In Disney+’s highly anticipated National Treasure: Edge of History, Lisette Olivera plays the heroine Jess Valenzuela. Jess, eager for information about her family, decides to go on an amazing quest. Olivera seems pretty amazing in the teaser for the series, and since Nicolas Cage won’t appear in the first season, it’ll be intriguing to see how her role develops on the show. Olivera is a relatively new actress who will make a name for herself on television with this role.
Lisette Olivera has appeared in several small parts.
According to Celebrityageinfo.com, Lisette Olivera was born on April 16, 1999. She grew up in Los Angeles, California, and attended a local high school, according to reports. During her school days, Olivera is said to have developed an interest in acting and modelling. Lisette Olivera received her bachelor’s degree from a renowned institution. Olivera’s first role was in the famous fantasy drama Total Eclipse where she played the character of Belle. Her acting in the series apparently received good feedback from viewers and reviewers for the most part.
She also appeared in Waltz of the Angels, Faint and I Always Said After all short films. In 2021, she played the role of Amy in Sean King O’Grady’s polarizing horror thriller, We Must Do Something. Lisette Olivera will take on the lead role in Disney+’s National Treasure: Edge of History after demonstrating her acting abilities in small/supporting roles in various films and series. Olivera discussed the parallels between her character and Benjamin Gates, played by Nicolas Cage in the two National Treasure movies, in an interview with SYFY WIRE.
“I believe it was a wise strategy to build Jess as a character to just try my own perspective on what it was like thinking about these challenges. I constantly compare Jess to Ben in the sense that they are both very smart people with strong personalities. But she had a different life than Ben with Jess.”
