Mazur began modeling and acting in her teens. One of her most well-known ad campaigns are the three TV commercials for Gap she did with director Adam Daelay in 1999: "Everybody in Cords", "Everybody in Leather" and "Everybody in Vests" in which she sings. She has appeared in a number of widely released films in the past several years, including Torque, Dead Man Running, Monster-in-Law, Stoned, and Just Married. She has also appeared in several television series, including Castle, CSI: Miami, Cold Case, Strange World, Chuck, and Rizzoli & Isles.

Early in the first (2009) season of the television series NCIS: Los Angeles, Mazur appeared in a single episode as a Secret Service agent who is enamored with Chris O'Donnell's lead character. While the role was to potentially be recurring, Mazur’s character did not reappear on the series.[2] She appeared in three episodes, over 2009 and 2010, of Castle as Gina, the publisher and ex-wife of character Richard Castle.

Currently she plays Laura Baker in The CW drama series, All American. The show premiered October 2018. In April 2019 the show was renewed for a second season. In January 2020, the show was renewed for a third season.

Personal lifeEdit

Mazur was born in Los Angeles, California, the daughter of Ruby Mazur, an illustrator known for creating the "tongue" logo for the Rolling Stones' "Tumbling Dice" single jacket,[3] and Valerie Chasin, who was a model. Mazur is the oldest of four siblings, the only daughter, all given first names that are the last names of famous artists (Monet, a brother named for Matisse, and twin brothers named for Cézanne and Miro).[3] Mazur is of Jewish ancestry on her father's side.[4][5] Mazur's cousin is Epic Mazur of the band Crazy Town, in which she appeared in the music video to their song "Revolving Door" alongside Kimberly Stewart.[6]

In the summer of 2005, Mazur gave birth to son Marlon, her first child, with husband, British film director Alex de Rakoff, whom she married in April 2005. In 2011, they had a second child, named Luciano Cy.[7] As of July 2018, the couple have filed for divorce.[8]
