In June 2008, the movie The Waiting Room was released; the film explores how we care about our very young and our very old. Zoe plays a woman cheated on by her husband (Rupert Graves) with her best friend (Anne-Marie Duff).
Zoe: (On why she chose to star in The Waiting Room) The people. It's really nice to be working with good people. They're thoughtful and intelligent actors. We had a lot of fun doing it, I was very happy doing it.
Zoe: (Speaking about Stephen Fry with whom she worked with on Absolute Power He is absolutely a font of knowledge. He's much ruder than you'd expect him to be, actually. He told me possibly the rudest joke I've ever heard in my life and I'm not going to repeat it! But he is a very nice man.
