After finishing her training at the Academy of Live & Recorded Arts (London) in 2004, Lindsay began her acting career in UK touring theatres and fringe shows, with roles such as Lady Macbeth in Macbeth, Mona in Days of Wine & Roses and Maid Marion in a musical version of Babes in the Wood.
In 2007 she took further training in Los Angeles at the Margie Haber Film School, and on returning to the UK had roles in several independent films and comedy sketch shows, including Sophie in the award winning A Tale of Two Sisters and The Lady in the award nominated The Cream Cake, which she co-wrote and produced.
She moved to Denmark in late 2009 and has appeared in DR's successful TV series Borgen and TV2's documentary series Sjæl og Videnskab. She has also walked the boards again as Irene in The Blue Room and Michelle Dubois in 'Allo, 'Allo!. Lindsay's debut with Why Not Theatre Company was in Desdemona, a play about a handkerchieft, in which she played the title role of Desdemona.
