First Look At Ginnifer Goodwin As Jacqueline Kennedy For Killing Kennedy

GInnifer Goodwin Killing Kennedy

First look of Ginnifer Goodwin as First Lady Jacqueline Kennedy on the set of National Geographic Channel’s KILLING KENNEDY, which started production this week in Richmond, Va. Nat Geo will air the television event this November.

Yesterday, we got our first look at Rob Lowe as President John F. Kennedy for National Geographic's adaptation of Bill O'Reilly and Martin Dugard's book Killing Kennedy. At that time, we were wondering when we'd get a peek at Once Upon a Time's Ginnifer Goodwin, who was cast to play the role of First Lady Jacqueline Kennedy in the TV movie set to debut later this year. We didn't have to wait long for it. Nat Geo passed that image along to us today, and you can check it out above.

Like Lowe's photo, there's sort of a portrait quality to Goodwin's, which shows her wearing what appears to be an elegant black dress and diamond earrings. While Lowe is looking down in his photo, Goodwin's has her looking up and outward. Both pictures make us wonder what they're thinking. It's going to be very exciting to see how Goodwin and Lowe tackle their respective iconic roles for this made-for-TV biopic.

Also among the cast is Michelle Trachtenberg, who's playing her first Russion-speaking role as Marina Oswald, the wife to Lee Harvey Oswald, the man who took the life of Kennedy in November of 1963. Production on the TV movie began this month in Richmond, Virginia. Killing Kennedy is directed by Nelson McCorrmick and is expected to air on National Geographic (opens in new tab) in November to coincide with the 50th anniversary of Kennedy's death.
