She left before graduating from high school to be in Blackout.

When Cooke was young her parents divorced and she and her younger sister moved in with her mother. Cooke attended Royton and Crompton Academy and studied acting at Oldham Sixth Form College.

Soon after, Cooke landed her first and only leading role in Prom: The Musical, a remake of Cinderella, at the Oldham Theater Workshop. This was also her last leading role.
Cooke got her first local talent agent in Manchester when she was 14 years old. The agent put her in a few commercials. In 2012, she was a student who was taken in the “Autumn Term” tour video for Harry Styles’ One Direction. Cooke did a split during her audition for this small part, which made the producers laugh.  Cooke wanted to apply to the Royal Academy of Dramatic Art but her agent told her not to go to drama school because she already had acting jobs (RADA). She made the final round of auditions, but didn’t get the job.
After Cooke attended the Oldham Theater Workshop, the casting director worked hard alongside her agency, Beverley Keogh, to bring her roles to television. Cooke was the main character in two BBC mini-series in 2012. In Blackout she was the daughter of Christopher Eccleston’s character, and in The Secret of Crickley Hall she was a young teacher in an orphanage in the 1940s. Cooke said that she was more comfortable on television than on stage because she was embarrassed by the over-the-top gestures that stage acting sometimes requires. Although she had never acted before, Cooke stood out among European actresses during the rigorous casting process for The Quiet Ones, which opened in April 2014, two years after filming.
After The Quiet Ones came out in 2012, Cooke got an agent in Los Angeles. She sent an audition tape for the role of Emma Decody after reading about the character in A&E’s modern day prequel to Psycho called Bates Motel. After three weeks, Cooke landed the role of Emma, which was her first role in the United States. She was initially disappointed when the producers made Emma a Mancunier, thinking it would be a fail-safe way to correct her accent. But Cooke has since been mistaken for an American with the help of fellow English actor Freddie Highmore, who has previously worked with an American accent. Cooke also did some short videos for Emma’s blog, which is made up.
The Signal, Cooke’s second full-length film, starring Brenton Thwaites and Laurence Fishburne, screened at the 2014 Sundance Film Festival.
Cooke played Haley Peterson, an American MIT student who transfers to Caltech. She, her boyfriend and her best friend are lured to the desert by a hacker where strange things are happening. In October 2014, Cooke starred in the horror film Ouija, based on the Hasbro board game. Cooke took on a big job playing the main character Laine Morris. He was in almost every scene. The story was about a group of friends who use a Ouija board to talk to a deceased friend, but end up awakening a dark spirit. Although critics disliked Ouija, it did well at the box office, grossing approximately $102.5 million worldwide.
The next film Cooke was in was Me and Earl and the Dying Girl, a comedy. Cooke cut off her hair to play the main character, who suffers from leukemia and is going through a coming-of-age story written and filmed by Jesse Andrews. The film premiered at the Sundance Film Festival, where it won both the Grand Jury Award and the Audience Award. Also in 2015, Cooke voiced the Loch Ness Monster in an episode of Ax Cop written by her Me and Earl and the Dying Girl co-star Nick Offerman.
Cooke played the title role in the independent drama Katie Says Goodbye, which also starred Jim Belushi, Mireille Enos, Christopher Abbott and Mary Steenburgen. The film is about Katie, a 17-year-old waitress who turns to prostitution in San Francisco to escape poverty and start a new life. The next film she acted in was a goth crime thriller called Dan Leno and the Limehouse Golem, starring Bill Nighy and Douglas Booth. Both films premiered at the Toronto International Film Festival in 2016. Cooke then starred with Anya Taylor-Joy and Anton Yelchin in the 2017 Sundance Film Festival premiere of the thriller film Thoroughbreds.
Cooke played Art3mis in Ready Player One, which came out in March 2018 and was directed by Steven Spielberg. She will also star in Life Itself, a relationship drama co-starring Oscar Isaac, Olivia Wilde and Samuel L. Jackson.
In the 2018 ITV production of Vanity Fair, Olivia Cooke played the lead role of Becky Sharp.
