Mara is of Italian (from her maternal grandmother) and Irish descent; her family name used to be O’Mara. Mara’s mother got the name and address of a management company, sent in a photograph, and Mara signed with her first agent, beginning her professional career at the age of 14. Mara landed two recurring roles in 2003, as Kate on Everwood, an 18-year-old who is impregnated by her piano teacher and then gets an abortion, and as Vanessa on Nip/Tuck, a bisexual cheerleader involved in a love triangle with her boyfriend Matt McNamara (John Hensley) and another cheerleader (Sophia Bush). Mara filmed four episodes for the series; her first episode aired on August 23, 2009. Mara debuted theatrically in 2003 at the Williamstown Theatre Festival in John Guare’s Landscape of the Body with Lili Taylor. Mara told WFAN radio in 2006 that doing more theater work is a “dream” because it was “all I really wanted to do as a kid. I didn’t care about movies or tv, I just wanted to do Broadway”.
