Emily Deschanel - who? This would have been an accepted reaction about 7 years ago. Though she made her debut in feature films in 1994 in It Could Happen To You, she has become a recognized voice and face ever since she began to feature in the Fox TV comedy-crime series, Bones. Her anthropologist role in Bones,which has 5 different award nominations from 2006 to 2012, has been the skeleton of her success framework. Starting slow in her career, Ms.Deschanel has definitely learnt a lot from her elaborate filmography. Though she was hardly known before Bones, she has a filmography of 16 movies/television shows before that. That number has increased by 7 more since Bones. She also produces documentary films especially on animal welfare which she passionately propagates. My child is a monkey and How I became an elephant are examples of such documentaries. Having come from a well-to-do family, Emily seems to have two loves - animals, environment and cars. She owns about three cars - a Toyota Prius and two models of the Ford Mustang. She is a tourer of sorts having been spotted in Canada, Yugoslavia, Brentwood, Hampshire and many places in USA. Having transformed into a vegan more than 15 years ago, she is an active activist for animal rights. Among the seven charities she supports, three of them support animals - PETA, Farm Sanctuary and Natural resources Defense Council. She also supports children's rights and women's rights. She openly speaks of her passion to be eco-friendly and has expressed the desire to power her home via solar energy. She also produces documentaries to promote awareness of the environment and animals in particular. It was as if destiny chose Emily to be an actress gifting her with an Academy Award-nominee father, an actress-mother and an actress-sister. She tested the acting waters in It Could Happen to You and, assuring herself that she belonged to the silver-screen, graduated with a Bachelors of Fine Arts from the Boston University. She then played roles in multiple short films like It’s a Shame About Ray but did not score well on the industry radars somehow. She then began concentrating on television through an episode of the popular series, Law & Order: Special Victims Unit and Providence. It was Providence that got her back to movies -Cold Mountain, The Alamo and Spider-Man 2. But she was overshadowed by the budget and star-studded cast of the movies. Then, in 2005, Bones happened. Her fortunes changed and she was picked to star in the second season too. The actress has been an active vegan for more than a decade and is married to writer and actor, David Hornsby.


  • I really like being pregnant. Not that there aren't things I don't love, but when I think about what my body is doing - creating a child - it just blows my mind. I'm in awe of the process and science.
  • I've been vegan for 15 years, and it turns out it makes a very big impact on the environment to eat fewer animal products, which cause more greenhouse gases than all of transportation combined.
  • It makes a big difference to recycle. It makes a big difference to use recycled products. It makes a big difference to reuse things, to not use the paper cup - and each time you do, that's a victory.
  • I'm definitely a people person. I love socializing and being around people and having a good conversation.
  • For me, it always has to be about health. That's why I'm a vegan. Well, I don't even do that for my health entirely, I do it for animals.
