Ian Anthony Dale as Adam Noshimuri

In the final season of “Hawaii Five-0,” the brave crime-fighter Adam Noshimuri was pulled back into the dark world of his old life as a son of the Yakuza.

The actor behind this character, Ian Anthony, was happy about the ending, even calling it a “really juicy arc for Adam.”

At the beginning of his career, Dale played many bad guys, and he longed for the opportunity to play good guys. On “Hawaii Five-0,” he was able to do both while having the chance to make his directorial debut.

Unlike some of the show’s stars, Dale has been quite active outside the series. While being a member of the “Hawaii Five-0” team, he also played leading roles in the series “Murder in the First” and “Salvation” and made appearances in several other shows and films.

But, in his own words, it is directing that became “one of the most challenging yet gratifying experiences” of his career. The actor is also on a mission to help other Asian-Americans like him through his production and development company called 20K.

However, there’s a possibility that Dale would want to take a little break from all of his activities and spend some time with his wife and two children.

He and his wife, Nicole Garippo, have a two-year-old son, Roman, and in January, they welcomed a daughter.

Alex O’Loughlin as Steve McGarrett

Unfortunately, the hugely popular CBS crime drama, “Hawaii Five-0” will conclude its successful 10-season run this April. The news came as quite a surprise for the fans, but the show’s lead, Alex O’Loughlin, has talked about his possible exit from the show several times over the years.

In an interview, the star revealed that he had numerous injuries sustained on the set of “Hawaii Five-0.” O’Loughlin even considered stepping away from the show after Season 8, as his back injury forced him to look at his future. Hs shared:

“My body’s pretty broken up. I got through most of them -- the last surgery I had on my elbow, I came to work the next day at 5:30 a.m., I just had them bandage my elbow. “

However, he changed his mind because of the stem cell treatment that had a beneficial effect on his back troubles, and the show continued for two more seasons. Unfortunately, the actor didn’t feel like he could sign on for another round.

In his statement about his exit, O’Loughlin expressed his gratitude to the team, crew, and fans, saying that it was an extraordinary experience for him:

“This show has been pretty much every waking moment for the last ten years of my life. Everywhere I go on this planet, in every language, I am McGarrett to all these people.”

It was significant for O’Loughlin, personally and professionally, because the previous two CBS shows he’s been a part of – “Moonlight” and “Three Rivers” – were canceled after just one season.

Luckily, the police drama performed great throughout its entire ten-year run and has been seen in more than 200 countries. But many still wonder if O’Loughlin’s exit is the real reason for canceling the still highly-rated “Hawaii Five-0” series.

In 2018, the Executive Producer of the show, Peter Lenkov, thought that although it was built on the shoulders of Steve McGarrett, “Hawaii Five-0” would survive without O’Loughlin by putting other characters forward, with Scott Caan’s Danno taking the lead.

However, Caan has been doing several episodes less than O’Loughlin during each season since 2015 (for reasons we’ll discuss later in this article). So it’s unlikely that he would seriously consider becoming the full-time lead again.

As a farewell gift to the fans, O’Loughlin has written and directed one of the episodes of Season 10. For the time being, there is no information about any other upcoming projects for Alex.

Katrina Law as Quinn Liu

The latest addition to the show, Katrina Law, teased in an interview with New York Post that the “Hawaii Five-0’s” finale is “super-emotional” because the entire cast “got to say our proper goodbyes.”

When Law signed on to join “Hawaii Five-0” at the beginning of Season 10, she didn’t know much about her character. “As far as I knew, I was going to be a female fighter [...] everything was very secretive,” she shared.

But as she already had experience playing a rebel, fitting into the action-packed series wasn’t a difficult task at all. The actress is probably best known as Nyssa Al Ghul on “Arrow,” but becoming a part of “Hawaii Five-0” was something special for the actress. She shared:

“It’s known around the world, and it’s self-explanatory. It’s also one of the first shows my parents have been able to brag about.”

Of course, Katrina would love to stay on such an internationally popular show longer than just one season, but did she know that it would be the series’ finale? In an interview, the actress revealed that “it was 50-50,” adding:

“When you walk into a show that is entering season 10, you know that it’s season 10. If there was ever a time to end a show, season 10 seems like a sweet spot.”

But she is extremely grateful for her time with “Hawaii Five-0,” mainly because she got the chance to spend a whole year in a “legit paradise,” as the former “Arrow” star described Hawaii.

In Season 10, she had a chance to play a crossover role on “Magnum PI.” So even with the show ending, there’s a chance that there will be a continuation.

Also, Katrina revisited the set of “Arrow” to become a part of its finale. She previously revealed that she would absolutely love to appear in some other Arrowverse shows.

What's more, in a Reddit Ask Me Anything session last November, the actress revealed that she might have a new Hallmark Christmas movie in the works.

Meaghan Rath as Tani Rey

We are used to seeing Meaghan Rath as the fearless, young member of Steve McGarrett’s team, Tani Rey. But it turns out that the actress’ favorite genre is a combination of comedy and romance. In 2015, Rath revealed that she would love to find her place in a comedy series.

“Even on the dramas that I would work on, my instinct is to go towards the levity of a situation,” Rath explained.

After three seasons with “Hawaii Five-0,” she landed a pilot for a new CBS comedy called “Jury Duty.” Just as the show's title suggests, it will follow a group of jurors, who are sequestered until they all agree on a verdict – however, they can't agree on lunch.

Apparently, it will take them quite a long time to reach a verdict. Rath will be playing Jen – a book editor who feels like she’s surrounded by married people with kids while she is still single.

Interestingly, Rath’s real-life husband – Jack Cutmore-Scott, also plays the lead. The pair met on the set of the sitcom “Cooper Barrett's Guide to Surviving Life,” where they played sweethearts.

The couple married during the pandemic, and their guests witnessed the wedding via Zoom. Meaghan and Jack originally planned to say "I do" on May 16th. However, the universe changed its plans.

They still got married on May 16th, but the two made sure to abide by safety regulations as they enjoyed their quarantined wedding in their backyard.

Beulah Koale as Junior Reigns

New Zealand actor, Beulah Koale, joined “Hawaii Five-0” in Season 8 together with Rath to replace the original cast members, Daniel Dae Kim and Grace Park. That was the culmination of his breakthrough year when Koale starred in his first Hollywood feature film, “Thank You for Your Service.”

Quite an achievement for a person who once wanted to be a rugby player and seriously considered a career as a personal trainer. So Koale took his wife and two young sons and moved to Hawaii, where they found their happiness.

Apart from being on “Hawaii Five-0,” Koale became a cast member of Taika Waititi’s sports comedy “Next Goal Wins” alongside Michael Fassbender, Elisabeth Moss, and Armie Hammer. His other project is a short action film called “38 Minutes.” Both movies are currently in post-production.

Scott Caan as Danny Williams

In an interview with Esquire, Scott Caan revealed what made him decide to do Hawaii Five-0: “I read the pilot, and I'm like, ‘This has promise and isn't stupid. This is some of the best stuff I'll be able to have done.’'

But it wasn’t until a Golden Globe nomination that he realized that people actually liked what he was doing on the show.

Caan claims that he’s never seen the original Hawaii Five-0 series. However, he seamlessly fits into the role of a Hawaii-hating, single dad who’s been recruited into McGarrett’s squad against his will. But Caan was never able to make himself love Hawaii as much as his character eventually did.

Son of the Hollywood legend James Caan, Scott was raised in Los Angeles and still calls this city his home. Unlike many of the show’s cast members who have made themselves at home in Hawaii, Caan continued to live in LA with his girlfriend Kacy Byxbee and their daughter Josie James Caan.

That means that his schedule was divided between Hawaii and Los Angeles and eventually resulted in him doing fewer episodes each season.

Caan is a multi-talented person. He initially didn’t plan to go into acting, but you have most definitely seen him on the big screen in “Ocean's Eleven” and in the TV series “Entourage.”

Caan also wrote and directed the comedy “The Dog Problem'' and the play “The Trouble We Come From.” Moreover, Scott is an accomplished photographer, whose book, “Scott Caan Photographs, Vol. 1.,” was published in 2009.

Currently, there is no information about any of his upcoming movies. We’ll keep an eye on Caan and his co-stars from “Hawaii Five-0” and will let you know all of the news as soon as we know it.
