POPSUGAR: Hook has changed a lot over the past few seasons. What do you think is his most admirable quality? Colin O'Donoghue: I mean, he’s a different character now. It’s probably that he’s redeemed himself and is trying to be the best person that he can be, which is a difficult thing to do, to overcome those demons for the better of not just himself, but for the better of the woman he loves and her family. However, I did love playing the villainous Hook. It’s always fun to get to play the bad guy.
PS: Hook and Emma are definitely one of the most beloved romances on the show. What is the best part about working with Jennifer Morrison? CO: I’m lucky that Jen and I have got a fantastic relationship. We get on so well and it makes it easy to translate that into the characters. Jen is friendly with my family and my wife and all of that is very important. Sometimes when you come onto a show, you don’t know if that’s going to work or if the chemistry is going to be there, and we just have a laugh. That’s the most important thing is to enjoy what you do. We’re at ease working with each other, because if you have tension with someone, that translates on screen. Luckily, on Once Upon a Time, we get along so well, so it works.
PS: I know the show hasn’t been renewed for another season yet, but what do you think Hook’s happily ever after would look like? CO: Hook’s happily ever after would just be getting an evening or night where both he and Emma can sit down and maybe have dinner or watch TV or have a glass of wine, because in Storybrooke, they literally never get a chance to do anything. As soon as anything slows down, you guarantee Grumpy is going to come running around the corner saying that some sort of curse is coming or there’s a giant snowman attacking the town. I think his happily ever after would just be a week’s worth of peace and quiet where they can be normal people. Maybe we’ll get to see that in the second half! That would be good.
These scenes were so much alike! And I’m glad CS parallel to Snowing also in this because it shows that someone could make a mistake in any time of the relationship, even when it’s based on TL and a healthy foundations of trust.
CS scene didn’t end with a hug like Snowing’s, but at the end of the day we will get that reconciliation hug even if it means we have to wait for it a week or two,
