A year later, she became a regular cast member on the show “The Guard”, which follows the lives of four characters who work as coastguards, their professional struggles, personal lives, with themes of family, addiction and coping with post-traumatic stress. disorder (PTSD).
The show lasted for two seasons before being put on hiatus as it failed to attract expected numbers, eventually leading to its cancellation.

The film tells the story of a woman who guards a thief who is hospitalized, only to encounter the thief’s partners who will stop at nothing to reach their partner.
Lost Girl – Early 2010s
In 2010, Zoie had one of her most notable roles when 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 is said to be the main love interest of the succubus played by Anna Silk. Their on-screen romance received a lot of attention and was even named as one of the best television couples by several publications. The show received positive reviews during its run.
Zoie also had several other projects, including the movie “Sex After Kids,” which tells the story of several adults who struggle to return to their normal sex lives while coping with the responsibilities of parenthood. She also made guest appearances on 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.

Dark matter and recent projects
After the end of “Lost Girl,” Palmer quickly moved on to 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 wake up in a ship with no memories of their past.

She has a few projects yet to be released, including the movie “Spiral‘, which has completed production, and is the ninth installment of the horror franchise ‘Saw’ starring Chris Rock and Samuel L.
