The Honolulu native also wrote, directed and produced the 2013 indie film “The Haumana,” which centered on the host of a luau show, and was planning a sequel. Larrua said Woolford had already written a script. Woolford also had small roles in several movies, including “Godzilla,” and was part of a Hawaiian boy band called Brownskin. His “Hawaii Five-0” co-star Daniel Dae Kim wrote on Twitter, “As talented as you were, I will remember you most for your kindness. Thank you for sharing your light with us, @KeoWoolford. Rest In Peace.”
