LAUREN Ger­man, who played The Hitch­hiker in blood-drenched hor­ror flick Texas Chain­saw Mas­sacre, has been signed to boost cop se­ries Hawaii 5-0. The Orange County-born ac­tor is one of sev­eral new faces to join the show. Oth­ers on the pay­roll in­clude Tom Size­more, Patty Duke and Billy Baldwin. Ger­man will have a re­cur­ring role as ex-home­land Se­cu­rity Of­fi­cer Lau­rie We­ston. What’s it like be­ing part of this Hawaii 5-0 group? Great. I def­i­nitely was a fish out of water when I got here. Even Pump­ing up the ac­tion and in­ten­sity. Just to have Tom Size­more . . . I haven’t got­ten to know him as a per­son yet but I’ve had a cou­ple of scenes with him and he’s so good and so in­tense. Terry O’quinn and Billy Baldwin are also great. We’re go­ing on boats and un­der­wa­ter and in the air and

fly­ing planes and I think the pro­duc­ers are try­ing to make it a big, big sea­son. My char­ac­ter is Lori We­ston and she comes from a home­land se­cu­rity back­ground and she’s tight with the gov­er­nor. Can you tell us about your first day on set? Alex (O’lough­lin) and Scott (Caan) give me a lot of s--about my first day. They still laugh about it. I’m sit­ting there in high-heeled boots with a gun dig­ging into me. They throw the three of us on horses, right. It’s like three amigo-style, walk­ing down a dirt road. I’m pour­ing sweat, ter­ri­fied of horses. My horse didn’t want to move, it just wanted to eat. So some­one came up and swat­ted my horse. It wanted to buck me off. I went up in the air and I was shak­ing. Then we were do­ing a stunt and I put my gun in the wrong way. It was mess up af­ter mess up. Alex spends a bit of time shirt­less on the show . . . He hasn’t been shirt­less around me. Which I de­mand. I haven’t been shirt­less (laughs) . . . not with my dou­ble-a breasts. Hawaii 5-0, Chan­nel 10, Wed­nes­day, 8.30pm
