Versatility runs in the blood of Elizabeth , who nails every role she plays in a film or TV series. Born and brought up in California, she started acting at the age of four. She is often associated with her famous sisters, Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen, but it’s worth noting that through her hard work and talent, she took the Hollywood world by storm, carving out her own successful path.

nitially, Olsen was part of a television series starring her twin sisters. However, she made her official acting debut with a movie titled Martha Marcy May Marlene. It was her first role in a feature film, and naturally, she delivered an outstanding performance, earning praise from the audience and critics. She was also nominated for the Critics Choice Award in the Best Actress category for the film.

Following her 2011 film, Olsen’s notable  also include Silent House, Oldboy, Kill Your Darlings, In Secret, and so on. She got her breakthrough after getting cast as Wanda Maximoff, a.k.a. the Scarlet Witch, in the MCU, effectively making her debut in Avengers: Age of Ultron, and since then, she has continued to win the hearts of viewers over and over again by bringing impeccable witchy vibes to the big screen.

Recently, Olsen appeared in a crime-packed series based on the real-life of Candy Montgomery named Love & Death. She will next be seen in the film His Three Daughters, which premiered at the Toronto International Film Festival in September 2023 and was acquired by Netflix. Apart from her on-screen life, here are some facts about her off-screen life that you probably didn’t know.

On film, she may play one of the world’s most powerful superheroes, but in reality, Olsen isn’t without her fears. The main one is spiders. Like many people, Olsen has arachnophobia, except in her case, it’s not simply a fear of spiders themselves; it’s a fear that they will kill her. Speaking to Elle Magazine, the actress described a time when she was staying in a dorm room at Kenyon College while filming Josh Radnor’s Liberal Arts. In the corner of the room was a nest of spiders, and, on one occasion, she found herself trapped because one of the spiders was “going up and down, up and down, up and down in the doorway.”

Olsen’s aversion to spiders might stem from the films she watched as a child. Because she was the youngest sibling, she was shown movies from a young age that were way too scary for her. By the age of five, she had seen JawsTremors, and, most importantly, Arachnophobia. The 1990 horror-comedy stars Jeff Daniels and John Goodman and revolves around a new species of killer spider invading the U.S. and starting to breed. It’s enough to turn anyone into an arachnophobe. However, one does wonder how Olsen coped around Spider-Man!
