Olivia was off to Byron Bay for schoolies when she got the news of her call back for the role of Yashvi Rebecchi. She immediately cancelled her flight and headed to her audition with Toadie (Ryan Moloney) and Shane Rebecchi (Nicholas Coghlan).
“I was so excited…I just couldn’t believe it. They were just so awesome and so lovely”, says Olivia.
Olivia’s passion for the performing arts began when just a young girl, participating in both primary and secondary school productions including Beauty and the Beast, Alice in Wonderland and Fright Night. In Year 10 Olivia did a workshop with Shakespeare’s Globe Theatre in London to further develop her acting skills.
As a young girl Olivia recalls telling her mother that she was “going to be on Neighbours, one day”. While back then it seemed a childhood fantasy the dream has now come true.
Olivia was accepted in to Swinburne University this year to study Film and Television (script writing and photography – her other great passion) but she has chosen to defer her education, for a year at least.
