Olivia Thirlby is a wonderful actress who can be seen playing a psychic cop who gets caught up in an intense situation the first day on the job in last summer’s remake of Dredd. I first noticed her opposite Jason Schwartzman in HBO’s Bored to Death. She can be seen most recently in Nobody Walks and Being Flynn. You can catch her in the upcoming film Red Knot.

Olivia grew up in Manhattan in the East Village and was classically trained in Shakespearian acting the American Globe Theatre and the Royal Academy of Dramatic Art (at which time she also trained in stage combat at the British Academy of Stage & Screen Combat). She has also participated in the Self Evident Truths project as an advocate against LGBTQ discrimination.
