Olivia Williams stars as Adelle DeWitt in FOX's "Dollhouse."

Olivia Williams earned a degree in English at Cambridge University before studying drama at the Bristol Old Vic Theatre School for two years. Williams also worked with the Royal Shakespeare Company in both Stratford-upon-Avon and London.

A four-month tour of "Richard III," featuring Sir Ian McKellen, took Williams to the U.S. and brought her to the attention of Kevin Costner who handpicked her for his film "The Postman."

Since making her film debut opposite Costner in 1997, Williams has starred in numerous Hollywood films including "The Sixth Sense" opposite Bruce Willis and "Rushmore" with Bill Murray and Jason Schwartzman.

In 2002, Williams won Best Actress at the British Independent Film Awards for her role in "The Heart of Me," starring alongside Paul Bettany and Helena Bonham-Carter. In 2006, Williams starred in the BBC docu-drama "Krakatoa: The Last Days," which told the true story of one of the most destructive natural disasters in history. Additionally that year, Williams returned to the stage for a starring role in "The Changeling" at the Barbican Theatre in London.

Most recently, Williams starred as writer Jane Austen in the BBC production of "Miss Austen Regrets." Williams has several feature films set for release including "Flashbacks of a Fool" opposite Daniel Craig, "Broken Lines" with Paul Bettany and "An Education" with Emma Thompson and Alfred Molina.

Williams resides in London with her husband and their two daughters.
