Zoë Tamerlis Lund (February 9, 1962 - April 16, 1999), also known as Zoë Tamerlis (maiden name) and Zoë Tamerlaine, was a former American musician turned model, actress, and screenwriter. She was best known for her association with Abel Ferrara, in whose movie Ms. 45 she starred. Some of her other acting work included a guest spot on Miami Vice and Larry Cohen's Special Effects.

She was born to a Swedish mother and Romanian father.

Lund co-wrote the screenplay for Bad Lieutenant, and left behind much unpublished material. Although she had never met supermodel Gia Carangi, she was working on a biographical screenplay of Carangi's life at the time of her death, and she appeared posthumously in the documentary The Self-Destruction of Gia.

Lund died in Paris on April 16, 1999, from heart failure due to extended cocaine use.

A photograph of Lund taken by husband Robert Lund appears on the cover of the Bodega System CD Blood Pyx (2007).
