Although she grew up in Santa Cruz, CA, these days Zoë Winters is all about (and all around) New York City. After graduating from Conservatory of Theatre Arts with a BFA and the Dean’s Award for Acting, Winters quickly began performing on NYC stages. In 2016, she performed in “The Harvest” at LCT3/Lincoln Center Theater, “Small Mouth Sounds” at Signature Theatre, and “Red Speedo” at NYTW.
Winters continued to perform for New York audiences in Lincoln Center’s “Shows for Days,” “Much Ado About Nothing,” at The Public Theater’s Shakespeare in the Park, Soho Rep’s Obie Award-winning “An Octoroon,” and NYTW’s production of Caryl Churchill’s “Love and Information.”
Winters created the role of “Bec” in Amy Herzog’s award-winning “4000 Miles” at Lincoln Center, for which the New York Times said she was “excellent”; The New York Post called her “pitch perfect”; and Time Out described her “beautifully realized turns.” Other of Winters’ performances include the New York Times Critics’ pick “Hater” (Ohio Theatre), “Love Song” (59E59), and “Swimming Legs,” a self-written one woman show.
Winters has worked at the Country’s top regional theatres including Westport Country Playhouse, The Old Globe, Baltimore Center Stage, Alliance, Paper Mill Playhouse, Seattle Rep, Merrimack Rep, and Magic Theatre.
On TV, Winters has played roles on shows such as “Elementary,” “Law & Order,” “Gossip Girl,” “Army Wives,” and “Ugly Betty.” Film credits include indie films Gray Dog, In the Family, Under and the Sundance short Giant.
“Winters…one to watch out for - zesty, zany and vibrant, she completely reinvents herself with each new character.” — Time Out New York
“Give this girl a vehicle already! Zoë Winters shined as an efficient sports therapist in “Red Speedo,” a peppily manipulative religious leader in “The Harvest” and a hot mess grouchily attending a silent retreat in “Small Mouth Sounds.” While this team player strives in ensembles, her droll humor and Swiss-quality timing make her ready for a lead.” —New York Times, Elisabeth Vincentelli
