The New Sister in Town

Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen are not by any means new on the scene, unless it’s 1986 and were talking baby actors. Their little sister, however, is rather new. True Olsen twin fans remember the pairs’ sibling cameos in their straight to video released movies back in the 90’s. Well, these days the little Olsen sister is making news and is definitely an up and coming star. Elizabeth Olsen, better recognized as Lizzie, is gracing Hollywood – or rather Sundance, as the film Elizabeth is to star in is an independent thriller – with her presence. The twenty-two year old actress had some sweet inspiration from her uber-famous family members, but it seems Elizabeth has made it on her own and in quite an impressive and dramatic way.  The new film she will be starring in is titled, Martha Marcy May Marlene. In the film she is the main character whose back story is briefed by some detailed verbiage, worded best by, “Haunted by painful memories and increasing paranoia, a damaged woman (Elizabeth Olsen) struggles to re-assimilate with her family after fleeing an abusive cult.”

The new found publicity has brought a few more things onto Elizabeth Olsen, including a magazine cover. The over-night celebrity will be featured on newsstands, on the cover of Nylon Magazine this October (2011). The interview that coincides with her gorgeously vintage, yet current cover mostly goes over her start-up in the acting field, and of course some family stuff. The interview begins with the basics and goes into detail from there. As the magazine has not made its way to stands yet, I can only divulge some of their interview. Elizabeth filled Nylon in on her background in theatre, going beyond her cameos in The Adventure’s of Mary-Kate and Ashley. Elizabeth is a graduate of Tisch School of the Arts at New York University, closing the gap on the concern of performing at a Sundance level. “I just always thought that theater was different from being an actor in Hollywood for some reason.  It was like this safe place where people aren’t harassed.  But I was apprehensive because I saw how brutal people can be when other people put themselves out there,” Elizabeth told Nylon, concerning her choice in going into acting. But, it seems Elizabeth has learned a lot from her sisters and is headed in the right direction. Martha Marcy May Marlene will be released December 22nd, 2011 in theaters. And don’t miss the other four films that will be released in 2011-2012 starring Elizabeth Olsen.
