Jennifer Michelle Goodwin, professionally known as Ginnifer Goodwin, was born on May 22 1978, in Memphis, Tennessee to Linda Kantor, a stay-at-home mom who later became a "computer genius," working for big-brand companies like Apple, FedEx and the Smithsonian, and Tim Goodwin, who was a musician that conducted Roy Orbison's band and later opened a recording studio. Her sister, Melissa, is a professional animator in Los Angeles with one of her notable works being Robot Chicken. Ginnifer was raised Jewish, and gave it up at one point, but as an adult embraces Judaism fully.
In fifth grade, she became deeply interested in Romeo and Juliet and described herself as a "Shakespeare nerd" that became devoted to acting throughout school. From studying at Boston University, Ginnifer performed in student films and in college and regional stage productions that earned her the Excellence in Acting: Professional Promise Award by the Bette Davis Foundation. She graduated in 2001 with a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree in acting. She furthered her studies by heading to England and enrolling at Stratford-upon-Avon's Shakespeare Institute to earn an Acting Shakespeare Certificate from London's Royal Academy of Dramatic Art. While in London, she appeared onstage as Joan of Arc, Ophelia in Hamlet and Jessica in The Merchant of Venice.
She made her television debut on the series Law & Order, but had her first recurring television role on Ed in 2001. Her first movie role was Maya in the first Comedy Central original movie Porn 'n Chicken.
