She worked with Josh Fox and his troupe for several years. Josh Fox is a renowned and Academy Award-nominated director. After about six years, Wilde got her green card and decided to focus more on the screen rather than the stage.
She was in Madoff, starring Richard Dreyfus. She also appeared in the film Chuck, an indie production featuring big-name actors like Naomi Watts and Liev Schrieber. Other important credits include Rescue Me and The Blacklist.
She was cast in Billions as an assistant, and her character would be a constant presence across all seasons, probably more as the show continues at the moment of this writing. Billions is a Wall Street drama that touches on themes of financial crime and wealth. It stars Damian Lewis as hedge fund manager Axelrod and Paul Giamatti as his counterpart, attorney Chuck Rhoades, Jr. Wilde plays Helena, Axelrod’s secretary.

Zina Wilde is credited on some of her work as Zina Anaplioti.
On her role in Billions, Wilde describes it feeling like a dream thanks to her coworkers. She got to work with John Malkovich, one of her idols in the field of acting, which was an amazing experience, according to her.
Wilde is also a certified Life Coach.
While out of the country for her wedding, a clerical mistake made Wilde ineligible to return to the United States, which was a shock, as she had worked for many years to build her career there. Fortunately, she managed to resolve the situation and used her experience, as well as her overall experiences as an immigrant, to fuel her creativity and make her films.
