Zarah Ferami is one of the main characters on TNT's Snowpiercer. She is portrayed by Sheila Vand.

History[edit | edit source]

Background[edit | edit source]

Zarah and Andre Layton were a couple by the time that the tragedy struck. She wanted to join the family in order to face the situation together and almost certainly die in a short time, but Andre convinced her to attempt to board Snowpiercer by force instead, which they did. She came to resent that decision, having trouble adjusting to the rigors of life as a Tailie.[1]

Throughout The Series[edit | edit source]

Helping the revolution[edit | edit source]

Zarah first makes contact with Layton after numerous years when her partner, Sean Wise, is murdered. Zarah tells Layton that she didn't know what else to do, and Layton accepts this but remarks that the two are very different people. Zarah promises to cooperate fully with Layton's investigation, but remains a regular in the nightcar.[2]

Zarah helps the revolution again when she harbours Layton whilst he is on the run from Melanie Cavill. Layton is furious with her, but she agrees not to tell Melanie where Layton is.[3] She is later forced to change her decision, when she is confronted by Melanie about Layton's escape, threatening to kill her unborn child. She then outs Josie in the Tail and gets her arrested. Zarah was not present during Josie's interrogation.[4] In Old Ways, Old Wars, she is seen talking to Andre about her and his unborn child.
