Emily Kinney is an actor and songwriter best known for her role as Beth Greene on AMC's hit television series "The Walking Dead." Kinney's musical talents have been featured on TV, in musical theater, and in her own releases. A Nebraska native, she studied theatre at Nebraska Wesleyan University and New York University, staying in NYC to pursue her acting and music career. Kinney worked in theatre off-Broadway and regionally before landing a role on Broadway in the musical adaptation of "Spring Awakening" in 2008 and the first national tour of "August: Osage County." In 2011 she released her debut EP, "Blue Toothbrush," and started working on "The Walking Dead" where she would later become a series regular. Her singing has been prominently featured on the show, notably a moving cover of Tom Waits' "Hold On," and a haunting rendition of the traditional Scottish song "The Parting Glass" with cast-mate Lauren Cohan, the latter of which appears on The "Walking Dead: AMC Original Soundtrack, Vol. 1." Kinney has also been seen in reoccurring roles and guest appearances on television series such as "The Following," "The Good Wife," "The Big C," "Law & Order: Criminal Intent," and "Law & Order: SVU."
In between shooting the current season of "The Walking Dead," Kinney wrote her latest EP "Expired Love" in Los Angeles and New York and released it in October 2013 (Em-K Music and Thirty Tigers). "Expired Love" was re-released on March 18, 2014, with a new original song by Kinney and a cover of Waxahatchee's "Be Good." She regularly performs at New York City's Rockwood Music Hall and LA's Hotel Café, has been praised by Rolling Stone for her "heartfelt, emotional indie rock," and has been compared to Regina Spektor, Ingrid Michaelson, and Nellie McKay.
