Jon Robert Lindstrom (born October 18, 1957) is an American actor, writer, director, producer, and musician. He is well-known for his longtime role as Kevin Collins on the ABC Daytime soap opera General Hospital and its spin-off Port Charles.


Early life[edit]

Lindstrom was born in Medford, Oregon to Robert, a TV advertising executive, and Suzanne Lindstrom, a homemaker. He has an older brother, Jeff. As a drummer, Lindstrom recorded the album Feel Free to Do So with the band The High Lonesome for the Spark Records label.
