For certain scenes in Episode 320, his hair was shaved into a buzz-cut and for other scenes in the episode and for the duration of Episode he did wear a wig.Luckily from the next episode onwards, they incorporated his buzz-cut into the show.: Together with the question about the toupee, people always want to suggest that Alex’s hair is thinning.Whenever he is seen shirtless as Steve, they cover both the tattoos above his nipples and also his lower back tattoo with make-up.Some confusion came from the 2 episodes in Season 1 of Hawaii Five-0, when he was wearing a temporary cast as Steve Mc Garrett on his left arm while shooting, as part of the story of him falling off a cliff and breaking his arm.: NO!They are kind of like…., they are ‘hazelly blue’, BUT they change colour! Depending on how much sleep I’ve had and when the sun is out.I know a lot of people say that, but mine actually do…. Alex did however wear a wig for 2 episodes of Hawaii Five-0 during Season 3.Most of us start to lose some hair as we grow older, but in fact Alex’s hair has always been thin.
The only ones that are left visible when shooting the show, are his bicep tattoos.
He has starred in more than a dozen of movies as well as TV shows across the USA and Australia.
Some of his popular role shaves come in: The Shield (2002), Criminal Minds (2005), Man-Thing (2005), Moonlight (2007), August Rush (2007), Three Rivers (2009) and The Back-up Plan (2010).
Born as an only child, he suffered from asthma from a young age and was open to some other deficiencies like attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) and also obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD).
As a result, he had to face several problems with his studies and finally quit school at 14 to work elsewhere.
