BIO: Hi! I’m Olivia Killingsworth, a New York-based actor working in stage, film, and television. A “little firecracker with a big bang”, I’m known for delivering performances that pack a significant punch — emotionally, intellectually, spiritually, comically… But really, I just live to find the truth in made-up stories, then tell it to you in the most authentic and engaging way that I can. I’ve been fortunate enough to do this on many fine stages in New York and Los Angeles, including the Kirk Douglas Theater and the Obie award-winning Metropolitan Playhouse, as well as in some independent films, one of which premiered at the Tribeca Film Festival.
I’ve been called “impressive” by The New York Times, “talented” by The Hollywood Reporter, and “mad sexy” by the guys on Flatbush Avenue in Brooklyn (where I am very happy to live). I’m pretty sure those first two nuggets of praise are due in large part to the impeccable training I’ve received at Occidental College, the British American Drama Academy, the Larry Moss Studio, and the T. Schreiber Studio. But that last one, well… I guess that’s just genetics. Thanks, Mom and Dad!
