Zooey Claire Deschanel born January 17, 1980 (age 37), in Los Angeles, California, United States. She is well known American actress and singer-songwriter. Deschanel lived in Los Angeles, but spent much of her childhood traveling because her father shot films on location.
Deschanel signed on to star as a bubbly and offbeat teacher named Jess Day on the Fox sitcom New Girl, created by Elizabeth Meriwether. She became a producer on the show and helped build the character, which she has described as a part of her, especially in regards to “the sort of enthusiasm and optimism” of her youth. The series premiered in September 2011, and USA Today described her performance as “a role tailored to launch her from respected indie actor to certified [television] star, Deschanel soars, combining well-honed skills with a natural charm.”. She has received one Emmy and three Golden Globe nominations for her role. Deschanel hosted Saturday Night Live on February 11, 2012.
