María José de Pablo Fernández

MORE Cote pix HERE!
Best-known as Mossad (Israeli Secret Service) agent Ziva David on NCIS, Cote de Pablo is actually Chilean!
Her family moved to the US while she was a child, and she attended arts-oriented schools including Carnegie Mellon University, where she majored in Theater.
Cote began her tv career as a host on the Univision series Control, but soon went on to guest appearances on several comedy and drama series, then starring roles on the short-lived The Jury, and, currently, NCIS.
Trivia: Cote performed the song "Temptation" on the NCIS episode "Last Man Standing". The complete performance is on the NCIS soundtrack cd.
She also appeared on Broadway in The Mambo Kings!
Cote is bi-lingual (Spanish-English), but uses a linguistics coach to help her with Ziva's Hebrew and Yiddish dialogue, which she does phonetically (and sounds pretty convincing). NOTE: Ziva's also been shown to speak French, German, Russian, Turkish, and Arabic, all of which Cote does phonetically.
Genre appearances include...
NCIS (Mossad Liaison Officer, now Probationary Agent Ziva David)
The Jury (Marguerite Cisneros)
TOCA Race Driver [VG] (Melanie Sanchez)
