Stevens Point, Wisconsin
Hollywood, California (2009-2013)
Olivia "Liv" Rooney is one of the two main protagonists alongside her twin sister Maddie in the Disney Channel original series, Liv and Maddie. She is 16 years old and the famous identical twin sister of Maddie and she is the oldest of the Rooney children. Liv also has two younger brothers and two parents who work at her school. She is a television star whose show just ended. She returns home from filming her TV series in Hollywood to her family in Wisconsin. When she comes back, she becomes a bit more popular due to attending the same public high school as her siblings, which little to her knowing, is a huge problem for Maddie. The twins seem to be polar opposites. Liv is more of a girly girl, whereas Maddie is more of a tomboy. She seems to be a little full of herself sometimes and doesn't pay a lot of attention to others, but her heart is in the right place. It is shown that she loves Maddie deeply, along with the rest of her family.
She is portrayed by Dove Cameron.
PersonalityLiv is perky, energetic, and is very into fashion. Liv loves acting and singing and is very confident when asked to do either of them. She always puts her family and friends first, and even when she messes up when trying to help them, she always has the best intentions at heart (as seen in Twin-A-Rooney and various other episodes). She is sweet, graceful, often sees the good in everyone, and gives everyone a fair chance, even if they are usually are a bad person (as shown in Steal-A-Rooney). Liv is also very outgoing and loves to talk, particulary about herself. Liv can be a bit self-centered and sometimes has a little too much pride in her talent (as seen in Twin-A-Rooney) but only because she has such a strong love for what she does and she always means well.
Liv loves fashion, music, and dancing. She is also really good at singing.
Physical AppearanceLiv has curly blonde hair, green eyes, and light skin, just like her twin. Liv is often seen Maddie. She dresses nicely with cute tops and skirts.
Strengths and Weaknesses
Strengths include being incredibly kind to her twin sister Maddie and other people as shown in most of the episodes. She is also helpful to people. She is secretly a genius, as revealed in Brain-A-Rooney. She is good at driving because she got her drivers license in Switch-A-Rooney. Liv is a go getter. Liv is a very smart, beautiful, intelligent young lady, never lets anyone bring her down not even her sister or friends.
Her weaknesses are being very stubborn sometimes when it comes to listening to others and takes matters into her own hands even though that the people involved don't want her to. She also isn't very good at pretending to be Maddie as much as she thinks. Liv sometimes goes too overboard with exciting things, so that causes problems.
(Twin Sister, Best Friend)
Liv and Maddie are twin sisters and best friends. Like most siblings, they fight and argue at times, but they always get over it and make up in the end. In 2nd grade, they made an art project together. On the art project, were the words: Sisters by chance. Friends by choice. In Twin-A-Rooney, the twins argued and they both thought that they would've been better off if Liv had stayed in Hollywood. Connecting to this argument, Maddie explained to Liv about how she has a crush on Diggie and wanted him to go to the dance with her, but told Liv not to do anything to help her, Liv ignored her. She wanted to help Maddie out, so she pretended to be her and asked Diggie out for her. Maddie got very angry with Liv but luckily for them, the art project they made together made them remember why they were best friends. These two will do anything to make things right for each other. Whether it's the right thing to do, or the wrong. They may be very different, but they always put their differences aside and help each other out. (See: Liv and Maddie (relationship))
Liv seems to be quite close to Joey. He sometimes helps Liv out, for example, in school when their parents walked past them, he warned Liv about their public displays of affection. Like all siblings they like to tease each other, in Twin-A-Rooney Joey let slip about Liv pretending to be Maddie during the family meeting after Liv thought that she got away with it. (See Liv and Joey (relationship) for more information).
Liv cares about her mother but she thinks she is no actress, she also helps her as shown in Sleep-A-Rooney.
Liv and her father Pete Rooney do not interact much but Liv missed him when she was in Hollywood and hugged him when she arrived. They don't have a lot in common, since Liv is a girly-girl actress and Pete is a sports coach, but they still love each other very much.
When Diggie and Liv first meet, she gets very confused by the way he talks. He explained how he was training to be a sports announcer, so that Liv would understand. Afterwards, Liv gets Diggie to announce how he would introduce her. When he did, she smiled and glanced at Maddie, saying "Um, approved." Diggie also helped Liv plan Maddie's birthday party.
When Ocean was first set up to be Liv's friend by Maddie, Liv was pretty upset. After forgiving Maddie, Liv learned that her and Ocean have a lot in common and the two became good friends.
You stole my face!
Mom, Mom, Mom, Mom, I got this! *Squeals*
Maddie, I... Pretended to be you and asked Diggie to the dance and he said he doesn't like you in that way. Hahaha, feels so good to get it off my chest, who's next?
Seriously have you ever heard such a clear cry for help?
Oh, I don't sleep in bags.
Ooh, fabosh! We are now officially ready for step two.
I'm sorry my plan kinda backfired and blew up in our faces today.
Sure, Um, do I require a helmet?
(confessional)Huh, so I missed out on getting to know Parker and I think I might have missed a funeral. Ahaha, I thought Great-Gran was still with us. Oops.
OK, I know we weren't all fans of Duck Duck Dinosaur but there is something waiting for you outside that is going to blow your ten year old minds!
A truth bomb just blew up in my face.
Ocean, don't repeat that. Other people don't get you in a way that I barely do.
My boyfriend's coming to town!
Well, the good people at Flip Kick magazine think differently.
I spent two hours in a ditch, picking anything people threw in their cars. Cigarette butts, potato chip bags and most humiliating of all: Season One DVD of Sing It Loud!
Turns out beautify Wisconsin is not going door to door giving makeovers.
The fate of my plan rests on someone named Diggie.
Oh, there was no party. I totally played you. Don't feel bad though, I am a day older.
Mandy says, your muffler is A okay!
Hold your rah-rahs. Only one of us passed. Total bummer rang.
No, I'm the one who passed! License to surprise!
I hate driving!
I'm staging a live-in!
Finally the birth of 'Miggie'!
Ooh! A package! Wait, what's in it? A new blouse? A new bag? Underwear that doesn't go up to your waist?
Are you being punished?
Everyone's gonna call me the FroyoYOLO girl.
I could also use a little less Joo-ooey.
