Acting Beginnings

Lintz started to pursue acting projects in 2010, when she auditioned for the remake of “True Grit”, by the Coen brothers. The Western film is the second adaptation of the 1968 novel of the same name written by Charles Portis. However, the role she auditioned for was later given to Hailee Steinfeld. This did not sway her however, as she then had a guest role in the Lifetime series entitled “Drop Dead Diva” the following year. The legal comedy drama series follows the story of a plus sized lawyer named Jane played by Brooke Elliot, whose body is inhabited by the soul of a fashion model. The show aired for a total of six seasons, concluding in 2014.

After her appearance there, she then had a minor role in the film “The Hunger Games”, in which she played a tribute girl from District 8. The dystopian film is based on the 2008 novel of the same name written by Suzanne Collins, and is the first installment of the film series starring Jennifer Lawrence, Josh Hutcherson, Liam Hemsworth, and Woody Harrelson. The story is set in a post-apocalyptic future, where a boy and girl from the nation’s 12 Districts are chosen annually, and forced to compete in a televised fight to the death in The Hunger Games.

Under the Dome and Recent Projects

In 2013, Mackenzie auditioned for a role in the television show “Under the Dome” and was successful, being cast as Norrie Calvert-Hill. The series is based on the 2009 Stephen King novel of the same name, following the story of residents in a fictional small town, which is suddenly cuts them off from the world by a massive, indestructible, and transparent dome, and they must find a way to survive with their resources lessening, leading to increased tension.

At the same time, a group inside the dome must figure out the mystery behind the dome, how it came to be, and how to remove it.

The show proved successful during its launch, but declined as seasons progressed, and concluded after a three season run in 2015 with producers expressing their happiness over the ending.

One of her latest projects is the film entitled “Love, Simon” which is based on the novel “Simon vs. the Homo Sapiens Agenda”, starring Nick Robinson, Josh Duhamel, and Jennifer Garner. It follows the story of a closeted gay high school boy who tries to balance his life, as a blackmailer threatens to reveal the truth about him to the entire school. The film received critical praise, while also managing to earn significantly in the box office, grossing $66 million worldwide.

Personal Life and Social Media

For her personal life, there is no information about any of Lintz’s romantic relationships. She has not been public about this aspect of her life, though many sources believe that she is single as she is still young and likely focused on developing her acting career further. Two of her younger siblings have pursued acting careers as well, with Madison Lintz becoming a part of “The Walking Dead” as Sophia Peletier. Her younger brother Matthew played the role of Matthew in “Pixels” while also playing Henry in “The Walking Dead”.

One of the reasons there is very limited information about her is due to the lack of any strong online presence. She does not have any accounts on any of the major social media websites such as Instagram, Twitter, and Facebook, preferring to keep her privacy intact. There are fan pages and unofficial pages of her on Facebook, though it is not maintained or related to her in any way.
