Bones Cast: Life after the Show
The series “Bones” went through so many seasons that fans were hoping it would never end. Unfortunately, it did come to an end, as there really wasn’t anywhere else the story could develop. Everything that could have happened to the characters has already happened, so there was really no other option than to stop the show. However, that doesn’t mean that we still can’t keep up with the cast members and remember those good “Bones” days. Keep reading to find out what the actors are up to know!
MICHAELA CONLIN / ANGELA MONTENEGRO
Angela has been one of the brightest characters on “Bones”, and it's been very hard to say goodbye to her after long 12 years together. Michaela Conlin, who portrayed this character, didn't take up any other jobs for a long time. It had been more than a year after the final episode before Michaela Conlin appeared in another big project.
Conlin became a part of the cast of “Yellowstone” which aired in 2018. It was the story of the Dutton family, the owners of the largest ranch in the USA who are facing the issue of land encroachment. Besides that, Conlin also starred in an episode of “Here and Now”, and made it to the big screen in “Bad Trip”.
WHAT IS THERE TO KNOW ABOUT MICHAELA’S PERSONAL LIFE?
Well, what we know is that he's not very revealing with the details. Even on her social media, her pictures really don't tell us much about what she's doing off-camera. We only know that Micaela was engaged to her colleague, T.J. Thyne in 2007, but the couple broke up in 2011.
Some say that they've had a secret child together, but that seems to just be a rumor. By the way, Michaela has a son Charlie, who was born on February 3, 2019, and we have no idea who the father is! We will have to keep waiting for her to open up about her private life!
T.J. THYNE / JACK HODGINS
Jack Hodgins is an entomologist, botanist, mineralogist, and Angela's husband. Who didn't love this fan of conspiracy theories? You'll be surprised when you find out that after “Bones”, T.J. Thyne left the industry for a few years. The fans were quite surprised as he was quite talented as an actor.
We haven't seen him on our screens for a while. He probably decided to take a break and get some much-needed rest after all his hard work on "Bones". But he had a pretty well-established career up until the show ended, so it could be the time he took to evaluate what he wants to do now.
WHAT HAS HE BEEN UP TO RECENTLY?
The actor has a very active Instagram profile, from which we found out how he spends his vacations, that he does marathons, and helps his sister with nursing his niece. In 2019 he appeared in an episode of “Law & Order: Special Victims Unit”, and this year he became a part of the “Gentefied” cast which premiered on Netflix in February.
We don't know much about his relationships either. After breaking up with Michaela Conlin, TJ started dating Leah Park. Shortly before 2014, the couple announced their engagement and TJ posted pictures of a happy Leah on his Instagram. We don't know what happened next but since the actor deleted all the pictures and stopped posting selfies of them together.
Thanks so much for all the lovely comments! You are all so wonderful :0) here's a few more for ya! :0) pic.twitter.com/KXHjW3cSjh— TJ Thyne (@TJThyne) December 31, 2013
ERIC MILLEGAN / ZACK ADDY
After his remarkable role in “Bones”, Eric hasn't shown up anywhere else. It might be related to his health problems, as Millegan revealed that he had bipolar disorder. When asked if he's going to continue acting, Eric replied that he would "love to do another series.” Continuing that “It’s about finding the right series and the right role.”
“I would love to do theater again. My goal when I came out of college was to be on Broadway, and I got that opportunity in the 2000 revival of Jesus Christ Superstar, and I’d love to do work like that again." Meanwhile, he's living with his long-time partner and now-husband Charles Michel.
EMILY DESCHANEL / DR. TEMPERANCE BRENNAN
The amazing Dr. Brennan who helped catch so many criminals with her skills! Deschanel and David Boreanaz portrayed their chemistry so well that it was hard to believe that the actors aren't in love in real life. However, in real life, Emily is married to David Hornsby who you might know from “It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia”.
Not only has Emily herself become vegan, but she also thinks that her children shouldn't eat animal products either. Deschanel revealed that she likes to refer to her seven-year-old son, Henry, as “the vegan police". The six-year-old made the choice to go vegan and is very health-conscious, according to his mom.
WHAT ELSE IS GOING ON IN HER PERSONAL LIFE?
Deschanel has shared her beliefs about veganism, saying that "Being healthy, being kind to animals, and being kind to our environment that's, to me, the thing that motivates me the most.” Good for her! And it’s good to see she has a positive impact on her children too!
After the shooting of “Bones” ended, the talented actress, the older sister of equally talented Zoe Deschanel, decided to take a break from work. For some years, she disappeared from screens and devoted her time to her family. Over the course of shooting the show, the actress went through many milestones in her life, like getting married and giving birth.
HOW “BONES” ACCOMMODATED HER PREGNANCIES
Her pregnancies were actually written into the script of “Bones”. In 2019, the actress joined the cast of the popular TV show “Animal Kingdom” for its fourth season. Also, Emily and her sister Zoe attended the Oscars ceremony, which was a pretty clear statement that she had decided to return to Hollywood.
And this February the Deschanel sisters became a part of James Corden's Carpool Karaoke: The Series. Together with HGTV stars, Drew and Jonathan Scott, they made a funny sibling-rivalry rendezvous. However, when asked if she would like to star in a Bones reboot, the actress had a vague answer.
WHAT DID SHE SAY?
"I would like some time before I consider that,” Deschanel said. “We put 12 years into the show and that’s not nothing…it will be very weird and emotional to say goodbye, and then next week to be like, ‘Okay! We’re coming back!’ That’s not to say I wouldn’t consider it, but I think we need some time.”
DAVID BOREANAZ / SEELEY BOOTH
The name David Boreanaz probably has a cult following all on its own. It seems that he's been capturing women's hearts throughout his whole career. David was incredibly popular before “Bones”, having portrayed a charming vampire Angel in “Buffy the Vampire Slayer” and then in its spinoff.
Actually, since 1997, after a recurring role in the first season of “Buffy”, David has been a regular (and the male lead, in fact) in TV series every single year. There’s no “always” in television… unless you’re David Boreanaz. Now, on “SEAL Team” - in which his character, Jason Hayes, struggles in his personal and professional lives - Boreanaz continues the pattern.
THE BIGGEST ACCOMPLISHMENTS OF HIS CAREER
He's left a lot of traces in the television industry throughout his career. The actor's never been off TV long enough for us to miss him. His longest break between roles was between the end of “Angel” in the spring of 2004 and the premiere of “Bones” in the fall of 2005.
Not long ago, David along with his on-screen wife Emily Deschanel, and all the creators, actors, and producers of the show, won a lawsuit against FOX worth $179 million. The lawsuit started in 2015 while “Bones” was still in production, alleging that Fox had been cheating them out of back-end revenue from the show’s distribution.
BUT WHAT ABOUT HIS PERSONAL LIFE?
It seems that David's personal life is going just as well as his financial situation. As many already know, in 2010 the actor admitted having cheated on his wife, Jaime Bergman, with Rachel Uchitel. You may have heard the name of this woman in regards to a similar situation with Tiger Woods.
Moreover, Jaime Bergman was pregnant at the time, which made everything even worse. Even though back then Bergman said that she was angry, the couple decided to work on their relationship. And we're glad they managed to solve their problems. Now David and Jaime raise two kids - an 18-year-old son Jaden and an 11-year-old daughter Bella.
“BONES” REBOOT: YAY OR NAY?
“It’s very hard for me to answer that question, honestly. I don’t know what’s going to happen in six hours. Everything is possible in life, but I tend to like to go forward, I don’t like to go backwards…in general, I don’t like reunions and I don’t like to go back,” the actor said.
