Deschanel soon became known for her deadpan and “Manic Pixie Dream Girl” supporting roles in films such as Elf (2003), The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy (2005), Failure to Launch (2006), Bridge to Terabithia (2007) Happening, TheThe Happening (2008), Yes Man (2008), and (500) Days of Summer (2009). She currently stars in the Fox series New Girl. Her older sister, Emily Deschanel, is also an actress and stars in the TV series Bones. Deschanel lived in Los Angeles, but spent much of her childhood traveling because her father shot films on location; she later said that she “hated all the traveling … I’m really happy now that I had the experience, but at the time I was just so miserable to have to leave my friends in Los Angeles and go to places where they didn’t have any food I liked or things I was used to.” She attended Crossroads, a private preparatory school in Santa Monica, California, where she befriended future co-stars Jake Gyllenhaal and Kate Hudson. Deschanel appeared in a guest role on the television series Veronica’s Closet before making her film debut in Lawrence Kasdan’s 1999 comedy Mumford, and later in the year she appeared (non-singing) in the music video for The Offspring’s single “She’s Got Issues”. That year, she also appeared in the film The New Guy as Nora, the guitar player in the lead character’s band, Suburban Funk. Later in 2003, Deschanel played a deadpan department store worker opposite Will Ferrell in the comedy Elf, which became a box office hit.
