Big Love co-star Ginnifer Goodwin has been tapped for a lead role in ABC’s drama pilot Once Upon a Time. The project, from Lost executive producers Edward Kitsis and Adam Horowitz, centers on a woman with a troubled past who is drawn into a small town in Maine where the magic and mystery of Fairy Tales just may be real. Goodwin will play Snow White/Sister Mary Margaret, a beautiful woman with dark hair and very pale skin who has been placed under a wicked spell by the Evil Queen (Lana Parrilla), and is brought back from a living death by Prince Charming. WME-repped Goodwin has been busy in features lately with He’s Just Not That Into You, A Single Man and the upcoming Something Borrowed.
