A standout performer and role model at just 19, Olivia Holt has established herself as one of Hollywood’s women to watch. With a global campaign as the face for Neutrogena, she continues to build a following with her girl-next-door looks, positive message and charming personality to match. Holt starred in two Disney television series and is signed with Hollywood Records.
Born in Tennessee and raised in Mississippi, Holt got her start at the age of three when her parents saw the passion and love she had for entertaining. She began to attend theater arts camp during the summers and worked with a variety of acting coaches. In her spare time, Holt would perform for her family, putting on plays with her older sister. After signing with her first agent, she quickly began booking commercials with national spots including Mattel and Hasbro. At 13 years of age, Holt moved to Los Angeles to star as Kim, the confident, butt-kicking, independent karate expert in Disney XD’s “Kickin’ It.” Shortly after, Holt’s vocal ability would emerge, showcasing the starlet’s range. Her musical talents were recognized as she was nominated and won for her hit song “Had Me at Hello” in the Best Crush Song category at the Radio Disney Music Awards.
Holt has two siblings, older sister Morgan and younger brother Cade, and enjoys spending time with her family and her two Yorkshire terrier pups, Scout and Diesel. In her spare time, she enjoys going with friends and family to the movies, the beach and Disneyland.
