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.
