Zoë – and this website – at 21

As’s regular visitors will know, the website recently celebrated its 21st birthday (hooray and oh, my goodness!)

That milestone got me thinking... Wouldn’t it be fantastic to see Zoë around the age of 21, when she was at the very beginning of her professional acting career?

To that end, Zoë and her PA, Vanessa, have kindly provided a lovely photo from that exciting time in her life. Here’s Zoë as a fledgling actress with so many wonderful roles on the horizon. (You can click on the image to see a larger version.)

And to round off this article, here’s a photo that’ll be of much less interest to Zoë’s fans, but it felt fitting to include it. The photo shows me at 21, just after I’d finished my final exams at university. I’d only been running the website for four years at that point. Time flies!
