Olivia Hamnett began her acting career in repertory theatre throughout England before moving onto TV. After moving to Australia, Olivia established an elegant screen presence in the TV series "Rush" as well as playing screen wife to Richard Chamberlain in the film "The Last Wave" and screen mother to young Ricky Schroeder in "The Earthling". A veteran of many TV productions, it was the cult drama "Prisoner", which enabled Olivia to deliver her most memorable performance, as Kate Peterson, a highly intelligent and enigmatic former doctor who is imprisoned for poisoning her partner. Many "Prisoner" fans regard the Kate Peterson storyline as one of the absolute highpoints of the show's seven-year run. Her untimely death has robbed the Australian acting community of one of its finest contributors.
