Mercedes Masohn (/msɒn/; born Masöhn), Born 1983) is a Swedish American actress known for playing the role of Zondra in the American television series Chuck and the role of Isabel Zambada[4][5] in the American procedural drama The Finder.[6] She starred in the 2011 American horror film Quarantine 2: Terminal. She played Louise Leonard in the 2012–13 American supernatural drama 666 Park Avenue and Talia Del Campo in NCIS: Los Angeles. She was a regular on AMC's television series Fear the Walking Dead from 2015 to 2017.


Mason was one of two lead actresses in The Finder during its lone season in 2012. She played Deputy U.S. Marshal Isabel Zambada, the romantic interest of title character Walter Sherman (Geoff Stults). Both she and Maddie Hasson filled the void left by the departure of Saffron Burrows,[7] the female lead in the series' backdoor pilot which was the 19th installment of Season 6 of Bones.[8]

In 2012 she co-starred on the ABC supernatural drama series 666 Park Avenue, which was canceled midway through its season.[9][10]

In August 2015, Mason debuted in her role as Ofelia Salazar, on the Walking Dead companion series, Fear the Walking Dead.[11]

In Spring 2014, she debuted her role of DEA Special Agent Talia Del Campo on the CBS series NCIS: Los Angeles, which has since become a recurring role.

Personal life[edit]

Mason was born in Linköping, Sweden,[12] and grew up in the neighborhood of Ryd, Linköping. She moved to the United States with her family at the age of 12.[2] She was raised around the Chicago area. She currently lives in Los Angeles, California with her husband David Denman, whom she married in August 2014.[13][14][15][16]

Mason has applied for U.S. citizenship. She took the U.S. citizenship test in April 2016.[12]

In addition to English, Mason speaks Swedish, French, Spanish, and Persian.[17] However, on the Swedish talk show Skavlan on September 30 2016, she declared that she no longer speaks Swedish, but she does still understand it.
