SAN DIEGO -- After this first season of "Once Upon a Time," we learned that Charming -- aka David, aka actor Josh Dallas -- is a fighter. Or at least, "he fights for what he wants," according to HitFix's interview with Dallas at San Diego Comic-Con this year.

That fighting spirit will increasingly be aimed at Regina (played by Lana Parrilla), the actor admitted during the chat. "Charming's angry. Regina's gonna have to watch out."

Does he share any similarities to his character when he's off-screen?

"I would like to be like Charming in real life in a lot of ways and not be David in a lot of way," the actor told us of his affinity for his character. 

Check out the full interview above with Dallas, on how fans will be seeing more backstories of their favorite Storybrooke characters, including his and Snow's. "Once Upon a Time" returns to ABC for season 2 this fall.
