Linda Kelsey was born on July 28 in Minneapolis, Minn. As a fellowship alumna of the University of Minnesota's graduate drama department, Miss Kelsey joined the Guthrie Theater Company in Minneapolis. There, she played Miranda in "The Tempest," Theresa in 'The Hostage," and Maggie in "The Winners."
Miss Kelsey then went to Los Angeles, where she got guest-starring roles on such television series as "Emergency," "The Rookies," "Harry O," "The Rockford Files," "Barnaby Jones," "Doc" and 'The Mary Tyler Moore Show." She also starred in "A Perfect Match," a motion picture-for-television presented on CBS.
She co-starred on the television specials "Eleanor and Franklin," "Something for Joey" and "The Picture of Dorian Gray" and was featured in the motion picture "The Midnight Man." She was nominated for Emmys and Golden Globes in 1978 and 1979 for her portrayal of reporter Billie Newman on "Lou Grant."
Miss Kelsey's Los Angeles stage work includes the roles of Mary Warren in 'The Crucible" at the Ahmanson Theater, and Nellie in "Summer and Smoke" at the Huntington Hartford.
During the 1981 hiatus of "Lou Grant," Miss Kelsey toured India, Bangladesh, the Philippines and Hong Kong on behalf of INFACT, the infants' formula action coalition. She has also been active in the Coalition for Battered Wives.
In her spare time she enjoys needlework, cooking, and gardening. She is 5'3" tall, weighs 100 pounds and has red hair and green eyes. She and her husband, Glenn Strand, a computer programmer, live in Studio City, Calif., and also have a home in Martha's Vineyard, Mass.
