I used to get a lot of questions about my wifes uncle Gilbert Kauhi.
He played the role of Zulu on Hawaii Five-0 for about 5 seasons.
A lot of people wonder why he was fired from the show… The simple story I’ve been told over and over is that he just plain and simple didn’t like Jack Lord.
Here is a clip of the opening, you can see he is even credited at the :50 Second Mark.
Here he is in a picture later on in life at a Hawaii Five-O Convention before he passed away 4 years ago:
And here is a 1996 Starbulletin article on the convention they had.
Many don’t realize this… but he is a “Punaboy” and was raised here on The Big Island.
