Linda Ann Hopkins was born on July 25th of 1976 in Great Falls, Montana. Raised by a Thai mother and a father of European descent, Linda’s life took a turn at age ten. Her mother abandoned the family, leaving Linda alone with her father, who was a hippie. A few years later, Hopkins became a model after taking classes during weekends.
