Price was born on December 6, 1976 into a racially mixed family: her father was German-Irish and her mother was a Korean emigre. Interestingly, Price's mother was her dad's adopted sister. At 14, Price attended the Professional Children's School in New York, which boasts of such luminaries as Sidney Lumet, Ricki Lake and Yo-Yo Ma.
Actress Lindsay Price began her career when she was just a little girl, appearing in commercials including a Toys "R" Us ad in which she sang the toy store's famous jingle.
Price eventually grew into a young woman, attending the Art Center College of Design in Pasadena, CA, but her interest in appearing onscreen only grew. She began making appearances on shows like Boy Meets World by the time she was 17 and two years later, in 1995, she scored a recurring role on the soap opera The Bold and the Beautiful.
Then, in 1998, she joined the cast of the night-time drama Beverly Hills 90210, which was beginning its tenth season. She brought a new, fresh energy to the series, leading to a string of appearances over the next few years, including a starring role on the American remake of the British series Coupling, as well as roles on Pepper Dennis and Lipstick Jungle.
