Olivia Williams

Born in Camden Town, London, Olivia graduated from Cambridge University with an English degree before studying drama at the Bristol Old Vic Theatre School.

Since then she has starred in several movies, including The Sixth Sense (1999), Rushmore (1998), The Heart of Me (2002) for which she won Best Actress at the British Independent Film Awards, Peter Pan (2003), X-Men: The Last Stand (2006) and Miss Austen Regrets (2008)
