Awesome / Olivia Tennet

  • According to this 2003 article from The New Zealand Herald, Olivia won a Mercedes-Benz at a raffle during a horse race valued at NZ$48,000 at eleven years old.
  • Also in 2003, Olivia won Best Actress at the NZ Drifting Clouds Film Festival for her role as Megan in a short film titled Watermark, beating out the adult nominees that year.
  • Many fans of Power Rangers RPM have high regard for Olivia's acting abilities in portraying the role of Dr. K—a difficult role as her character must provide explanations laced in technobabble along with her terrifying past. But what makes it even more awesome is that she began her time on that show at only seventeen years old.
    • The more you really look at Dr. K, the more Olivia's ability is apparent. Alongside having to convey Dr. K's tragic past, there's also trying to hold down an American accent while cutting through some really confusing dialogue. There's also the fact that, as a life-long dancer, she will develop a natural grace to her movement that carries even when she isn't dancing, and she was still able to work against that and make Dr. K act a little stumpy and uncoordinated. All while still a teenager.
  • Being cast as Dorothy in The Wizard of Oz? Awesome. Having Judy Garland as one of your idols? Even more awesome. Having the production in the middle of the 2011 Rugby World Cup, with audiences from all over the world? Amazing. Wanting to be Dorothy since she was four years old, and now finally getting a chance to live out her dream? This might as well be her Crowning Moment of Awesome of all her Crowning Moments of Awesome.
  • Following the Blood Punch screening at its world premiere, Olivia begins talking about her character. Many audience members were surprised to hear her natural accent and more girly voice after having seen her on screen as the chain-smoking Femme Fatale character Skyler who spoke in a nearly flawless American accent and had a slight raspiness to her voice.
