Linton was born in Edinburgh, Scotland, and grew up in a castle called Melville Castle. She attended St George’s School for Girls and Fettes College. From a young age, Linton was interested in acting and trained with a private coach from the London Academy of Music and Dramatic Art.
When Linton was 14 years old, her mother passed away from breast cancer. After finishing boarding school, she spent part of her gap year volunteering in northern Zambia. Linton later attended university in the United States.
Linton adopted her stage surname from her grandfather to avoid confusion with another author named Louise Hay.

She has appeared in other films and TV shows, including Scavengers, Cabin Fever, and Intruder.

Linton briefly served as the interim CEO of Dune Entertainment, taking over from her fiancé, Steven Mnuchin. However, she resigned from the role after questions were raised about Mnuchin’s divestment from the company. Linton is also involved in The Rockshiel Trust, a Scottish entity that applied for development projects in Edinburgh.
Linton’s production company, Stormchaser Films, acquired the film Serial Daters Anonymous, which she also completed and starred in alongside Sam Page. She wrote, directed, produced, financed, and starred in the film Me You Madness, which was released in 2021.
