Following family tradition, Olivia commenced
her 'acting career' early, on 6th January 2002, by starring
as the baby Jesus, in a crib scene at St. George's Church, Chichester,
with her Uncle Matthew, who played the part of Joseph, as shown
in the photo above. She and Uncle Matthew also took part in
the Epiphany procession on the same day, at St. George's Church.
Olivia behaved very well during the whole service, except she
found the Bishop's sermon rather tedious, so Nonnie took her
for a walk around the Church. Once the sermon was over, she
participated in the hymns and prayers in her own inimitable
fashion, and fell asleep just before her big moment - the staging
of a Human Crib in the Church Porch!
