Olivia explained that it was her mum, actress Kate Gorman, who helped her through encouragement and positivity and that after meeting a young Home and Away fan, the former soap star realised that she couldn’t “spread positivity and self-love if I don’t have that for myself”.
“There’s nothing wrong with my body at all and I’ve come to a real place of self-love now and I acknowledge that this is who I am. I am healthy and I’m fit and I’m happy and that’s all that matters,” she explained
“I can’t fix the fact that I’m five foot four and curvy – and that’s beautiful. I can’t change that, I’m not going to be able to grow, or elongate my legs. And if I can’t change it, why on earth am I being upset about it?”
The actress left Australia just two weeks after finishing up on the set of Summer Bay, to join the cast of the Disney+ production.
"I was aware my contract was ending, so I started auditioning for things, then the Disney audition came through and I really loved the role," Olivia told TV WEEK of her big move.
"Two weeks after [finishing] shooting Home And Away, I left to go to Canada," she added, admitting that she "loved being in a new city."
Olivia has also undergone a dramatic and mature makeover with a much shorter hairstyle that didn't go down well with everyone.
"My sister says I look 30 and like a store manager," she said back in January when she debuted her new look, adding: "My brother hates it, so ya, no regrets."
The Home and Away star continued: "I also was picking up my brother from school today and someone asked if I was his mum."
Olivia bid farewell to the iconic soap in 2019 and shared an emotional video of herself leaving the TV set with her co-star James Stewart.
"This clip was taken as I finished my last scene,". she captioned the post on Instagram.
"After 3 years and almost 1000 episodes I completed my journey in the bay. It was the most amazing experience of my life, I will be eternally grateful for all of my cast mates and crew. Thank you to all of you for the constant support and love."
