Monet Happy Mazur (born April 17, 1976) is an American actress.
Mazur was born in Los Angeles, California, the daughter of Ruby Mazur, an illustrator known for creating the "tongue" logo for the Rolling Stones, and working in the record industry as a former manager of Billy Joel. Mazur has four siblings: Nicholas, Cézanne, Matisse and Miro. Her cousin is Epic Mazur, co-frontman of the Hollywood-based band Crazy Town. Mazur is of Jewish ancestry on her father's side.
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.
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". She has appeared in a number of widely released films in the past several years, including Torque, Dead Man Running, Monster-In-Law and Just Married. She has also appeared in several television shows, including CSI: Miami, Cold Case, Jack & Jill, Strange World, Chuck, Rizzoli & Isles, and Party of Five.
Mazur joined the cast of NCIS: Los Angeles, playing Natalie Buccola (name in the actual screening changed to Natalie Giordano), a confident secret service agent who's taken with Chris O'Donnell's character, Callen. The role is potentially recurring, and she made her first appearance on the NCIS spinoff in episode 6. She also has appeared in three episodes of Castle as Gina, the publisher and ex-wife of Richard Castle, played by Nathan Fillion.
