Elizabeth Olsen turns 24 today!
Born in Sherman Oaks, Calif., Elizabeth Chase Olsen began acting at an early age of 4 years old.
She appeared as an extra in some of her twin sisters, Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen's, video series, The Adventures of Mary-Kate and Ashley.
The youngest of the Olsen girls, Elizabeth used to receive acting advice from her older actress sisters.
At the age of 16, she spent a semester in Russian Art Theatre School, which sparked her interest in acting.
Even though she had two sisters who had risen to fame, Olsen only went on a few auditions.
One of her first gigs, Martha Marcy May Marlene, was critically acclaimed in many film festivals. It was the first time Olsen ever performed nudity.
She then starred in other movies, such as Peace, Love, and Misunderstanding, Red Lights, Liberal Arts and Silent House last year, where she was nominated for a Rising Star Award from BAFTA.
Other than having Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen as her sisters, she also has a brother named Trent Olsen, and two younger half-siblings from her father's second marriage.
