Olivia is a Puppet Maker and Puppeteer. She has recently finished working on Season 3 of His Dark Materials as the Assistant Workshop Manager for the CFX Department and a Puppeteer for one of the Hero characters currently under NDA.
She started off as the Trainee for the CFX Department on Season 1 of His Dark Materials, and then as a Model Maker on Season 2. Doing all three Seasons has given her a wealth of knowledge, both in the workshop and on set. Each year Olivia was given more responsibility and has grown in confidence. Looking forward she wants to keep honing her skills in Dynamic Reference Puppetry, and start working on In Camera and animatronic Creatures for Film and TV.
Olivia has strong leadership skills, and her ability to think logically allows her to work successfully independently and as part of a team, maintaining a strong work ethic throughout.
She graduated with a First Class (hons) Degree from the Royal Welsh College of Music and Drama in 2017, and attended the Curious School of Puppetry course in 2019.
