Zoe Chien is an actor and model with 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.
