Peppy Grove’s WA screen star Olivia DeJonge supporting Sophie Turner through Hollywood’s most vicious split
Perth-raised actor Olivia DeJonge has found herself at the centre of the ugly divorce between Joe Jonas and Sophie Turner, becoming a trusted confidant for one of the heartbroken stars.
The 25-year-old, who was raised in the affluent suburb of Peppermint Grove, has become a shoulder for Sophie Turner to cry on as the Game of Thrones star deals with her split from Jonas.
The pair have been pictured together on several occasions since Turner arrived in New York City following the news that she and Jonas had called time on their four-year marriage.
Most recently, the two women were all smiles when they stepped out together in Tribeca on September 27 to grab drinks from Bubby’s restaurant on Hudson St.
The next day the pair were seen together in Manhattan sporting casual attire and holding water bottles as they recovered from a night of partying.
DeJonge looked relaxed in a pair of loose-fitting pants and a casual long-sleeve shirt as she carried a large tote bag and appeared to be wearing minimal makeup.
DeJonge and Turner starred alongside one another in the 2022 true crime miniseries The Staircase and hit it off with a close friendship.
The actresses played stepsisters— DeJonge as Caitlin Atwater and Turner as Margaret Ratliff—in the eight-part series which is based on the 2004 true crime docuseries of the same name created by Jean-Xavier de Lestrade.
DeJonge was born in Melbourne but at the tender age of five, she moved to Perth with her parents Robyn and Rob, who are investors in the property and IT industries.
She is best known for her roles in ABC’s Hiding and the short-lived Netflix series, The Society.
In 2022, she was cast as Priscilla Presley in Baz Luhrmann’s Elvis biopic, in which Austin Butler played the King of Rock ‘n’ Roll.
Next up, she will star alongside Stranger Things actor David Harbour in The Trashers, which tells the story of the rise and fall of Jimmy Galante, a garbage tycoon from Danbury, Connecticut, and partner of the Genovese crime family.
Last year, DeJonge opened up to The West Australian about going from a teenager planning to study psychology at Melbourne University to appearing on the big screen.
DeJonge has always seen the isolation of Perth as one of its greatest assets.
“It’s so far removed from Hollywood that I think (growing up in Perth allowed me to) really respect the craft, or mean that I’m acting because I love acting, (and not because of) the Hollywood aspect of it,” the actor told STM.
“Hollywood is a machine, and I think that acting is so much about authenticity and originality, which oftentimes, you know, in the machine of a big city can sometimes strip you of that.”
