People to watch: Elizabeth Olsen


For those in the know there’s a new Olsen sister in town. Elizabeth Olsen, the twenty-one year-old younger sister to media kingpins Ashley and Mary Kate, recently appeared in V Magazine.

Though Elizabeth has featured in a couple of her more famous sisters’ direct-to-video movies, 2011 is sure to be her breakout year, with roles in upcoming films Peace, Love & Misunderstanding where she stars with Jane Fonda and Chace Crawford, as well as The Silent House, a horror film, and indie Martha Marcy May Marlene. In addition to recent professional moves, Elizabeth attends NYU, where she studies acting, and recently spent a semester abroad at Moscow’s Art Theatre School. With her Olsen-ian face, and a 5’ 7” frame that dwarfs her diminutive sisters, Elizabeth Olsen is surely a young actor on the rise.
