Olivia Jampol

Olivia is an actor, writer and filmmaker living in Brooklyn, New York. 

She spent her childhood running around mostly naked through the coffee fields of Costa Rica and performing for guests at the bed & breakfast where she grew up. She left her tropical home for frigid Boston to attend Harvard University where she studied Filmmaking and Literature. Now she lives in Brooklyn.

She is a former member of the Bats, the resident acting company at the award-winning Flea Theater in New York. Recent productions include, Neighborhood 3: Requisition of Doom, directed by Joel Schumacher, Wolf in The River, written & directed by Adam Rapp, and the world premiere of NYT Critics' PickAJAX by A.R. Gurney, directed by Stafford Arima. She has been in over a dozen award-winning shorts, and has been lauded for her strong presence and sharp sense of humor.

Next to acting, her other love is filmmaking; her short film, JEANNIE, shot on 16mm, has garnered accolades at numerous festivals and is in the permanent collection at MoCAD. She is a co-founder of Five Minutes Late, a production company & sketch comedy group currently developing their first narrative film.
