Lindsay Pulsipher (Salt Lake City, Utah, May 6, 1982) is an American actress. She has had several roles in film and television, and is known for her series regular role as Rose Lawrence on A&E Network's The Beast (2009). She joined the third season of HBO's True Blood (2010), playing were-panther Crystal Norris and love interest to Jason Stackhouse.
Lindsay Pulsipher grew up in Salt Lake City, Utah, with five siblings, and was inspired to be an actor by her mother, a theater actress. As she puts it, "I used to make either my little sister or my best friend act out these plays with me. I was doing that from the time I can remember. It was always something I enjoyed doing". She was influenced by Julie Christie and Audrey Hepburn who showed her "a whole new world as far as acting goes".
After appearing in several roles from 2000 to 2003 in the television series, Touched by an Angel, filmed in her hometown of Salt Lake City, and after starring in a couple of indie films, Pulsipher moved to Los Angeles to pursue a lifelong dream of a career in acting.
She was given several guest starring roles in popular television series including House, M.D., CSI: NY (Crime Scene Investigation: New York) and NCIS: Naval Criminal Investigative Service, and eventually received a regular role with Patrick Swayze in The Beast (2009). She took the role of Crystal Norris beginning with the third season of the True Blood (2010). She has starred in two features directed by Calvin Reeder: The Oregonian (2011), and The Rambler (2013).
"...I'm a very visual person. When I'm reading a script or if I'm preparing for a scene I really like to create the story in a visual sense. I take myself out of the character completely and almost watch the character as a spectator, if that makes sense. I'm observing the character as a third person. So I don't make it too personal so that she's her own person. I read it like I do a novel. When you read a book you create this image in your head of what these people are doing and the story in your head is more of a visual thing. I guess that I do that with scripts, too. I almost look at it as a spectator as opposed to being right in it. I know that sounds cheesy but then I feel like I can then learn from watching it if that makes sense".
