Childhood and education

Heather spent part of her childhood in Upland, and the rest in Guilderland, New York alongside her identical twin sister Christina Bennett Lind who is an actress as well – they haven’t spoken much about their parents as they appreciate their privacy and do not want them involved in media.

Career of an actress

Heather launched her acting career as soon as she got her master’s degree – she began appearing in theatre plays such as the Shakespeare in the Park production “The Merchant of Venice”. In the show, she played the daughter of Shylock named Jessica while Shylock was played by the popular actor Al Pacino – the two were rewarded with the theatre world award for the outstanding Broadway or off-Broadway debut performance in the 2010 – 2011 season. She went on to land her first role in a TV series when she played Mellissa Samuels in “Blue Bloods” in 2011, and in the same year in “Boardwalk Empire” , “Sleepy Hollow” in 2014, and “The Walker” in 2015.

Controversy: Accusing the ex-president

In October 2017, as part of the MeToo campaign, Heather accused George H. W. Bush, the former President of the United States of America, of sexual assault – she stated that he touched her from behind while she was posing for a photo and that he told her a dirty joke. This statement was uploaded onto her Instagram account, but which she later deleted.

The ex-president’s spokesman addressed the matter and explained that Bush is tied to his wheelchair and has little strength in his arm which occasionally falls down from people’s waists while taking pictures – the president keeps telling the same old joke when that happens, to keep the people at ease.

Personal life and relationships

Heather is very secretive when it comes to her love life, as she is trying to keep her personal matters away from the media’s attention, however, being as popular as she is, some things about her past and present boyfriends are still known.

Heather was rumored to be dating a popular actor back in 2017, after the two met on the set of a TV series – they were an instant match and were dating for several months until the filming was completed. Due to a lack of time to see one another, they decided to call it quits.

Heather is currently rumored to be dating Federico Rodriguez, the popular actor who has appeared in movies such as “Bull” and “The Path” both shot in 2016. The two have allegedly been dating for several months now, but being as secretive as she is, Heather hasn’t confirmed this.
