Jennifer Morrison: It's That Human Nature Thing

Posted: Updated:

You know Jennifer Morrison from "Once Upon A Time" -- she plays Snow White's daughter.  But here are some things you may not have known about her: Her father, David Morrison, won the Illinois state 2003 teacher of the year award.

She played clarinet in high school marching and symphonic bands, and sang in her high school choir.

And she appeared on the cover of Sports Illustrated for Kids with Michael Jordan when she was 11 years old.

Enough trivia.  Now, Jennifer is co-starring with Adam Brody in the new film "Some Girls."  She joins Steve Edwards and Maria Sansone on Good Day L.A.

Fun facts about Jennifer:

  • Morrison started her career as a child model, appearing in print advertisements for JCPenney and Montgomery Ward and commercials for Rice Krispies and Mondo. In May 1992, she was featured on the cover of Sports Illustrated for Kids with basketball star Michael Jordan.
  • She attended Loyola University Chicago where she majored in Theatre and minored in English, graduating in 2000. She studied with the Steppenwolf Theatre Company before moving to Los Angeles to pursue a career in film and television.
  • She made her film debut at the age of fifteen as the daughter of Richard Gere and Sharon Stone in the 1994 film Intersection, and later appeared as Samantha in Stir of Echoes with Kevin Bacon in 1999. Her first leading role came in the 2000 film Urban Legends: Final Cut, and she has since gone on to appear in films including Grind with Adam Brody, Surviving Christmas with Ben Affleck and James Gandolfini, and Mr. & Mrs. Smith with Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie in 2003, 2004 and 2005, respectively.
