Hollyoaks casts BAFTA Award-winning actress Emily Burnett as newcomer Olivia

BAFTA Award-winning actress Emily Burnett has joined the cast of Hollyoaks as mysterious Olivia.

Olivia, whose arrival in the village coincides with Prince McQueen’s (Malique Thompson-Dwyer) return, will cause quite the stir, particularly among members of the McQueen clan!

Her self-assuredness, not to mention her love for the finer things in life, are proof that she knows what she wants and how to get it.

But, the question is: with a new role at Hollyoaks High on the horizon, just how far will she go?

‘I am so excited to be joining the cast of Hollyoaks,’ said Emily on her casting. ‘Especially working with Malique and Chelsee – and getting to (hopefully) be a member of the legendary McQueen family.

‘What to expect from Olivia? Well, she’s classy, very sassy and knows exactly what she wants.

‘She is probably someone you don’t want to get on the wrong side of – but I think she has a good heart deep down – especially when it comes to Prince. I can’t wait for everyone to meet her in September.’

Olivia will arrive in Hollyoaks on Wednesday September 8 on E4, and again on Thursday September 9 on Channel 4.

Emily is best known to audiences for for her BAFTA award-winning role as Charlie in The Dumping Ground.

She has also appeared in So Awkward, The Dumping Ground Survival Files and Doctors.

Hollyoaks will air Olivia’s arrival on Wednesday September 8 on E4.
