About Emily Kinney

Best known as Beth Greene on AMC's blockbuster horror series The Walking Dead, Emily Kinney is a singer/songwriter as well as an actress. Kinney grew up in Nebraska and ultimately moved to New York City to pursue acting, first studying theater at New York University and then working in off-Broadway productions. She landed the role of Anna in the Broadway production of Spring Awakening in 2008, then appeared in August: Osage County in 2009. In 2011, Kinney scored the role of Beth Greene and released her debut EP, Blue Toothbrush. She was able to showcase her singing periodically on The Walking Dead, including renditions of Tom Waits' "Hold On" and a duet with Lauren Cohan (who played Beth's sister Maggie) of the traditional Scottish song "The Parting Glass." Kinney released her second EP, Expired Love, in 2013; it was reissued the following year with two extra songs. After exiting The Walking Dead in 2014, she was cast in recurring roles on the Showtime adult drama series Masters of Sex and the Cinemax medical drama The Knick in 2015. That year, she also toured the U.S. in support of her first full-length album, This Is War, released in October. ~ Heather Phares
