Growing up, while most of Emily Deschanel’s friends and classmates were playing with Barbies, she was busy scheming her version of the ultimate, multi-tiered Dream House. “I wanted to be an architect when I was younger. I was always trying to build a Barbie house with things like wood or Legos,” says the Los Angeles native, who appears as Dr. Temperance “Bones” Brennan on the Fox hit television series, Bones.

Maybe that’s what happens when you get your passport when you’re four years old.

“We would travel when my dad would work, and I went to a million different schools,” she says, referring to father, cinematographer Caleb Deschanel. “We lived in Italy, London, Canada, former Yugoslavia, and the Seychelles, off the coast of Africa. It’s kind of funny that I found the most sedentary job, and now have to have a job near home especially with kids, and my husband works on the same lot. It’s really wonderful and such a luxury.”

The svelte, chestnut-haired beauty, whose younger sister is actor Zooey Deschanel, is married to actor David Hornsby, and mother of two sons, Henry, who turns four next month, and Calvin, three-and-a-half months. She has appeared in other television series including American Dadand The Cleveland Show and films such as Spider-Man 2, My Sister’s Keeper and Cold Mountain. But, she admits, she didn’t seriously contemplate acting as a career until she was a junior or senior in high school. “I don’t think I considered it as a profession even though my mother was an actor,” says Emily, of her mother, actress Mary Jo Deschanel.

It’s also the time that Emily, a vegan for 22 years, first saw the documentary Diet for a New America. “It shed some light on the conditions of factory farms in the U.S., and how that can lead to deteriorating health and the impact on the environment,” she says. “There are three main points, including the cruelty of factory farms, which is now the norm, and how the animals are treated as a commodity. As a result the animals are treated very cruelly, they are in cages and they can’t even turn around. I didn’t like it that that is where my food was coming from, and I hadn’t thought about how my food had gotten to my plate before that.”

Visiting Farm Sanctuary Gave ‘A New Perspective’ To Emily Deschanel’s Life

Emily Deschanel is an avid animal lover and has been a vegan for a long time. Recently, the talented actress visited a Farm Sanctuary animal shelter. This was the first time that she was making such a visit and said that it was a “life-changing” experience for her. As the actress, aged 38 said, “I had already known that farm animals have feelings and intellect, but then to really see them up close and spend time with these animals was pretty incredible,” “I didn’t realize how individual chickens could be, and the people who work there know each sheep by name from far away. They’re individual creatures who have their own little souls and personalities and quirks.”

Deschanel Involved With Organization For The Last 8 Years

Deschanel has been deeply involved with the organization for the last 8 years. The organization runs 3 shelters in addition to working towards passing legislation for the humane treatment of farm animals. She said that she especially felt for the farm animals, because every yearover 10 billion animals are killed to provide food.  The numbers are really high, but till date nobody has raised a voice largely because they are not aware of these numbers.

Actress Desirous That Her Son InheritsLove Of Animals From Her

Deschanel is hopeful that the love and sympathy that she has for animals can be passed on to her son Henry, aged 3. She has started working towards that end and brought the young man alongwith her to the farm. She wants him to be comfortable with the animals understand them and also understand why they should not eat them.

24 August 2015Site

As you probably knew if you follow us on Twitter @DeschanelDaily, you knew that our beloved host shut down and that I was looking for a new home for this site and I did it!

I’m happy to inform you, in fact, that Emily Deschanel Daily has now a new home, which means you can now browse our site and content without problem. The only different thing is our domain – you can find us at emily-deschanel.com so make sure to update your bookmark!

There isn’t much news about Emily at the moment, especially because of the new babies in her family – Emily in fact isn’t the only one who gave birth to a baby this year and her sister Zooey not only got married but she’s also had a wonderful daughter (congrats, Zooey!) so it’s perfectly understandable that Emily wants to spend time with her family before going back to business and shooting the new season of Bones.

However, there are a few articles I found online that I would like to share with you all so check later to read them! Same goes with pictures – I’ll try update the gallery as much as I can, especially with the missing screencaps and stills of Bones!
