Speaking on the latest episode of our Before They Knew Better podcast - available to listen now on Spotify, Apple, and Amazon - Olivia chats to us about attending the BRIT School, settling into her new place, and The Lion King live stage show.
“I got down to the final three in auditions and I was in ‘cub school’, where they train you and get your costume fitted”, she shares. “Everything was going fab. But by the end of the training I was too tall; I was taller than the Simba, so they had to let me go.”
Before They Knew Better is DIY’s new podcast digging into the wins, woes and wtfs of your favourite musicians’ early years, hosted by Lisa Wright and Giles Bidder, with a new episode landing every Tuesday morning.
