Or was she? “We try not to clip each other’s wings. We give each other the freedom and space to go and pursue things – because I personally don’t see the point of being in a relationship to change someone or to be fearful and try to hold on. Of course, it’s hard when you spend three months apart because of work, but there’s something to be said for being independent entities but great life partners,” Pulver told the Daily Mail back on that fateful September day.
Maybe she had an inkling that her independent husband was stepping out on her? Dallas later tried to play fast and loose with the dates of his separation, alleging that they had already called it quits by the time he had relocated to Vancouver in the summer of 2011. The Daily Mail didn’t report the news until January 4, 2012, long after Dallas claimed that the couple had split.
According to the Daily Mail, Josh’s father is a ballet dancer.
Goodwin was Engaged to Another Kentucky Man
Goodwin also had a Christmas-themed relationship. She was engaged to actor Joey Kern, who popped the question on Christmas Eve. “We couldn’t be happier than to celebrate our engagement over the holidays with our families,” the couple excitedly told People Magazine. The couple had dated for two years before Kern designed an engagement ring himself. They planned to marry in the fall of 2011.
Kern is eerily similar to the man that Goodwin would actually go on to marry. Kern was born and raised in Independence, Kentucky and went to St. Xavier High School in Cincinnati. Dallas was born and raised in Louisville, Kentucky. Like Dallas, Kern studied acting and trained in London. But Kern attended the prestigious Royal Academy of Dramatic Arts in London.
At the time of the engagement, Kern was best known for Super Troopers. The two broke up in September of 2011.
Goodwin and Dallas fell for each other in circumstances as romantic as their characters, while filming a scene from the pilot where Charming must wake up Snow White with a kiss. As in the best fairy tales, things are often a bit messy.
As for their jilted exes, don’t feel too sorry for Kern and Pulver. After their careers stalled a bit, both returned to action. Pulver returned to the stage and won the 2016 Olivier Award (Britain’s version of the Tony Awards) for Best Supporting Actress in a Musical in the West End’s revival of the hit Broadway musical Gypsy. Kern can be seen in TNT’s new show, Good Behavior.
