Ditching a career in nursing to pursue her true passion of adult entertainment, Olivia Austin is rapidly become one of the industry’s most sought-after actresses, having already earned nominations from both AVN and NightMoves. In addition, this ambitious entertainer is also a successful model, posing for nude and bikini pictures as well as in mainstream commercial modeling.
C.J. Asher – Thanks for taking the time to chat today, Olivia! So, tell me a little about yourself…
Olivia Austin – I’m 27 years old and originally from Seattle, Washington. I went to college for nursing on a scholarship for fastpitch. I realized I wasn’t living the life I wanted, but what other people wanted, and that wasn’t the kind of career I could see myself in. I was always the black sheep of my family. I was different and I realized that I couldn’t have a “normal” job/career/life. Long story short, I moved to Vegas and worked several years in the nightclubs as a cocktail waitress, was introduced to people in the adult industry and here I am!
C.J. Asher – How long have you been an adult film actress?
Olivia Austin – I shot my first adult film in the beginning of December 2014.
C.J. Asher – What other adult entertainment work have you done besides adult film?
Olivia Austin – I’ve done nude modeling, bikini modeling, implied nude and mainstream commercial modeling and acting.
C.J. Asher – How did you choose your stage name?
Olivia Austin – I don’t have some crazy story like a combination of the street I grew up on and pet name, but I just always loved the name Olivia. Austin, Texas is one of my favorite cities, so they kind of just sounded good together!
C.J. Asher – Most people don’t know that being an adult film actress is really hard, physically demanding work! What do you do outside of the industry to relax, unwind and have fun?
Olivia Austin – You are very right. I don’t think anyone could understand the day in and day out of being an adult film actress until they actually experience it! We do work very hard and a lot of the hard work we do is unseen from the general public and fans. I’m a workaholic! It’s always been a habit of mine, but to unwind and relax, I enjoy working out, lifting weights, hiking and hanging out at the beach, playing with my dog and I also enjoy anything to do with art and music.
C.J. Asher – What television shows are you into right now?
Olivia Austin – I have a total guilty pleasure for “The Real Housewives!” I watch the Beverly Hills, Orange County, and New Jersey seasons. Also, I’m really enjoying watching the new documentary series “The People vs. OJ Simpson.” It’s really been so intriguing to watch. I was fairly young when the whole incident occurred; so being able to see and understand how everything played out in order to make such a mark in our American history is so interesting to me.
C.J. Asher – What are your favorite industry-related events to attend?
Olivia Austin – As exhausting as the week of the AVN Expo and Awards show is, it’s definitely something I look forward to. It’s great being able to meet your fans!
C.J. Asher – What advice would you give to someone who wants to become an adult film actress?
Olivia Austin – Make sure it’s something that YOU truly want to do, and don’t do it for anyone else, or just for the paycheck. Making adult films isn’t about coming in, shooting a few films, making a few dollars, and leaving. You will leave an imprint on the Internet forever. That shit doesn’t go away! Make sure that it’s something you are okay dealing with. Also, you have to have thick skin! That’s huge, as in any entertainment industry; you have to take the good with the bad and still be able to hold your head high.
C.J. Asher – Besides the money, of course, what’s your favorite part about being an adult film actress?
Olivia Austin – As I briefly stated in last question, I’m not here for the paycheck. Although, I won’t lie and say that it isn’t nice, but I actually thoroughly enjoy what I’m doing. I could be doing several other things, like being a nurse and making good money, but I chose this career path because I love it and I can finally express and be who I feel I really am!
C.J. Asher – How has being an adult film actress impacted your personal and professional life? Do family and friends know you’re an adult film actress and what do they think about it?
Olivia Austin – At first, it was a little bit of a shock for my close friends, but after the initial shock set in, they understood and realized it all kind of made sense. Now they are all totally supportive.
C.J. Asher – What nominations and awards have you received?
Olivia Austin – I was nominated for Most Spectacular Tits for AVN and for Night Moves it was for Best New Starlet. I’m really hoping for this to be my year!
C.J. Asher – What has been your favorite role/movie you’ve performed in so far?
Olivia Austin – I LOVE doing features. Acting and performing is where my true passion is. Throw some sex into the mix and what else could I ask for? I had such a great experience as the lead role in a Wicked Pictures feature written and directed by Stormy Daniels, “Win A Date with Sophia Blake.” It’ll be released this April.
C.J. Asher – What’s the nicest compliment or rudest comment you’ve ever received from a fan?
Olivia Austin – Like I said before, you have to take the good with the bad! I believe that one true fan will out do ten rude “fans.”
C.J. Asher – What categories of porn do you prefer working in?
Olivia Austin – I love girl-girl, boy-girl, boy-girl-girl and I love anal and BDSM in my personal life. It’s a possibility that I may end up doing it on camera this year!
