What has Olivia Bromley appeared in?
Before joining Emmerdale in 2018 as a part-time cast member Olivia had already spent the majority of her short career performing on stage.
She has appeared in theatre productions including Dracula, Spent, in Soho, and has performed in A Midsummer Night’s Dream at the National Theatre.
And starred in her first feature film, Here Be Dragons which was released in 2018.
What's next for Emmerdale's Dawn Taylor?
ITV soap viewers have really taken to Dawn and Olivia was nominated for Best Soap Newcomer in the 2019 TV Choice Awards.
Viewers begged for Olivia's heroin addict character to be made permanent when she first appeared, with one saying on Twitter: "Make Dawn a regular please," and another added, "Can Dawn stay?!"
Olivia told Inside Soap that she had no idea what Emmerdale bosses were planning for her role after she joined as part of Ross Barton's acid attack storyline.
She only discovered that she was connected to Harriet after she signed her contract: "Only when I signed up as a regular on the show did I find out what the story team had been planning the whole time.
"I didn't find out about her connection to Harriet until quite late. Their backstory is very clever, and it has been really interestingly written. There will be lots of twists and turns in the road – it's not going to be easy for either Harriet or Dawn.
"It's nice to bring two characters that are totally unrelated, and would seemingly never cross paths, into a story together."

As Dawn and Harriet battle with what they've done killing DI Malone and hiding his body, Olivia says it's all a matter of whether she will be able to cope with her secret.
"But it’s self-defence rather that cold-blooded murder. I’m obviously on Dawn’s side. I empathise with her and what she did.
”I don’t think Dawn will cope well at all. She struggles to keep on top of her emotions and be level-headed at the best of times. After everything she has worked for to get her life on track, such a dark secret weighing on her conscience could see her spiral into self destruction. She is prone to self loathing and rash decisions.”
