Biografie von Jennifer Morrison

, als Tochter von zwei Lehrern im ländlichen Illinois großgeworden, träumte schon immer von einem Leben, das alles andere als gewöhnlich sein sollte. Bereits als kleines Mädchen arbeitete sie als Kindermodel und landete so in einer Welt, von der ihre Mitschülerinnen nur träumen konnten. Als Zehnjährige erregte sie erstmals große Aufmerksamkeit, als sie an der Seite des berühmten Basketballspielers auf dem Cover der "Sports Illustrated for Kids" erschien.

Wie alles begann

Ihr Weg war nun geebnet. Jennifer Morrison schaffte es vom Kindermodel zur angehenden Schauspielerin. Ihr Filmdebüt gab die mal blonde, mal brünette Mimin Mitte der neunziger Jahre als Filmtochter von und in "Begegnungen – Intersection". Doch nicht nur Hollywood empfing die Jungschauspielerin mit offenen Armen, auch in beliebten Serien sicherte sich Jennifer Morrison zu dieser Zeit erste Rollen. So spielte sie in zwei Episoden der erfolgreichen Teenie-Serie "Dawsons Creek" und hatte einen kleinen Auftritt in "Ein Hauch von Himmel". Im Jahr 2000 übernahm sie im Horrorfilm "Düstere Legenden 2" ihre erste Hauptrolle auf der Kinoleinwand.

Aufstrebende Schauspielkarriere und erfolgreiches Studium

Und als hätte die mittlerweile junge Frau mit ihrem Beruf noch nicht genug um die Ohren, studierte Jennifer Morrison nebenbei noch Englisch und Theaterwissenschaften und schloss ihr Studium in einer Rekordzeit von nur drei Jahren erfolgreich ab. Anschließend trat sie der legendären "Steppenwolf Theatre Group" in Chicago bei und erlernte ihr schauspielerisches Handwerk.

Jennifer Morrison wird zum gefeierten Serienstar

Kein Wunder also, dass ihr nur kurze Zeit später der internationale Durchbruch gelang. Von 2004 bis 2010 verkörperte sie die Figur der der Dr. Allison Cameron in der überaus erfolgreichen Serie "Dr. House". Nach dem Ende der Show folgten einige Filme, darunter "Mr. & Mrs. Smith" an der Seite von Stars wie und und das Hollywoodspektakel "Star Trek", ehe sich Jennifer Morrison wieder vermehrt dem Serienbusiness zuwandte. Sie war als als Zoey Pierson in der sechsten Staffel der beliebten Sitcom "How I Met Your Mother" zu sehen und zählte ab 2011 als Hauptdarstellerin zum Cast der märchenhaften Serie "Once Upon a Time – Es war einmal …". Sechs Jahre verkörperte sie die Rolle der Emma Swan, die in eine Welt voller Märchenfiguren landet und Figuren wie Schneewittchen oder Rumpelstilzchen begegnet, ehe sie im Mai 2017 ihren Ausstieg bekannt gab. Ein Schock für alle Fans, doch bei der Karriere, die Jennifer Morrison bisher hingelegt hat, sind wir uns sicher, dass sie so schnell nicht von der Bildfläche verschwinden wird.

It has been so scary and heart breaking to watch as friends and people near in LA have been losing their homes to the fires. Riawna has been someone very close to me for nearly ten years now. She has a heart of gold. There are so many people and causes in need, so please don't feel pressure here, but every little bit helps. If you feel genuinely moved to join me in contributing to helping this family try to get back on their feet, all the little bits add up. My heart is with everyone impacted by the fires. I am hoping and praying for the winds to stop so that the fires can be contained and more homes can be protected. #LAfire #hope #support #friendship

I am day late on this because I was traveling all day yesterday... but it is never too late to help. Please join me in supporting this foundation... This #GivingTuesday please be a part of the cure and give the gift of life to young children born with Batten CLN6—a rare and fatal disease. Recently, donors like you have privately funded a gene therapy treatment that has the potential to save the life of every child born with this disease. So far, seven children, including the two darling girls pictured here, Charlotte & Gwenyth Gray have been treated through this FDA approved trial. The Charlotte & Gwenyth Gray Foundation is in a race against time. They need to raise $800,000 before the end of the year in order to enroll six other terminally ill children in this trial. Please join me in giving these young children the gift of a long life and support @curebatten by making a donation online at www.curebatten.org/donate today. #curebatten

Every once in a while, a very special thing comes along. The film, JANE, directed by Brett Morgan is one of those special things. Jane Goodall is a personal hero and an outstanding example of tenacity and integrity that I find especially inspiring as a woman. One person really can make a difference and Jane Goodall is proof. Please go see the film JANE as soon as possible. I promise you won't regret it. #Jane #janegoodall

As I reached the end of my 6 year contract on ONCE UPON A TIME, I was faced with a significant decision. ABC, Eddy Kitsis, and Adam Horowitz very generously invited me to continue as a series regular. After very careful consideration, I have decided that creatively and personally, it is time for me to move on. Emma Swan is one my favorite characters that I have ever played. My 6 years on ONCE UPON A TIME has changed my life in the most beautiful ways. I am absolutely blown away by the passion and commitment of the Oncer fans. I am so honored to have been a central part of such a special show. I will be forever grateful to Adam, Eddy, and ABC for giving me the gift of playing Emma Swan. As I move on to other creative endeavors, I will continue to attend the fan conventions whenever my professional schedule allows. I always look forward meeting the fans. If ABC Network does in fact order a season 7, I have agreed to appear in one episode, and I will most certainly continue to watch ONCE UPON A TIME. The creativity of the show runners has always inspired me, and I cannot wait to see the ways that they continue to develop and reinvent the show. #Onceuponatime #EmmaSwan #UglyDucklings @jenmorrisonlive Once Upon a Time
