From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Zoë Poledouris is an actress and film composer, daughter of a film composer Basil Poledouris.


The elder of Basil Poledouris' two daughters, Zoë was born on August 25, 1973 in Los Angeles. She grew up interpreting her father's music with movement on ice as a competitive figure skater. At the age of nine years, she performed a piece on the recorder for her father which became the french horn counter-melody for "the orgy", which was featured in Conan the Barbarian (1982). Zoë received co-writing credit and become one of the youngest members of BMI.

Following her graduation from Bennington College, Zoë presented demos of her songs to friend and film composer Christopher Tyng, who helped to further produce her songs. One of these songs, a curious dance number called "Into It", was chosen by director Paul Verhoeven to be performed in Starship Troopers and also "I Have Not Been To Oxford Town" (1997), a cover of a David Bowie song. Zoë also makes a cameo appearance in "Starship Troopers" at a school dance. Other films that feature samples of Zoë's work include Cecil B. DeMented (2000) and Shadow of Doubt (1998). Down and Out with the Dolls (2001) not only features Zoë's score music but also features her in a starring role.

Zoë is currently writing and performing music with her husband in their Los Angeles based band, LOONER.
