Mark Dacascos takes a Twitter hiatus

Actor Mark Dacascos made a surprising announcement at about 8:00 PM HST, stating that he is taking an indefinite break from Twitter.  Unfortunately, he’s already deleted his account, and I wasn’t able to pull the tweets directly…  To paraphrase, he stated that he loved technology and especially loved the fans, but he’s so busy with work and family that he decided to close the account.  Aloha Mark, hope we see you soon as Wo Fat, and thanks for keeping your fans close on Twitter.

Update: Thanks to fellow blogger @TalkinToU, we have a screenshot:

Krisin’s interview with Alex O’Loughlin and Daniel Dae Kim on E! Online

Check out Kristin Dos Santos’ interview with Alex and Daniel on E! Online.

Alex: “To be embraced the way I have on this island, by the people here, …I can’t stress enough how much it means to me…  Having people come up to me in the street, on airplanes, or all over the place, they put a hand on my shoulder and say “You’re the new young ambassador for our people,” …it’s like “Wow.”  I’m gonna make you guys as proud as I can and I hope we’ll be around for a long time.

Undercover Speacial Agent Eggfooyoung’s report

@eggfooyoung got to see some of the filming of “Powa Maka Moana” on January 23rd and reported back to me (mild, mild spoiler):

I sat right by the down escalator since they were filming on the outside bar of Tiki’s.  It was a spring break scene with the music going loud to get the background actors dancing, but once Daniel & Grace started talking, the music is off, but the background had to keep on dancing like it was playing.   One scene they were looking for a guy  in a pink shirt and jeans.   Daniel and Grace go and talk to the bartender, and that’s when the  guy started running towards the pool with the Five-0’s chasing him.

See some of the photos in the Facebook group’s “Right Place, Right Time, Fan Photos 2011″.

A total of 13 new photos were uploaded to the “Right Place, Right Time, Fan Photos 2011″ folder.  Mahalo to @eggfooyoung and @DVaughn26 for contributing!

    Love your articles and juicy tidbits as always. Thanks Bob.

    I happened to be on Twitter last night when Mark tweeted his Aloha’s. He’s wonderful to his fans and often sends us his replies and appreciations. He replies almost to all my tweets, the most from any actor. So sad, I guess I can understand why he needs to do it for his kids but it’s still sad. Here are his last ones before they vanished. 😦

    I send you much aloha from Hawaii, MD

      Thanks so much Overdamoon to take the time to copy and paste, I appreciate it. I was surprised by the news as well and watched it as it happened. Of all the Five-0 cast and crew, I believe he personally responded to the most fan tweets.
