Ovation: Happy Birthday Emily Deschanel.


Several years ago, my folks introduced me to the magical world of Netflix.  They had been enjoying the service for some time, watching old television series and obscure movies via the internet by using their DVD player.  They were excited to share their new found fun with us and introduced us to series like Weeds and Bones.

Once we had a wireless DVD player connected to our television, we were in business.  We started with the very first episode of Bones and watched two episodes every night until we were completely caught up.  I’ve never missed an episode since.

Bones features Emily Deschanel as a highly skilled forensic anthropologist, Dr. Temperance Brennan, who works at the Jeffersonian Institute in Washington, DC and writes novels on the side.  Today is her birthday.

The talented mother of one is a vegan and a committed supporter of animal rights causes.

Over the years, Deschanel’s portrayal of Dr. Brennan has earned her nominations for Satellite Awards, Teen Choice Awards and People’s Choice Awards.

Deschanel has served as co-producer since the start of the FOX show’s third season, and as producer since the middle of the show’s fourth season along with co-star David Boreanaz.

Emily’s younger sister is Zoey Deschanel, star of New Girl.  Emily talked a bit about her sister with Conan O’Brien last week.

Happy Birthday Emily Deschanel!

  1. Could not watch the video, it said “uploader has not made this available in your country”. Just thought you would want to know in case you have other Canadian fans! I have watched Bones from the beginning. I knew I would probably like the show because I loved the books they were created from. If you like to read, you should read them too!


    • I’m so sorry the video doesn’t work for you! Thanks for letting me know.

      That being said, you’re not really missing much. Emily talked a bit about how she and her sister got along as youngsters.

      I’ll investigate the problem.
