Personal Quote:

It's wonderful that a show that's so normal could go on for so long. It's not cutting-edge, but it has still struck a chord, because everyone can sit down and watch it without being offended. It's gentle, warm and loving. (On My Family (2000)) See more »

Trivia:

Zoë became a British Citizen in 2000 so she could receive a CBE at Buckingham Palace rather than, as a US citizen, receive her decoration from the foreign secretary. See more »

Trademark:

She has a unique buttoned nose

Taurus
