Olivia’s acting opportunity began at Mills College in a production of A Midsummer Night’s Dream.

Four years later she would have a major role in Gone with the Wind (1939) and receive her first Academy Award nomination for Best Supporting Actress. Olivia is the only surviving major cast member of GWTW. In 1941, Olivia was nominated for Best Actress in Hold Back the Dawn, but lost the win to her sister, Joan Fontaine (Suspicion-1941). Olivia did win two Academy Awards for Best Actress in To Each His Own (1946) and The Heiress (1949). She was also nominated for her leading role in The Snake Pit (1948). Olivia successfully sued Warner Bros. in 1948 to assist actors with their studio contracts. This action became known as the ‘de Havilland decision.’ Olivia enjoys a quiet life in Paris, France.
