"She has the kind of star quality that you notice the moment she walks on stage."
- Terry Teachout, Wall Street Journal
Zoë Laiz (she/her) is a Filipina-Jewish actor based out of New York City and Western Massachusetts. She was introduced to acting at an early age through the education programs of Shakespeare & Company, where her love for theatre began. She moved to New York City after high school to study at the Stella Adler Studio of Acting, and has since worked professionally in New York and regionally.
Zoë will approach any role with dedication and enthusiasm, but gravitates towards comedic roles; playing snarky millennials, ditzy optimists, lovable loudmouths and two-faced villains.
Zoë is a member of the Actors' Equity Association. She is a member of the rig, a community arts collective based in Western MA. She is passionate about collaboration, representation, and social, racial, and environmental justice. (You can read her piece on accountability in the theatre here.)
