She also appeared alongside Matthew Broderick in a stage production of “The Odd Couple”, and ventured into voice acting, and voiced Sonya Blade in “Mortal Kombat: Defenders of the Realm”. She also worked on “Batman Beyond”, “Justice League”, and “Invader Zim”, and well as providing the voice of Jane Porter in the series “The Legend of Tarzan”, and Jedi Master Luminara Unduli in “Star Wars: The Clone Wars”.

Other Projects and Recent Endeavors

After more voice roles in “Green Lantern: First Flight” and “Ultimate Avengers”, Olivia filmed live action sequences for “Tesla Effect: A Tex Murphy Adventure”, which is known for combining live action with 3D.

Aside from her acting projects, she is also an established singer and musician. She has composed and performed several singles for various soundtracks she’s worked on, and performed a duet with Seal in “Broken”, as well as providing backing vocals for Julian Lennon, plus co-writing the single “Love Comes from the Inside” by Laura Pausini.

In 2015, she started a weekly podcast entitled “Every Friday with Dan and Olivia” which she co-hosted alongside Dan Miles, and became a guest in the podcast “TV Guidance Counselor”.  During the same year she worked on the Hallmark film “When Duty Calls” which starred Daniella Monet and Kelly Blatz, and did voice work in the video game entitled “Infinite Crisis” as the character Gaslight Catwoman; however, the game was shut down within a year. She has also done independent film work, including projects such as “Blue Weekend”, “Robo-Dog”, “Stolen from the Suburbs”, and ‘A Christmas Eve Miracle”.

Personal Life

For her personal life, it is known that d’Abo was engaged to Julian Lennon in the early 1990s, and the two worked together on a few music projects before they broke up. She was then engaged to actor Thomas Jane in 1998, staying together for three years before calling things off, meantime working on several projects including “The Velocity of Gary”. A year later, she married music producer Patrick Leonard who is known for his longtime collaboration with Madonna, and with several other high profile artists such as Pink Floyd, Elton John, Rod Stewart, Michael Jackson, and Jewel. They stayed together for a decade until Leonard filed for divorce at the Los Angeles County Superior Court, citing irreconcilable differences. It was then revealed that the two had separated a year earlier. They have a child together.

Similar to numerous actresses, she is active online through an account on the major social media website Twitter, on which she promotes a lot of her recent projects including her podcast. She also shares some of her daily thoughts through the platform. She mentioned in an interview that music is one of her biggest passions, and it has been with her even as she found numerous acting projects.

# Quote
1 Music has always been a huge passion in my life. I’ve just had such success with my acting that it’s really been right alongside of it, and I’ve always been writing and playing and singing.
2 I’ve been writing and composing songs since I was 5 years old.
3 With thrillers, there’s such a fine line between what’s good and what’s cheesy and corny.
4 You want to find out what it is about you or what it is about your past and your lineage that’s in you now, and whether you carry those traits and maybe what one’s mission is to take it to the next level.
5 I like roles of people who can overcome things because there’s strength in that and an arc – and roles where they start in one place, and toward the end of the script they end up in a completely different place, so you’ve seen this growth and some humanity in the role.
6 Doing Broadway was always a dream of mine since I was a little girl.
7 I’ve always wanted to play ‘Lady Macbeth’ and Strindberg’s ‘Miss Julie’.
8 I think one’s history and past is important at a certain time in your life, especially as an artist, just to try to hone in on that.
