ONE of TV’s brightest young actors Olympia Valancehas burst out of her sister’s shadow to be a star in her own right.
The Neighbours favourite told Confidential that after years of comparisons to sister Holly, who also started on the same soap, she feels people are looking at her in a new light.
She said strangers finally would chat to her about her own acting work, rather than quizzing her about her sister.
“I am now Olympia Valance not Olympia,Holly’s little sister,” she said.
Valance told Confidential she felt lucky to work fulltime in Australian television, with opportunities few and far between.
“For actors in Australia there are two shows, Neighbours and Home And Away, where you get to work year round and I feel so lucky to have one of those roles,” she said.
Now, she’s has scored a gig alongside Chris Hemsworth’s wife Elsa Pataky, as an ambassador for L’Oreal Paris.
The pair will be in Sydney today to join a bevy of Sydney A-listers at the Botanicals by L’Oréal
