Zoe is excited to announce she will be reprising her role in Meth, which won a finalist slot in 3Girls Theatre Company's Salon Series and will be a part of the 2020 New Works Festival, now rescheduled for next year. She has also been cast in The Dragon Theatre's production of Caught by Obie-winning playwright Christopher Chen. Due to current shelter-in-place recommendations, this production has been pushed to 2021.
Zoe is thrilled to have recently finished shooting a national true-crime television show, scheduled to air in 2021. You can also see Zoe in the new Honeylove Shapewear ad, and in 3Girls Theatre Company's online reading of Horseman: The True Story of Sleepy Hollow, a new play by Bill Bilvins, directed by Mary Powelson.
Zoe Chien holds a BFA in Theater from NYU's Tisch School of the Arts, where she trained at The Lee Strasberg Theater and Film Institute, Playwrights Horizons Theater School, and the Stonestreet Studios for Television and Film.
She feels lucky to be an actor in a time when so much art is being made in response to our social and political climate. As a woman of mixed race (Taiwanese and Italian-American), Zoe is especially inspired by projects that celebrate women and diversity.
