Acting rolesEdit

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

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 saying became part of the Australian lexicon for many years with people rhetorically quoting it when talking about any monetary issue.

Carides' first major role was the 1991 film Death in Brunswick as the love interest of Sam Neil's lead character.[5] 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.[6]

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.[4]

In 2005, Carides starred in the Sydney Theatre Company's Influence, by David Williamson, for which she won a Helpmann Award.[7][8] In 2008, she played the part of Pia Jones in the BBC-commissioned Australian soap opera Out of the Blue.[9]

She has also directed two short films; Gifted in 2005, and Not even a Mouse in 2011[10]

In 2015, Carides appeared in the film Alex & Eve, which was based on the 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).[11]

She released an album of self written songs, When I was Little, in 2018.[3]
