Yes, thank you everyone. Hopefully, Mr. O’Donoghue will be kind enough to come forward on his own and tell everybody what happened. It’d certainly be wiser for him to do that, than to let the public discuss it on their own. That just starts speculation, which turns into rumors, and I’d really hate to see that happen. It will if he doesn’t nip this in the bud. Given the way people are, I’m almost expecting to start seeing people throwing out things all the way from cancer, to who knows what. I read another site this morning where somebody was talking about Lymes Disease. Based on what? Come on, people! I really don’t want to see this happen to him. He’s the one in control here, though. When answers aren’t given people will try to come up with them on their own, and so an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure.
Well, no, the rumors are perpetuated by fans who immediately start to worry if he is not seen for any prolonged amount of time no matter the fact certain fans starting speculating everything under the sun. It seems that as others have mentioned a little common sense and perspective is needed. He’s never really discussed too much about his working so it would stand to reason that some quiet time could be that he’s spending time with his wife, taking bit of a rest etc.
His business is his own. He should not feel obligated to discuss any more then what he feels comfortable or necessary. I would have thought that fans would be respectful of his wishes, and actually think more positively rather than actually speculating all of the doom-and-gloom which seems to be much too negative. Furthermore, I would hope that they actually want this to be false rather than having their moment of “I called it!” which is disturbing.
You said “Based on what? Come on, people!” and that is exactly that. The onus is on fans of Hook (the ones speculating and are always going “omg is his character dead” etc) to stop and relax. It’s becoming a bit ridiculous that the poor man cannot make simple comments (Hook leaving the building), stay relatively quiet on Twitter without fans starting to spazz out.
If fans hear something about a possible injury or whatnot why not simply first assume it is speculation but instead of spiraling into assuming his character was killed off, he is suffering from something really horrible simply state to him that you heard some rumors, hope they are not true but in the least sending some positiveness since everyone needs some positive vibes sent their way. The way I figure let’s say he did sprain an ankle I think he’d appreciate a “Heard you sprained your ankle, hoping you get better soon, sending some positive thoughts your way” etc.
I feel sorry for him. 😕
