Olivia Kate Cooke (born 27 December 1993 in Oldham, England) is an English actress.

She is known for her roles as Emma Decody in the A&E drama thriller series Bates Motel, Rachel Kushner in the comedy-drama film Me and Earl and the Dying Girl, Samantha Cook in Ready Player One, Becky Sharp in the period drama miniseries Vanity Fair and Alicent Hightower in House of the Dragon. In 2021, she played Dark Voice in the podcast Soft Voice.





Tropes associated with her work:

  • Fake American: Cooke is British, but she knows how to imitate an American accent, as Bates Motel can prove. Little Fish however lets her use her own Manchester accent.
  • Hollywood Homely: For some strange reason, Hollywood desperately tries to cast Cooke in these roles, especially in Bates Motel and Ready Player One.
  • Oop North: She's from Manchester and has a noticeably heavy accent.
