Biography

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.

Bonus Trivia

.

Zosia is the daughter of the Pulitzer Prize-winning playwright David Mamet.

.

"I am a huge advocate of empowering women—the idea of women supporting each other and supporting themselves and making strong choices that make them happy. I think often feminism gets a very narrow definition. It's not about making s***-tons of money and running a Fortune 500 company. It’s about doing what makes you feel good as a woman, and if that’s being a stay-at-home mom, you can be just as much of a feminist that way as you can as a fighter pilot." - from www.allure.com, September 12, 2014

.

"I really didn’t know my dad that well, and it was wonderful finally to find that relationship. It’s great, we’re incredibly close now. I have a wonderful stepmom, great half-siblings, and my older sister is wonderful. And I’ve gotten to create my own family with my friends." - from The Telegraph, February 3, 2014

.

"I understand why people sometimes say that some celebrity was such a bitch. Sometimes I’m late for a doctor’s appointment. Sometimes I’m being called to the set. I don’t always have time. I would like to be a little more anonymous." - from The New York Times, January 2, 2013

.

"There’s been an interesting perspective shift: wanting to get married and have kids is almost thought of as unfeminist. It’s come to be seen as weak or desperate or that your priorities are out of whack. I think the definition of feminism has been a bit bastardised, and it needs to be addressed. It doesn’t mean losing your femininity." - from The Telegraph, February 3, 2014
