She is coming off the seven-season run of Fox’s New Girl, where she won a Critics’ Choice Award, and earned Emmy and Golden Globe nominations for her role as the titular girl. In film, she has starred in All the Real Girls and The Good Girl, as well as non-Girl features Almost Famous, Yes Man, Elf and Trolls, among others.
Deschanel also is the “She” in indie pop/folk act She & Him, her duo with singer-songwriter M. Ward. The two earned a Grammy nomination for “So Long,” from the soundtrack to Disney’s 2012 animated feature Winnie the Pooh. Deschanel, who sings and plays piano and ukulele in the band, directed its 2013 music video “I Could’ve Been Your Girl.” (She stepped behind the camera again in 2016 to helm the sixth-season premiere of New Girl.)
She continues to be represented by attorney Steve Warren at Hansen Jacobson and publicist Lauren Auslander of Luna Entertainment.
