Biography

Like a couple of her co-stars on "The Walking Dead" (AMC 2010- ), Emily Kinney found a successful role that made her very well-known in the entertainment industry in a short amount of time. Kinney, who was born in Wayne, Nebraska on August 15, 1985, landed her part as Beth Greene on the hit zombie apocalypse show a mere four years after she graduated from Nebraska Wesleyan University in 2006. Before that, she had appeared in Broadway shows like "Spring Awakening" and "August: Osage Country" before landing her first TV role on "Law & Order: Criminal Intent" (NBC 2001-11), a show that is known for utilizing a lot of theater actors. She also appeared on the series "The Good Wife" (CBS 2009-) and "The Big C" (Showtime 2010-13) before she joined "The Walking Dead." Besides acting, Kinney was also a singer; her song "The Parting Glass" appeared on <i>The Walking Dead: AMC Original Soundtrack, Vol. 1</i> in 2013. The following year, she self-released her first album, <i>Expired Love</i>. Kinney left "The Walking Dead" midway through the show's fifth season, following the death of her character Beth. After appearing in guest roles on "Forever" (ABC 2014-15) and "The Flash" (CW 2014- ), Kinney joined the cast of the period medical drama "The Knick" (Cinemax 2014- ) in its second season. During this period, her offscreen romance with former "Walking Dead" co-star Norman Reedus became public.
