Susanna Fournier is a Canadian actress and playwright best known for her recurring role as Zoe Gonzales on the supernatural television drama series Being Human, from 2012-2013.
Fournier developed a trilogy of plays entitled The Empire. These three epics - The Philosopher's Wife, The Scavenger's Daughter and Four Sisters - explore the development and ramifications of modern Imperialism.
Susanna's narratives chronicle Imperialism as it pervades into every aspect of contemporary life — from global empire building to the colonisation of the Body and Psyche.
Driven by her desire to abstract and examine systems of power within and between individuals, collectives and ideologies, The Empire reflects Susanna's mantra: dream big, think big, write bigger.
Susanna graduated from the National Theatre School of Canada. Her acting credits include Elizabeth Bennet in Pride and Prejudice (The Grand Theatre), Geometry in Venice (Crows Theatre/Segal Centre), True Love Lies (Factory Theatre), The Independent (Project Arts Centre Dublin), Marla's Party (Rabiayshna), You Like It (Rabiayshna), The Best Years, All Wounds and a Better Place (RUFF 2011) and Rookie Blue.
Susanna also completed an adaptation of Euripides' Medea. She also worked with Allegra Fulton on a piece entitled There is A Woman Here; Medea.
