She is conscious of the power dynamic of body language. She makes other people uncomfortable and she knows it. Under the pressure of growing up black and frustrated in an elite Northeastern private-school culture, she has learned to carefully control herself to wield maximum power and impact—she can hold someone’s gaze without fidgeting. Zoe speaks and carries herself almost like a prophet…like Cassandra. She sees herself as a vessel of truth, bravely standing up to authority figures. Zoe also has incredible warmth. Actor 15: Female, 18+, for "Wild Horses" in her 50’s but there’s a childlike quality to her. She is warm, funny, wary; stubborn and righteous. She is a good friend and a good liar. She dresses right, but slightly subversively. She has never forgotten her “wild side.” If she died she would want to come back as Joni Mitchell. She is a rule breaker.
