Olivia Holt Doesn't Take Anything in Her Life for Granted

Olivia Holt Doesn't Take Anything in Her Life for Granted

Olivia Holt has already launched an amazing career as a Disney Channel actress and singer, but she doesn’t take one moment of it for granted.

“I don’t take one thing in my life for granted,” the 20-year-old “History” singer told Refinery29 in a statement for their Gen. Z superstar roundup. “I truly believe that every mistake I’ve made, every person I’ve met and every place I’ve traveled to has all happened for a reason.”

Her other motto is, regardless of her success, to take risks and enjoy her life in the moment.

“I also don’t take life too seriously,” Olivia continued. “We’re only here for such a short amount of time it’s so important to take that time and live it so fiercely. I have to dare myself to do things I wouldn’t normally dare myself to do. Moral to this message: I put ketchup on everything.”

Honestly, ketchup on everything is a motto all of us can get behind.

Olivia Holt Loves The Feeling That Songwriting Gives Her

Olivia Holt Loves The Feeling That Songwriting Gives Her

Olivia Holt‘s new music is coming soon — and JJJ can hardly wait.

The “History” singer opened up with Rogue magazine about new music, and how therapeutic songwriting can be for her.

“When I was younger I never considered myself a songwriter,” Olivia admits. “I always considered myself just a singer, but being in rooms with all these writers and producers and bouncing ideas off of each other, and [recounting] real life experiences that I’ve had and putting them into a song is a really exhilarating feeling.”

She continues, “Every time I walk into the studio and we write something, whether it’s something I’m going to put out or not, I feel really confident and proud of it, and it’s worth it.”

Olivia adds, “It’s fun and it’s overwhelming and scary; you’re kind of speaking from your heart and your experiences, which sometimes [I] feel a little timid sharing, but I’m really enjoying it.”

Olivia Holt Says 'Kickin' It' Was The Best Launching Pad Ever

Olivia Holt Says 'Kickin' It' Was The Best Launching Pad Ever

Most of us came to know and love Olivia Holt as Kim Crawford in Disney XD’s Kickin’ It, and the actress will forever be grateful for the series.

Speaking with Rogue magazine, Olivia opened up about how the show truly launched her career.

“I think it was a good transition for me, being able to work on a sitcom every single day for 6 years, and having that high energy,” she says, adding that it was perfect before her movie career took off.

“Going to an indie film where the energy is more relaxed and I’m playing a completely different character…it was a good challenge for me,” Olivia adds. “I feel like that just shapes me into a better human and helps me evolve as an actor.”

TELL JJJ: What were your favorite episodes of Kickin’ It?

Olivia Holt Spills On The Challenge Marvel's 'Cloak & Dagger' Will Bring For Her

Olivia Holt Spills On The Challenge Marvel's 'Cloak & Dagger' Will Bring For Her

Olivia Holt will be heading back to filming on her new Freeform series, Marvel’s Cloak & Dagger, really soon.

The actress and singer isn’t supposed to really talk about plot details or anything, but she is giving us a little something in her new interview with HuffPo’s The Tea newsletter.

“I am really looking forward to everyone seeing it,” Olivia says. “It’s a really honest show, and even though it’s about two superheroes, it really brings this truth behind kids who grow up in a broken home.”

She adds, “For the audience who doesn’t know about the comic, I think they’re really going to love it. And for the audience that grew up reading the comics, I think they’re going to love it even more.”

Olivia also talked about the darkness of the show and the challenge it brings for her.

“It’s definitely a challenge, but it’s a good challenge for me,” she says. “Working with Disney for as long as I did — it was the perfect place for me at that time. That’s exactly what I needed to be doing and everything I needed to be learning.”

She adds, “Now, moving onto other roles and darker material, it’s giving me a chance to expand my range.”

The series is set to premiere in 2018 on Freeform.
