Born and raised in New York City, Zoé Girod is the daughter of French/Swiss parents and grew up bilingual in French and English. Her passion for acting emerged in her early teens through school performances and training with The Arts Effect Theater. She received the Best Female Actress Award as Eve in Et Dieu Créa la Femme at LFNY’s Première Scène Theatre Festival. Academically driven, Zoé considered numerous paths—physics being one of them—but her drama training at LaGuardia High School set her on an unstoppable trajectory: she would be an actor. She chose Rutgers to pursue her BFA in acting, drawn to its Meisner training and its conservatory at Shakespeare’s Globe in London. A gifted visual artist and a lover of dance, Zoé writes, shoots, and edits films. Throughout COVID-19, she worked as the editor for The Peace Studio, a foundation promoting peace through the arts.
Zoé recently played Agatha in The Moors, Malvolio in Twelfth Night at Shakespeare’s Globe, Agnès Sorel in Joan of Arc, and Juror #1/Foreman in Twelve Angry Jurors. Her film work includes Hannah in I’m Here, for which she was nominated Best Supporting Actress by Indie Short Fest, Los Angeles. She appears as Young Starlet in Hulu’s drama miniseries, Pam & Tommy.
