Mrs Carter: Art imitating life?
‘Once Upon A Time’ characters Snow White and Prince Charming are star crossed lovers that against all odds found one another, but after the evil queen casts a nasty spell on everyone in the fairytale land, Snow White and the Prince are ripped apart – can they find their way back to one another?
In real life the actors that play Snow White and Prince Charming, Ginnifer Goodwin and Josh Dallas, have been secretly dating since the fall as reported by US Weekly, but it looks like the pair are ready to take their romance public now.
The pair walked the red carpet together for the first time as a couple on Friday at Paul and Stella McCartney’s premiere party for the ‘My Valentine’ music video premiere in West Hollywood. An eyewitness said; “They were cute, but not overtly affectionate. They were standing shoulder to shoulder though and talking low and leaning in to each other smiling.”
Later in the evening another insider saw Ginnifer and Josh slow dancing at the party to ‘The Ink Spots’ track ‘I Don’t Want to Set the World on Fire’. They said; “It was a very cute moment, as the couple seemed to lose track of the fact that they were not the only people in the room.”
While sometimes a relationship on set can cause friction amongst the other cast members, Raphael Sbarge who plays Jiminy Cricket on the ABC series said that the affection they share on screen is genuine and that they are “so lovely”. He said; “There’s such genuine affection, which you can see on screen. You can see how they just interact with each other. It’s genuine.”
On set romances can be tricky, especially when the two characters are ‘in love’. What if the relationship doesn’t last? Will they still be able to show the same passion that fans are used to seeing? Kaley Cuoco and Johnny Galecki from ‘The Big Bang Theory’ dated for 2 years in secret – in fact no one knew that they dated until after they broke up and when you watch the show the relationship between their characters is still just as strong as it was. Dexter stars Jennifer Carpenter and Michael C. Hall fell in love on set and later married, and even after their marriage fell apart, they were able to keep their personal and work lives separate. Past on set romances have shown that it’s possible that to still be able to work together if the relationship ends and bring their ‘A’ game to set, so don’t worry ‘Once Upon A Time’ fans – if it doesn’t end in a fairy tale wedding, the show will still go on.
