21 September 2013'Bones', News

Throughout its nine seasons, Fox’s “Bones” has attracted legions of fans, who have been drawn not only to the crime-solving mysteries the show offers each week but also to the unlikely, hot-and-cold romance of the series’ two leads: Seeley Booth, played by David Boreanaz, and Dr. Temperance “Bones” Brennan, played by Emily Deschanel. As the show returns this week, fans are about to see their yearnings at last fulfilled as the crime-fighting partners appear to be headed for the altar.

Deschanel took a break from filming her big wedding day to speak to us about the show by phone from the set, what this union means to fans, growing up in a show-business family, and 20 years of not eating animals.

1. The Internet is buzzing about the fact that your real-life husband is playing the priest who marries you in your onscreen wedding. Lots of people are worried for him.

Oh really? I just like the inside joke of it all. He’s playing the priest and he’s marrying us. On the show he writes on, “Always Sunny in Philadelphia,” he also plays a priest, defrocked. So it’s fun to have him here; he’s done a great job so far. But you’d have to ask him if it bothers him. There’s lots of funny dialogue to make him feel uncomfortable.

2. Why does Bones’s relationship with Booth mean so much to people?

So many people tell me, “Your character reminds me so much of my wife.” I think that people can relate. My character is fairly unique in the world of television. You haven’t seen many female characters like this — the kind of socially awkward, brilliant at science, but not very modest. Lacking in tact sometimes, if you’re putting a negative spin on the character. I think people know people like this, and they love seeing her get into funny situations with Booth and seeing these two kind of opposite characters grow. People want to believe that love conquers all and that differences can be worked out, and I do believe that, too.

3. But in the middle of all the love scenes, do you ever want to scream, “There’s a murderer on the loose!” Does their relationship stand in the way of their crime fighting? Are they being irresponsible?

I don’t think we’re being irresponsible. It’s nature that you’re going to have relationships in your life, and sometimes it’s with the people you work with. But whether it’s romantic or unromantic, there’s dynamics, and that can play a part in your conversations, in how you approach things. We’re very professional at the Jeffersonian Branch of the FBI, and nothing’s gotten in the way of [solving] a crime so far.

4. You give us your word that no killer has gotten away because of their romance?

I give you my word. No murderers are getting away with anything because of our relationship. If anything, it helps. Because we talk to each other even more; we go home and talk about the cases. Even when we try not to.

5. Could you ever be in that close of a business relationship with your own husband?

That’s a good question. I don’t know. I think it’s wonderful to have a relationship where you both go out and live your lives and you bring something to the table, because you’ve had other interactions. Being apart from each other is healthy for a relationship, but I don’t know. I’ve never worked with somebody who I’ve been involved with.

6. Does having grown up in L.A. change how you see entertainment compared to your peers?

For me, I just come in and do my job. I’m not into any glitz or glamour or anything like that. Sure, I like to get dressed up; I’m excited to get dressed up for the Emmys — that’s fun to me. But I never have any delusions about what Hollywood is or was. I never thought it was glamorous other than the little tiny bits that it is in real life. I knew that there’s hard work involved. I’m not saying I have the hardest job in the world, but there’s lot’s of parts of the job that aren’t fancy, and you shouldn’t be enamored by that too much, because it’s all surface.

7. Does your background make you less tolerant of divas on the set or more understanding of them?

I think a little bit of both. I think sometimes people come from certain situations, and they expect certain things in any situation, I try to put myself in somebody’s shoes and have their perspective. Let’s just say, I don’t enjoy it, the diva aspects. But there’s no divas on our show, and I haven’t had to work with many divas. I guess I’ve encountered people who have a certain entitled attitude, and you just deal with it, but my first instinct is to be intolerant of it.

8. Do you want to live somewhere else someday?

Yeah, I go back and forth about that. I feel conflicted. My whole family is in Los Angeles; I grew up in Los Angeles. I know it well. There’s lots I love about Los Angeles. But I fantasize about getting away somewhere, to a country farm where lots of animals are free to roam. That would be wonderful. But I don’t know if that will ever be a reality for me.

9. How’d you become a vegan?

I became a vegan at Crossroads [high school], actually. It was called Diet for a New America, and it started a whole debate about whether it was ethical to eat meat or not. Which engaged me, and I felt the arguments for not eating meat were much stronger than the arguments for eating meat, when I saw the reality of how our food gets to our plates. Not only the cruelty to the animals but also the detriment to the environment and also our health. It was kind of a win-win-win situation when I decided to become vegetarian after that. I wanted to become vegan, but I did that slowly. I became vegetarian for two years, then became vegan. I do think it’s the most humane and environmentally sound way to live, as long as you are good about your nutrition, because like any diet you have to be careful.

10. Do you get grossed out when people eat meat around you?

You know, there’s a certain amount of grossness, I guess, to me, but I’ve lived for 20 years with people eating meat next to me, and I have to be understanding of where they are and their choices if I want them to understand my choices. So I try to be tolerant and understanding. Yeah, it grosses me out on a certain level, but I have become used to that, I guess you could say.

11. How do you square animal suffering with human suffering?

Is animal suffering as important as human suffering? I don’t know. It’s hard for me to say. I don’t believe that animals are ours to use or to harm. They feel pain. There are people who might not be as intelligent, but they feel pain. And I don’t think we should feel OK or ethically sound hurting them, just as I don’t think it’s ethically sound to hurt an animal, when it’s perfectly healthy and doable to survive on non-animal sources of food. I don’t know. If there’s a hierarchy, humans I might value more than animals on some level, but to me, that doesn’t give me a right to hurt an animal. There’s a real gray area. If you say you need to kill these 10 rats to cure cancer and save all these people, that’s wonderful. But that said, a lot of times it’s not about saving people’s lives or curing cancer. There’s lots of people experimenting on animals for cosmetics that I don’t think any of us would agree are ethically sound or justified.

12. You are presenting at the Emmys. Are you resentful that police dramas are never acknowledged?

I don’t know. You can go down that path, but I think it’s a dangerous path to go down. So many people and shows are not recognized that are fantastic shows. And a lot of times I just love the shows and actors who are nominated and win Emmys. I can’t really argue that. I’ve never gone in this business for awards. I wouldn’t expect that for myself or the show. For the genre, I know how the genre is. People consider it entertainment rather than an art form, which I’m totally fine with because it is entertainment. It’s a dangerous road to go down. We have been nominated for production design and visual effects, so the “Bones” show has been acknowledged by them. The real reward is to play this character for nine seasons and maybe beyond. That’s the most amazing reward, to have this job.

“Bones” airs Mondays at 8 p.m. on Fox.

Pelant may be on his way out, but that doesn’t mean Bones‘ Booth and Brennan can kick back and focus on wedding seating charts and signature cocktails.

It’s no secret that the pair will take down their nemesis during Season 9 (which premieres Sept. 16 at 8/7c), but the end of his reign of terror will only bring on more troubles for the crime-solving duo.

“Pelant is part of uncovering our next Big Bad,” executive producer Hart Hanson revealed during a recent conference call.

The new foe “looms over our people in a way we have yet to see on Bones,” added fellow EP Stephen Nathan. “It’s someone who is far more ephemeral than any of our other bad guys.”

But first, Brennan and Booth must deal with that pesky cyber hacktavist. “Pelant will definitely figure into their lives quite heavily in the first few episodes,” shared Nathan. “It’ll be a far more intense episode. It’ll be them confronting him in a way we haven’t seen before.”

And the resolution will come “fairly quickly,” since the couple will tie the knot early in the season. “They can’t really get married until the issue of Pelant has been dealt with one way or another,” pointed out Hanson.

Read on for more scoop about the new season:

WEDDED BLISS | Hanson said he intends to give fans “a wedding in the way they don’t expect it.” One of the guests at the affair will be Booth’s ex-priest, Aldo (played by Mather Zickel), who will be back throughout the season. As for after the nuptials, Booth and Brennan’s union won’t change them, but it will challenge them. “We wanted them to get married and then put them in the most extreme situations we possibly could for the remainder of the year to test that relationship,” said Nathan.

GOING ABROAD | The newly married couple will honeymoon in Buenos Aires, where they discover “that the entire country of Argentina is madly in love with Brennan’s books, and it takes a turn that even Brennan didn’t see coming,” previewed Nathan.

BROKEN FRIENDSHIP | The bad feelings between Booth and Angela, who takes Brennan’s side during the couple’s woes, will linger for a while. “They both love Brennan, and [you] don’t step between sisters, which Booth has done,” explained Hanson. “That’s going to take a while to play out, because hurtful things were said, and they don’t fix themselves overnight.”

BURNING QUESTIONS | The EPs wouldn’t say when the mystery behind the cryptic “447” number will be answered, but they did reveal that viewers soon will learn what Brennan wrote when she was buried alive with Hodgins in Season 2, as well as Angela’s real name!

GROSS-OUT | “One episode coming up has something that seems to be one of the most revolting things – and I say that with great delight – that we’ve ever had on Bones, and it has nothing do to with a dead body,” teased Nathan.
