Olivia is an award-winning motivated and professional 16-year-old young actress with a playing age of 12-17 years old.
In December, Olivia won 'Best Young Actress' at the Birmingham Film Festival for her role as 'Beatrice' in the multi-award award winning short thriller 'Bea Before Me'. Olivia has a large amount of acting experience way beyond her years and adores being on set and trying new things with 16+ film/TV credits from over the past year.
Most recently, she has been working on a Victorian feature film 'The Ballad of Lucy Sands' as the lead role of 'Jane Shannon' and as the lead role of Constance Stanley in the WW2 feature film 'The Invisible War'. Olivia has secured seven film contracts for 2018 so far, starting with a Celtic/Viking short film and a sequel to the dramedy 'Facing Facts' which she is very excited about.
If she ever has a rare quiet couple of weeks she will be improving on her own production company 'Dream Hive Films' (www.dreamhivefilms.com) by making more award winning films; recording monologues and duologues and improving on her craft with screen workshops.
Olivia is used to travelling up and down the country for filming with easy access to London (from teddington) whilst having a major base NEAR BRISTOL in Gloucestershire.

"Olivia had a vital role in this short film. She delivered with a high quality performance and worked well with the cast and crew. What is striking about Olivia is her understanding of the character and relevant time periods in which the film is set. I would highly recommend Olivia as an upcoming actress and someone who certainly is professional and stands out from the crowd."

"Olivia has been a great pleasure to work with and an asset to the production, Pandora. She was trouble-free and her presence was always enjoyable on set. She is a great team player and was willing to help wherever needed, always with a smile on her face. Olivia got along with everyone in the group and we were a tight cast and crew. I would love to work with Olivia again in the future if there came an opportunity to do so. I would recommend very much, she has been one of my favourite actors to work with! Given I directed her, Olivia’s acting is at a standard where myself and the crew were very impressed, she is very ambitious and takes criticism well and works off that to better herself."
- Amber Sandys - Director, Pandora
"Olivia is exceptionally professional for an actress of such a young age. She arrived on set on time, and was very reliable. On set, Olivia was fantastic at taking directions and proved a great understanding of the script and theme of the film. A long day on set was no problem for her at all. Olivia`s acting shines in this project and her role is vital for the storyline. On a different note, her parents are very supportive, as they brought her to and picked her up from various locations across London and allowed her to be on set on a school day. I can recommend Olivia to anyone who is looking for a professional, bubbly and motivated child actress whose acting will enrich your film."
