Linden Ashby has one of Hollywood’s most recognizable faces, and has become a staple in television and film over the last couple decades. One of his first roles was as Lance Reventlow, the only son of Woolworth heiress Barbara Hutton (played by Farrah Fawcett) in the Golden Globe-winning miniseries Poor Little Rich Girl: The Barbara Hutton Story. Ashby played the role of Johnny Cage in the 1995 hit Mortal Combat, but did not reprise the role in the sequel. The previous year, he also appeared alongside Kevin Costner in the 1994 epic Wyatt Earp (One of my favorite movies). Ashby portrayed Dr. Jeff Chapman on the 1998 made for TV movie The Lake with Yasmine Bleeth. He appeared in 2007’s Resident Evil: Extinction, which marked his first appearance in a theatrical release since Mortal Kombat. He was on Melrose Place as Dr. Brett Cooper for one season in 1998, and on The Young And The Restlsess from 2003 to 2004. He also began playing the role of Paul Hollingsworth on Days Of Our Lives in March 2008. Linden can currently be seen playing Sheriff Stilinski on the MTV hit show Teen Wolf.
