!! This actress provides examples of:

* HappilyMarried: To David Glen Eisley.
* RavenHairIvorySkin
* WhyDidItHaveToBeSnakes: Olivia suffered from agoraphobia.


* DawsonCasting: Famously averted, or at least downplayed. Olivia was actually a teenager when she played Juliet. [[note]]The character of Juliet was meant to be ''13-going-on-14'' though, in Shakespeare's play. The actress was 16 or 17 at the time of filming.[[/note]]



* ModestyBedsheet: ZigZagged during Romeo and Juliet: Hussey has one of these during a scene featuring her Juliet and Romeo in bed together, post-nuptuals. There was some controversy when Franco Zefferelli kept a split-second shot of her breasts exposed, despite her being under 18. There's a famous story that she was kept out of the London premiere of the film because she was still not yet 18, and there was nudity depicted in the film. The nudity was her own body.
* RapunzelHair: The long hair she wore as Juliet reportedly inspired a huge number of young women in the late Sixties to grow waist-length hair like hers.
