Some people have all the luck and Olivia Munn is certainly one of them. Olivia is credited as an actress, comedian, model, television personality and author. Olivia currently stars in the television series The Newsroom, which is now in its second season, and she has spoken about playing the character.
Munn explained, "I wanted my character to look a specific way. I didn’t want her to wear flashy jewellery, personally I find that a bit distracting. I wanted her to wear a fitted suit and not something baggy because I didn’t want her to look like she’s apologising for being a woman. I wanted her to flaunt her sexuality."
She added, "The response I’ve gotten from women who are in many different positions (work-wise) has been very positive; they relate to Sloan and this shows that there are many out there who want to see more strong female characters on TV. I play Sloan like a strong man not because she’s better as a man, but because it’s the opposite of what people expect."
As well as starring Olivia Munn, The Newsroom also stars Jeff Daniels, Emily Mortimer, John Gallagher Jr., Alison Pill, Charlie Weirauch, Adina Porter and Dev Patel. The Newsroom season two airs on Sundays on HBO.
