Ali Articles & Interviews, Once Upon A Time Comments Off on Why ABC Is Counting on ‘Once Upon a Time’ Star Ginnifer Goodwin

I came across this great article that was done in October where they ask Ginnifer some questions about herself and thought I would share it so we can learn a little more about her.

After five seasons on HBO’s acclaimed drama Big Love coupled with film roles (Walk the Line, Something Borrowed), Ginnifer Goodwin, 33, is trying her hand at a network drama from Lost producers Edward Kitsis and Adam Horowitz. She plays Snow White and Sister Mary Margaret in the fairy tale saga Once Upon a Time.

My first acting role was … A doll in The Little Engine That Could at Auburndale Elementary in Memphis.

My big break was … My first role from which I could support myself was as an actress on [the NBC series] Ed, but I’d say [2003’s] Mona Lisa Smile was my break. Being a part of that changed everything for me.

I decided to do TV now because … That’s where all the great writers have gone.

My favorite thing about my character is … As Snow White, she’s never self-indulgent enough to let her obstacles discourage her.

My least favorite thing about my character is … Sister Mary Margaret’s emotional journey is so treacherous that it’s very hard for me to tell her story empathetically. I walk home with some residual pain.

The most exciting part about the TV business is … Networks are taking big risks. … I’ve not been as impressed with the [film] scripts that I’ve gotten. The really special ones are few and far between because we’re making fewer movies, and the ones we are making are big and fancy and the storytelling is far less risky. I can’t say it’s as appealing a place to be for me.

The most frustrating part about the TV business is … It’s a double-edged sword because if you’re lucky enough to find yourself in the TV world, you’re committing all of your time for years.

An average day on set lasts … 12 to 14 hours, which is short for me compared to Big Love.

If I could cast my dream guest star, I’d cast … Anyone from Lost, Michael Emerson or Terry O’Quinn.

My favorite TV shows (excluding mine) are … Lost, Pushing Daisies and South Park.

Ali Once Upon A Time Comments Off on ‘Once Upon a Time’ recap: Becoming David Nolan

EW.com’s Shaunna Murphy did a recap of last night’s episode … love her beginning comment about Ginnifer! Shows how talented of an actress Ginny is!

Why do Ginnifer Goodwin’s tears always make me drop my innate snarky cynicism and hug whatever fluffy stuffed animal is waiting nearby? When Margene Heffman had to give up her fledgling jewelry business on Big Love, I was this close to marching over to Utah to teach that no-good Bill Henrickson a lesson myself. I even wanted her to seduce Justin Long in that horrible hot mess He’s Just Not That Into You, which probably makes me insane. I guess what I’m trying to say here is that Goodwin is an impossibly likable actress, so watching her heart break last night was an emotionally troubling experience. I’ve got your number, John Doe David Nolan.

Ali Once Upon A Time Comments Off on Once Upon a Time Bosses on How Lost Influenced Their Fairytale World

Executive producers Adam Horowitz and Edward Kitsis spoke with TV Guide about Once Upon a Time and where the show is headed.

“There’s a curse that needs to be broken, and these characters have had their happy endings ripped from them. Emma [Jennifer Morrison] comes in there trying to help them find their happy endings. Ultimately, the last happy ending is for Emma.”

Before that can happen, Emma, who also just happens to be the daughter of Prince Charming (Josh Dallas) and Snow White (Ginnifer Goodwin), must truly become the hero of the story — a quest the writers find exciting because she was never part of the fairytale canon. “Emma is essentially a new fairytale character,” Kitsis notes. “Emma’s journey is just beginning and it hasn’t been written yet.”

“We’ve heard people discussing: Will [Emma] break the curse? How will she break the curse? When will she break the curse?” Horowitz says. “The curse, in many ways, is the tip of the iceberg. Even if you do know who you are, that doesn’t mean everything immediately comes back to you and you get your happy ending.” Adds Kitsis, “In fact, in a lot of ways, it might just make it worse.”

Unfortunately, this means Prince Charming and Snow White have a long way to go before their tale becomes the love story we know it to be. “Anytime you have a love story on a TV show, it’s always hard to keep them apart,” Kitsis notes. “In fairytale land, we understand that these two belong together. Now, in Storybrooke, these two are separated by [David’s] wife, so they can’t be together. You get to really see that the curse makes good on its promise, which is that it will rip everything you love from your life.”

Getting her parents the happy ending they deserve will be the greatest challenge for Emma. Though she’s gone toe-to-toe with Storybrooke’s mayor Regina, who adopted Henry (Jared Gilmore), the son Emma gave up for adoption 10 years ago, she’ll have to face the ultimate antagonist of the story: Regina’s fairytale counterpart, The Evil Queen. “The Evil Queen is not somebody whose bad side you want to get on, but if anyone can take her on, it’s Emma,” Kitsis says.
