Alex O’Loughlin Weekly Wrap-Up- Week of January 8 2018

  

Alex, cast, and crew went back to work this past week, and what a week it was! As we had previously mentioned, Alex was prepping to direct before the holiday break and on the first day back he debuted in that new role. In the last wrap-up we mentioned that we hoped that those there with him would share a glimpse into this milestone, and fans could not be happier for what went down on Monday when he took the helm for episode 8.18.

The show was shooting on location and a very good spot for photos. Thanks to a few local photographers and Jimmy Buffet, the day was chronicled for the fans beyond what could have been hoped for. Not only were there a few pics of Alex with the director headphones on but there were tons of them plus videos, too! We have provided them all below.

Before we jump into that part, we at the site would like to take this time to sincerely congratulate Alex for this accomplishment. He has worked hard over his career to get to this point and he seems to have never taken his career for granted. The cast, crew, and the many guest stars have shown time and time again that they enjoy working with him and have the utmost respect for him. As fans, we could not have chosen a more stand up guy to journal. It will be interesting to see moving forward whether he has caught the director’s bug and will go on to many more projects as one or whether this was a one time thing. Either way, we know he is doing a bang up job this time and can not wait to see the finished product with “Directed by Alex O’Loughlin” on our screens.

Now on to the wrap-up.

 

As we mentioned Monday was the big day and here is what came out of it. Starting with Hawaii-Isla-808 who provided the most activity from that day. Note: Pics in the collages can be clicked on for larger size.

It seems to take many angles and a nutritious treat to make it as a director.

Later that same day, Alex returned to the studio and turned into Steve so he could also do a scene with Jimmy Buffett. Here are a few things Jimmy shared via his IG stories.

Although Alex was working hard, there also seemed to be some time to still goof off. So from Meaghan’s IG stories, here are those moments.

 

 

Fan Photos

The fan photo of the week goes to this couple from Germany as they were able to see Alex in his element on Tuesday night. There were many night shoots this week so Alex and the rest of the cast and crew all worked some long hours.

So as you can see from above it was quite a week for Alex. This week, Alex should be wrapping up directing and go back to being only Steve for 8.19. As for when 8.18 will air, it is expected towards the end of March. 

That’s it for another one. It seems like it was just yesterday that they just came back and started filming season 8. Time sure does fly!  Have a good week everyone!
