‘Because I was on TV from such a young age, people always commented on my weight because I fluctuated a lot,’ she revealed.

‘Growing up in this industry, people always want you to be insecure because it makes them feel better about themselves,’ she continued.

However Deeble says that she has learned to love her body.


‘I love my body, but it’s taken me long time to go, “No, I am beautiful”, and as women, we need to love our bodies… If people are scrutinising you because of your weight that’s so unfair and so ridiculous.’

Olivia – who starred as Raffy Morrison on the hit Aussie soap – is currently trying her luck in Hollywood.


Since her move, she has landed roles as Princess Roxana in the Disney+ film Secret Society of Second Born Royals.
