Fans have been mourning the death of Storybrooke’s Sheriff/Huntsman since season one, but it turns out they aren’t the only ones. The cast misses him too and would love to see him return to their fairy tale town.
Dornan of course has been busy playing a billionaire and seducing naive virgins in the upcoming romantic blockbuster “Fifty Shades of Grey.” A few of his “Once Upon a Time” cast mates have seen the trailer and approve of Dornan’s sexy smolder. “Mr. Dornan’s sexy!” gushes Prince Charming actor Josh Dallas to E! Online, “I can’t wait to see the movie. I’ll be the first one there.”
Somehow Jennifer Morrison has yet to see the trailer, despite playing Dornan’s almost-flame before his untimely death at the hands of a jealous Regina (Lana Parilla). Morrison did reveal that she has her fingers crossed there will be some way to bring him back to the show.
“We’re still good friends and obviously he has quite the schedule,” Morrison laments. “But we’re hoping that someday there will be a moment where he’s able to come back and reprise some flashbacks of Sheriff Graham.”
Maybe Morrison is trying to keep her hopes realistic, but Storybrooke is a magical place so surely they can figure out a way to bring the Sheriff back on a more permanent basis (schedule allowing, of course). Plus, with Neil having also bitten the dust this past season there will need to be someone to stir up trouble between Emma and Captain Hook.
“Once Upon a Time” returns Sunday, September 28 at 8 p.m. ET/PT on ABC.
