Born in Los Angeles, Lindsay moved with her family to Portland, Oregon and appeared in high school plays. After high school she attended the University of Oregon.
“I started taking acting classes when I was 12. It turned out to be sort of like therapy for me,” she told the website www.teentalkingcircles.com. “I was working on a good case of ulcers from the time I was 14 until I was 20. When I started acting…it was like someone had taken a knife and lanced this huge swollen wound inside me. Finally I had a place where I could express my pain and I felt safe… I think acting kept me alive back then.;”
Lindsay moved back to LA and worked as a model. She made her first TV appearance as a hostess in “Playboy After Dark.” As a contract player for Universal Studios, she made her prime-time TV debut in “Adam-12” and then appeared in episodes of “Marcus Welby, MD” and “The Rockford Files.”
Before “The Bionic Woman,” Lindsay acted in three films, most notably “The Paper Chase” in 1973.
Since the series ended, Lindsay has starred in more than 40 TV movies.
“What always interested me about film and television is the ability to tell a story that would not only entertain but possibly help someone,” she said in the LA Yoga magazine article. “For me the passion is communication. I am grateful for the good fortune to have the power to choose my projects and work with the scripts to enhance the potency of the issues being explored in the film.”
