Linda attended the Interlochen Arts Academy, and later went to the Goodman School of Drama located in Chicago. Around this time she had already been exposed to acting opportunities such as “Flibbertigibbet”, which was her first production at the age of 12. While studying, she had originally planned to be a stage director, because she thought that her physical height would limit her opportunities. This was proven wrong, and her film career started in 1980 with the musical comedy entitled “Popeye”. Around two years later she would earn international recognition in the film “The Year of Living Dangerously”, which was an adaptation of the Christopher Koch novel; she won an Academy Award for Best Supporting Actress, the first person to win a role for portraying the opposite sex. Her career in film continued with “She-Devil” and “Kindergarten Cop” in which she starred alongside Arnold Schwarzenegger. A lot of her more recent works focused on television, appearing in series such as “The Practice” and “Without the Trace”. One of her most recent roles is on “NCIS: Los Angeles” which stars Chris O’Donnell and LL Cool J. She also did narrations of “The American Experience”.

Along with her film and television career, she has also done theatre work, such as productions of “Aunt Dan and Lemon” and “Doubt”. One of her most acclaimed performances was in a production of “Mother Courage and Her Children”. She also appeared in “Top Girls”, and her various roles have won her a Tony Award nomination and two Oble Awards.

Linda has also been well known for her voice work, and she has lent her voice to animations, commercials and documentaries. She’s also hosted radio shows, doing interviews with various celebrities. She was the voice of Grandmother Willow in “Pocahontas” and she even narrated the “God of War” video game franchise. Aside from these, her voice is heard in “Carnivale”, along with various documentaries such as “The Great Indian Railway” and “Christmas in Yellowstone”.

For her personal life, it is known that Linda was diagnosed with hypopituitary dwarfism which is the reason for her smaller height. She is also a lesbian and is married to her wife Karen Klein. While her last name might be associated with other actresses such as Helen Hunt and Bonnie Hunt, there is no direct relationship between them.
