Olivia Holt first captured everyone's heart when she starred as Kim on Disney XD's Kickin' It and it's a role the actress recently said will always be special to her, since she learned so much about herself.
"Playing the role of Kim on Kickin' It has taught me so much. I loved the character and I loved playing her. She's just so confident and comfortable in her own skin and she's not afraid to hang with the guys. She's a character that I've looked up to for the past few years," Olivia said.
Olivia really respected the fact that Kim was so confident in herself, something anyone who watched the show picked up on too. The character's impressive athletic abilities even pushed Olivia to step outside her comfort zone and try out something she never did before, allowing her to really push herself physically.
"She's also of course so athletic, she's a black belt in Martial Arts. For me, that's something that was very difficult because I had never done Martial Arts a day in my life before the show. We did a two-week boot camp before the show started and we learned all the basic moves. That was a lot of fun and I actually ended up wanting to do Martial Arts, but I ended up taking up parkour."
How cool is that? We know Liv was a gymnast back in the day, and she combined those skills she already had with her newfound appreciation for martial arts and took up parkour, something we have a feeling Kim would be totally proud of.
