Zooey Deschanel has revealed that she was surprised by the success of New Girl.
The actress told Parade that she is proud the Fox series has found a loyal audience.
Deschanel said, “I just loved the character so much and hoped other people would, too. She’s really optimistic and responds differently to the world,”
The star also rejected the suggestion that she will ever change her signature hairstyle.
“I’m pretty much all bangs and eyes! I grew my bangs out before, but I don’t feel like myself if I don’t have them,” she joked.
Deschanel recently described being nominated for a Primetime Emmy Award for New Girl as a “dream”.
“I didn’t want to assume anything, but I got the phone call and woke up. It’s this thing you dream about when you decided to become an actor. It’s a huge, incredible life moment,” Deschanel stated.
New Girl returns with a special episode at 8pm ET on September 25, followed by its second season premiere at 9pm ET on Fox.
