Biography

A handsome blond leading man of TV and films, Ashby spent many years making sporadic appearances in films and on TV before clicking with the Hollywood powers thanks to his role as Morgan Earp, the younger brother of the titular "Wyatt Earp" (1994), directed by Lawrence Kasdan and starring Kevin Costner. The Florida native dropped out of college and moved to NYC to pursue acting. After studies at the Neighborhood Playhouse, the young actor got his first break playing the nefarious Curtis Alden on the ABC soap opera "Loving" in its initial two seasons (1983-85). Ashby was fired from the soap for what he claims was his penchant for arguing with the producers and writers about his character. (He later amended his remarks and conceded that he may have brought it on himself by his bad attitude.)

Bonus Trivia

.

On his initial lack of success in Hollywood: "There were some terrible years there for me. I was VERY depressed. And one day I just made this decision: No more lousy roles. I'm going to hold out for things I want to do. It can't be any worse than what I'm doing. It's funny, as soon as I made that decision, great projects started coming my way, and it's been comfortable ever since." --Linden Ashby, SOAP OPERA DIGEST, September 30, 1997

.

"'Linden always says, 'Why do I get these confident, wise-guy roles?' But's it a part of him." --wife actress Susan Walters to PEOPLE, September 18, 1995
