To get her showbiz start, Elizabeth Olsen had to look no farther then the bedroom next to hers as the younger sister of the Olsen Twins. Mary-Kate and Ashley often cast her in their tween hits like “How The West Was Fun” and “Our First Video.” She attended New York University’s Tisch School of the Arts, spent a semester studying in Russia at the Moscow Art Theatre School, and met her agent when she was an understudy on a Broadway play. By the time she graduated in 2011, she’d already appeared in several films including “Silent House” and “Peace, Love & Misunderstanding.” But she really broke out from the shadow of her super successful siblings when she played a cult member in “Martha Marcy May Marlene.” She continues to balance indie fare like “Kill Your Darlings” and “Liberal Arts” with popcorn tentpoles like “Godzilla” and the 2015 “Avengers” film in which she’ll play the Scarlet Witch. She met her fiancée Boyd Holbrook in 2012 on the set of “Very Good Girls.”
