Emily Deschanel

An actress with talent and poise, Emily Deschanel has quickly built an impressive list of credits, challenging herself with each new role.

Deschanel currently stars on FOX's Bones with David Boreanaz. Executive produced by Barry Josephson (Hide and Seek, Ladykillers) and Hart Hanson (Joan of Arcadia, Judging Amy), the darkly amusing drama features Deschanel as Dr. Temperance Brennan, a forensic anthropologist who writes novels as a sideline and has an uncanny ability to read clues left behind in a victim’s bones. Consequently, law enforcement calls her in to assist with murder investigations when the remains are so badly decomposed, burned, or destroyed that the standard identification methods are useless.

On the big screen, Deschanel starred in Disney's Glory Road opposite Josh Lucas, Derek Luke, and Jon Voight. Directed by James Gartner, the film tells the story of the 1966 Texas Western University basketball team, which was the first college basketball team with an all black starting line-up to win an NCAA National Championship.

Deschanel has amassed a number of credits including Anthony Minghella's Cold Mountain, John Lee Hancock's The Alamo, Sam Raimi's Spiderman 2, Stephen Kay's Boogeyman, and Jane Weinstock's Easy.

Deschanel's television credits include guest star appearances on Crossing Jordan, Providence, and Law and Order: SVU. In addition, she appeared in Stephen King's mini-series, Rose Red.

A member of the Interact Theatre Company, Deschanel's recent theatre credits include the roles of Emily in Our Town and Natasha in Three Sisters.

Deschanel was born in Los Angeles and received her BFA in Theater from Boston University.
