Olivia Barash began her work in the entertainment industry at the young age of five years old. During her early years of acting, singing and dancing in classic musicals on stage in New York, Olivia starred as “Baby June” in Gypsy with Angela Lansbury. She was the first child actor to win the acclaimed New York Critics Award.
Moving to Hollywood to expand her acting experience, Olivia’s career took on a new turn in television and feature films. One of her most memorable roles, the controversial character “Sylvia” in Little House On The Prairie, propelled her to receive consideration for an Emmy Award nomination. That led to the female lead role of “Leila” in the cult film classic, Repo Man. Olivia was then written into the hit T.V. series, Fame.
Evolving as an indie film actor, she worked with a range of Hollywood greats including Robert Downey, Jr. and Johnny Depp. Crossing over into a recording career, as a signed composer/ recording-artist with Warner Chappell Music, Barash performed her original music for motion pictures such as Oliver Stone's The Doors.
Bringing together her diverse experience and talents to the other side of the camera, in 2013 Barash began directing, writing and producing with Fallout Entertainment. She has directed music videos for bands such as Fishbone, and her documentary feature film, Friends Of The Viper Room. Olivia has been in production on BarkvilleTV for the last year with her new production company, Original Pixel Cowboys.
