Having someone famous in the family can create privileges, but also discomfort. And a lot if you have two! That was what happened to Elizabeth Olsen, since her older sisters, the twins Mary-Kate and Ashley, were known to be the most adored girls in film and television during the 90s and early 2000s. And that is what happened to this little actress, that although Already had part of the way paved by knowing the entertainment industry closely and having a known last name, he had to deal with the permanent comparisons. But the 32-year-old artist knew how to build her career based on effort and discipline and today she placed herself among the most sought-after young stars in Hollywood by playing the Scarlet Witch of the Marvel universe.
Change of identity
The backpack of her last name’s fame caused Elizabeth to decide early in her career to change her last name to Chase. Then he returned to the Olsen, and it was not bad. Her associates call her Lizzie.
Fighting Saoirse Ronan
She was the actress who sounded strong to give life to Wanda, but after several castings the name of Olsen was stronger and won the pulse.
Almost gave up the acting career
The fact of having grown up behind the paparazzi spotlight, in 2004 gave little Olsen the feeling of abandoning the project of being an actress. With a super low profile, he went back to the original idea and had an incredible career.
Sorry for your loss
It was the Facebook Watch series that put her in everyone’s eye for her incredible portrayal of a woman who must deal with the death of her husband. The fiction was recognized by critics for the realism of its interpretation and earned him respect within the industry.
The casting that said “NO”
Elizabeth Olsen was about to play a central character in Game of Thrones. She auditioned to be Daenerys Targaryen, but eventually the role was given to Emilia Clarke. Speaking to the Vulture, Olsen said it was the worst audition he ever did in his entire career, when he had to recreate the end of the first season of the Targaryen character. It was the fragment after Daenerys came out of the fire.
The actress you most admire
Both she and her sisters are followers of the work of the actress of The fabulous Baker Boys. Michelle Pfeiffer. In fact, Elizabeth has been compared several times for her physical resemblance to the actress who knew how to play Catwoman in the movies.
The mini spy who was not
Another of the castings in which she was not selected was Mini spies where Antonio Banderas and Carla Cugino acted. This rejection was not viewed with anger by the actress, who now claims that she would have pigeonholed her into the girl actress she did not want to be. Perhaps the early life of her sisters in the industry was decisive in making that decision.
Almost part of Star Wars
Another universe that he wished Elizabeth to be a part of was that of Star Wars. Olsen received the proposal to be King – a role that Daisy Ridley finally played – but if he accepted it, he had to say goodbye to his Marvel Wanda. We already know the answer.
