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.
