You may have seen her in the award winning HBO show Big Love or she may be a current weekly fixture in your house via Once Upon a Time on ABC. Either way chances are you’ve seen Ginnifer Goodwin somewhere. At the Tinkerbell and the Legend of the Neverbeast we had a chance to sit down with her and chat a bit. About the film, pregnancy, and being a mother. When we walked in I was immediately taken with her. She has such a calming effect and boy oh boy is she beautiful. Check out some of the interview below!
Q: Do you feel this is different than other voice over work you have done?
Ginnifer: So different. I didn’t realize it was so different. I hadn’t tackled a character this large. (Laughing) It ended up that I had always been relying so much on how I express myself physically which I never realized. So when we started over and tried new things I had to find a way to put everything in my voice and take out some of the qualities that tonally don’t match who Fawn is – at least in my ear when I hear it back. And find a way to stay really connected and really grounded and emotional while still being much larger than life.”
Q: Is there something that you did in the sound booth to stay in character?
Ginnifer: So yes, when Fawn is jumping around like a monkey I was jumping around. (Laughing) That being said I’m super pregnant for a couple of sessions. And was told I had to stay off my feet. But I really still wanted to come to work. So I came in and everybody was giggling and they took me into the sound booth and they had set up a bed covered in Disney stuffed animals. So I did some sessions that way.
Q: Talking about balance, how is it being a mother now and finding that balance?
Ginnifer: It’s funny because I always thought that acting was creative. Then I had a kid and now I’m like walking up to strangers in Starbucks that have like their kids hanging on them and I’m like I wanna give you an Oscar! I don’t know how people do it and work. It’s so hard. But I happen to have a job where my bosses are incredibly supportive and sympathetic to my having not slept since like May. They let me turn a trailer into a nursery and have my kid with me at all times while I was breastfeeding and working insane hours. I’ve learned a lot about the differences, how different countries treat their mothers in terms of supporting them during their postpartum period. And especially in helping them with child-rearing.
As a mom, it’s always great to hear that the stars struggle with trying to find balance in their life just as we do! Ginnifer is amazing as Fawn so head to your local store or even hop on over to Amazon. Tinker Bell and the Legend of the NeverBeast is out on Blu-ray, Digital HD and Disney Movies Anywhere!
