What is Alyvia Alyn Lind doing now? Her Age, Parents, Siblings

Alyvia Alyn Lind

The young rising talent Alyvia Alyn Lind was born on 27th July 2007, in Los Angeles, California, USA and is known not only for her family connections, but thanks to the outstanding acting performances she has given in series such as “Chucky” and “Daybreak”.

Alyvia got into showbiz at a young age thanks to the influence of her mother and older sisters, who are themselves talented actresses with decades of experience. The award-winning teen began playing Faith Newman in soap opera “The Young and the Restless” at just four years old, a recurring role which would last until 2021. In the meantime, Alyvia has dabbled in just about every genre imaginable, from campy horrors to thriller-dramas and feel-good TV movies.


In 2012, Alyvia was cast as Amanda Clarke in “Revenge” and would appear in eight episodes over the course of three years. Around the same time, the Californian also began playing Charlotte in “See Dad Run” and Grace in “Transparent”.

The actress made her big-screen debut with the 2013 sci-fi horror movie “Dark Skies”, which received a mixed bag of reviews and was criticized for its screenplay and shoddy plot. Nevertheless, the movie was commercially successful, bringing in $27.8 million against a $3.5 million budget.

Alyvia began focusing on theatre and TV movies over the next few years, with prominent roles in “A Deadly Adoption”, “Fire Twister”, and “Mockingbird” to name just three. In 2015, she reached mainstream recognition thanks to her portrayal of a young Dolly Parton in “Dolly Parton’s Coat of Many Colors”, which premiered to glowing reviews and helped put Alyvia and her young co-stars on the map. After several rounds of auditions, Dolly herself surprised Alyvia with the announcement, saying: ‘I thought, well, I would be so honored to have you play Little Dolly.’

Apart from reprising her role in the 2016 sequel “Dolly Parton’s Christmas of Many Colors: Circle of Love”, Alyvia guest-starred in “9-1-1”, “Teachers”, and “Gamer’s Guide to Pretty Much Everything”. In 2017, she was nominated for a Daytime Emmy Award in the Outstanding Younger Actress in a Drama Series category for her work in “The Young and the Restless”. (In 2021 and 2022, the starlet would also be nominated for a Daytime Emmy for her role as Faith Newman, albeit in the Outstanding Younger Performer in a Drama Series category).

Although Alyvia’s movie career has slowed down somewhat in the last couple of years, she continues to shine on TV and streaming platforms. In 2019, she played one of the main characters in Netflix’s “Daybreak”, a post-apocalyptic comedy-drama series starring Colin Ford and Austin Crute. Despite a promising plotline and generous production budget, the show was canceled after just one season due to low viewing figures.

Since 2021, however, Alyvia has been playing Lexy Cross in “Chucky”, which is based on the famous “Child’s Play” movie franchise and has been running for three seasons so far. Tackling tough themes such as sexuality, bullying, and murder, “Chucky” has been particularly praised for its creative horror and absurd humor, which led to it winning a Saturn Award for Best Television Series Release in 2022.

Alyvia will also be playing Calliope in the upcoming “The Spiderwick Chronicles”, based on the Holly Black and Tony DiTerlizzi books of the same name and set to release in early 2024.


Alyvia is the youngest daughter of “One Tree Hill” alum Barbara Alyn Woods and assistant producer John Lind. Barbara joined the entertainment industry in 1988, and after years of guest-starring roles and low-budget movies, was cast as Deborah Scott in the Mark Schwan drama.

As one of the main “One Tree Hill” characters from seasons one to four, Barbara soon became a fan favorite as viewers rooted for Deborah to overcome her struggles with alcohol and drugs. Despite committing heinous acts such as setting her ex-husband’s car lot on fire to try and kill him, she later cleaned up her act and even found love again.

From 2009 to 2012, Barbara was absent from the series as she presumably focused on other projects and motherhood; however, she returned for a few episodes in season six and allowed her character some much-needed breathing space.

Although Barbara’s “One Tree Hill” role has been her longest project to date, she was also the lead in the unsuccessful USA Network prime-time soap opera “Eden”, which aired in 1993 – in June of the same year, the actress daringly posed nude for Playboy in order to promote the series. From 1997 to 2000, she portrayed Diane Szalinski in “Honey, I Shrunk the Kids: The TV Show”.

Despite not being an A-lister, Barbara is certainly a familiar face in television, and it’s thanks to her guest roles in popular shows such as “The Golden Girls”, “Desperate Housewives”, and “Seinfeld”. The Northern Illinois University graduate met her future husband while working on “Honey, I Shrunk the Kids”, and they married in 1999, going on to have three daughters: Natalie, Emily, and Alyvia.


Natalie Alyn Lind was born on 21st June 2000 and made her acting debut in a 2006 episode of “One Tree Hill”. In 2010, she made her first TV movie, which was followed by films such as “Blood Done Sign My Name” and “Kaboom”. In 2013, the actress landed her big break as she joined the cast of “The Goldbergs” as Dana Caldwell; to date, Dana has appeared regularly in seasons one to four, seven and 10.

Apart from “The Goldbergs”, Natalie portrayed Silver St. Cloud in season two of “Gotham” and played the mutant Lauren Strucker in a pilot episode for “The Gifted”. Although some of the actress’s projects were put on pause following the SAG-AFTRA strike, her upcoming role in the young adult romance “Marked Men” was recently announced.

Meanwhile, middle sister Emily Alyn Lind was born on 6th May 2002 and began doing regular acting work in the late 2000s, with movies such as “The Secret Life of Bees”, “Enter the Void”, and “Blood Done Sign My Name”, as well as a recurring role in “Eastwick”. Since then, some of her notable projects include “Movie 43”, “Dear Dumb Diary”, and “The Haunting in Connecticut 2: Ghosts of Georgia”.

Emily’s career began gaining traction in the late 2010s as she was promoted to a starring role in season three of “Code Black”, having played Ariel during seasons one and two. Her starring role in the comedy-horror movies “The Babysitter” and “The Babysitter: Killer Queen” also helped expand her fanbase, as the films were seen by millions on Netflix.

In March 2020, Emily was announced as one of the starring characters in the “Gossip Girl” reboot, which premiered on HBO Max in 2021 and was cancelled after just two seasons. The show failed to live up to viewers’ high expectations, as many of them felt that the culturally impactful original series didn’t need to be remade.

The main gripe, however, was how politically correct the new “Gossip Girl” was compared to its decadent predecessor – as one critic put it, ‘Making the reboot characters socially conscious even as they continue to be out of touch and frivolous makes them hypocritical in a way that the show doesn’t seem to be self-aware of.’
