Early life

Chad Tyler Lindberg was born on November 1, 1976, in the state of Washington. He grew up in Mount Vernon. There is very little known about Lindberg’s parents, as he chooses to keep his personal life private. From an early age, Chad dreamed of acting and was focused on making that dream a reality.

Undeterred by early rejections at auditions, Lindberg’s determination never waned. He relentlessly attended casting calls until finally landing his first filming opportunity.


Chad Lindberg in Supernatural


Chad Lindberg’s career kicked off with his debut in the renowned ‘90s American series “NYPD Blue,” albeit in a minor role. This early step propelled him towards further auditions, leading to roles in series such as “The X-Files” and “ER.”

A pivotal moment in 1995 came with his role in “Born to be Wild.” Not yet twenty, Lindberg explored the profound friendship between a human and a monkey, showcasing the deep connections possible between humans and animals. He took on the episodic role of Burger Boss.

By 1997, Lindberg had ventured into the horror genre with “Black Circle Boys,” securing a more prominent role as Rory. Despite his full commitment, the role did not win favor with critics. In 1999, he was cast in “October Sky” as Sherman O’Dell, a family drama based on true events about a boy’s dream to explore space.

2001 marked a significant turn in his career with his role as Jesse, the stuttering mechanic in “The Fast and the Furious,” catapulting him to fame. Lindberg shared the set with stars like Vin Diesel, Paul Walker, Michelle Rodriguez, and Jordana Brewster.

In 2003, he appeared in “The Last Samurai” alongside Tom Cruise and Ken Watanabe. 2010 saw him in his first leading role in “I Spit on Your Grave.” Another notable part was as the genius IT programmer Ash in “Supernatural,” where he supported the Winchester brothers, portrayed by Jared Padalecki and Jensen Ackles.

Lindberg’s filmography spans over 70 titles, including roles in “Sons of Anarchy,” “Crimes of the Past,” “Security,” “MoniKa,” “Sneaky Pete,” “Four Good Days,” and more. Far from resting on his achievements, Lindberg continues to engage in acting and has begun exploring production work.
