Alex Aiono Talks About Netflix’s Finding ‘Ohana Movie


In our Q&A series Last callWith some of our favorite celebs, we get to the bottom of every thing – from the last text they sent to the last thing they watched. This week singer and actor Alex Aiono answered our call.

You probably know Alex Aiono for his YouTube videos and music career, but now the 24-year-old is taking over the acting world with his first feature film role on Netflix Find Ohana. The family film, which premiered on January 29, is about two siblings from Brooklyn, NY, who go on a trip to Oahu to learn more about their Hawaiian heritage. In honor of the movie’s release, we had a chat with Aiono, where he revealed everything from the last day on set to the last person he was hit by the stars about. Note: It was one of his colleagues. Read on to see what he had to say.

Last day of shooting Finding ‘Ohana?

It was so bittersweet. Here we are at the end of an amazing journey full of firsts with a group of people I had so many memories with and it was just so surreal. With the sad feeling of leaving it all behind the next day, we also had to celebrate all the hard work we had just done. The good news is that this industry is so small and I know I’ll see everything mine Find Ohana Family again soon.
