VIDEO: Malika Interviews Hawaii Five-0 Star Alex O’Loughlin
Leading up to this week’s season premiere of Hawaii Five-0, we are posting a video a day from our Hawaii Five-0 red carpet series. Maui Now’s Malika Dudley was there to capture all the action.
Wrapping up the series – Alex O’Loughlin has some strong statements to make about those that come to Hawaii without genuine Aloha in their hearts. He shares how Hawaii has changed him as a person and what lessons Hawaii has taught him that he will pass down to his children. He also shares his favorite neighbor island spot (hint, hint! It’s on the Big Island!)
Here are the rest of the videos in the series:

The annual “Sunset On The Beach” Hawaii Five-0 Premiere was held in Waikiki Saturday, Sept. 12, 2015, at Queens Surf Beach. Despite high humidity and the threat for heavy showers, thousands of residents and visitors gathered to watch the Season 6 premiere of Hawaii Five-0, “Mai Ho’oni I Ka Wai Lana Mālie.” This year, die-hard fans again camped out overnight to get the best seats. Those in attendance were able to view the premiere nearly 2 weeks ahead of the season premiere on CBS, Friday night September 25th.
HAWAII FIVE-0 is a contemporary take on the classic series about a new elite federalized task force whose mission is to wipe out the crime that washes up on the islands’ sun-drenched beaches. Detective Steve McGarrett, a decorated Naval officer-turned-cop, returns to Oahu to investigate his father’s murder and stays after Hawaii’s former governor persuaded him to head up the new team: his rules, no red tape and full blanket authority to hunt down the biggest “game” in town. Joining McGarrett is Detective Danny “Danno” Williams, a relocated ex-New Jersey cop – a working man in paradise who prefers skyscrapers to the coastline – but who’s committed to keeping the islands safe for his young daughter; Chin Ho Kelly, an ex-Honolulu police detective, and former protégé of McGarrett’s father, who was wrongly accused of corruption; Dr. Max Bergman, the quirky coroner; and Chin’s cousin, Kono Kalakaua, a beautiful and fearless native, eager to establish herself among the department’s elite. Assisting the team is Lieutenant Catherine Rollins, a dedicated military officer with romantic ties to McGarrett. McGarrett vows to bring closure to his father’s case, while the state’s brash FIVE-0 unit, who may spar and jest among themselves, is determined to eliminate the seedy elements from the 50th state.
