Zoé Bourdin is a French actress and writer. Her preferred pronouns are she/her/herself. She was born in Paris to French parents, but split her childhood between Houston, Texas and Calgary, Canada, before returning to Paris. She’s fluent in French, English and Spanish (and is teaching herself Italian!). At eighteen years old, she left France again (this time alone) to go pursue a BFA in Acting at NYU’s Tisch School of the Arts. She’s been training at the Atlantic Acting School, having also spent a semester abroad in London at the Royal Academy of Dramatic Arts. At Atlantic, she directed and played the role of Solange in her own condensed version of Jean Genet’s The Maids, and has most recently played Wang in Brecht’s The Good Person of Setzuan directed by Zi Alikhan at the Atlantic Stage 2. At RADA, she played Cordelia and the Fool in King Lear, and Lady Macbeth in Macbeth.
Through her acting and her many rich life experiences, Zoé’s discovered that her mission as an artist is to touch others by sharing with them the full depth and resilience of the human spirit. She wishes to reach as many people as possible and to tell as diverse stories as possible, by acting in English, French, Spanish and Italian. Her goal through her storytelling, is to disrupt, shake, heal and empower others in order to bring about questioning and change in our own lives.
