A Chicago native born in 1979, Jennifer Morrison rose to fame as young Dr. Allison Cameron for five seasons on the critically acclaimed FOX medical drama House.  And now, her birthing of young James T. Kirk as his mother Winona, while her husband and world are destroyed all about her, is one of the most memorable openings in recent cinema.

 A string of films and TV guest roles were capped by her casting on House, and now her role as Emma Swan is currently aboard the new genre hit, ABC’s Once Upon a Time. She also appeared in Mr. and Mrs. Smith and Warrior, and spent half a season on CBS’s sitcom How I Met Your Mother as Zoey Pierson.
