The closest thing to a real-life Buffy Summers or Kim Possible.
Olivia Hastings Holt (born August 5, 1997 in Germantown, Tennessee) is an American teen actress and singer, best known for portraying Kim Crawford on the Disney XD series Kickin' It, and Skylar in the Disney Channel Original Movie Girl vs. Monster. In addition to acting and singing, she has been a competitive gymnast since she was 9 and is a cheerleader, having competed in numerous cheer-tournaments. She also starred as Lindy Watson in the short-lived Disney Channel series I Didn't Do It. In addition, she signed to Hollywood Records in 2014. In 2018, she starred as one half of the Marvel Comics superhero duo Cloak and Dagger in a live-action television adaptation of the same name.

Tropes that apply to Olivia are:

  • Award-Bait Song: Performed one for the Disneynature movie Bears, entitled "Carry On".
  • Child Popstar: She was once a Kidz Bop vocalist.
  • Fan Community Nicknames: Olivians.
  • Idol Singer: During her Disney Channel days.
  • Playing Against Type: She auditioned for Tandy in Cloak & Dagger because she wanted to do something darker and more mature than her squeaky-clean Disney roles. Considering that the premiere episode had her character roofie a guy so she could rob him, abuse drugs, have sex in a pickup truck, nearly be raped, and possibly kill someone, it worked.
