Produced by Scott Free Productions and based on the best-selling book by Bill O’Reilly and Martin Dugard, National Geographic Channel’s Killing Kennedy chronicles the build-up to one of America’s most shocking events – the assassination of President John F. Kennedy by Lee Harvey Oswald. In 1959, two men faced major turning points in their lives, one in Washington, D.C., preparing to announce his presidential candidacy, and the other at the U.S. Embassy in Moscow, renouncing his American citizenship. This film charts the highs and lows of those two men, eventually intersecting with two shocking deaths that stunned a nation. It stars Rob Lowe as President John F. Kennedy and Will Rothhaar as Lee Harvey Oswald, with Ginnifer Goodwin as Jacqueline Kennedy and Michelle Trachtenberg as Marina Oswald.
During this recent exclusive phone interview with Collider, actress Ginnifer Goodwin talked about why she’s avoided playing Jackie Kennedy until now, her desire to show the private side of the woman, whether it was more daunting to play part of one of the most famous couples in literature (with Snow White and Prince Charming) or one of the most famous couples in American history (with the Kennedys), what a dream Rob Lowe was to work with, what it was like to see herself in the famous pink suit and hat, and the most emotional moment on set. She also talked about how much she’s enjoyed being a part of her ABC television series Once Upon a Time for the last three seasons. Check out what she had to say after the jump.
