“And this is all I’ve ever wanted to do. I didn’t want to be anything that little girls want to be. I always said to my parents, ‘I want to be an actress,’ and they’d go, ‘No, no.’ I mean, sure, they were hoping I’d grow out of it. They didn’t know. You’re talking a lot of years ago,” Linder explained.

Linder’s parents were supportive and let her have dance lessons and all. But they didn’t have any idea about the business because none in their family was in the industry.

She added that she’s “honored and proud to be part” of the acting community. She’s just taking one step at a time. She may be in the business for decades but she admitted that she still goes to acting classes.
