Mary Kate and Ashley Olsen have been around for about 20 years or so now, making it big as child television stars but they have now had to give way to their sister. 22 year old Elizabeth Olsen has been impressing in the past couple of years with her big screen performances and Elizabeth has done it again, with her performance in Martha Marcy May Marlene, a role that she thoroughly enjoyed.
Olsen explained, "I felt like I knew her well, if that makes sense. I really connected quickly to her for some reason. I have no experience of anything that goes on in this movie but I had a lot of empathy for her and I really loved the fact that she wasn't just a victim. Or I believe that she shouldn't be a victim, I'm sure there is a way to play her as a victim but I didn't want to."
She added, "It's interesting to watch myself with an audience, I'm trying hard to learn from it. That's my goal right now: to figure out how I can learn from it and figure out how much of what I think I'm doing is actually being captured. I'm treating it as a learning experience right now, I might change my mind in six months, but right now I try and learn from that." You can see Elizabeth Olsen in Martha Marcy May Marlene when it is released on February 3 in the UK.
