Zooey and Emily Deschanel

Actresses Zooey, left, and Emily Deschanel are each on network TV shows. Older sister Emily (35) has been starring in "Bones" with David Boreanaz since the show's 2005 premiere, while younger sister Zooey (31) is in the sitcom "New Girl." They are the daughters of cinematographer Caleb Deschanel and actress Mary Jo Deschanel. Each are known for playing quirky characters — maybe Zooey moreso than Emily — but Emily was camera-shy. She's since broken out of that affliction. Michael Buckner / Getty Images
