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.
