Hollywood actress Emily Deschanel has been playing the role of Dr. Temperance "Bones" Brennan in the hit television series Bones for nine seasons now, appearing in 188 episodes along the way. Over the course of the past nine seasons, Emily has got to know her co-star David Boreanaz very well, as he has played the role of Agent Seeley Booth for 188 episodes of the show.
As well as starring in Bones, David Boreanaz has also been involved in directing the occasional episode of the hit series, including the upcoming Bones season nine finale, which airs later in the month. Emily has been talking about the Bones season nine finale, praising David for his directing of the episode.
During an interview with Collider, Deschanel explained, "I love being directed by David, and I’m not just saying that. I say it to everybody who’s not on our set. I think David is just really talented as a director, as well as an actor. He has a whole other career, if he wants it, when this thing’s over. He’s great, technically. He’s good with the actors, he’s decisive, and he knows what he wants and what he doesn’t want. He comes in and I’m always amazed at how he’s dealing with all of these incredible elements. He makes it seem so easy."
She added, "Yes, there are huge scenes. There’s a lot that goes on in this episode. Without giving too much away, there’s a lot of elements and he does it all with ease. I love working with him, so it was a pleasure to work with him as an actor and as a director. The season finale was a great experience. There’s a big cliffhanger. There’s a lot going on for Booth and for Brennan. I think everyone will be pleased. I haven’t seen the episode yet, but everyone who’s seen it has been raving about it, so I’m really excited to see it myself."
As well as starring Emily Deschanel and David Boreanaz in 188 episodes of Bones, the hit series has also seen the likes of Michaela Conlin and T.J. Thyne appearing in the most amount of episodes along the way. The Bones season nine finale will air on May 19, with Bones season 10 already confirmed for later this year.
