Zosia Mamet

In film and television, Zosia Mamet is quickly establishing herself as one of the industry’s most exciting new talents.  Since the spring of 2012, Mamet has starred in the Emmy Award and Golden Globe Award-winning HBO series “Girls.” Created by and starring Lena Dunham, the series is critically acclaimed for taking a comic look at the assorted humiliations and rare triumphs of a group of girls in their early 20s. Dunham, Judd Apatow and Jenni Konner executive produce the show, which recently returned for its fifth season on February 21, 2016.  Mamet’s character ‘Shoshanna’ strives for a lifestyle akin to the “Sex and the City” aesthetic, and struggles with the obvious pitfalls of any woman who aspires to ‘Carrie Bradshaw’ proportions. A graduate of NYU, she’s obsessed with “women’s issues,” gluten-free foods, and sex-centric self-help--an unlikely voice of reason within a group of assorted misfits with their own eccentricities.
