Just a couple of weeks ago, we learned
that native Memphian, Lausanne Collegiate School alumna
and successful film and TV actress Ginnifer Goodwin had signed on with ABC's "Once Upon a Time" to play a revamped version of Snow White.
Today, in an interview with New York magazine's Chat Room, Goodwin talks about
wrapping up the HBO series "Big Love," and about what led her to continue working on TV with the "Once" pilot:
As we were getting ready to end ["Big Love"], I started reading everything I
could, looking for my next project. I wasn't in a rush to do more TV
because of the grueling schedule, but I found that TV pilots were where
all the brilliant writing was happening. It was the writing that
convinced me to do the pilot I'm working on.
Elsewhere in Ginnifer news, gossip site TMZ.com reported today
that Goodwin has petitioned a court to change her legal name, spelled "Jennifer," to her professional spelling. Reports over the years have said
she adopted the name "Ginnifer" to mimic how her Southern relatives would pronounce her name.
UPDATE: Jennifer Biggs, who watched "Big Love" for its entire run, has some thoughts
on the show's signing-off.
