Goodwin most recently appeared on ABC's Once Upon a Time in which she played the role of Mary Margaret/Snow White. She departed the series last year after six years in the role. 

Her exit came right before the show rebooted and changed the location to Hyperion Heights and skipped ahead multiple years.

It's still unclear at this stage whether Goodwin will return to Once Upon a Time for any of the remaining episodes of the series. 

It was canceled a few weeks ago after the show sunk to record lows in its new Friday timeslot.
