To say we were upset over the death of Once Upon a Time's Sheriff Graham (Jamie Dornan), whom we once described as "the hottest TV sheriff to ever sheriff," is a bit of an understatement. Seriously, we're still wearing black and listening to Joni Mitchell on repeat. Due to our mourning, talking about Graham's death with the show's star Jennifer Morrison was on the top of our Kristin's to-do list at ABC's TCA party.
So how is Morrison feeling about the loss of the Hot Hipster Sheriff (may he rest in eternal hipster heaven)? Plus, is a new man coming into Emma Swan's life?
"I'm not happy about that, trust me!" Morrison tells us when we bring up (and complain about!) Sheriff Graham's death. "I'm like, 'Please send him back! Please send him back!'"
Morrison had nothing but kind things to say about her former co-star, calling him "a lovely, lovely guy." Also, he's not aware of his own hotness. (We had no idea he was blind!) "Jamie Dornan is one of those guys who has no idea how gorgeous he is," she gushes. "He's crazy in love with his girlfriend and a crazy talent and a great singer and a great actor; just a lovely, lovely human being. It kind of makes you want to throw up a bit, but in all the right ways!"
Though we're still mourning Graham's death, the show and Emma must go on. And what better way than to bring in a new love interest? "They do start to hint at someone who is literally called 'a mysterious stranger' for a long time."
The mysterious stranger will be played by Eion Bailey, whom Morrison calls "a lovely and very talented actor." Like Graham, the mysterious stranger may start buying into Henry's (Jared Gilmore) fairytale theory sooner than the other characters. "I think the mysterious stranger is one of those people who may be a part of that," Morrison teases. "He's going to have some knowledge that some of the other people in town don't have."
