Olivia Harrison (born Olivia Trinidad Arias, 18 May 1948) is a British-Mexican author, film producer and widow of musician George Harrison.
Early life 
Adult life 
Harrison worked as a secretary at A&M Records, where she met George Harrison. She married him in a private ceremony in 1978 at the Henley-on-Thames Register Office in England. Harrison attended Ringo Starr and Barbara Bach's wedding in 1981 without her wedding ring, giving rise to the mistaken speculation that her marriage to George was a hoax. In the early 1990s, Harrison founded the Romanian Angel Appeal to provide aid to children living in devastation in Romania.
Harrison produced the memorial Concert For George in 2002 at London's Royal Albert Hall, which featured Eric Clapton, Jeff Lynne, Paul McCartney, Tom Petty, Billy Preston, Ravi Shankar, Ringo Starr, and her son Dhani. Proceeds from the event were given to George's Material World Charitable Foundation. Harrison's video production received the Best Long Form Music Video in 2005. She wrote the introduction for the 2002 book I Me Mine and authored the book Concert for George: A Celebration of the Life of George Harrison in 2006.
She co-produced the Martin Scorsese film George Harrison: Living in the Material World and appeared with Scorsese at Cannes in 2010 and in New York City in the summer of 2011 to promote the documentary. She co-authored the book George Harrison: Living in the Material World, which was released in 2011.
