Colin O'Donoghue

Colin O'Donoghue   Born 26 January 1981  Actor/Musician

Another special request. Colin's wanted by many.


This strikingly handsome Irish actor with alluring blue eyes is well-known in his native Ireland.  Born in Drogheda, County Louth, Colin had decided he wanted to be an actor at an early age.  Also spending a year in Paris so he could learn French.

You may have also seen him in The Tudors, season 3, as well as The Rite, a horror movie with Sir Anthony Hopkins, where he played a priest.  It's Hail Mary's all round then for thinking he's looks rather beguiling!  As well as another horror film, Storage 24.   He won an Irish Film and Television Award for Best New Talent in November 2003 for his role in Home For Christmas.  As well as treading the boards in theatre.  A perquisite for walking the plank, er, I mean for captaining a ship in his future role!


Colin also played guitar and sang in a  band called The Enemies which was formed in 2003, however he had to leave this due to his filming commitments.  This was in a show that would propel him onto every woman's (and some men's) radar as roguish pirate Killian Jones/Captain Hook in Once Upon A Time.


Colin's gorgeous looks stood him well in the part as he immediately built up an increasing fanbase and appeared in almost every episode, barring a few in season 2, as well as appearing in season 3.  To die for in leather and exuding mass sex appeal with his one liners and caddish innuendos, he's breaking hearts on and off screen.  Not to mention bringing back guyliner in a huge way.  It's okay to wear make-up, as he cuts a dashing figure, hook'n'all.  Though he's a little more swash and less buckle as he usually ends up kissing floors in this show, whereas he should be kissing the heroines.

Hearts are all aflutter when he's on screen...one actor who will grace our screen desires and viewing pleasure for a long time to come!
