We saw Graham die — or should I say (cue Twilight Zone music) we saw him appear to die — at the end of episode 7. That doesn’t mean that Jamie Dornan, the actor who played Graham and the Huntsman, is off the show for good.
Even if Graham is really dead (despite my hopes for post-hiatus CPR administered by Dr. Whale and Mr. Gold), there’s always the Huntsman, whose fairytale story may not be over.
This evening, in a tweet, Jamie Dornan seemed to confirm that he will be back. While he didn’t say that exactly, I think he left little room for doubt:
Thank you all for your kind words! Don’t stop watching #onceuponatime . As I’ve said before. ANYTHING can happen in fairytale land ! X
Also, as many people have pointed out, his IMDB page lists him in 21 episodes. (Edited to add 9/9/12: Now his IMDB page is showing only the eight episodes he was in during Season 1. Hmmm ….)
Edited to add 3/12/13: We now have the answer — see this.
