  • Quotes

    • Josh Dallas: I think I am a sappy romantic! I certainly believe in love and believe in romance. Yeah, why not! I think it would be pretty awful not to!

    • Josh Dallas: (About fan reaction in Twitter) I'm kinda new to the whole Twitter thing but it's amazing to hear that instant feedback from people even while the show [Once Upon A Time] is on and while they're watching it they're tweeting and saying how much they're enjoying it. We love our viewers!

    • Josh Dallas: (About his character of Prince Charming in Once Upon A Time) Prince Charming just happens to be a name. He's still a man with the same emotions as any other man. He's a Prince, but he's a Prince of the people. He gets his hands dirty. He's got a kingdom to run. He has a family to protect. He has an epic, epic love for Snow White. He's like everybody else. He's human.

    • Josh Dallas: (About the characters he plays in Once Upon A Time) I think essentially they are the same person, they are the same person with different experiences, which makes them different. So I do them the same but they are different. Prince Charming has bravado, he is confident, he is put together, he is able to make decisions. David in Storybrook is lost, he is a lost man, he is confused, he is trying to put together fragments of a life that he doesn't remember, so it makes him unconfident. They are the same but opposites. As an actor it is a joy to be able to do something like that.

    • Josh Dallas: (About Ginnifer Goodwin, his co-star in Once Upon A Time)I didn't meet Ginnifer until our first day shooting the pilot, so we lucked out. I couldn't ask for anyone better to work opposite every day. Not only is she beautiful and talented she is a beautiful soul and it's great to have her as my Snow White for sure. She takes me to school everyday and I learn so much from her and I think it's a great partnership.

    • Josh Dallas: (About Once Upon A Time)I love all the fairy tale land stuff. It's always great fun. It's a boys dream to be able to do this kind of stuff. Get a sword and ride horses and fight trolls and dragons.

    • Josh Dallas: (About working with Anthony Hopkins) I think that a lot of the time actors have something that they have for free and something they don't have to work at. Tony definitely has that status.

    • Josh Dallas: (About his character in Thor) Fandral the dashing, I think he would like to think of himself. A philanderer. Fandral is a fun-loving guy. He's a ladies man. It's always debatable how successful he is at that. He thinks he's pretty successful. He thinks that all the ladies love him and, if they don't, then they will soon come around to the idea of loving him. He's fiercely loyal to Thor and the Warriors Three. They look out for each other. They would rather have a good time, but if he's gotta fight, he'll fight. He's a great character to play.
