Olivia Rodrigo

Olivia Rodrigo is a teenage actress who began her career in 2015. She is known for her role as Paige Olvera in the comedy series Bizaardvark on Disney Network. This one is a rather short profile of the star. And it is not surprising to tell why; she is still a toddler (a star but still just beginning) in an industry that she is poised to own. You can come back in a few years’ time if you like. Now, here are all the facts you need to know about the star.

Olivia Rodrigo – age and heritage

Olivia Rodrigo was born Olivia Isabel Rodrigo on February 20, 2003. She was born in Temecula, California. She is an Asian American whose great grandfather came from the Philipines and, according to her, they still have Filipino food and have relations who still speak Tagalog today. She hasn’t been to her ancestral country but she admits this is somewhere at the top of her bucket list.

Ms. Rodrigo didn’t attend a normal high school like every kid out there. While for many teenage actors, their education is delayed, Olivia and co. just grabbed the school and carried it to the set. “We have a four-person high school that we make on set so it’s kind of funny,” she said which doesn’t make much sense to me but which I will pretend to understand.

Olivia Rodrigo is eighteen years old.


The story of how Olivia became an actress is rather a fine one. It started because she could sing and so she enrolled in a singing class. One day, her teacher said to her: “Wow you’re really expressive with singing, maybe you should take an acting class.” And she took an acting class. After a few acting classes, the said the teacher said, “Do you want to do this professionally, try some auditions.” She was eleven years old.

She attended tons of auditions. At around 12, she got the role of Paige Olvera in Disney’s “Bizaardvark” in 2016. She went on to play the co-lead in the series that was on for three seasons and 63 episodes up to 2019. She was in the 2015 film “An American Girl: Grace Stirs Up Success” in which she played the title role of Grace Thomas the girl who baked her way to stardom.

In 2019, she joined the cast of “High School Musical: High School: The Series” the mockumentary series “a group of students at East High who stage a performance of High School Musical for their winter theater production, only to realize that there is as much drama that happens offstage as there is onstage” on disney+.

It wasn’t just acting for Olivia in the show for she debuted her song-writing skills. She wrote the song “All I Want”.

Tim Friedre the creator of the show was enthused in his praise of her: “Olivia wrote this emotional, in-depth song in just three days while filming the series and going to school. She has shown her strength not only as a composer and performer but also a young woman who brilliantly channeled what the Nini character is going through as she begins to take control of her own narrative.”

She was also in “Paved New World” as one of the two teen skateboarding students who watched their idol negotiate a suicidal skate trick.

Although Filipinos are generally seen as people of color and Asian Americans, their cultural and historical ties with Spain see people sometimes refer to them as Hispanics. But Olivia has admitted that she has not been ethnically pigeon-holed and has been cast for roles of all nationalities.


Olivia is also a hot-shot singer. On January 8, 2021, she released her first single, “Drivers License”, a song she co-wrote with producer Dan Nigro. The song changed the course of Olivia’s life. She became a household name as the song went did magic on streaming sites, particularly going on a record-breaking spree on Spotify, smashing the record of the first song to hit 80 million streams in seven days.

The song was also number one in Billboard Hot 100 in the US and many countries.

Rodrigo would later describe this period as “the absolute craziest week of my life”.

In April and in May 2021, Olivia released “Deva Ju” and “Good 4 U” which did well on Billboard. On May 21, 2021, she released “Sour” her debut album which was acclaimed as the “greatest coming-of-age album since early Taylor Swift or Lorde”. Olivia cites these two as her idols.

Rodrigo said she wanted “Sour” to be super versatile. “My dream is to have it be an intersection between mainstream pop, folk music, and alternative rock.”

Rodrigo has defied descriptions. She has variously been described as pop, pop-rock, teen pop, indie pop, alternative pop, and bubblegum pop artist. We will add to the litany of adjectives. She is red-hot.

In October 2021, MTV Europe Music Award announced its list of nominations. Justin Bieber led with eight nominations. Olivia showed her rising mettle when she was nominated in five categories.

Olivia Rodrigo, who is regarded as a breakout pop sensation of the year, is making her MTV EMAs debut with nominations in five categories including Best Pop, Best Song for “drivers license”, Best New, Best Push, and Best US Act. The song was well-received by critics and fans alike and it went on a record-breaking spree including becoming the first song to hit 80 million streams in seven days.

Olivia has also been nominated by iHeartRadion Music Awards, LOS40 Music Awards, MTV Millenial Awards, MTV Millenial Awards Brazil, MTV Video Music Awards where she won Song of the Year, and Push Performance of the Year. Myx Music Awards, Nickelodeon Mexico Kids’ Choice Awards, Time 100 Next, and UK Music Video Awards are some of the other awards she was nominated for.

The event would take place at the Papp Laszlo Budapest Sportarena in Budapest, Hungary, in November 2021.

Olivia Rodrigo – Relationship

According to some fan page entry on Olivia and confirmed by a couple of loved-up pictures between the two on Google, she is in a relationship with the Youtuber and actor Ethan Wacker. He was born in 2002 and a year older than Olivia. The two met on the set of “Bizaardvark” in which he played the role of Bernie.

We do not know how true this relationship claim is, but then, whatever it was, it went the way of many teenagers’ relationships.

While we can’t confirm this, we can report with stronger authority that once dated her High School Musical: The Musical: The Series co-star Joshua Bassett. They have broken up and it was said that there was some drama in it.

In June 2021, E! reported that the red-hot singer is dating someone new, the producer Adam Faze. A source close to Rodrigo told the outlet that she brought Faze as her plus one to the “Space Jam 2” premiere and introduced him as her boyfriend.

The couple confirmed being an item when they were photographed kissing in July 2021.

Note that this Olivia Rodrigo post is being updated. For now, we are not comfortable writing about her body stats and net worth and all those kind of stuff. These are for the future time. When she is in her twenties and raking in news items and money, we will throw the typewriter on her.
