Olympia Valance has been steaming up our screens for years as the cheeky and sultry Paige on Neighbours. With the delicious lure of Hollywood in her sights, most recently the brunette beauty was labeled ‘the next Margot Robbie’ by W Magazine, Olympia is keeping herself busy (and showing off her ridiculous body) in the new underwear campaign for Nancy Ganz.
Touted as sexy shapewear or ‘lingerie with benefits, Olympia flaunts her curves, proving shapewear is for everyone.
‘Nancy Ganz has incredible products to suit all women and make you feel sexy and confident, which to me, are the most important things when getting dressed. That inner self assurance is something that radiates from the inside out and I wanted to get this message out there, so more women reap the rewards!’
A fitness fiend, Olympia favours F 45 classes (a 45 minute high intensity workout) as well as a mostly paleo diet for her killer bod.
‘It was only once I started eating really well and exercising regularly that I’ve achieved my optimal body,’ Olympia revealed to another publication.
The paleo diet bans dairy, cereals and grains, potatoes, refined sugar, processed food and salt.
Olympia also admitted late last year that she’d undergone a breast reduction surgery.
‘I’ve had a breast reduction and it changed my life,’ she revealed to Express. ‘It was the best thing I ever did. I love my body and I love myself. It took a long time for me to say that.’
Olympia began her career following in the footsteps of her famous older sister, Holly Candy (nee Valance) when she landed the role of Paige Smith on Neighbours. Holly, who is now married to UK billionaire Nick Candy, appeared on the long running soap from 1999-2002 where she played the role of Felicity Scully.
Now, the actress is hoping to follow in Margot Robbie’s footsteps, another famous Neighbours export as she plans a move overseas. The pressure of the comparison between the two starlets doesn’t faze Olympia. Let the comparisons begin.
‘I don't think there is any kind of pressure. Margot is awesome, and I’ve loved watching her progress. As a young Australian actor myself, what she is achieving is everything I could hope for, and more.’ Olympia admitted to the Herald Sun. ‘It really excites me. As an Aussie, I’ve loved watching the country get behind Margot and cheering her on as she found incredible success overseas. There has never been and kind of tall poppy vibes directed towards her from the media at all, it has instead felt like a nationwide camaraderie, because one of our own is doing so well.’
