If social media didn’t exist, how would your life be different?
If social media didn't exist I would definitely be more carefree. Sometimes, people can use it to hurt instead of lifting others. Social media does keep me informed on certain issues which I appreciate.
If you were heading out on a road trip right this minute, what would you pack?
If I were to leave for a road trip right now, I would take my favorite snacks which are French fries, hummus, and candy! I would take a DVD player and some movies. I love using DVD's even though not a lot of people use them now.
What’s one dream that you’ve tucked away for the moment? How come?
One dream that I still have but I am not pursuing at the moment is Broadway. I love musical theater. Acting and music takes up most of my time now, but I plan to pursue Broadway one day!
Tell us about the moment you were told you got the role of Charlotte Wrather on Coop & Cami Ask the World.
When I found out that I booked Coop & Cami Ask The World, I was working on another show I am on called Just Add Magic. I came out of hair and makeup to find that my agents and manager were calling and they told me and I was ecstatic. I had to try and contain my excitement for the rest of the day while I was shooting because we had to keep the project under wraps!!
What’s a day in the life of Olivia when filming your Disney show?
A day in my life on set includes getting up super early! It also usually consists of a smoothie for breakfast. Some days we rehearse the script and others we shoot the scenes. Also, we have to do somewhere in between 3-5 hours of school a day.
Where and when do you get your best ideas?
I get my best ideas from watching TV and films. I also get ideas from listening to music. Watching other performers really inspires me!
Are you more of a spontaneous or structured person?
I would say I'm somewhere in between. I love to be spontaneous, but some days I love to have a plan in mind so I can prepare myself.
If you could try out any job for one week, what job would you choose to try?
If I could try out any job for a week, I would choose to be a casting director. I love the idea of being able to find talent and make dreams happen!
What do you think your life will look like in 10 years?
I hope that I am happy in whatever I am doing. I see myself continuing to act in film and creating music I love! I also hope that I will have made a positive impact in someone's life.
After a long day, do you prefer to hang out with friends or spend time alone?
After a long day, I love to hang with friends. They lift me up and help me detox from the day!
If you could have been to witness one part of history what would you have liked to have seen?
If I could have witnessed any part of history, I would have been curious to see what life in the Renaissance was like.
Aside from acting you sing and perform. Do you plan to release new music? How many instruments do you play?
Yes! I have music in the works now. I play three instruments: piano, guitar, and ukulele.
