About Olivia

Olivia is the shy girl of the group and lives with her grandma after her mother died when she was a child. While it was never explained why her father was put in prison. Although Olivia loves him, she is embarrassed to talk about him or to him; which may explain why she is so shy.

She narrates the whole movie through a letter she writes to her dad. In the book, after she writes a letter, she goes with the other members of Lemonade Mouth to visit her father in prison.

The only thing she has left of her mom is her cat, Nancy. In the movie, the rest of the band wonders where she was, and they walk to her house. They find Olivia in the backyard crying since Nancy, her cat died.  She doesn't have a lot of friends since she is very timid. She's a mega bookworm and is very intelligent proven when she provided a correct definition for Determinate to Wen, however, she doesn't have a lot of confidence. She does not like lots of attention (as it causes her to throw up), but she is an amazing singer and songwriter. She typically wears dresses with large belts and short cardigans.

"Olivia is a shy girl who lives with her grandmother and her cat. The last thing Olivia wants is anything that draws attention to herself, but she's an incredible singer and songwriter and her growing feelings for Wen, Lemonade Mouth's future keyboardist, convinces her to give the band a shot."


  • (To Wen about her grandmother's remark about her first encounter with Olivia's friends) "She was just kidding about the whole friend thing. She's met a ton of my friends, tons and tons of...friends."
  • "That was nothing. I...I think I'm gonna be sick."
  • "But it's probably not the best idea to go out there. You know, physically."
  • "Yeah, I don't think that's such a good idea. Last time I got on stage was our first grade concert, and five minutes into Baa Baa Black Sheep, I threw up down Mikey Nichol's back."
  • "And that was how we got our band name"
  • (To Wen) "FOR YOU, YOU JERK... I did it for you."
