She made her acting debut in an English independent film, called The Process of Creative Deception, before stepping into the Indian film industry. She has acted in Tamil and Telugu movies.

Linda says she suffered a lot when she was a kid. "I remember my younger days. When I was young, I suffered a lot as I lost my father." However these children must be fortunate, she felt, as they have joined the Tripura Girls Home where they are provided with not only quality education but are also given nutritious food.
"My dream was to come to India and serve these children. When I got an opportunity to act in films, I waited to do something for the unfortunate children. I am very much moved by the love and support of the people here and also the affection that is showered on me by the Indian people. What best I can do I am doing for children."
