Olivia Holt co-stars in the show I Didn’t Do It with Austin North, who plays her twin brother. Together with their three best friends, the twins navigate the hilarious and embarrassing moments of their freshman year of high school. You may also know her as Kim on Kickin’ It. We caught up with Olivia to talk about her new show, her unknown (and very interesting) talent, and her most embarrassing moment. Check it out!
Q: Describe your character on I Didn’t Do It.
Olivia: I play the role of Lindy Watson. Lindy is not only a fraternal twin, she’s the twin who has the brains! Her brother is the complete opposite. Lindy’s a very hardworking and passionate person, and she adores her friends. We are similar in some aspects, like our love for our friends, and we’re both into being the best person we can be.
Q: Would you be friends with her in real life?
Olivia: Oh, absolutely. She’s always there for people and she’s really fun to be around!
Q: What’s it like being on set with the rest of the cast?
Olivia: What I love about this cast is that everyone is so unique and super-down-to-earth. Austin [North] is a very laid-back dude. I love that he laughs at all my jokes. Piper [Curda] is so incredibly sweet and the most adorable human being. She has the biggest heart and that’s what I love most about her. Sarah [Gilman] has the best sense of humor and she’s also very mischievous. I love her energy! Peyton [Clark] is a super-fun guy. When it comes to the intense games we play, though, he’s the most competitive.
There have been a few on-set pranks. The one that sticks out the most is when Sarah put a giant (fake) spider in my dressing room bathroom sink. I’m terrified of spiders and when I walked in there and saw it, I screamed.
Q: What is an unusual talent most people don’t know that you have?
Olivia: I was a competitive gymnast for seven years, so I’m constantly doing flips around the house. I can also walk just on my hands and I’ll walk around the house like that.
Q: Who was your first celebrity crush?
Olivia: My first celebrity crush was Jeremy Sumpter, who played Peter Pan in the live-action film Peter Pan. I saw that movie in theaters when I was younger and had the biggest crush on him.
Q: What’s the funniest or most embarrassing thing that’s ever happened to you?
Olivia: In seventh grade I was in my science class and chewing gum, and somehow the gum fell out of my mouth and into my hair. It got all tangled in there and the whole class saw. So embarrassing! But looking back, it was pretty hilarious.
Q: What is one thing you wish everyone would do to make the world a better place?
Olivia: I am an advocate against bullying and a big believer in the saying, “If you don’t have anything nice to say, don’t say anything at all.” If everyone tried to keep this little saying in the back of his or her mind, I feel like the world would start becoming a better place.
Olivia seriously seems like the coolest girl ever. I wish I could walk around on my hands! Are you a fan of Olivia (and/or I Didn’t Do It)? Share your thoughts in the Comments below!
