Captain hook and jake coloring pages

Hook did not appear in early drafts of the play, wherein the capricious and coercive Peter Pan was closest to a “villain” but was created for a front-cloth scene depicting the children’s journey home. Later, Barrie expanded the scene, on the premise that children were fascinated by pirates, and expanded the role of the captain as the play developed. The character was originally cast to be played by Dorothea Baird, the actress playing Mary Darling, but Gerald du Maurier, already playing George Darling (and the brother of Sylvia Llewelyn Davies), persuaded Barrie to let him take the additional role instead, a casting tradition since replicated in many stage and film productions of the Peter Pan story.
