Olivia Isabel Rodrigo was born in Murrieta, California on February 20, 2003. Temecula was her hometown, and she grew up there. On her father’s side, she is Filipino, and on her mother’s side, she is German/Irish. Olivia’s father works as a family therapist, and her mother teaches in a public school.
Olivia began taking acting and singing lessons at the age of six and was soon performing in local theatre performances. Her parents’ appreciation of alternative bands from the 1990s, such as Green Day, No Doubt, and Pearl Jam, inspired her to take guitar lessons when she was 12 years old.
Olivia began exploring professional acting opportunities soon after, landing modeling and commercial work. An ad for Old Navy was a significant early success.
In 2015, she starred in “An American Girl: Grace Stirs Up Succeeds,” a straight-to-video film. The film was eventually broadcast on Disney Channel and Netflix, albeit her name was misspelled in the credits on Netflix as “Olivo Rodrigo.”
Olivia won a lead role in the Disney Channel sitcom “Bizaardvark” in 2016. She co-starred in the show with Jake Paul, a future social media sensation. Olivia appeared in the show from its inception in 2016 till its conclusion in 2019.
