Sierra McCormick, who plays Olive Doyle on Disney Channel’s “A.N.T. Farm,” made an exciting visit to Seacrest Studios at the Children’s Hospital of Orange County. She chatted about how her character has grown over the seasons, her acting roles before she snagged “A.N.T. Farm,” and her infamous shrines of famous celebrities.
Sierra’s character Olive has an eidetic (photographic) memory, which means she can remember everything she has ever read, seen or heard.
“I learn quite a bit from playing Olive because of all of the interesting facts she has to memorize,” she said. “It’s more fun to play someone who is not like me.”
James Franco and Adam Levine are just a few of the celebrities that have adorned the walls of her dressing room. The Wall of Franco sported both James and his brother Dave, the Levitt Ledge was home to Joseph Gordon Levitt, and the Levine Shrine was devoted to “The Voice” judge and Maroon 5 singer Adam Levine.
Patients and visitors were so thrilled to meet Sierra as she sat down with them to sign autographs and take pictures. She even spent time with patients at their bedside if they were unable to make it down to the studio. One patient enjoyed her conversation with Sierra so much they went through tons of topics, which spanned from the Tower of Terror at Disneyland to Harry Potter. She even did the Miley face with one of the patients!
Thank you to Sierra for truly making a memorable visit to Children’s Hospital of Orange County and Seacrest Studios. We had so much fun!
