Comic Con fans were treated to an unusual teaser trailer for Once Upon a Time’s upcoming second season recently, as the shadowy figure of Captain Hook searched Mr Gold’s Pawn shop for his missing hook.

Now, the news has broken that Irish actor Colin O’Donoghue will take on the role of the famous fairytale villain.

O’Donoghue’s credits include The Tudors, Storage 24 and roles on Irish medical drama The Clinic and long-running Soap, Fair City.

Once Upon a Time returns for a second season on September 30th with a slew of new characters and two new series regulars (last season’s guest stars Meghan Ory and Emilie de Ravin) along with an engaging premise which questions what happens to the characters of Storybrooke now that their memories have been restored.

If you haven’s seen it already, here’s that intriguing Comic Con Hook clip.
