Elizabeth Olsen has established a reputation as one of the most talented actresses of Hollywood. Interestingly, not many know that in 2004, Olsen had almost quit acting but overruled her decision subsequently.
Olsen’s breakthrough performance came in 2011 when she starred in the independent thriller drama ‘Martha Marcy May Marlene’. It turned out to be her biggest hit and top grossing film of her career. Her act of Martha, a girl with delusion and paranoia, became the best role of her career. Martha set stage for Olsen’s future filmography that included several successful films such as ‘Silent House’, ‘Liberal Arts’, ‘Godzilla’, ‘I Saw the Light’ and ‘Wind River’. She even starred in two superhero flicks ‘Avengers: Age of Ultron’ and ‘Captain America: Civil War’.
Olsen’s career however has been a mixed bag with several hits and a few flops. While the film ‘Kill Your Darling’ fared averagely, ‘Very Good Girls’, ‘In Secret’ and ‘Oldboy’ were severely panned by the critics.
