She has delivered a myriad range of performances but her most remarkable performance to date remains that of Snow White in ‘Once Upon A Time’.

The fans were left believing that there can be no other Snow White better than Ginnifer Goodwin herself.

Ginnifer Goodwin Filmography


Apart from the fantasy series, the talented actress has been a part of many other shows as well. She starred in ‘Big Love’, a drama series on HBO as Margene Heffman. She has appeared in some impressive movies like ‘Mona Lisa Smile’ (2003), ‘He’s Just Not That into You’, a romantic comedy that released in 2009, and ‘Ramona and Beezus’, a family comedy that released in 2010.

There was a lot of buzz in the industry before the release of ‘Something Borrowed’. By the year 2011, romantic-comedy in Hollywood was not doing so great and there were some major flops that surprised many. But it was being speculated that Something Borrowed would change that equation and prove to be one of the biggest hits of Ginnifer’s career.

Observer even wrote before the release of the movie, “Romantic comedy has taken a shellacking lately in a series of stupefying flops, but they didn’t have Ginnifer Goodwin.” Well, sadly, the speculations were not on point.

Many people like to believe that it was the decisions and changes made by the actress in her personal life that decided the fate of her personal life. From marrying her co-star Josh Dallas, the Prince Charming of Once Upon A Time to having kids, there are many explanations for the sudden downfall of the actress in the industry.

Ginnifer Goodwin In RomComs

After starring in ‘He’s Just Not That into You’, Goodwin bagged the role of the lead protagonist – Rachel, in the movie ‘Something Borrowed’. She shared the screen with Kate Hudson, who played the role of Darcy, Rachel’s best friend. The story was based on the novel of the same name, authored by Emily Giffin. The plot of the movie appealed as cliché and quite predictable to the audience. Rachel hooks up with Darcy’s fiancé and when Darcy finds out about her best friend’s betrayal, she decides to end her friendship with Rachel. The movie was supposed to have a sequel with the name ‘Something Blue’, but the poor performance of the movie at the box office canceled that plan.

Ginnifer Goodwin married her co-star Joshua Dallas in 2014. They met on the sets of Once Upon A Time and instantly felt attracted to each other. Though Dallas was married to Lara Pulver at that time and Goodwin was dating Joey Kern. They both soon broke off their relationships with their respective partners and started their own romance with each other. They tied the knots in April 2014 and the couple had two kids by 2016. Yes, Ginnifer Goodwin’s marriage is nothing short of a fairytale romance itself!
While Ginnifer’s personal life flourished effortlessly, the same could not be said about her professional life as an actress.

Ginnifer Goodwin – Theater & Producer

After leaving Once Upon A Time, the actress joined theatre. Something Borrowed had already failed at making money at the box office and her entry into theatre was marked as her departure from Hollywood. Most importantly, this shift in her career did not trouble Goodwin at all. She rather felt more inclined towards theatre and found it much more challenging than movies and series.


Though we loved Ginnifer as Snow White, the actress seems to do better behind the cameras. She produced the TV movie ‘I Am Somebody’s Child: The Regina Louise Story’ and starred as the voice-over artist for the character of Judy in ‘Zootopia’.

While we may not see the actress in the lead roles in any mainstream movie or series, we are sure that Ginnifer Goodwin is absolutely happy and content with whatever she is doing. And we wish her nothing, but the best for all her upcoming endeavors.
