'Love Actually': This Is "Joanna" Today
No matter how many times we watch Love Actually, "Joanna" singing "All I Want For Christmas Is You" always gives us chills! Today, singer and actress Olivia Olson is all grown up and GORGEOUS! Check out what the American star is up to now!
In 2003, Olivia Olson had her film debut in the romantic comedy Love Actually, starring an ensemble cast of Liam Neeson, Emma Thompson, Hugh Grant and Keira Knightley, just to name a few! Little did she know, her powerful voice singing "All I Want For Christmas Is You" to "Sam" (Thomas Brodie-Sangster) would swoon the hearts of many!
Love Actually: This Is "Joanna" Today
Three years after the hit film, the 28-year-old went to voice act in the Disney animated series Phineas and Ferb... all the way until 2015! Funny enough, while Olivia stars as "Vanessa" in the series, her love interest "Ferb" is played by none other than her love interest in Love Actually - Thomas Brodie-Sangster. This is what Olivia looks like today...
Incredibly gorgeous, right? The beauty would voice in another cartoon series from 2010-2018: Adventure Time. Another fun fact: her Emmy award-winning father Martin Olson portrays her cartoon father in the same series! The pair even co-wrote a novel together based on the series titled Adventure Time's: The Enchiridion & Marcy's Super Secret Scrapbook.
The actress is still singing, too! In the summer of 2018, she released her album Nowhere Land. Late last year, Olivia also competed in the UK's The X Factor: Celebrity.
In 2020, she reprised her voice role in Adventure Time, but this time for a web series titled Adventure Time: Distant Lands.
Now, here's some heartwarming pics of her and her dad, Martin, who was also the head-writer for Phineas and Ferb.
We would love to see more of her and her voice in more films and series!
