Christmas season is upon us. That means long lines at stores, garish light displays, and trips to see a dozen different relatives across the country. It also means the annual tradition of watching favorite Christmas movies over and over and over again has begun, as well. The most notable of these is the 24 hours of “A Christmas Story” (“you’ll shoot your eye out”) being run on TBS every Christmas day since 1997.
However, the past decade has brought a new entry to the list of must-watch Christmas films, “Love Actually”. This quirky British ensemble comedy was a minor hit in the United States when it was first released in 2003. It has since gone on to become a new favorite among Christmas-philes. Part of its novelty comes from having a cast that ran the gamut on the famous meter. It had well known actors such as Hugh Grant, Liam Neeson, and Kiera Knightley; it had lesser known actors like Chiwetel Ejiofor and Andrew Lincoln (who you will all know as Rick from “The Walking Dead”); and brand new actors like the incredibly adorable American actress, Olivia Olson, who blew audiences way with her powerhouse rendition of “All I Want For Christmas Is You”.
Following that breakout role, Olivia has remained relatively out of the spotlight; seemingly content to live the life of a typical American teenager while keeping an eye on developing her singing career.
While she has been low-key and working on her music, she has lent her voice to the role of Vanessa Doofenshmirtz in the animated series “Phineas and Ferb” and Marceline the Vampire Queen in “Adventure Time”.
As you can see, the now 20-year old Olson has grown into a gorgeous young woman. She is also gorgeous young woman who appreciates body art, as witnessed by the very pretty rose tattoo on her lower right arm.
