As of early-2020, Zoie Palmer’s net worth is estimated to be over $2 million, earned through a successful career in the entertainment industry since 2002, and has also done various film projects apart from her television work.


Early Life, Education, and Career Beginnings

Zoie is of Irish and British descent; she grew up in England, but her family later relocated to and settled in Canada, where she took up her education. She attended the Sacred Heart Catholic High School located in Ontario and there she developed her interest in acting. She experienced her first professional endeavor working in a summer stock theatre in a nearby area.

After matriculating from high school, she enrolled at Toronto’s York University, where she studied for a degree in Fine Arts, which is known for containing courses in acting as with similar programs in many universities around the world.

The university is one of the most internationally recognized from Canada, and is also home to the oldest film school in the country. She started her career by working on several television movies, including “The Reagans” and “Out of the Ashes”. She also made a few guest appearances in television shows, and then made her feature film debut in “Godsend” after working on a couple of shorts.

Rise to Prominence

In 2006, Palmer had her first recurring role as she was cast in “Instant Star”, appearing as the character, Patsy Sewer.

The Canadian show follows the life of music competition winner Jude Harrison as he adjusts to life being a professional music artist. The show was nominated for several awards during its four-year run, though she was only with the show for a year.

A year later she became a regular cast member in the show “The Guard”, which follows the lives of four characters working as coast guards, their professional struggles, personal lives, with themes of family, addiction, and dealing with post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD).

The show ran for two seasons before it was put on hiatus, as it didn’t attract the expected numbers, which eventually led to its cancellation. She then returned to films, the horror flick “Devil” and afterward was cast in “Cold Blooded”, which saw her work with Ryan Robbins and Sergio DI Zio. The film tells the story of a woman guarding a thief who has been hospitalized, only to encounter the thief’s partners who will stop at nothing to try and get to their partner.

Lost Girl – The Early 2010s

In 2010, Zoie had one of her most notable roles as she was cast in the supernatural series “Lost Girl”, which follows the life of a bisexual succubus who must learn about her powers and use them to help others, and the truth behind her identity.

Her character would be the main love interest of the succubus played by Anna Silk. Their on-screen romance gained a lot of attention and was even named as one of the top television couples by several publications. The show received positive reviews during its run.

Zoie had several other projects too, including the film “Sex After Kids” which tells the story of various adults who experience troubles returning to their normal sex lives wile coping with the responsibilities of being a parent. She also made guest appearances in other programs such as “Murdoch Mysteries”, “Nikita”, and “Flashpoint”. She was very active as a cast member of “Lost Girl” often appearing in television specials and events held for the show.

She also had a few other independent projects such as the film “Patch Town”.

Dark Matter and Recent Projects

After the end of “Lost Girl”, Palmer quickly got into another project, cast as one of the main characters in “Dark Matter”, portraying the Android. The show is based on the comic book series of the same name and ran for three seasons. It tells the story of people who awaken in a ship with no memories of their past. The show progresses with the characters finding out more about their identities while trying to survive deep space. The show was canceled after its third season as it didn’t have enough support to continue.

After the show, she returned to doing guest work on television shows. Some of her recent appearances include “Wynonna Earp”, “Pure”, and “Taken”. In 2019, she played the role of Max in the sitcom “Jann”, alongside Patrick Gilmore and Jason Blicker. She has a few projects that have yet to be released including the film “Spiral” which has finished production, and is the ninth installment of the horror franchise “Saw” starring Chris Rock and Samuel L. Jackson. Rock was responsible for creating this new film, as he felt that exploring horror films would be a step in a different direction for his career.

Personal Life

A lot of people suspected that Zoie was either a lesbian or bisexual due to her comfort in portraying the love interest of the lead character in “Lost Girl”, and her chemistry with Anna Silk. A year before the show’s end, she came out publicly as lesbian, announcing it during the 2nd Canadian Screen Awards. She also revealed that she was in a relationship with film producer Alex Lalonde. Her partner was previously married and had a son from that marriage which ended in divorce. She also has a few connections in politics, particularly her sister who is a member of the Progressive Conservative Party of Ontario.
