Biography

Linds Edwards was born in Tampa, Florida as the son of Bruce and Kathi Trivette Edwards. Linds has one sibling, a brother named Brian. As a child, Linds quickly developed an imagination and ability to entertain himself. He used this ability to act out scenes from his favorite movies. His parents saw his creativity and encouraged him to pursue entertaining others as well as himself. Linds' family moved to Knoxville, Tennessee in 1994 when he was 10 years old. He played a key role in a church production, which was his first involvement with professional actors.

Linds was cast in several high school plays, many of which he opted out of and instead chose to independently pursue other venues of creativity. After he graduated from high school, he landed several key roles in productions at the Oak Ridge Playhouse. After 2 years with the Playhouse, a fellow actress introduced Linds to Brooks Benjamin, who directed Linds' first feature film debut in the award-winning horror film Point of Fear. Linds' next project was with Knoxville's well-respected director Scott W. Lee, who worked with Linds on the short film Static. After completing another string of short films including Dreams of August and Righting His Story, Linds landed a role in another feature film, the The Boys of Summerville, in 2007. Since then, Linds has completed shooting a short titled In a Blink by Dusty Clark.

Linds stars in the film Get Low and the pilot for the Golden Globe-nominated TV series The Walking Dead with Andrew Lincoln. Linds has guest-starred on Vampire Diaries. In 2011, he wrote and starred in the short Inch of Grace. He worked with Jewel on the movie Ring of Fire and with Jason Statham and James Franco on the film Homefront. He also has a role on Sundance's Rectify. Linds is continually expanding his career in various genres of film and exploring his abilities with different character types and emotions and other areas of filmmaking.
