• ‘Hawaii Five-0’ star considers herself more of a city person
• Grace Park’s career was built on playing strong characters
• ‘Battlestar Galactica” was like filming long feature film
Although filmed in one of the most popular vacation spots on the planet, “Hawaii Five-0” star Grace Park sees Hawaii as less of a paradise and just the place where she works through numerous pages of the script — often loaded with big stunts and special effects — before the sun goes down.
Plus, she considers herself more of a city person.
“Not everybody’s into sun and surf,” Park says. “People go to Hawaii for a lot of different reasons and I’ve come to understand them better. But I am more suited for the big city. And, when you talk about the location it’s usually the highlights. No one talks about all the work which is usually about 95% grunt work.”
That’s why she’s enjoying her time off since filming for the fifth season of “Hawaii Five-0” ended a few weeks ago. One of the last episodes of the CBS series for this year was a particularly tough because most of the episode deals with her character’s past.
