Alex O’Loughlin Admits He Sought Fame, But No Longer Wants It


As most of us know, Alex O’Loughlin recently turned 40 and he also seems to be reflecting on life a lot since then. First he spoke of an end date in mind for Hawaii Five O and now in a new article appearing in this morning’s Sydney Morning Herald  Alex O’Loughlin reflects more on life and talks about fame and his future.  

Will he leave Hollywood completely for a peaceful life with his family in Hawaii?

Here is a small excerpt


Even if the price is to give up acting? “I don’t want to go back to Hollywood,” he says. “I don’t know what I want to do. I don’t know if I want to to keep doing this. Yeah, maybe [I would give up acting]. I don’t know. I’m just being honest.”

All of that said, he is not unhappy with his life. “I don’t think there’s a destination in this [but] I’m well on my way to become the man that I hoped I would become one day, a man that reflects similar qualities to the men that I’ve looked up to in my life,” O’Loughlin says.

“And that is a direct result of the people that I’ve had the good fortune to be in contact with, befriend, get close to, and a lot of that has been because I have had this great opportunity on this show.”


The article also talks about all his injuries since starting Hawaii Five O.

As we talk, he rattles off an eye-watering list of injuries, from herniated discs in his neck, nerve damage, torn shoulder muscles, torn bicep tendons and more. “When I show all the medical records to the doctor each year for my physical, the one for this season was funny,” he observes wryly. “She was just like, are you f—ing kidding me?”


Does Alex think it has been worth it and does he have any regrets?

  1. So in other words. We may not see Alex acting anymore on other different acting roles? He will only be typecast and known as Steve Mcgarrett on H50 and that is it?
