David Boreanaz “Bones” Interview – EXCLUSIVE!
By Abbie Bernstein
BONES has its eighth-season finale Monday night, April 29, at 8 PM on Fox. The series stars David Boreanaz as dedicated FBI Special Agent Seeley Booth, who is patriotic, Catholic, a survivor of a violent father and a mother who left the family when Booth was still a boy. Booth solves cases with brilliant, literal-minded, atheist forensic anthropologist Temperance “Bones” Brennan, played by Emily Deschanel. As BONES fans know, despite (or perhaps because of) their very different personalities, Booth and Brennan are deeply in love with one another. They got together romantically at the end of Season Six and now have a toddler daughter, Christine, though the couple are not yet married (Booth has decided to wait until the less conventional Brennan is comfortable enough with the idea to propose to him).
When Boreanaz gets a television role, he sticks with it. He spent three years on BUFFY THE VAMPIRE SLAYER as Angel, the vampire with a soul, then played the character for another five years as the lead in ANGEL, making a total of eight years in the part. Now Boreanaz is poised to surpass that record as Booth, since BONES has officially been picked up by Fox for a ninth season.
