We are so thrilled about the beautiful and talented Olivia Osteen signing with Page Parkes! Olivia is not only the niece of famed televangelist Joel Osteen, but she is an aspiring actress (check out her IMDB here!) who loves to give back to her community.
In 2013, Olivia paired up with Disney star Jake Short in a PSA to promote the non-profit organization "Blessings in a Backpack", which raises national awareness of children suffering from hunger. The organization is committed to fight hunger in elementary schools by providing kids with a "backpack of food to take home for 38 weekends during the school year."
We caught up Olivia to ask her a few questions about her life and new ventures. Read below to get to know her a bit better!
1. How excited were you to sign with Page Parkes?
I was thrilled to be working with Page! I have such a fabulous team in Los Angeles and I’m now proud to have an amazing Texas team too!
2. What are your goals for acting?
My goal is to do film. I love watching movies that challenge my thinking or make me feel something emotionally and I hope to be a part of films that do that for others. But ultimately, I want to stay true to myself and always choose projects that I’m passionate about.
3. How's your summer so far? Any major plans?
My summer has been super chill and relaxed! I’m at a point where I want to be 100% present and truly savor all the time I have with the people I’m closest to since I’m a senior (yay!). As for plans-I’m scheduling a trip out to LA for episodic season and then another lengthier stay for pilot season.
4. Do you have a favorite actor/actress? Also, favorite movie?
Oh goodness, that’s a tough question. Most people I know are pretty familiar/annoyed with my obsession with Johnny Depp, so I’d have to say him. But I also admire Meryl Streep, Jennifer Lawrence, Chloe Moretz, and Emma Stone. Oh and Christian Bale! I have so many favorites! And my favorite movie is definitely Ron Howard’s, “A Beautiful Mind”. One weekend, I watched it five times! Every single time I see it, I discover something new.
5. How does your family feel about your dreams?
I’m blessed with an amazingly supportive family. My parents have always been proponents of any endeavors that my siblings or I have been interested in, which I know we’re all grateful for. My mom especially has willingly made countless sacrifices for me and with any success I have, I credit half of it to her!
We are definitely thrilled to have Olivia be a part of the Page Parkes talent family and cannot wait to see her grow into a star!! She is currently signed with Innovative LA and her agent Robert Haas is helping her towards her goals of being an actress.
