Olivia Holt was an American singer and actress who broke out in 2018 when she began appearing as one of the main characters, Dagger, on the Marvel superhero series "Cloak & Dagger" (Freeform, 2018-). Born in Germantown, Tennessee and raised in Mississippi, Holt always had a penchant for performing. She began acting in local community plays when she was a very young girl, and was also an accomplished gymnast. By the age of 10 Holt was booking commercials for such popular brands as Mattel and Hasbro, and before long felt confident enough to give Hollywood a try. She moved to LA with her parents at the age of 11 and immediately began auditioning for film and TV roles. Given her background as a gymnast, Holt was cast in her first TV role relatively quickly on the Disney XD martial arts series "Kickin' It" (Disney XD, 2011-15). Holt played the character Kim Crawford on all four seasons of the show. After "Kickin' It" ended its run in 2015, Holt went on to nab recurring parts on shows like "I Didn't Do It" (Disney Channel, 2014-15) and "The Evermoor Chronicles" (Disney Channel, 2014-). It was also around this time that Holt began working as a professional singer. She was signed by Hollywood Records in 2014 and released her self-titled EP "Olivia" in 2016. With both her acting and singing career on the rise, Holt landed her breakout acting role in 2018 when she was cast in a starring role on the Freeform superhero series "Cloak & Dagger." Holt played a teenager with superpowers called Dagger on the series, which premiered on the Freeform network in June of 2018.
