Girls star Zosia Mamet's new $1million love nest as she moves in with actor lover


Girls star Zosia Mamet has splashed out more than $1million on a new home in Brooklyn's trendy Bushwick - where she filmed one of the most critically acclaimed episodes of the HBO hit, MailOnline can reveal.

The 25-year-old brunette, who plays Shoshanna Shapiro, has moved in with her boyfriend, actor Evan Jonigkeit and the couple are busy currently renovating the three-storey house, which they bought for $1.037million in November.


Zosia gave a knockout performance in the Season 1 episode, Welcome to Bushwick: a.k.a. The Crackcident, where Shoshanna inadvertently takes a hit from a crack pipe - and ends up running down the street half-naked.

Daughter of feted playwright David Mamet and his ex-wife, actress Lindsay Crouse, Zosia had roles in Mad Men and United States of Tara before winning her part in Lena Dunham's Girls.

She met boyfriend Evan while starring in off-Broadway play, Really, Really last year - and the pair have been inseparable ever since.

Evan, 30, even briefly appears in the first episode of the new third season of Girls - when Shoshanna wakes up in his arms following a one-night stand, only to find herself in his bunk bed.

Banned from watching American TV by her dad while growing up, Zosia recently told The Guardian: 'I honestly didn't even own a TV until I met my boyfriend.'

Although it's as yet unknown if Evan returns during the season, speaking at the London premiere of Girls last week, he said he loved teaming up with Zosia, adding: 'We met working together so it is old hat for us. It is a chance for us to flex our creativity muscles together and have some fun.

The actor will this summer also be seen in the hotly anticipated X-Men prequel sequel Days Of Future Past where he plays the villainous character Toad, appearing alongside Oscar winner Jennifer Lawrence, Hugh Jackman, Michael Fassbender and Halle Berry.

Admitting she was 'completely unprepared' for Girls' success, Zosia said she knew the show was a hit when fans started approaching her in the street and regaling her with tales of their own sex lives.

She told The Guardian: 'They feel like they can tell us anything. I've had people say crazy shit to me. Like, I had a girl come up to me and thank me, because she said she and her boyfriend have sex after they watch the show, and then she told me she was worried about what would happen to their sex lives when the show goes off the air.'

Last year, she attempted to raise $32,000 on Kickstarter to make a video for her band Cabin Sisters - with her younger sister Clara – or, as their Kickstarter page put it, 'realise through the visual artistry of some very talented people the universal feeling of unrequited love'.

However, their appeal kicked off a row about successful actors appealing for funds through a crowdsourcing website, and only $2,783 was raised - which Zosia says she didn't take 'to heart'.

But Zosia says she still has ambitions for her band - despite being signed up to film season 4 of Girls later this year.
