Jamie Dornan has cast quite the spell on us. Though he doesn’t play Prince Charming, the “Once Upon a Time” actor boasts rugged good looks and a dashing on-screen demeanor that have already won us over—and earned him this week’s Hump Day Hottie honor!
Check out this dreamy photo of Jamie and keep reading for more details about him!
Vital stats: This 29-year-old hails from Belfast, Ireland. He played rugby while in school, but show business called and he answered.
“I’m honestly—if you could see me I’m crying from happiness,” he told Hollywood Crush about being this week’s Hump Day Hottie, but he admitted to not having much game when it comes to the ladies. “I run away. I promise you. I’m very nervous in that world. Do guys actually use [pick-up lines]? Isn’t that just in movies?”
Jamie loves to go bowling on dates, but adds that, “I’ve been on really bad dates.” We’re hoping things will turn around soon. In fact, we’d be willing to help “strike” up some better dating experiences.
Where you might have already seen him: Aside from campaigns for Calvin Klein, Dior and Armani, he’s appeared in film projects such as “Marie Antoinette,” where he played the aristocrat Axel von Fersen who hit it with Marie herself. Lucky gal!
Why you should take notice of him now: He stars as Storybrooke’s authority figure, Sheriff Graham, on ABC’s new fairytale-themed drama, “Once Upon a Time.” It’s full of the characters we know and love from all the fables we know and love and we wanted to know what fairytale is Jamie’s favorite.
“I like Robin Hood,” he said. “He was kind of real for all we know, so I like the embellished version of Robin Hood. The Disney cartoon where Robin Hood is a fox is my favorite, maybe my favorite film of all time.”
A foxy answer from a foxy guy. (Yes, we went there…)
Until next week, when we choose another Hump Day Hottie, you can salute Jamie by gawking at his photo above!
