America Olivo was a singer and actress best known for appearing regularly on "Chicago PD" (NBC 2014- ) and "Degrassi: The Next Generation" (Epitome Pictures 2001-2015), but she also had a memorable Playboy shoot to her name. Olivo was born on January 5, 1978 to Nello Olivo and Danica D'Hondt, an actress who was once crowned Miss Canada. Olivo grew up in Los Angeles, graduating from high school at age sixteen. She went on to study opera at Juilliard. In 1998, Olivo and three other women of Hispanic descent formed the band Soluna. Their Latin pop/rock sound met with minor success, and their song "For All Time" hit the Billboard Top 40. Soluna disbanded in 2004, and Olivo began pursuing an acting and modeling career. In 2009, Terry Richardson photographed Olivo for the Playboy cover and seven fully nude photos. Olivo began to take on theatrical roles, most notably as the understudy for the female lead in the Broadway musical "Spider-Man: Turn Off the Dark" (2010-2014). Olivo also appeared in small TV roles on "How I Met Your Mother" (CBS 2005-2014), "House M.D." (Fox 2004-2012), and "General Hospital" (ABC 1963- ). She also made small appearances in "Iron Man" (2008) and "Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen" (2009). In July of 2009, Olivo married actor Christian Campbell, whom she had co-starred with in the small horror flick "Neighbor" (2009). The couple gave birth to a daughter, Indira Rose Campbell, in 2012, but the baby tragically died three days later of Edwards syndrome. She has since become the spokesperson for Baby Quest, a foundation that raises money for those who cannot afford infertility treatments. In 2013, Olivo landed the recurring role of former model and strict mother Mrs. Rivas on "Degrassi: The Next Generation". She also appeared in the "Chicago Fire" (NBC 2012-) spinoff "Chicago PD" as the wife of Detective Antonio Dawson (Jon Seda).
