There are some very talented actors and actresses in Hollywood these days and they all have a different story to tell about how they made it to where they are today. Different people became actors and actresses for different reasons, with different circumstances affecting how their career took the path that it did along the way.
New Girl actress Zooey Deschanel has been in the acting industry for many years now, playing some very interesting roles in a variety of different television shows and movies along the way. Zooey has opened up about her acting career, revealing exactly when it was and what it was that made her want to become an actress.
Deschanel explained, "When I was 2, I saw The Wizard of Oz, and I was obsessed with it. My dad filmed everything I did, because he's a cinematographer, and we have it on tape, me up at the screen. I learned all the lyrics to Somewhere Over the Rainbow, before I could really form sentences. I told my mom that I was going to jump in the TV. She was like, 'Oh, really, you are?' I told her I would. And I did it!"
Fans of Zooey Deschanel can see the actress in her, now very familiar, role as Jess in the hit television series New Girl, which sees the actress sharing the screen with the likes of Jake Johnson, Max Greenfield, Hannah Simone, and Lamorne Morris. The New Girl season three finale aired back in May, with the show being renewed for a fourth season, which will premiere later in the year.
