Ginnifer Goodwin talks 'Once Upon A Time' season 3: 5 questions
Newly engaged Ginnifer Goodwin stopped by for an interview with OTRC.com recently and chatted with correspondent Tony Cabrera.
The actress talked a lot about what's in store for season 3 of the fairy tale series, doing archery on set, what audiences will see this season in terms of relationships on the show and her role as former First Lady Jacqueline Kennedy in the television movie "Killing Kennedy."
Goodwin also took the time to answer a few fan questions about her "Once Upon A Time" character and the show itself.
Check out five questions from the interview below and for extended answers, be sure to watch video from Goodwin's interview above.
1. Now that you are nine episodes into filming season 3, how is it going?
"This is my favorite season. It's my favorite experience, my favorite like, period sort of thematically in terms of the storytelling. It feels very much like the pilot to me," Goodwin said.
She later added, "I mean I loved, truly, sincerely, every episode of this show, but what I signed on for in the pilot tonally, in terms of what characters are involved and what our, you know sort of goals are, our obstacles, are sort of reminiscent."
2. How much deeper are we going to get into these characters as the season progresses?
"What's really amazing is that, you know, the thing about Neverland is, as it is thematically youthful, we are all sort of stuck in who we used to be and analyzing that," Goodwin said. "Because we're all in one place, we're all having to work together toward the same goal, we have a lot of time to sit and have these conversations and really investigate and analyze these relationships."
Twitter fan questions
3. @KennadieShaygne asked, "Do you prefer the kick-ass or the simpler girl? (Snow vs. MMB) Or do you enjoy the diversity of the two?"
"Oh, Snow White, hands down. Like, no offense to Mary Margaret, but she really gets on my nerves sometimes," Goodwin said. "Until this season, she's been a bit of a doormat, but there are things about Snow White too that I find to be intolerable, in terms of her forgiving people again and again and again and again and again and again, which gets a little bit crazy, but in general I would say Snow White is just so much more fun to play."
4. @foreignlolly asked, "Did all the camping supplies we've seen in Neverland come from Snow's backpack? It looks resourceful!"
"That was my idea," Goodwin said with a smile when asked about Snow's backpack.
"Last season, I was so cold all the time 'cause I was in that horrid fuchsia sweater for nine episodes in the woods and I was like, 'Why didn't I bring anything with me when I jumped into the portal,'" she added. "So, when I knew we were going into a portal at the end of last season, I begged costumes for a backpack and I didn't exactly ask permission from anybody else, but I made sure that I packed the backpack in the back of a scene just so nobody could nail me on having not packed the thing."
5. @foreignlolly also asked, "Is it a conscious choice from other characters to still refer to Snow White as Mary Margaret?"
"It is. To be honest, I haven't been let in on the entire reasoning behind it," Goodwin said. "I mean, there are some clues they've given me here and there about why they make the choices that they do, but they were sure because we thought it was a mistake, our first episode back from the curse breaking, that we were still being called by our Storybrooke names and that some people were being called their fairytale names, but everything has a reason with these guys [the series creators Edward Kitsis and Adam Horowitz.]"
