Philip Glenister, who played the maverick officer in the franchise, has enjoyed much attention from female fans.
Graham told The Guardian: "I'm still amazed that girls find it romantic, this big hulking bloke in a dated suit, that there could be anything even closely resembling a sex symbol. I find that baffling. It's great but I just don't understand it."
He also ruled out any further television or film appearances from Hunt, unless "Hollywood came calling".
