Argentine isn’t a race. It’s a nationality. Olivia’s father was a famous, Argentine tango dancer of Spanish descent who divorced her mother when she was two.

Anyway, she was beautiful. She is my favorite Juliet.

And she was also Mother Theresa.

She seems to be so ashamed of being part Argentine. How sad. I’ve only seen her in romeo and juliet..

On her website, when it talks about people thinking she’s so pretty, it says she “Owes it to being the rare “Argentine-English” that she is, she didn’t spend much time in Argentina, and wasn’t close to her father. That’s probably why she doesn’t mention it much. Her father left her and her mother, then they moved to England.

That’s not what I consider being “ashamed”

I agree with BalletAddicted. She has never seemed ashamed of her spanish blood.

a hundrer years later… most latino artists dont even speak spanish but they show off to be proud of their heritage, whilst if you check her instagram, even when speaking about latino countries, never speaks in spanish and never mentions her “latino” roots. She even changed her surname to not be considered as one.
