Zooey and Emily Deschanel
Acting clearly runs in the Deschanel blood. Sisters Zooey and Emily have found great success as actresses, but they aren’t the first in the family to thrive in Hollywood. Dad Caleb is an Academy Award-nominated cinematographer and mom Mary Jo played Eileen Hayward on the television series “Twin Peaks.” Emily, 36, currently stars as Dr. Temperance "Bones" Brennan on the series “Bones” while her younger sister Zooey, 33, stars in the Fox show “New Girl.” —XFINITY Entertainment Staff (Photo by Kevin Winter/Getty Images)
