Zoe Levin is an up-and-coming actress who has already graced the screens in "Red Band Society" and the film "Palo Alto," among other projects.
Before Zoe Levin landed her first role in local theater, she grew up ice-skating and taking gymnastics in Chicago. In high school, she was named Most Likely to Win an Oscar. She said, "I did one movie ["Trust"] in high school. And a lot of plays."
As for her training in theatre, she said, "I did a lot of theater in Chicago, that’s where I started, so that trial and error thing really helped me, because during rehearsals, you do the scene a million which ways, and that was really shocking for me, when I went into film that it wasn’t that. You just do the scene."
As for the roles she likes, Zoe Levin said, "For some reason, I’m always drawn to those girls who are so deeply insecure and they need to be loved in some way that they reach out in different ways."
As for playing "mean girls," she says she was never one in high school. "But I love to explore that side of those characters, that gray area and their insecurities—the reason why they’re mean. My mom would always say, ‘You don’t know what’s going on behind closed doors.’”
As for her career, Zoe Levin said, "I’m kind of experimenting and trying to do everything I can. My philosophy is 'If I like something, I’m gonna do it.' I don’t really care if some people are like 'Oh, so-and-so only does this type of movie' and 'so-and-so only does TV.' I don’t think you should just be labeled down to whatever. It’s about having fun and doing good work."
Zoe Levin currently resides in Los Angeles.
