Zoe Carides (born 19 February 1962) is an Australian actress of film and television, who is best known for her roles in Death in Brunswick as Sophie, G. P. as Dr. Sonia Kapek and Grass Roots as Liz Murray. Carides was born in Sydney,[2] to an English mother and Greek father.


She has a daughter named Paris. Her sister is actress Gia Carides who also appeared in Police Rescue. Her brother-in-law was actor Anthony LaPaglia.

Acting roles[edit]

Carides has made cameos in many successful Australian television shows, such as All Saints, Acropolis Now, White Collar Blue, Crownies, Janet King, Rake, and the upcoming Top of the Lake 2.

Zoe also appeared in the iconic 1980's advertisement for the State Bank of Victoria where as she sit in her bed with her partner, she turns and says "it's your money Ralph". This iconic saying became part of the Australian lexicon for many years with people rhetorically quoting it when talking about any monetary issue.

Carides' first big movie was the 1991 film Death in Brunswick. She also went on to star in Brilliant Lies, which won her an AFI nomination, The Kiss and Police Rescue. She also starred in the independent Australian production of Beware of Greeks Bearing Guns.[3]

After turning 40, Carides set two goals: She wanted to have a solo exhibition of her paintings and to record an album of her own music.[1]

In 2005, Carides starred in the Sydney Theatre Company’s Influence, by David Williamson, for which she won a Helpmann Award. In 2008, she played the part of Pia Jones in the BBC-commissioned Australian soap opera Out of the Blue.

In 2015, Carides played Chloe in the movie Alex & Eve, based on the hit Australian play by Alex Lykos. She plays Chloe, the mother of Greek Alex, (played by Richard Brancatisano), who falls in love with Muslim Lebanese Eve, (played by Andrea Demetriades). It also stars Tony Nikolakopoulos, Alex Lykos and George Kapiniaris.
