Alex O’Loughlin and his Hawaii Five-0 co-stars, Grace Park, Daniel Dae Kim, and Scott Caan, hit the cover of emmy‘s “For Your Consideration” issue.
Here’s what the cast had to share with the mag:
Alex on his character, Steve McGarrett: “This character is a cool cat. He’s got that Jason Bourne-Jack Bauer thing, where he has his own moral code. And I love the action stuff! I’m not a stuntman, but I’m athletic, and [as McGarrett] I like hanging people off buildings and tying them to the hoods of cars and then driving really fast.”
Scott on deciding to sign on for the CBS series: “My first instinct was no. I have no desire to do just a straight procedural. This is my job and I’m doing it with full passion. If it runs twelve seasons, I’ll be I my forties, and I can parlay it into whatever I want, you know?”
Daniel on showing a different side: “That people see that Jin [from Lost] was actually a character, and not who I was, is meaningful to me. I loved my experience on Lost and I’ll make no bones about it. That said, it was a huge ensemble and I wanted to make sure that I was an integral part of [this] show.”
Grace on dealing with fame: “This has been a really interesting journey. I’m really grateful [for the opportunity], but with that comes a lot of exposure. There’s an inordinate amount of attention put on actors. Some people want to make their lives public, but that doesn’t mean everybody does. It kind of feels you landed in – well, not really “Alice in Wonderland”, because its not that fun.”
