A Look at True Blood’s Dawn Olivieri

April 1, 2010

Dawn Olivieri has recently been cast to play the part of Janice Herveaux, sister to werewolf, Alcide Herveaux.  Runway Magazine recently sat down with the actress to learn a little bit more about her and her career.  We all know that Dawn is extremely beautiful and has a raw talent for her profession. She has appeared in over ten television projects including, CBS’s “How I Met Your Mother“, HBO’s “Entourage“, SyFy’s “Stargate: Atlantis”, and NBC’s “Knight Rider”, just to name a few. This past year Dawn took on the role of Lydia on season 4 of the acclaimed NBC “Heroes” series.
When asked what she liked about her profession, she simply answered,

“The endless possibilities”

She explains that her most memorable experiences come from working in the moment and being able to mark it up as an achievement is just a bonus!

To learn a little bit more about the actress, she was asked about her favorite thing in her closet, her favorite designer, some of her influences, and her favorite spot on Earth.

Dawn explains that her favorite thing in her closet are her black, beat up motorcycle boots.  She is super big into vintage clothing so her favorite designer is simply history and her influences are life in general.  She says she feels like she is a sponge, and her favorite spot on Earth is her head where she has her,

“dreams, memories, challenges, and everything in between”.

When asked what she does for fun, Dawn responded saying:

“I am an outside junkie, so anything involving fresh air, sign me up!”.

Dawn talks about how there are no limits to the possibilities that await her in the future. Well, for 2010 Dawn is already one busy girl. Besides filming for True Blood, she has several film projects on the calendar including the Hallmark film, “Xtra Credits”, a comedy called, “Drop Dead Gorgeous”, and a thriller, “Dozers”. Dawn’s advice to aspiring actors:

“Find what sets you apart. The real you. Truth comes from yourself first, and only then can you translate it into your work.”

We look forward to seeing Dawn‘s work on the upcoming season 3 of True Blood.
