In his first on-camera TV role since wrapping his
seven- six-season run as Once Upon a Time’s Killian Jones aka Captain Hook, O’Donoghue will headline an episode of the streamer’s forthcoming Dolly Parton-themed anthology series, Heartstrings, which dramatizes the stories behind some of the music icon’s most memorable songs.
Specifically, the Irishman will appear in the “JJ Sneed”-inspired episode, playing the titular outlaw.
