Among her more than 150 screen credits are roles in Seven Keys to Baldpate (1925), Big Brother (1923), The Wagon Master (1929), and The Mystery Club (1926). Her final film role was in Two O'Clock in the Morning (1929).[citation needed]

Talk to me! It's Linda! Don't run, don't go! Hi, my name is John Roberts, and I'm Linda on "Bob's Burgers." Linda: Aw, everybody look at the tree! Aw, I love this tree. Bob: It's the day after Halloween, Lin, don't you think we might have gotten the tree a little early? Linda: Oh, put some mistletoe on my butt and kiss it, Bobby. So Linda's voice came from basically my mom, me imitating her. She's from Brooklyn, from Bensonhurst, and I pretty much have been imitating her my whole life. It really struck a note with the audience and that was something that was really exciting. I think people are surprised to find out that Linda is a man, and I do get questions about how I feel about the equality of playing a woman, and that maybe that would take away from a female actress. In animation, a lot of female actresses can do guy roles as well, like Pam Adlon on "King of the Hill." I'm a comic and Loren Bouchard caught wind of my act where I'd imitate my mom obsessing over the Christmas tree, or the time that I came out to her as gay. These videos were about— they're about 10 years old on YouTube and Loren saw them and thought it'd be a great character to work with on this new show "Bob's Burgers." When I'm off set I still have people address me as Linda. (laughs) No, just kidding, I don't do that. Sometimes I just get into the fun of it all, and once the voice is warmed up it's better to stay there for the record. Warm it up! Sometimes I've been a little off with Linda and you really have to warm up your voice and get into that tone and pitch. She's got a lot of highs and lows, it's very much like a musical instrument. So even when I'm not recording, I'll keep talking as Linda! 'Cause it's fun! Right? Bob: So what's for breakfast? Linda: Eggs, eggs, eggs! Bom bom. Linda: Eggs, eggs, eggs, eggs! Bob: Oh my gosh. You probably need to be good at listening to be a good voiceover actor. You need to observe people and hear the rhythm of their voice, and the tone, and the pitch, and maybe there's an accent. We don't have to sit around in a trailer all day. It's pretty fast, we usually record about three or four hours. We have a lot of fun, we laugh. H. Jon Benjamin plays Bob and he's a comic, as well as Eugene Mirman [Gene]. They're both incredible comics and I've learned a lot from working with them, so altogether we laugh a lot and it's probably the best job I will ever have. My advice for comedians and voiceover actors would be to keep doing it no matter how sad it gets along the way, because you could have some bad shows and you just gotta get back on the horse and keep doing it. If you really love it, the best thing to do is watch comedy, go out, and see as many comics as you can. Make friends with them all, just keep writing until you feel like you're connecting to the audience. I think the craziest thing is that I have this amazing job and it completely changed my life and I didn't see it coming at all. So you never know what's coming. Just keep doing. Thanks for watching! Watch your Bob's Burgers.
