According to BuzzFeed, Deschanel recently opened up about her on-screen chemistry with actor Jake Johnson, who played Nick Miller on “New Girl.” The podcast is called “Welcome to our Show” and is hosted by Deschanel and fellow “New Girl” alumni Lamorne Morris, and Hannah Simone.
Deschanel shared how the producers on the show thought she and Johnson had too much chemistry before they eventually got together as a couple during the 7th season. She shared, “I remember them saying that,” she continued, “They were like, ‘Listen, you guys have such great chemistry. This is a series. We have to play this out over time, and we don’t want to put you guys in the same storylines together.'”
According to Entertainment Tonight, Deschanel continued, “I was like, ‘Isn’t that a good thing?’ I think we all had good chemistry together from the get-go, in different ways.”
Fans can’t help but wonder what made Deschanel and Johnson’s chemistry so intense. According to Showbiz Cheat Sheet, the show’s team didn’t even want them looking at each other because of their intense chemistry! Even if they didn’t share that same chemistry off-screen, fans wished they would have gotten together sooner on the show, as they had to wait 7 seasons to see them finally become a couple!
