  • CAREER

  • Her dream roles include Ophelia in Hamlet, Masha in Chekhov’s Three Sisters, and Mary Tyrone in Eugene O’Neill’s Long Day’s Journey Into Night. Long Day’s Journey may still be a ways away, though; the character of Mary Tyrone is 54 years old.
  • She is comfortable with doing nude scenes as long is it serves the story.
  • In an interview with Ask Men, Elizabeth said that she likes the challenge of auditioning for movie roles. “I really actually enjoy auditioning. I believe that you are only in control of so much. So whatever you are not in control of you can’t worry about. So one of those things is what the director wants to cast, what he wants them to look like, does it work with his idea or not. You just try to be present for this amount of time.”
  • Most actors say they prefer to not watch themselves in the movies they’ve made. Elizabeth Olsen is quite the opposite. “I really actually enjoy auditioning. I believe that you are only in control of so much. So whatever you are not in control of you can’t worry about. So one of those things is what the director wants to cast, what he wants them to look like, does it work with his idea or not. You just try to be present for this amount of time.”
