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.

Ali Articles & Interviews, Once Upon A Time Comments Off on Why Is Once Upon a Time Like Buffy? Plus, Just How Evil Is the Evil Queen?

E!Online did an interview with Once Upon A Time’s producer Jane Espenson who shared some of what is to come on the hit series. Here is what she shared in regards to Mary Margaret and Snow White.

If you know anything about us you know we are suckers for TV true loves, so the best thing about Once’s dual stories is twice as much Snow (Ginnifer Goodwin) and Prince Charming (Josh Dallas). Hope you love them as much as we do, because Espenson says we’ll “see various chapters in a fairly long history between them.” And he might look the part of the perfect prince, but Espenson warns: “Forget what you think you know about Prince Charming.” We will soon learn about what family he is a part of—and it won’t be at all what we expect.

And what about that pesky “wife” of the prince’s amnesiac Storybrooke counterpart, David? Will she keep Mary Margaret and him apart? Espenson promises things will get “very complicated and very emotional.”

Also complicated and emotional is Snow’s relationship with the Evil Queen. If there was any ambiguity as to whether Regina remembers her fairy-tale past, Espenson reveals: “Regina knows. She has her memory as the Evil Queen.” Things just got a little more deliciously evil. But if you search in the recesses of your childhood memories, you may remember that before she was the Evil Queen, she was also Snow’s stepmother, and we will soon learn all about the epic fallout that eventually led to Snow hiding in the woods—and a little glass coffin.
