Singer and actress Olivia Rodrigo, who hails from the United States, has an estimated net worth of $5 million. Olivia first came to public attention for her acting roles in a number of Disney television series. In addition to being a tremendously successful musician, she is also a well-known figure on social media.
The first studio album Olivia ever recorded, titled “Sour,” was issued by Geffen Records in May of 2021. This album gave rise to a number of successful songs, including “Driver’s License,” “Deja Vu,” and “Good 4 U.”
Olivia Rodrigo Early Life
On February 20, 2003, Olivia Isabel Rodrigo was born in Murrieta, California. She was born and raised in Temecula. She has German/Irish ancestry from her mother’s side and Filipino ancestry from her father. Her mother is a school teacher, while Olivia’s father is a family therapist.
When Olivia was six years old, she started taking acting and singing lessons, and soon she was performing in regional theatre plays. As a result of her parents’ love of alternative bands from the 1990s including Green Day, No Doubt, and Pearl Jam, she began taking guitar lessons when she was 12 years old.
Olivia quickly started looking for acting jobs, and she eventually got some modeling and commercial work. An Old Navy commercial was a significant early success.
She appeared in the 2015 direct-to-video film “An American Girl: Grace Stirs Up Succeeds” as the lead. Later, the film would be available on Netflix and the Disney Channel, but on Netflix, her name was misspelled in the credits as “Olivo Rodrigo.”
