A blue-eyed actress whose brazen characters tend to bear the stamp of her distinctive New York accent, Debi Mazar was born in Queens Aug. 15, 1964. She began her career behind the scenes, working as a makeup artist and dancer who appeared in several of Madonna's music videos, and made her big-screen debut as Ray Liotta's coke-addled gal pal in GoodFellas (1990).

Since then, Mazar has worked regularly in television and film, building a résumé that dips into a variety of genres that includes comedy, drama and horror. Although she's appeared in dozens of movies, she's more often remembered for the quirky characters she's created on television shows such as "Civil Wars," "L.A. Law," "Entourage" and "Ugly Betty."

Video gamers may also recognize Mazar's voice from a pair of modern-day classics: Grand Theft Auto III and Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas.
