Alyvia Alyn Lind

Birth Name: Alyvia Alyn Lind
Birth Place: North Carolina, United States
Profession: Actor


Alyvia Alyn Lind was born on July 27, 2007 in North Carolina, but was raised in Los Angeles. Acting is a family affair in the Lind family.

Her father, John, is a director/producer, who met their mother, actress Barbara Alyn Woods, on the set of Honey I Shrunk the Kids. Naturally, Alyvia and her sisters gravitated towards acting.

Lind scored her first role, as Faith Newman, on The Young and the Restless at the age of 3. Two years later, she landed her first film role in the movie Dark Skies, opposite Keri Russell and Josh Hamilton at the age of 6. She has been working steady ever since.

Alyvia quickly added credits for film and television in such productions as Mockingbird, NCIS, See Dad Run, Revenge, A Deadly Adoption, Blended, Transparent, A Date to Die For, Masters of Sex and Shangri-La Suite.

However, it was her role as a young Dolly Parton in Dolly Parton’s Coat of Many Colors that left a lasting impression. And she continued recurring on Y&R since 2011.

At 10, Lind already has multiple awards for her performances including a Young Artist Award, Young Entertainer Award, MovieGuide Award and a Best Supporting Actress Award at the 168 Film Festival.

She was nominated for an Emmy and a Critic’s Choice TV Award for Dolly Parton’s Coat of Many Colors. Alyvia is young, talented and very grounded with a very bright future ahead of her.
