Olivia de Havilland was a British-American actress. A centenarian, Olivia was among the last surviving actors from the Golden Age of Hollywood Cinema. She first achieved prominence with her performance as ‘Melanie’, a supporting character in the film Gone with the Wind. She then went on to establish herself as a leading lady in the years to follow. One of the most successful actresses in the history of Hollywood, she won two Academy Awards, two Golden Globe Awards, and two New York Film Critics Circle Awards among other prestigious awards. Born in Tokyo to English parents, she moved to California with her mother and sister following her parents’ separation. Primarily raised by her mother, who was once a stage actress, Olivia de Havilland stepped into the world of show business and made her stage debut as a young girl in Alice in Wonderland. More stage roles followed and she had made her Hollywood debut by the time she was in her late-teens. She was often cast opposite popular leading men; her pairing with Errol Flynn became one of the most popular romantic on-screen pairings in Hollywood. Her sister Joan Fontaine was an equally successful actress, and the sibling rivalry between the two was well-known in Hollywood.
