"Acting has always been both a passion and a need for me
– it has always haunted me."

From his earliest days Olivier Zwicky has amused and entertained, sometimes to tears, the people around him. But it is in 1998 that things seriously begin to happen, following a meeting with St้phane Leuba, an inspired director; he takes Olivier under his wing and will — for 3 whole years — train him and contribute to form him as an actor.

It is in 2003 that he has his first experiences in front of the camera, and immediately something’s happening : "I know that this is I’m made for !" In 2004 he shoots 2 shorts in Los Angeles, then co-produces — end of 2004 beginning of 2005 – a feature film (“Peur Bleue”), shot and distributed in Switzerland in 2005.

In 2006 he plays in 2 short movies: “Perfect Love Banishes Fear” — which he also co-writes and produces, as with “Peur Bleue” — and “L’Acteur” (presented at the Short Film Corner in Cannes in 2007). In the same year he writes and directs his first creation for the stage.

And it is during the autumn of 2006 that Olivier takes the decision to join Acting International, in order to really get involved in the movie business. There he has the pleasure to train, develop and hone his acting with different people — Clara McBride, Alexandre Louschik, Eric Bartonio & Yves Collignon among others, who are involved in both Theatre and Cinema. Four enthusiasts with whom he discovered many valuable ideas.

He shoots 5 short movies in 2007, including one in which he plays in English (without any noticeable accent, the translator would add). An unforgettable experience among quite a few others, and which allows him to gain confidence concerning his acting in English. Not forgetting two new creations for the stage, written and directed in 2007.

We come to 2008, the year in which he shoots 8 short movies, while participating at the same time, after the end of his course at “Acting”, in a workshop focusing on acting in front of the camera. He also writes his fourth creation for the stage this same year.

And 2009 starts in the most wonderful manner, as Olivier conducts a theater class in a school of further study from the beginning of January. In front of the camera he shoots 9 short movies, and on the stage create a small theatrical company with which he starts to tour towards the end of the year. Still in 2009 he participates in a choral class, as well as he conducts several acting workshops in & around Paris. All that without forgetting to write.

In 2010 he pursues his investment both in the company and in the theater class which he continues to conduct. Olivier also participates - once again - in a choral class, as well as in a dance class. All this with several writing projects in progress and for sure, in the future, many slices of life waiting for him to take them on.

"Thus, I seize all opportunities to act, visit,
be inspired and exist in both the Theatre and the Cinema fields,
where so many stories are happening,
always yearning after new characters,
new ways of life !"
