Early life

De Pablo was born in Santiago, Chile, to Francisco de Pablo and María Olga Fernández. [2] [3] She has a younger sister, [4] Andrea, and a brother, Francisco, who works as a disc jockey. [5] When de Pablo was 10 years old, her mother, María Olga Fernández, took a job in Miami, Florida, at a Spanish-language television network. There, de Pablo attended Arvida Middle School and New World School of the Arts, where she studied musical theatre. In the fifth grade, she found many people could not pronounce her first name of "María José", so she asked them to call her "Coté", a common Chilean nickname for María José. [6] De Pablo attended Carnegie Mellon University in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, where she studied music and theater and appeared in several plays, including And the World Goes 'Round,The House of Bernarda Alba,Indiscretions, The Fantasticks, and A Little Night Music. She graduated in 2000 with a Bachelor of Fine Arts in Musical Theater. [7]

Disc jockey person who plays recorded music for an audience

A disc jockey, often abbreviated as DJ, is a person who plays existing recorded music for a live audience. Most common types of DJs include radio DJ, club DJ who performs at a nightclub or music festival and turntablist who uses record players, usually turntables, to manipulate sounds on phonograph records. Originally, the disc in disc jockey referred to gramophone records, but now DJ is used as an all-encompassing term to describe someone who mixes recorded music from any source, including cassettes, CDs or digital audio files on a CDJ or laptop. The title DJ is commonly used by DJs in front of their real names or adopted pseudonyms or stage names. In recent years it has become common for DJs to be featured as the credited artist on tracks they produced despite having a guest vocalist that performs the entire song: like for example Uptown Funk.

A television network is a telecommunications network for distribution of television program content, whereby a central operation provides programming to many television stations or pay television providers. Until the mid-1980s, television programming in most countries of the world was dominated by a small number of terrestrial networks.

She picked up parts in the New York City Public Theater, on the TV show All My Children, and in commercials.

Indian cuisine regional cuisines native to India

Indian cuisine consists of a wide variety of regional and traditional cuisines native to the Indian subcontinent. Given the range of diversity in soil type, climate, culture, ethnic groups, and occupations, these cuisines vary substantially from each other and use locally available spices, herbs, vegetables, and fruits. Indian food is also heavily influenced by religion, in particular Hindu, cultural choices and traditions. The cuisine is also influenced by centuries of Islamic rule, particularly the Mughal rule. Samosas and pilafs can be regarded as examples.

NCIS

Cote de Pablo is primarily known for her portrayal of Ziva David, an Israeli Mossad officer turned NCIS agent, in the police procedural drama NCIS. She had sent in a videotape audition while waiting for The Mambo Kings to move forward and was asked to fly to Los Angeles for a screen test two days after it was canceled. [4] [10] Network executives arranged for her to act alongside series regular Michael Weatherly to test for chemistry during her second audition; he went offscript by brushing her hair back and commenting, "You remind me of Salma Hayek". De Pablo's response to Weatherly was to stay in character and she "dismissed him completely". Afterwards, producer Donald Bellisario met with her as she was waiting for a cab to take her back to the airport, telling her she had landed the part. [10] [11]

De Pablo described the character as "someone completely different from anyone else on the show because she's been around men all her life; she's used to men of authority. She's not afraid of men." [12]

In 2006, she won an Imagen Award at the Imagen Foundation Awards for Best Supporting Actress in Television for NCIS. In 2008 and 2009, she was nominated for the same award. Also in 2008 and 2009, she was nominated for an ALMA Award for Outstanding Actress in a Drama Television Series. In 2011, de Pablo was nominated once again for an Imagen Award, but this time it was for Best Actress in Television, not Supporting Actress. She won the 2011 ALMA Award for Favorite Television Actress—Leading Role in Drama. [13]

On July 10, 2013, it was reported by CBS that de Pablo would be leaving NCIS for undisclosed reasons, although she remained on long enough to conclude her character Ziva David's storyline at the beginning of season 11. [14] De Pablo later told Cindy Elavsky that Ziva could come back because she did not die. [15] However, in the season 13 finale of the series, it was stated that her character had apparently died in an explosion in Israel. [16] Three years later in 2019, the thirteenth season 16 episode 'She' revealed that Ziva is alive and has gone into hiding off-screen.

After NCIS

In January 2014, de Pablo was announced to have been cast in the film The 33 , about the 2010 Copiapó mining accident, as the wife of one of the miners. [17] She was also cast in the 2015 CBS miniseries, titled The Dovekeepers , based on the Alice Hoffman novel. [18] In March 2016, Deadline Hollywood reported de Pablo is slated to return to series television as Laura Kale in Syfy's thriller-drama, Prototype, pending negotiations. [19] In April 2016, TVLine columnist Matt Mitovich confirmed Cote's return to series television. [20] The show was to feature "three unlikely colleagues—two of them played by de Pablo and Jack Davenport—who inadvertently stumble upon an invention that challenges the very nature of quantum physics—a discovery which in turn puts their lives in grave danger." [21] In August 2016 Deadline reported that Syfy passed on the show.

On August 28, 2018 Deadline announced that de Pablo and former NCIS castmate, Michael Weatherly, would be the executive producers of the upcoming CBS detective drama MIA, written by Shepard Boucher. [22]

Music

De Pablo performed a portion of Tom Waits' song "Temptation" on the NCIS episode "Last Man Standing", which first aired in the U.S. on September 23, 2008. Her full performance of the song, including some lyrics in French, appears for the first time on NCIS: The Official TV Soundtrack , which was released on February 10, 2009.

She is also the singer in Roberto Pitre's Vivo en vida where she sings "Samba in Prelude" and "Cry Me a River". [23]

Cote was also featured on The 33 official soundtrack, singing Gracias a la Vida. [24]

Personal life

De Pablo was in a long-term relationship with actor Diego Serrano, [25] but they were reported as having broken up in June 2015. [26]

As of 2011, she resides in Los Angeles, California. [27] [28]
