“Playing good girls in the ’30s was difficult when the fad was to play bad girls,” she once said. “Actually, I think playing bad girls is a bore; I have always had more luck with good girl roles because they require more from an actress.” RIP #OliviaDeHavilland pic.twitter.com/G0OfiL78qU

Olivia de Havilland grabbed eyeballs back in the 1930s when she starred with Errol Flynn in a series of films. Olivia then went on to be the evergreen Melanie Hamilton in the 1939 classic Hollywood film Gone With The Wind. The film has eight Oscars to its credit including the Best Picture.
In her much spoken about acting career, the actor won two Academy Awards (Oscars) and was nominated five times in total. Olivia was also known for being a powerful voice who even challenged the studio system in Hollywood. Her feud with sister Joan Fontaine was also a big and famous episode of her life.
Our deepest condolences to the family, and may Olivia de Havilland’s soul rest in peace.
