ONCE Star Colin O’Donoghue Talks Emma, Hook & Season Four

By on October 8, 2014

Colin O'Donoghue

Go behind the scenes with Colin O’Donoghue of Once Upon a Time with this new video interview, courtesy of our friends at ABC.

O’Donoghue, who plays Hook/Killian on the Disney fantasy series discusses his relationship with Emma (Jennifer Morrison) this season, and speculates as to why the audience supports ‘Captain Swan’ to such a passionate degree.

According to Colin, it’s Hook and Emma’s shared experience as “abandoned” outsiders and thieves that helps form their unique bond.

It’s not going to be all “plain sailing” though according to O’Donoghue, as the “daily life life of Storybrooke” will throw obstacles in the way this season.

But obstacles aside, does Killian truly love Emma? Watch the interview below to hear Colin’s take on that subject, and his comparison of Emma to Milah, his former love.

The Louth born star also discusses what’s ahead for Hook this season in the show’s Frozen-themed storyline.

Once Upon a Time continues Sundays 8/7c on ABC.

    Colin O’Donoghue looks like he’s lost a lot of weight. Is he ok?

      He’s almost certainly fine ☺.

      He and Josh Dallas both started with a personal trainer near the beginning of last season, so he’s been toning up and getting in shape, but it’s been over the course of the last year, so there’s nothing to worry about. It just seems like he lost weight quickly because there are time gaps where we don’t see a lot of him.

    Can you correct your article. Colin was not born in Dublin he was born In Drogheda, Also it’s Milah not Mila

      Drogheda’s only a stone’s throw from Dublin … but we’ll correct it because you asked so nicely.

    Thank you so so much for this!! Colin is such an incredibly gifted actor – I’m eternally grateful to the once casting department and to Adam and Eddy. I wouldn’t love Killian as much if Colin didn’t bring him to life so perfectly.
    Thank you again – love hearing Colin talk about Killian and Emma and Killian. This season has been I credible so far. Still not over the perfection that was White Out.
