LMN will air 13 all-new movies scheduled to premiere from October 1 till December. Of the many edgy thrillers, one of the films that caught our attention due to its edgy plot was 'Trapped By My Father's Killer'. The film depicts emotional upheavals and is interrogative in approach. It revolves around murder and punishment as well as some introspection by the lead characters.

Lindy Booth

Born in 1979 in Ontario, Canada, Lindy Booth is best remembered for her role as Riley Grant on the Disney Channel series, ‘The Famous Jett Jackson’. Between 1999 and 2019, the actress has starred in 21 films and over 45 television series.

She is ready to fight all odds to stay in the entertainment world. In a chat with Interview Magazine, the actress spoke about how one has to be devoted and passionate about acting. "I literally think that if you’re in this business, it has to be the only thing you can and want to do because it’s so hard. You have to be fully committed — and partially insane— to wake up every morning and be like, ‘I’m an actor.’ I have it in my blood. It’s in every pore of my body. There’s always something awesome about every project, even with the worst ones. I try to remind myself every time I think about complaining that there are way worse jobs than mine," she reportedly said.

In the same year, she featured in the Canadian ensemble drama ‘Century Hotel’. Further, in 2002 she co-starred in the Canadian comedy film ‘Rub & Tug’. The actress was cast as Dodger Allen in the 2005 movie ‘Cry Wolf’ and featured in the 2004 remake of ‘Dawn of the Dead’. In 2008, she went on to star in the thriller film ‘Behind the Wall'.
