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)

Jennifer O'Dell

Jennifer O'Dell started acting at the age of 8 and did a range of commercials, tv guest appearances and minor film roles until her early 20s.
Jennifer finally secured a starring role as the scantly-clad Veronica in the tv version of The Lost World playing a character not in the original novel or any prevous tv or film version! (And, IMHO, she was the best thing about the series, easily outshining the cheesy "special effects"!)
Since the show's never-resolved cliffhanger demise, she's been doing guest shots on everything from comedies like Two and a Half Men to genre shows as well as featured roles in a variety of movies, usually scantly-clad (not that I'm complaining).

Trivia: She's actually a brunette, but most of her roles (including Veronica) show her as blonde.
