Ginnifer Goodwin had quite the challenge this season on Once Upon A Time. Not only did she star on the series, but she played two very distinct roles. In the fairy tale world, she played Snow White, and she also played the character of Mary Margaret in the real world. Both are technically the same woman, but Mary Margaret had no idea of that until Emma Swan broke the curse in the season finale.
Goodwin spoke about the series and being able to play these two very distinct characters on it recently. She said the following, according to Variety:
"It was a brand new kind of challenge for me to create what I think of as two sides of one coin. It's interesting to play characters that the public think of as being black and white. The challenge that we're presented with is to make them gray, relatable and flawed. I didn't want Snow White to be the cliched fairy-tale princess, or a victim. I realized [Mary Margaret] couldn't be a photographic negative of Snow White. She had to have all the qualities of someone that the Evil Queen would want to watch suffer."
There is buzz that Goodwin might earn herself an Emmy nomination for this series. Early buzz also said the same for Robert Carlyle and his portrayal of Rumpelstiltskin and Mr. Gold. Goodwin has been a joy to watch on this season. She has added something to the portrayal of Snow White with her performance. She showed that the character is made up of tougher stuff than the Disney version showed.
In Once Upon A Time season 2, fans can expect a lot more to happen now that Snow White has her memories back in the world. The battle between Snow and the Evil Queen, played by Lana Parrilla, is just getting started.
What do you think? Is Ginnifer Goodwin deserving of an Emmy nomination?
