If you’re among the Once Upon a Time fans who simply cannot wait to see Mary Margaret and David — who are now aware of their true identities of Snow White and Prince Charming — reunite with daughter Emma, rest assured that Ginnifer Goodwin is counting the minutes with you.
“Oh my gosh, honestly, it’s the thing I’m most excited for,” Goodwin shared with TVLine at the Young Hollywood Awards, where she was named this year’s Style Icon. “I can’t wait to develop the relationship between parent and child (played by Jennifer Morrison) — especially now that we’re all the same age.”
Yet with just two weeks left until cast and crew report back to Vancouver to prep for Season 2 of the ABC hit, Goodwin has not yet gotten wind of how that family reunion will go. Though she does have her theories.
“It’s the creators’ choice and Jennifer Morrison’s choice, but I would assume that there would be some kind of resentment there on the part of our daughter because of what she went through after we gave her up,” Goodwin offered, alluding to Emma’s time in the foster system. “I’m anxious to explore that.”
Goodwin said she is also curious to explore life beyond the Storybrooke town line, if the lifting of the dark curse indeed allows for that — “especially if it meant that we could shoot an episode in Hawaii!”
