Since making her motion picture debut in 1997 opposite Kevin
Costner in the Warner Bros. film "The Postman," OLIVIA WILLIAMS has become one of the
hardest working actors in Hollywood.
In 2002 audiences will see Olivia star in Paramount's film
"Lucky Break" from "Full Monty" director Peter Cattaneo, and in the independent feature,
"The Man From Elysian Fields" in which she co-stars with Andy Garcia, James Coburn, and Anjelica
Huston. Both films premiered at The Sundance Film Festival.
Most often remembered for starring opposite Bruce Willis and
Haley Joel Osment in the 1999 summer blockbuster "The Sixth Sense," Olivia also
co-starred in the critical favorite "Rushmore" with Bill Murray and Jason Schwartzman, and
in the independent feature "Four Dogs Playing Poker" which was directed by Paul Rachman
(co-founder of the Slamdance Film Festival). In the past year, she was seen in the British
romantic comedy, "Born Romantic," with Catherine McCormack and in the thriller "The Body,"
opposite Antonio Banderas.
Olivia began her career in the theatre. A native of Great
Britain, she earned a degree in English at Cambridge University, then studied drama at the
Bristol Old Vic Theatre School for two years. Olivia also worked with the Royal Shakespeare Company in
both Stratford-upon-Avon and London.
A four-month tour of "Richard III", featuring Ian
McKellan in the title role, brought her to the United States as a member of the company and to the attention of Kevin
Costner, who handpicked her for his film.
Olivia is currently on location in the UK filming "Heart of
Me," opposite Helena BonhamCarter.
