Hailing from a culturally accomplished family, Zosia Mamet first made an impact with twenty-something viewers on the critically acclaimed series "Girls" (HBO, 2012- ). She was the daughter of Lindsay Crouse and legendary Hollywood scribe David Mamet, as well as the granddaughter of Russel Crouse, the co-writer of such classic musicals as "The Sound of Music" (1965). Not surprisingly, she benefited from her family connections, appearing in many of their projects. After small roles in "Parallel Lives" (TK, 1994), "Colin Fitz Lives!" (1997) and "Spartan" (2004), Mamet notched a recurring role on the military procedural "The Unit" (CBS, 2006-09). She was cast in the juicy role of daughter Saffron on the American attempt to reimagine "Absolutely Fabulous" (BBC One, 1992-96, 2001-04, 2011- ), but the pilot never made it to series.
