"They’re both thieves and they’ve come from troubled pasts and they’ve both lost a true love, so I think that there’s a lot that they recognize in each other," Jennifer said. "So there’s that camaraderie and also the combativeness of that, right away."
Colin O’Donoghue agrees that a strong woman who says what she wants is the type of gal that Hook goes for. He likes that back and forth. "I would like to see how somebody like Hook could be if they were to go that way in a relationship with someone,” Colin told the Huffington Post. “Because he’s lost this love and it’s very difficult when you’ve lost that type of love to want to have it back again. When revenge is such a big part of [his journey], I’d be interested to see how that might work."
Jennifer isn’t taking sides yet. Her character has plenty of options out there, and she just wants to see Emma have some romance in her life, however and wherever she finds it: “It’s been a while!”
