Before Alex was Famous?

alex o'lachlan

Found an article and an older photo of Alex from Mercado TV. Here is a tidbit:

Back in 2002 however, Alex O’Lachlan (as he was then known by) was one of Sydney’s Sexiest Barmen in a photo shoot for the now-defunct gay photography magazine “blue”. According to the blurb, he was in his final year at NIDA and his favourite pick-up line was “Um, excuse me, sorry to bother you but I was just wondering if you would like to have sex with me sometime.” Now this is not meant to insinuate in any way that he is gay because, sadly, I don’t think he is but isn’t it funny to see him before he practised that smouldering look he flashes for the cameras so often these days.

  1. Oh, Terry how right you are !!! They truly do get better looking with age 🙂 🙂 🙂 🙂

    1. To ‘wubbywubby’ and Tif……
      Perhaps so ~ but, before you start ~ one should consider where one lives… ie: ‘glass house’ and ‘stones throwed’ does come to mind. Do you really think that you are doing Alex any justice this way? I really thought better of you ~ Tiffany! Now, I’m not so sure. Alex ~ If you’re there….. talk to me….. I’m listening!
      I’m just a stupid, almost old lady in Hammond, IN, but I know talent when I see it.
      I just watched the ‘Mary Bryant’ mini series, and I loved it!!!
      Hey! Alex ~ I think you are GREAT!

  2. That photo right there only proves one thing, that men really do get better looking with age.

  3. Ahhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh, he’s so dang cute!!!

  4. Thanks for the pic, he was cute then BUT I still LOVE MY MICK!!!!!!
    Just can’t help it love, fell in love with a vamp and can’t shake it. And oh the hair that Mick has is so much sexier 🙂 🙂 🙂

  5. Re: Tish S

    I’m sorry, but I really don’t understand what you’r post is refering to. Are you upset with someone, or with some of the threads???

    Did I miss something here??

    I can’t find any derogatory comments. I thought we were all here just lovin’ on our guy.

  6. Typo sorry: should read:

    I do so WISH people would carefully read some of these threads and not just comment …….

  7. I have to agree with you on that count, too, carree… The written thread actually sounded more derogatory than a star of merit…..

    I do so people would carefully read some of these threads and not just comment on this handsome, intelligent and genuine man… Alex is Alex, a nice young guy as charming and untouched by Tinseltown as the day he set foot in America…

    And that is the truth…

  8. He was a cutie but now he’s gorgeous. Aging certainly agrees with him. He’s not getting older, he’s getting better! Thanks Tiffany

    1. Yepppp….you are right :love:

  9. ROFPMSL Sorry ladies but this pic i bet even if he saw it would make him laugh however he is still the most gorgeous man ive ever seen but it was nice for a giggle

  10. I just noticed how much this pix looks like Mick in Moonlight, before he was turned.

  11. i,ve seen this photo elsewhere but as cutie as is in that photo i prefere him the way his looking now ,his aging gracefully you no how some men get better looking with age ALEX is one of those lucky us just hotter and hotter he’ll get , what do you think???

  12. Oh, I love that picture! Thanks for posting – Alex is so adorable no matter age.

  13. I prefer the Alex of today, the more hair the sexier he looks. But, young and cute here too. And I love his smoldering looks over the cheeky grin. But, he’s a doll anyway you look at it and we love him for being the sexy talented actor that he is.

  14. I could have gone a lifetime without that photo and the comments below it.

  15. You gotta love that cheeky grin, though. I’d love to see pictures of him when he was 16, and when he was a baby. He must have been an adorable child!

  16. Certainly good young there. Yep, agree with everyone he is like a good wine, or fine cheese matures and looks better as he gerts olders.
    No smoldering look,(that comes with practise and a photographer giving instructions) just a big cheeky grin.

  17. This picture makes me giggle. ROFL!

  18. alex looked good then and looks better now he really did not change much he still looks good the older he gets the better he looks

  19. He has definitely gotten better with age. Love the Alex of today.

    1. i agree, he is definately getting better with age….it’s a shame though, that he had to loose his accent, i think that he’s more sexy with it…then without..

  20. ROFL! What a cutie patootie he was ;D I think if he had asked me I would have said ‘how ’bout right now?’ LOL! Great find! Thanks for sharing.
