Early life[edit]

Born in Palm Springs, California, Korman is of Jewish, Greek, and Italian origin.[1] She moved with her family to San Diego, California, later attending the University of Nevada, Las Vegas. Korman was a national pre-teen talent winner of the Young Miss America Beauty Pageant.[1] Singing since age eleven, Korman got a role in the Broadway production of Grease at age eighteen.[1] Then she was lead vocalist in the Las Vegas Sands Hotel afternoon show Viva Las Vegas as well as the lead role of Maria in the Civic Light Opera's West Side Story in Austin, Texas. Additionally, Korman has won several national vocal competitions, including The Los Angeles Philharmonic's Award-Vocal/Opera, The National Date Festival, and America's Showcase Starlet.

Career[edit]

In 1999, she won the role of Theresa Lopez-Fitzgerald on the NBC soap opera Passions, for which she was nominated for the Soap Opera Digest Award for Outstanding Female Newcomer in 2000. She also made guest appearances on The Weakest Link and The Other Half in 2002.

On April 9, 2009, Lindsay made a guest appearance on CSI: Crime Scene Investigation.

In late July of that year, Soap Opera Digest announced that Hartley would join the cast of Days of Our Lives, another NBC soap opera, in the recast role of Arianna Hernandez, which would place her opposite former Passions co-stars Galen Gering and Eric Martsolf, who would once again portray her brother and love interest, respectively.

Hartley was let go from Days of Our Lives in 2010.

On September 18, 2010, it was announced that Hartley signed on to play the new character of Cara Castillo on All My Children; she first aired on December 7. She was also cast as DC Comics character Mad Harriet during Smallville's tenth and final season.[2]

In January 2013, it was announced that Lindsay signed on to play the role of Dr. Cara Castillo on the new All My Children being revived by Prospect Park and to begin airing sometime in April 2013.

Personal life[edit]

Hartley married her former Passions co-star Justin Hartley (who played Fox Crane) on May 1, 2004. Lindsay and Justin lived in Los Angeles with their daughter, Isabella Justice Hartley, who was born on July 3, 2004. On May 6, 2012, Lindsay filed for divorce from Justin in the Los Angeles County Superior Court citing "irreconcilable differences."
