Colin is one of two children of Mary and Con O’Donoghue, and was raised in a Roman Catholic manner. After matriculating from Dundalk Grammar School, he enrolled at Dublin’s Gaiety School of Acting, and subsequently made his on-camera acting debut in 2001, when he appeared in an episode of “Rebel Heart” TV mini-series, while in 2002 he starred in the TV movie “Home for Christmas”, for which he was honored with the Irish Film and Television Award as the Best New Talent. These involvements eased Colin O’Donoghue’s dive into the world of acting, and also provided the basis for his current net worth.

In the course of the next several years, Colin honed his acting skills primarily in television series, which included appearances in recurring roles in “Proof”, “Fair City” and “The Clinic”. In 2009 he portrayed the character of Duke Philip of Bavaria in an episode of Showtime’s TV series “The Tudors”, while in 2011 he made his Hollywood debut in the horror drama movie “The Rite”, starring as Michael Kovak opposite Anthony Hopkins. This was followed by an appearance in the critically panned Sci-Fi horror movie “Storage 24”. However, all these ventures helped Colin O’Donoghue to add sums to his net worth.

The real breakthrough in O’Donoghue’s acting career occurred later in 2012, when he was cast for the recurring role of Captain Killian ‘Hook’ Jones in ABC’s hit television fantasy drama series “Once Upon a Time”, in 130 episodes so far through the show’s six seasons. This engagement is currently Colin O’Donoghue’s most notable acting credit, and made a huge impact on his wealth as well as his popularity.

Some of his most recent big screen appearances include the leading male role in the romantic drama movie “The Dust Storm”, as well as staring in the comedy drama film “Carrie Pilby”, both in 2016. Doubtlessly, these endeavors also contributed to Colin O’Donoghue’s net worth.

Additionally, Colin was a member of the Irish musical band The Enemies, in which he served as a guitar player and backing vocalist. They released their eponymous debut album in 2011, before collaborating with General Motors in creating the soundtrack for one of their advertisement campaigns. Besides these, O’Donoghue also appeared in Christina Perri’s music video “The Words”, adding further to his net worth.

When it comes to the personal life of Colin O’Donoghue, he has been married since 2009 to his high school sweetheart Helen, with whom he welcomed a son and a daughter. With his family, Colin resides in Ireland, and is very active on several social media networks on which he is followed by a total of more than 1.7 million fans altogether.

#Quote
1Part of what I like about the best villains in TV and film is when you feel sorry for them, and that makes you feel even worse for feeling guilty about wanting them to succeed, in some way.
2How do you try to play 'Captain Hook' better than, or as well as, Dustin Hoffman? You can't. It's perfection.
3I grew up watching movies and being amazed at the animatronics you'd see in stuff like 'The Dark Crystal,' and all those kinds of movies. So, I'm always enthralled with how they can make it all work, behind the scenes, with the visual effects.
4I was always kind of serious. It's nice to be able to play a complete bad boy who's the polar opposite to who I am.
5When I was younger, I was hopefully going to do animation and special effects.
6People have grown up with Peter Pan, so they're familiar with Captain Hook and they have an opinion about what he should be like. I grew up watching the movie versions. But how do you try to play Captain Hook better than, or as well as, Dustin Hoffman? You can't. It's perfection.
7Not to belittle what we do as actors, but my wife Helen is a teacher, and she makes a real difference to kids. So it's unusual to see people thinking of us as something special.
