Actress Lyndie Greenwood On Busting Negative Self-Talk (And More)


You may recognize our March cover runner—actress Lyndie Greenwood—from her role as Jenny Mills on Fox’s “Sleepy Hollow.” Even on 16-hour set days, actress Lyndie Greenwood likes to start the morning by getting in 4 miles.

While spending time with her during the cover shoot, here are a few fun facts we learned about the 32-year-old Canadian.

On racing…

She hasn’t yet! “It is a challenge sometimes, but mostly I just love to run. So I think I’ll just leave it as that. Running is a bit of a treat for me. Maybe one day I’ll change my mind [about racing], but right now that’s where I stand.”

On busting negative self-talk…

“Because I run, and because I’m healthy, that’s the best I can do. I feel my brain is chemically better when I run, so those issues of body image aren’t as big of a deal when I know I’m taking care of myself.”

On why being fit (not skinny) = happiness…

“There was a time when I was way too skinny, and my friends asked me to get on the scale in front of them right now. And I realized I was a miserable person! I was cranky and hungry all the time.”

On what’s going down during ‘off-season’…

Secret stuff! “There are some projects I’m looking at over the hiatus, so I’ll be going to Los Angeles a little bit.”
