Zoë is thrilled to be returning to the musical theatre stage after many years in television and film projects which have made her one of Australia's most loved actresses.

Zoë is perhaps best known for her role as Mel Rafter in the original cast of Packed To The Rafters (Seven Network), which garnered her a nomination for a TV Week Silver Logie for Most Popular Actress following her character's shock death that left Australian audiences heartbroken.
Zoë had previously been nominated for two TV Week Logie Awards for her lead role as Miki Mavros in the SBS comedy series, Kick.

Following Packed to the Rafters, Zoë went on to play leading lady Mary Barrett in Seven Network's period drama series Wild Boys.
For the Nine Network, Zoë played Sonya Hyde in Hyde and Seek, Mary Ann Hodge in Underbelly Files: Chopper and appeared in Love Child and the final series of Doctor Doctor. She then returned to the Seven Network to spend time in Summer Bay, where she played Dr Alex Neilson in Home and Away and, most recently, completed filming on Taika Waititi's Time Bandits for Apple TV+.

Overseas, Zoë played the lead role of McKenzie in Nicole Conn's US indie feature More Beautiful For Having Been Broken, which premiered at the Frameline Festival in San Francisco and earned her Best Actress awards at various film festivals globally.
Her other feature credits include Shane Abbess' The Osiris Child: Science Fiction Volume One, Drive Hard starring John Cusack, Fatal Honeymoon with Harvey Keitel, and Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales.

A graduate of The Victorian College of the Arts (Bachelor of Dance), earlier in her career Zoë performed in several seasons for Opera Australia and toured nationally in musicals such as Grease – The Arena Spectacular, Footloose, We Will Rock You, Oh! What A Night and Eurobeat.
Most recently Zoë played Mme Dindon in La Cage Aux Folles starring alongside Paul Capsis and Michael Cormick.
