Actress | Writer | Producer
Based in Los Angeles | New York Local Hire
I wasn’t competitive in sports. Quite frankly when I played softball when I was younger, the few times I’d hit the ball, my dad would scream, “Fly Olivia, fly!” I took that “stage direction” literally and started to flap my arms as if I were a bird, so in short, performing was my thing (softball was not).
I am Olivia Singer, a native New Yorker, and May 2020 graduate of USC. I earned a BA in theatre with a minor in film production. I am raunchy and quick witted, and also sincere and sweet.
At USC, I was awarded most outstanding solo performance for a one-woman show. I wrote and performed, playing 9 characters. My skillset is diverse, yet focused, and my instincts are deeply rooted in creativity and discovery.
I've learned that the key is to never lose sight of that little girl who flapped her wings.

The short is about a pair of young, eager filmmakers who land their film debut at the Sundance Film Festival, but only one of the two will get the recognition they deserve.
