#AlexOLoughlin of #H50 is NOT on Social Media

I know it should not bother me so much, but this past week I have had a few instances where I got somewhat pissed off about social media pages that are perceived to be Alex.

There is a lot of ignorance out there and many fans do not understand the concept that a celebrity will have a verified account. An account with the correct verified mark next to it.

We ourselves get some DM messages from fans because they think we are Alex – I do not know why? We are not verified, we clearly state we have a fan page, and we never do posts as if we are him. And we always immediately correct them with online comments and in private dm’s.

If it is not verified, it is not real or official. No matter what is said in the title of that page. No matter that others might tag that account – it is not REAL without proper verification.

There is a ‘fan’ account on Instagram, who has been perceived as a REAL Alex account for a long time already, because it has been tagged and the title says official. And with seemingly personal posts like this:

_officialalexoloughlin_  “A part where I appear in the Meaghan Rath clip”

The account has 80 000 followers, purely because some ignorant people believe it is Alex’s account. And that page grows with a 1000 new followers every day ….. But the account belongs to a 14-year-old Spanish speaking girl. At the end of her bio, she says she is not Alex, but users rarely bother to read these bios.

She even posts in Spanish, but ignorant people are still fooled, and from their comments, it is clear that they now think Alex uses Spanish as well to communicate with fans. 😕

During this week, that account posted that her father is in isolation because of COVID19 – and many of the 80 000 ignorant followers now believe it is Alex’s dad who is sick. To me, that is a sick situation! And it pissed me off …

You can see the post and comments here: 

And judge for yourself.

Many fans on that post, wish Alex and his father well. They use his name in the comments, because they are clearly still fooled by the account. And the account holder only “likes” those comments, without even trying to correct the wrong perception of those fans!! For me, that is just wrong!

And in my opinion, too many fans who should know better are supporting that account with likes and comments on it …..

And with it, YOU support the deceit!!

From March 2008 to May 2010 Alex used to have a MySpace account, where he communicated with fans. And in 2011 his Publicist started a Verified Facebook page for him.

He used it on occasion with a few posts about organ donation, but for the past few years, there has been no personal messages or official communication from Alex there.

And a few weeks back, some deranged person was allowed to repeatedly comment all kinds of nonsense on the community page there for many days, without being stopped by Alex’s people who should look after the page.

Just to confirm our point about Alex NOT being on Social Media, here are the times when Alex spoke about it:

12:31 [Comment From Lori] I know you are on MySpace. Are you on Twitter or Facebook at all?

12:32 Alex O’Loughlin: Lori – No. CBS has begged for both but I’m thinking about creating my own … it’s going to be called TWITFACE

Teri: “Donna Hall wants to know: will you please Twitter! Why haven’t you joined a social network?”

Alex: “I would rather set fire to myself than join social network!

I’m so unmanageable when it comes to that stuff. If I had Facebook, Twitter, anything like that, I don’t know what would happen.

Erin: You don’t like to tweet and stuff like that.

Alex: You know it SHITS me.

But I just, I don’t like. … I don’t know, there’s something sort of so creepy and voyeuristic in like, “Look what everyone’s doing” and “Look at all my $%@&”.

 Alex: I’m actually surprised (by the support) sometimes because I don’t feel like I’m a very good celebrity. I don’t have a Twitter accountI barely manage my Facebook page and I don’t get to my e-mail often enough.

Pauly:  … tell us is your Twitter and your Instagram. Do you have one of those?

Alex: Me? Dude I don’t have any of that shit.

There s a lot of Alex O’Loughlin Facebook’s and stuff like that out there … but none of them are me. Literally, if I didn’t have an assistant, I would not open my mailbox. But that’s … I don’t know.

Alex: The … the desperate sort of desire for immediacy in everything, is wild, you know. That’s why I don’t … I don’t do social media. I don’t do …. my kids don’t have cell phones. 

Alex is not on social media!

What pisses me off the most about it all, is when people are perceived to be Alex, when they are not, and then those fans think whatever is posted, is done by Alex and shows his opinion about matters. It is misleading and fraudulent.

Those ignorant and innocent fans/people are fooled by those who just don’t care, as long as they get attention and more likes.

Link to our Video: 

 

This is our call to fellow fans to be responsible and considerate to other fans and to Alex.

Aloha!

A Summary of Old #AlexOLoughlin Articles about OCD and ADD

As promised my follow-up post from yesterday.

I am doing this post to illustrate why I would never even think to list OCD or ADD as a condition that Alex suffers from, or even suffered from in his youth. This post is about old articles and interviews with Alex, that refer to OCD and ADD.

I have looked at all the old articles that I could find about Alex and these subjects and will list them here in the order of when they were posted over the years. It should give a better understanding of how they fit, and then they are not just random quotes taken out of context and time.

Once again I want to mention, that direct quotes from Alex in these interviews are marked with blue writing.

(And remember you can click on the source name to read the full article from which it was quoted.)

References from Old Articles

  • 28 June 2005

The Canberra Times,

O’Lachlan says he grew up moving between his mother in Canberra and father in Sydney. “Canberra was a strange experience for me,” he says.“I never felt at home in Canberra.” He says there was no possibility of anonymity and he felt more at home in Sydney: “You could disappear.”

He struggled at school, leaving before he was 15. He had trouble reading and later discovered he had been suffering from an undiagnosed case of ADD, or attention deficit disorder.

Academia was not where he his life was at the time. “As a young’un, I just wanted to run to the world,” he says.

Here Alex talks about ADD and no mention of OCD at all. He uses the words later discovered. To me, that would suggest that he either read up on ADD, or talked to somebody about it, and found himself in the symptoms of it.

Maybe giving himself an explanation about his troubled childhood and something that might have been the reasons for his lack of interest in school etc.

  • April 2008

Cleo Entertainment,

Cleo:  How would your friends describe you?

Alex: My friends would say I’m dependable, a joker, intelligent. I’m multi-talented, probably because I’m so ADD. I can also be quiet.

Again, he is just saying – I’m so ADD. He is not specifying it as a diagnosed or a treated medical condition here.

  • December  2008

Alex in an audio interview with by Pam N

Pam: Are you obsessive about anything?

Alex: Most things. [Laughs]

Pam: Really, are you really?

Alex: You see, it’s the only way I get things done, you know. I kind of ….

Pam: In both …

Alex: I’m a little ADD, and so I have to be a little OCD to get … to focus on things long and hard enough to get them done, in my busy life. So yeah, I am definitely obsessive.

Pam: So you’re definitely obsessive, both in your work and your private life?

Alex: Yeah, more so in my work.

I’m a little ADD and have to be a little OCD to get things done – also this is just the way a lot of people talk and does not refer to a diagnosed or treated medical condition. And he also mentions it as more part of his work ethic, than a part of his personal life.

Director – Bob Hardy, Writer/producer – Simon Mirren and Alex as Vincent (BTS – Criminal Minds)

Then in early 2009, Alex got a role as the character Vincent in the TV Series Criminal Minds. The character suffers from a severe case of Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder (OCD).

Promoting the broadcast of the episode, Alex gave a number of interviews about it and explains his preparation for this character.

  • 28 April 2009

HuffPost TV

Question: Did you study the effects of obsessive-compulsive disorder before taking on this role?

Alex: Yeah, I actually had it. I think a lot of us have a certain degree of it. I know I do, but I’m not crippled by it. When I was a young boy in elementary school I was quite a blatant example of a child with OCD, and I remember how it used to make me feel and how difficult it was.

I also did a lot of reading and I studied the effects of OCD on children and how it continues from childhood to adulthood if left untreated.

Here Alex mentions that he used to have symptoms of OCD himself – There is no talk of professional diagnoses or treatment for it. He just adds that he thinks a lot of us have those symptoms to a certain degree.

I guess during his research, he found himself in some of the symptoms of it. I make that assumption from the words he uses, “I was a blatant example of a child with OCD”. Alex is doing some sort of self-diagnoses here, it seems.

But then he also talks of how it continues from childhood to adulthood, if not treated ….

My Take On TV

My main preparation was of course looking at the condition of Obsessive Compulsive Disorder, which I have little tiny elements of in my life anyway, but I’m certainly far from ruled by it. I think a lot of us have little things – some people don’t step on the cracks, a lot of us don’t even realize we’re doing it, we tie our shoes certain ways and we feel uncomfortable if we do it a different way, and there’s an anxiety within us.

It’s a very interesting condition. There’s an anxiety within us that gets quelled when we do that pattern, every time we do that behavior, it settles an anxiety within us. And a lot of it’s subconscious because it seems so minor because they’re day to day things that we have to do like tie our shoes or brush our teeth.

This was an exaggerated form, and it happens to certain people, it’s so unfortunate. The condition gets ramped up to a certain point where their entire life is taken over by these behaviors that they have to go through to stop the anxiety that they’re experiencing. Their whole life is catered to dealing with anxiety. So, I made some choices for the character, all my choices were based around this condition he suffers from.

Alex says: “My main preparation was of course looking at the condition of Obsessive Compulsive Disorder, which I have little tiny elements of in my life anyway, but I’m certainly far from ruled by it.”  <<< And again this is far from claiming any sort of professional diagnoses of the condition of OCD here.

∗  And remember his words here: “some people don’t step on the cracks” and “we tie our shoes certain ways”

theTVaddict

My main preparation with this character was the obsessive-compulsive stuff because that’s the thing that rules his life and keeps him doing what he does time and time again. His OCD is at the core of his physical being.

Here he just talks about Vincent and his condition.

  • April 2009

Entertainment Tonight

I did a lot of research on Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder. There is more to it than that. OCD is an anxiety disorder. The patterns that people have … you yourself might have some patterns that you are not aware of. A lot of us do.

The patterns that people have in their daily life, such as putting their sunglasses on with both hands, or the way they tie their shoes. There are patterns that we have in real life that ease an anxiety that is inside of us. This is an extreme case of it.

Again, Alex just talks about his research on the subject of OCD and how we all have signs of it in our lives.

I hated school as a kid. I just wanted to run through forests and not be inside, but now I read a lot. My bed stand has about 10 books and I’ve been reading a lot of medical journals and scripts.

Okay, in this article there was no talk about ADD or OCD, but Alex mentions his hate for school and how he is so different now.

  • 30 September 2009

Timeout New York

I have an ultimate goal: I want long-term health. I want to be fit when I’m in my seventies. The work I do now and the seeds I sow now will pay off later. So when I take vacations, I’m not a slovenly person. I’ll really enjoy take a nice long walk on the beach or do surfing.

Plus, I’m all ADD, I’m fidgeting all the time, which must burn a few calories.

Another casual mention of his ADD personality – fidgeting all the time. Again, no talk of diagnoses or treatment.

  • 8 October 2009

Zap2It

I had a bit of OCD as a kid, quite a bit, actually. I wouldn’t step on a crack. It would take me an hour to get my shoes tied, because I had this weird OCD thing.

Please note that this article was compiled for Zap2it . It does not look like an interview where the person who wrote the article actually quotes what Alex said to her directly. We have no evidence of the original article where they got this quote from. Or maybe she did in fact get the words from Alex during an interview.

  The words that were used here, only remind me of something that Alex said in the earlier interview, but differently – remember – “some people don’t step on the cracks” and “we tie our shoes certain ways”

But even if it was a real direct quote of what he said – there is nothing mentioned here other than, “had a bit of OCD as a kid”. And also, not stepping on cracks and taking time to tie shoes, do not really constitute a professional diagnosis of OCD at all.

 

Of course, 2009 and 2010 were some of the busiest years for Alex. Soon after the Criminal Minds interviews in 2009, he filmed the pilot episode for Three Rivers. Then immediately he went on to film The Back-Up Plan. Once finished with that, he started filming Three Rivers and did a lot of promotion for it and the movie Whiteout.

Then Three Rivers got canceled, but Alex immediately got the part in Hawaii Five-0. Soon after filming the pilot for Hawaii Five-0, he started promotion for The Back-Up Plan. Then it was the move back to Hawaii and filming of the show, until January 2011 and time for a new interview.

 

In March 2011, the GQ interview was published and with it, it got fans and sites eagerly quoting it.  Everybody now suddenly states that Alex suffered from OCD and ADD as a child or still suffer from it now. Let’s have a look at why ….

  • March 2011

GQ Style Australia

He may not suffer depression, but O’Loughlin has struggled with other issues. As an adult, he was diagnosed with Attention Deficit Disorder (ADD) and Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder (OCD). But when I ask how these have affected his life, he grows cagey. Once again I am forced to reassure him, but he eventually answers the question with candour.

“I still have ADD. It’s something I’ve learned to live with. It affects people in different ways. It affected my learning when I was younger and I was never medicated for it. It was something that did make me feel like I was different and apart from everyone, made me feel isolated.

Every girlfriend I’ve ever had has had a moment when they’ve gone crazy at me because they’ll say something and, literally, two or three minutes later I’ll respond.  People think I’m rude or ignoring them but I’m not at all. I retain everything. It’s just the way my brain chemistry works. I’m actually a really loving, attentive person.”

The OCD, says O’Loughlin, is now mostly a thing of the past. In the calming atmosphere of Hawaii, his childhood days of taking hours to tie his shoes just right are a fading memory. However, he does admit to having occasional obsessive urges.

“If I get OCD about something, I’m like, ‘Oh my God, I have to do it.’” He pauses, laughs and adds, “So you’ve just ascertained that I should be imprisoned and medicated.”

The divorce of O’Loughlin’s parents at a young age undoubtedly contributed to his difficult childhood. Born in Canberra, O’Loughlin spent his younger years shuttling between his mother’s home in the capital and his father’s in Sydney.

During high school, he admits he was a tearaway. I ask whether his undiagnosed ADD may have contributed to him playing truant, getting expelled and dropping out in his mid-teens.

“I dunno, probably. I suppose everything contributes to everything, doesn’t it? I was like, ‘I don’t like it here because I’m not really learning very much because you don’t know how to teach me. So fuck off.’ That was my anxious condition speaking back then, and it just didn’t make sense for me to stay there.”

And here we have the journalist claiming that Alex was diagnosed with ADD and OCD as an adult. Something that was never said in any of the interviews we mentioned before of anything that Alex said himself. You can go back and read them all again. He always talked about discovered, undiagnosed, and not treated. And even here in this article, those are his words that he used.

I, therefore, take this “adult diagnosis” as not reliable at all and just some assumption that the journalist made from somewhere. There was no firm question from him given here and also why does he say Alex was cagey about it. Most probably because he was annoyed that the subject was being brought up and exaggerated and out of context?

Alex mentions here that he feels he still suffers from ADD – but that he learned to live with it. And again, no talk about a diagnosis or treatment from him. And when he talks about OCD he says: “I get OCD about something”. That is hardly claiming a diagnosed or a treated condition. It is again just general talk about being OCD about things.

  • August 2011

Men’s Fitness 

This is particularly impressive for a guy plagued by attention deficit disorder growing up in Australia. “It went undiagnosed and I managed to keep it hidden, but it caused a lot of frustration,he says.

Yet, whenever he did martial arts or any form of exercise, the problem seem to disappear. “When I stopped being cerebral and became physical, my mind cleared. That’s probably why I like to be so active [today]. It’s a huge part of the balance of who I am.”

Again, the ADD is mentioned here as undiagnosed and never treated, other than getting better with physical activity. No mention of OCD.

 ET

I think my career is still a work in progress. There are many things I want to do, so many people I want to work with, so many different opportunities out there as an actor. It’s a really good question. Fundamentally, on this show, it took me years and years and years to get my workload down to a point where I could even conceptualize doing something like directing, because it takes a lot of time and a lot of energy.

I know myself — I don’t do anything half-a**ed — so I think I did a hundred prep hours on this thing, almost like a bit of a psycho; I was a little OCD with it.

Again Alex just a mention being a little OCD about his job as director on the episode. No diagnosed medical condition or treatment.

 

These are then ALL the articles of interviews with Alex that I could find on the subjects of OCD and ADD. And I hope you get the drift of my reasoning of why I would never say that Alex suffers from these conditions now, or as a child.

In my opinion, only a diagnosis by a professional should be used as a reference for any such claims.

Some basic explanations for OCD and ADD:

Obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD) is a mental disorder in which you have thoughts (obsessions) and rituals (compulsions) over and over. They interfere with your life, but you cannot control or stop them.

 

Attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) is a problem caused by the presence of one or more of these findings: not being able to focus, being overactive, or not being able to control behavior.

And what do the experts say:

Selfdiagnosing your mental illness may lead to trivializing the mental illness or magnifying it, both of which can be dangerous.

Diagnosis can only be given by a qualified expert because selfdiagnosis lacks credibility. Selfdiagnosis can turn serious psychiatric disorders into mere fashion labels, in such a way that trivializes them. A clear example of a diagnosis being trivialized is Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder (OCD). While OCD can be highly debilitating, it isn’t rare to hear people say “I’m so OCD!” in relation to everyday things like being clean and tidy—thus trivializing the condition. 

Once again I want to emphasize that I do not say Alex does or doesn’t suffer from these conditions. Or that he never suffered from it in his youth. And from the evidence that I can see in these interviews, I can not conclude that he was ever professionally diagnosed with it. And he actually confirmed that he was never treated for either ADD or OCD.

Only if there is any other old interview that I have not seen yet, that clearly confirms it, or if in future he would personally actually confirm that such a professional diagnosis was ever made, will I take it as a true fact or post it anywhere.

And even with this latest podcast where Alex talks a lot about his troubled youth, yet there is no mention of either ADD or OCD as conditions he suffered from.

I just feel that to make claims about mental conditions that were never formally and professionally diagnosed or treated, is risky. Even professionals sometimes struggle to make the correct diagnosis and a lot of symptoms can overlap in different conditions.

 

So many people have serious debilitating problems connected to metal issues and it should not be diminished. We can all see ourselves in the symptoms of many mental disorders or conditions, but that does not mean that we actually suffer from it or should list it as part of our lives …..

Life around #AlexOLoughlin – a week in review (15 – 24 Jul 2017)

Five years ago when we started this site, we mainly did it to have some fun in our own way with our online friends who also adored Alex. At the time there were a number of fansites for Alex and they were doing a great job at keeping fans updated on a daily basis about things around Alex and Hawaii Five-0. We were not really a news site, but more of just a fun site. Since then nearly all of the worthwhile sites have closed down – all for different reasons. We personally still miss them all dearly.

Seeing such a lot of the old information getting lost, we started to repost some of the old articles and interviews and do transcripts of most of the videos as well. But our main focus always remained at sharing as many good quality pictures (old and new) of Alex as we can find, as well as Paula’s animated gifs and picture art of Alex. We also had some fun incorporating them with studies of Alex and his work.

We only started doing these weekly review post 2 years ago when our friends at AOL.WorldWide stopped updating their site and doing these weekly updates. We saw a very time-consuming void that needed to be filled and we took up the task and added our own flair to it. However, since then another site also started doing wrap-ups and we see no need for all this double work in a relatively small fandom. We do not want to just duplicate things and this will, therefore, be our last weekly wrap for the time being – Until we find a different way to keep you entertained with the latest news and keep the discussions going.

A matter that also disheartened us during this past week, is that some people are determined to suck the life out of being a fan and having fun on social media. A ‘photographer’ who has been hanging around the set for the past 2 seasons, whose pictures everybody have been sharing for a long time already, got his tail in a twist because people have been sharing his pictures and using them in videos, without giving him credit. Trust me we can sympathize with him, because we know the feeling. He subsequently locked his Twitter account and only direct followers can see his pictures. He, however, forgot, that now those few who do have access there, can post his pictures (with seemingly full credit to him) and everybody can see it, but none of the links to his pages works for those who do not follow him. Clever dear man – Cut off your nose to spite your face? Now others actually get the credit for his hard work – even if they ‘share’ where that they got it from him? And in my experience, in a few weeks from now, those random set pictures will be old news and nobody will even bother about them anymore.

 

I also need to add to that, that even after promoting this person’s pages (specifically mentioning him in last week’s post) and sharing the links to his pictures and videos, he decided to block us for some reason. Most probably because we did not try to suck up to him or something – sorry, but we are not in the ass-kissing business. Neither do we care to share pictures shared exclusively to specific sites or from accounts that are locked.

We all are here to have some fun with Alex as fans and unnecessary pettiness of exclusivity only spoils the fun. We honestly want no part in that. Thank you to those who share their pictures freely with other fans. Only a few people are ever that lucky to find the opportunity to get close to Alex. And we appreciate every single one of you who are willing to share those few precious moments with the rest of us.

So let’s get on with the business of having fun with Alex …..

Life around #AlexOLoughlin – 3 weeks in review (26 Jun – 14 Jul 2017)

 

https://i1.wp.com/www.echoerom.com/wcf/images/smilies/smiley110.gif

Yes, can you believe it, hiatus for cast and crew of Hawaii Five-0 ended more than a week ago already. It will definitely be a different kind of season for the show, and hopefully there are a lot of fresh new stuff to look forward to. Of course we are here to support Alex in his career and he remains our No 1 priority.

I am sometimes kind of bemused when people come here and try to insult us by calling us Alex-obsessed, and accuse us that we tend to place Alex on a pedestal. Well DUHwe are a fansite for him, so? And about the pedestal – most of the time he just gets himself up there, by who he is, what he does and how he does it. Sometimes those who work with him, or meet him, do it for us. They do it  without somebody even asking them for it, or them getting reward for it. They just can’t help but sing his praises. And most of the time, the praises are about him just being a very grounded dude who does his job with passion. What is there not to love about that?

Just to explain some of our logistics again, apart from this blog, we also have supporting pages on Twitter, Facebook, Instagram and Pinterest. As we have done for the past two years, when fresh news and pictures come in during the week, we first post the worthwhile things on our Facebook and Twitter pages. At the end of the week, we make this summary post of all the latest stuff happening during the week and post as many of the pictures as we can find from people who post news regarding Alex. All our pictures and news will mainly be about him and things that affect him. We also try to add some fun to the post, and not just report the news ……

As always Thank You for those who take pictures and post pictures of Alex. And Thank You to those who find pictures that were posted in obscure places away from the tags where we normally look for new information – if we can see who found it we will normally credit them for the find. And Thank you to Bee for helping us locate all the stuff that we need to post – You are a star!

Here are some of the accounts that are worth your while to follow to get regular updates of pictures:  hawaii isla 808 @hawaii_isla808   ,    ,

Most of the pictures we add here are cropped and edited to correct some parts of it and to make Alex more visible. And remember that the credit and links to the original posts are in all in the names. And you can click on the pictures to make them bigger in order to see better.

  • And if any of you are wondering who the actress is who are on so many of the pictures on set with Alex and Scott – It is Meaghan Rath. And although we could speculate that she might be a new regular cast member, there are no official news about it yet and we do not know if she is just a guest star in this first episode or if she will be there for more. Guess we will have to wait and see during the next few weeks if she remains on set, or if any official information about new cast members come through. Please don’t jump to conclusions and condemn the poor woman already before we know more.

David Stoker (20 November 2010)  Hawaii 50 filming today at the church. Here is a photo of Alex O’Loughlin who plays Steve McGarrett. Very nice guy. In fact the whole cast and crew are super nice. They are great representatives of the Aloha spirit of Hawaii.

Other News for the week:

  • The new season kicked off with a Blessing ceremony at the studio on 7 July, with no footage from any news outlets. We only got some glimpses of the event. It looked like everybody was in good spirits. Of the main cast Alex, Chi and Jerry were there.
  • Blessing:

Dennis Chun  (8 July) Update from #dennischun Aloha, Most meaningful and beautiful Blessing Ceremony today. Great to see everyone and feel the eagerness to begin filming. Have a feeling that Season 8 will be a most unpredictable, meaningful and exciting one.
Mahalo all your aloha and support.

Angela Gerstner (8 July ) Saved the best for last. Here’s a personal message I got from a crew member about this Friday’s blessing ceremony of H50 Season 8. I would like to share this for my fellow Alex and H50 fans: “Alex gave a great uplifting speech today. And Lenkov spoke highly about the cast and crew.”

  • Short Video taken at the event:

 

Alex and Charity:

  • Congratulations to Lynn who came in as the highest bidder of the CharityBuzz auction at $13 500. I am sure Taylor’s Gift Foundation and Alex are grateful that the bidding went that high. Lynn, we can only wish you the best of times there in Hawaii, and hope you enjoy you time on the set with Alex.
  • Here is a post from somebody who on a previous occasion also won a bid – this time not spesifically to meet Alex, but apparently Peter arranged it for them.

@PLenkov CharityB auction tomorrow also reminds me of how gracious you were in letting me & my dad meet Alex 2yrs ago when we won. Thx again

Alex & Family:

  • Belated birthday wishes to Alex’s eldest son Saxon, who celebrated his 20th birthday in the beginning of July.

 

Next Week:

  • They should wrap up with the first episode of Season 8 somewhere during this coming week and move onto Episode 8:02. Can you believe it?

Life around #AlexOLoughlin – month in review (26 May – 25 Jun 2017)

With just a week and a half left to start of filming of Season 8 of Hawaii Five-0, I can now say that this has been the least hiatus exposure we got from Alex in the five years we have been around. Lucky for us we got one new picture today, and it looks like Alex is in good health and good spirit, flying back from San Francisco to Hawaii with Malia.

Since our last review post, there has also been a few “new” older pictures posted. And of course the adorable Father’s Day and the ‘Behind The Scenes’ video from Watch! magazine shoot.

Life on the Set:

  • Not sure exactly when this was taken, but somewhere before July 2016

   Hawaii 5-O film Crew & Cast😍

  •  From the set of Three Rivers

 debsynergy🎬😷 ..then there were my days on the Paramount Lot with hunky Dr Yablonski (Alex O’Loughlin) on the short-lived CBS TV Series Three Rivers. He was one actor that really got into his part. He asked me to promo him sutures (stiching material used after surgery) so he could practice his techinque. He became an integral part of Donate Life (an organization that supports organ donation) and always wore the yellow bracelet that they had given him! He always had time for my vendors (signing autograph on Promo Work Hat). I used to visit the set and they would perch me on the camera dolly📽😎 #cbs #alexoloughlin #tvseries #setlife

Next Week:

  • We hope that in a weeks time, there will be some news of exactly when filming will start (We presume on the 6th of July), and if we might be able to get a glimpse of the Blessing Ceremony for the season. We will as usual try to keep you posted and provide you with links of any live feeds or videos of the event.

Hope you enjoy the rest of your week!
