Jamie Dornan’s (Sheriff Graham) return to Once Upon a Time on Season 2, Episode 17: "Welcome to Storybrooke" was far too brief. We loved seeing him back in action — even if he was under Regina’s (Lana Parrilla) thumb the whole time — but we’re already mourning his renewed absence.
While we can’t force the show to bring Jamie back for good — if only we could! — we can ease the pain of his departure with the final installment of our interview with him, in which he weighs in on Emma’s (Jennifer Morrison) complicated love life.
Wetpaint Entertainment: You played Emma’s first love interest, but that tragically didn’t work out. This season a couple of new characters have been introduced as possible love connections for her, including Hook and Neal/Baelfire. Who do you, personally, think she belongs with?
Jamie Dornan: I’m still pretty upset that she got over Graham so quickly! You know, I thought we had a couple of nice moments. I died in her arms. You’d think that she’d need a long spell off guys, but she jumped straight back into the saddle.
Because I live in London and we’re behind [on the airing of OUAT], it’s hard for me. I don’t know the full details of all the other relationships, if I’m honest. So it’s quite hard for me to answer the question. She should just stay in and just look at pictures of Graham and wish that I was still around and not hook up with anyone else!
There are plenty of fans who wish that you could come back to life and woo her again.
Yep. Well, stranger things have happened!
