It’s a mystery adventure horror directed by André Øvredal and written by Kevin Hageman, Guillermo del Toro and Dan Hageman, based on the novel of the same title by Alvin Schwartz.

Early life, family, and education
Zoe Colletti was raised in Burlington by her parents – Cheryl Colletti, her mother, is of Dutch-German descent, while her father, Christopher Colletti, originates from the Sicilian-Dutch genealogy.
She has one older brother whose name is Ian Colletti, who is also an actor, and is perhaps mostly known for his roles in “Baby Mama”, “Phoebe in Wonderland” and “Preacher”.
He was Zoe’s inspiration to launch her acting career, as she looked up to him, and Ian is very proud and supportive of his little sister. They still haven’t acted together in any movies or TV series, but have performed several melodies at various events.
Zoe attended a local high school, and upon matriculating in 2020, she didn’t enroll at college. As with many other actresses, Zoe started her career as a model and then slowly paved her way into the acting world. Her first appearance was in the 2006 movie “American Man”, a comedy directed by Rob Schiller.
Roles in TV series
In 2010 she appeared in three series – “Mercy”, “Past Life” and “Rubicon”.
She first acted as Cydie in the drama series “Mercy”, created by Liz Heldens, and she then appeared as Elana Moody, in an episode of the mystery crime drama “Past Life”, which is about a couple who are helping their clients solve their past life’s mysteries as to fix the problems in their current life. Afterwards, she was cast to play Sophie Young, in four episodes of another mystery crime drama “Rubicon”, which was nominated for a Primetime Emmy Award.

In 2020 and 2021, Zoe starred as Dakota, in the sci-fi horror drama “Fear the Walking Dead”, a spin-off from the popular TV series “The Walking Dead” set in Los Angeles, California, and later on in Mexico.

The movie had 18 award nominations and three wins, one for the worst remake or sequel of a movie, because the original “Annie” in 1982 was nominated for two Oscars, so difficult to surpass.
In 2018, Zoe acted alongside Jake Gyllenhaal in the drama “Wildlife”, directed by Paul Dano and which won six awards. In the same year, she was cast to play Desiree in the biographical drama “Skin”, which is about a young skinhead who decides to leave the supremacist movement and stop being racist, while working unusual jobs with illegal workers.
