one episode of Hawaii Five-0. Loved him since the Northern Exposure days and hope he will have a great character to play.

@hawaii50cbs hey, were ur ears burning @therealclaireforlani #waikiki #hawaii

Of course Claire featured as Alicia Brown in a number of H50 episodes. She and Rob, in their younger days, starred in a 1998 movie together. It seems as if they remained good friend all this time.

  • Claire answered back with a tweet: “Damn you two look cute together! Adore you both so much”


  • Actress Katie Wee posted a picture on Instagram a while back already, but she deleted the post. We can only guess that she did it because when it was shared by others, there might have been some indications that she could be a new love interest for Steve. 

She wrote:

“To say shooting Hawaii 5-0 was fun would be a huge understatement. It was a total gift 🎁 I got to be in Hawaii, (!!!) work with the loveliest people, and ultimately do the thing I have wanted to do since I was a little kid- act on TV 🤩trying to soak in how truly grateful I am, because that gratitude is what helps me remember what it’s all for in the moments between wins. Can’t wait for you all to meet me on #H50 s 10 #AlexOloughlin


Some dates that might be of interest to you:

  • This Saturday, 24 August is Alex’s  Birthday.
  • It has been announced that Sunset On the Beach will be on Thursday, 19 September
  • And a week later on Friday 27 September, Season 10 will kick of on a new and earlier time slot on CBS at 20h00


8-9 p.m. Hawaii Five-0
9-10 p.m. Magnum P.I.
10-11 p.m. Blue Bloods

As usual  a big Thank You to everybody who posted pictures and shared information on their pages, for all to see. It is good to see when the Aloha spirit from most people in the fandom.

2556 Days of #AlexOLoughlin Fun … We are Seven

Thank You, to all of you for being here during the 7 years to share our fun with Alex!!

Real life might not have always been fun for the past 7 years, but here we could always create some fun with fellow fans and followers of Alex. Thank You to those of you who come here and participate with us on a regular basis.

And most of all, Thank You to Alex for being a person and actor worth following. He is not a saint nor a god, but very human and with lots of real Aloha. Sharing him with other is our hobby and it is always great to see the goodness, respect, honour and fun that surrounds him as a person.

Of course special events create nostalgia and I went to look back at our old anniversary posts from the past years. There are a lot of stuff to remember, but what caught my eye when I read through all of them, is that I still feel the same about the things I had to say on them at that time.

You can click on the link to our first year celebration here:

365 days of fun – we are ONE !

But be careful, it is a rabbit hole of memories of that first 365 day. There are links in it of some of the fun we had that year. If you are new here and have not read much of the older stuff, it can be a revelation to see, and I highly recommend it. But be warned, set enough time apart to follow all the links.

You can click on the link to our second year celebration here:

730 days of fun …… We are TWO!

Thankfully this post was shorter, but full of thankfulness towards those we met here.

You can click on the link to our third year celebration here:

1095 Days of #AlexOLoughlin fun – We are Three

Reading that post, I once again felt very proud of what we have done here on our place of Alex heaven.

You can click on the link to our fourth year celebration here:

1461 Days of #AlexOLoughlin Fun – We Are FOUR

This post was short and sweet and mainly contain the links to the previous years, much like this one. When I realized what year it was and the time of my life it was in, I knew why it was so short and sweet. But it also made me remember how being here helped me through some tough times!

You can click on the link to our fifth year celebration here:

1826 days of #AlexOLoughlin fun – we are FIVE!

This post was once again full of links not only to the old anniversary posts, but also to a few of the fun posts and things that made me proud of what we were able to do up until that time. Many of those links are worth the while to look back to.

Then last year’s post to celebrate our sixth year at 2191 days was empty. 😦 😥

Not only that, but July 2018 was also the first and only month we that we did not make any posts for, for the whole month since the day we started the blog. And the months around it we also hardly posted anything.

It was not because we were no longer interested in Alex, but unfortunately real life happened and kept us from being in a frame of mind to post things here. We were always around, still more or less knowing what was going on around Alex and happening to the fans, but we did not engage.But of course during this time Paula kept our Facebook and Instagram and Twitter alive with beautiful pictures of Alex.

Thank you to those we kept in contact during those difficult days!

 And now we are back to today

Today I am not only thankful and proud, but also grateful. And not only grateful about sharing some Alex fun with others who are virtually strangers to us, but also grateful to life and friends and family to love.

Here is to life!


Once again


 TO US!!


Many more good fangirl years to come!




Lots of love

– Paula & FOYeur

They say ….. #AlexOLoughlin passed the sniff test!

Not many of us will ever have the pleasure of meeting Alex, much less being hugged and held by him. And even fewer will ever have the opportunity to sniff or lick him or have a picture taken with him.

In October last year at the age of only 3 months, Mondo the pup got his chance. Now that is what I call the opposite of “a dogs life”. #luckypup #jealousfangirl


mondojrt  They filmed Hawaii Five-0 at my house and I met this very nice man on the way out for a potty break. I didn’t know who he was but I gave him the sniff test and he passed! Now I’m a fan. #jackrusselterrier #jackrussell #jrt #jackrussellpuppy #jackrussellsofig #jackrussellsofinstagram #jackrussellsinstagram #jackrussellstyle #jackrussellmoments #dogstagram #dogsofinstagram #instadog #puppy #puppylove #alexoloughlin #mcgarrett #h50 #hawaii50 #hawaiifive0

Thanks to Mondo’s mommie who posted these pictures back then.
PS. Mondo’s real name is Armando, and according to his mommie it means “Army Man” in Italian. Sounds like a Steve McGarret’s kind of dog to me 🙂 I guess they were destined to meet. Even their camouflage wardrobe can match!

#AlexOLoughlin – Today, 10 Years Ago

Not all of us can recall exactly where we were today 10 years ago, but it is kind of easy for Alex this time. Of course he was on the set of The Back-Up Plan with Jennifer Lopez, celebrating her 4oth birthday with the cast and crew. They filmed the movie during the months of April to July 2009 and spesifically shots some scenes the day before her birthday untill midnight, when they all congratulated and celebrated with her.

Today on 24 July, Jennifer turns 50 and we thought it might be good to recap with some pretty pictures and links to our old posts, some of the quotes and news and stories of Alex, from his time on the film with Jennifer, a decade ago ……

“Some actors are good on TV and get lost in a movie. Alex can do both. And especially on the big screen, you want somebody who can hold your attention, and Alex proved he is one of those people who can do just that.”

Jennifer Lopez

Times Colonist (April 2010)

  • Link to a video with the transcript of an interview with Alex on set in 2009.

Alex O’Loughlin about Stan and the Back-Up Plan – 2009

  • A link to one of the interviews with Alex during their promotion of The Back-Up Plan:

Alex interview with Cinema Magazine – March 2010


“Alex is a movie star. Working with him has been amazing, given that he’s never done flat-out comedy before. He’s a classically trained actor from the Australian stage, so it was a learning process for him to find the comedy rhythms without sacrificing any emotional integrity. He’s an incredible talent. Alex and Jennifer also have such fantastic chemistry. They dig each other both as characters and as people.”

– Alan Poul (Director of The Back-Up Plan)

FlimInk (September 2009)

  • Alex about working with Jennifer:

And we both realized that we were to the other, someone who we could work with. I knew I could work with her closely because I kind of ‘got her’. She was funny! That’s a big thing. If she was someone who really took herself seriously and didn’t know how to laugh, I think I would have been like, ‘Weeeellll, I don’t know, it’s going to be a challenge to get to those important scenes,’ you know?”

– Alex O’Loughlin.

on Beyond Beautiful JLO, (April 2010)

  • Alex talking about the time on set:

“It’s the best, really. A film set is like an adult’s playground and we spend so much time on them … I work and live on them. To be on a film set where there’s a family vibe, and a family feel is kind of unusual and very refreshing. It was great to have [Jennifer’s] kids there so much and Marc there when he could be there, when he wasn’t working. [Also] to have my son there, and my best friend would [visit], and her best friend was there, and her family. It was just awesome. It was the best time.”

– Alex O’Loughlin (April 2010)

  • Link to an article by Jenny Cooney at the time of the release of the film:

Baby, I Love Your Way – May 2010

  • Link to another article where Alex not only give thoughts about The Back Up Plan, but also about his TV shows, Moonlight, Three Rivers and Hawaii Five-0.

  • In May 2009, Alex also supported Jennifer by attending the Noche de Niños Gala at the Beverly Hilton. It is an annual celebration and concert benefiting the Children’s Hospital Los Angeles.

  • Alex was one of the guests at Jennifer Lopez’s 40th birthday bash on 27 July 2009. An Evening with Lola’ was a surprise birthday party for Jennifer, organized for her by her then husband Marc Anthony.

  •  Video taken at midnight on the set of The Back-Up Plan:


Jennifer: Alex, make a toast!” 

Alex: “Okay, here we go.”

Jennifer: “Alex is going to make a toast.”

Alex: “Here we go. To Jennifer, Happy Birthday. Welcome back, baby! [Cheers all around] …… To Jennifer!”


  • This photo was taken while the little video was filmed:

There are so many photos and articles and interviews from that time that we have shared over the years, and this post is just a small fraction of it all.

Hope you enjoyed the trip down memory lane!


Happy Birthday Jennifer!!

It would be interesting to see where we will all be 10 years from now ……….
