Once Upon a Time

Ginnifer Goodwin: OUAT Characters Are “Role Models I Want for My Future Daughters”

As you know, Once Upon a Time's Ginnifer Goodwin (Mary Margaret/Snow White) and Josh Dallas (David/Prince Charming) are on the magical new cover of Entertainment Weekly.

The adorable couple talked to EW in a new 2-minute video, dressed as their "Fairybrooke" — as Ginny put it — characters. They are now inhabiting both their Storybrooke and Fairytale Land characters, which Charming noted in his big speech on Season 2, Episode 2: “We Are Both.”

Ginny said she's been getting stopped more as Snow White than she ever has as Ginnifer Goodwin. They like how OUAT is showing a different, flawed, relatable side to famous characters we all grew up thinking we knew. "And the women are so empowered on our show, and evolved and ahead of their, sort of, medieval times," Ginny said. "I know it's appealing to me as a woman. These characters are the kinds of role models I would want for my future daughters."

Yeah, it’s kind of amazing that this show about fairy princesses has become such a benchmark for powerful female characters. Who could’ve imagined that last year? And maybe it will prompt a new generation of little girls to want to be like Ginny’s badass Snow White as opposed to the passive chick who warbled her way through the Disney cartoon.

Catch the next new episode of Once Upon a Time on Sunday, October 21 at 8 p.m. ET/PT on ABC.
