Biography

A Shakespearean-trained actress, Ginnifer Goodwin made a name for herself on some of television's more unusual and creative series. Goodwin was barely out of her teens when she landed a supporting role as a wry, intellectual high school student on the quirky small-town comedy "Ed" (NBC, 2000-04), while appearing in major features like "Mona Lisa Smile" (2003) and "Win a Date with Ted Hamilton!" (2004). After appearing as spurned first wife of Johnny Cash in the biopic "Walk the Line" (2005), Goodwin scored a leading role on the highly acclaimed series "Big Love" (HBO, 2006-2011), where she played the youngest of three sister wives in a polygamist family. Meanwhile, her big-screen breakthrough came in the form of the romantic comedy "He's Just Not That Into You" (2009), which showcased the actress' appealing blend of brains and indie-girl cuteness, while leading to prominent supporting roles in "A Single Man" (2009) and "Something Borrowed" (2011). With her heralded portrayal of Snow White on the hybrid fantasy "Once Upon a Time" (ABC, 2011- ), Goodwin was firmly established as a new contender to the America's Sweetheart throne once held by the likes of Drew Barrymore and Jennifer Aniston.
