Here’s why we love this sweet star.

08 August 2018

She’s the Funny Girl

Although Deschanel’s dabbled in drama, she’s better known for being a comedy queen – entertaining audiences with several comedic roles on TV and in film.

She’s the Quirky Girl

With credits in offbeat comedies like The Hitchhikers’ Guide to the Galaxy and 500 Days of Summer, Deschanel’s unique delivery of humour has made her stand out from the popcorn pack.

She’s the Cute Girl

Her quirky roles and blue doe eyes set her apart from the dime-a-dozen Hollywood blondes, and elevate the bubbly energy she brings to her roles.

She’s the Family Girl

She followed in her family’s footsteps when she chose TV and film as a career path. Her father, Caleb, is a cinematographer and director who’s directed episodes of TV hits like Bones and Twin Peaks, while getting Oscar nominations for his work as a cinematographer. Zoeey’s mother, Mary Jo, is also an actress, as is her older sister Emily – if you’re a Bones’ fan, you’ll recognise her as the show’s lead and title character, Dr. Temperance "Bones" Brennan.

She’s the New Girl

Perhaps her most famous role to date, Zoeey Deschanel has delighted viewers as Jess in seven seasons of the hit show New Girl. Funny, cute, and quirky, the role showcases so many of the things we love about Zooey Deschanel.

Catch the seventh and final season of New Girl every Saturday at 17:30, starting 18 August on M-Net channel 101.
