Zoe Tamerlis Lund

When she died in 1999 of heart failure caused by years of drug use, she went by her married name, Zoe Lund, but throughout most of her short film career she was better known as Zoe Tamerlis.

It appeared that when she died at age 37, she was doing more writing than acting, but based on her powerful performance as a mute rape victim in her first film, Ms 45, Zoe Tamerlis had Oscar caliber talent.

She played two vastly different roles in her second film, Special Effects, which proved that she was an up-and-coming talent to watch. Some television work came next followed by the movie Bad Lieutenant, which she wrote.

From what I know of Zoe Tamerlis Lund, she was a bit of a free spirit whose work, whether it be acting or writing, fell more on the "performance artist" side. Either way, she was an interesting actress that sadly the world never got to know.
