"I set up a Twitter because I thought that I should set up a Twitter and people were going, 'Oh, I ship you. I ship this.' I was like, 'What does shipping mean?'" Colin told Access Hollywood. Now some fans are shipping Captain Swan, with Colin's Captain Hook and Jennifer Morrison’s Emma Swan.
The Irish actor said he’s surprised by all the attention from his new OUAT fans, dubbed "Hookers" in honor of his sexy Peter Pan character. “My family was sort of — [they] take the mick out of me and think it’s funny, and so does my wife,” Colin told Access. “She's like, 'Have you seen what they’ve said, here, about this, or that and the other,' and I was like, 'No.' I just say, 'Don’t look at it.'" (Yeah, don't look at this!)
