Perhaps blond Girls have more fun?Zosia Mamet, 23, who plays the earnest, over-eager, fashion-loving Shoshanna on the runaway hit Girls, has dyed her trademark chestnut hair strawberry blond.She lightened up for a role in Paul Downs Colaizzo's Really Really, opening Off-Broadway Jan. 31, a comedy about friends in the aftermath of an especially raucous party.
Even though her father is renowned playwright David Mamet, the unconventionally pretty actress hasn't had a particularly easy time breaking into the acting business. She recalled casting appointments, when "the look on those people's faces was one of confusion: 'What WAS that?" Sometimes a director or a writer or a casting director would fight for me, but the producer or studio executive would be like, 'No! We can't sell her.' "
