Unlike fellow actress Emma Watson, who waited until Harry Potter
filming was over to chop her hair, Goodwin asserted her right to do what she pleases with her locks — legally. The Big Love
actress admitted to having a "wig clause" put into each of her contracts, saying of her punk-rock-inspired pixie, "It didn't take any courage. It purely took getting permission from HBO and the folks behind Big Love
. They owned every hair on my head! … I find it hard to express myself when I'm growing out a very bad character haircut. As long as I can wear a wig, I can be any character and in real life I can be myself."
