Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen may have said bye-bye to the big screen, but their baby sister is just getting started.
Twenty-one-year-old Elizabeth Olsen has landed a starring role opposite English hunk Hugh Dancy in the upcoming indie drama "Martha Marcy May Marlene." She'll play a young woman who goes to live with her big sister and her husband (Dancy) after escaping a cult, according to The Hollywood Reporter.
While the 24-year-old former "Full House" stars continue to focus on their careers as successful clothing designers, Elizabeth - whose earliest acting gig was the 1994 Olsen twins TV flick "How the West Was Fun" - has been busy racking up movie roles.
Besides "Martha Marcy May Marlene," she recently filmed the comedy "Peace, Love & Misunderstanding" alongside an impressive cast that includes Jane Fonda, Catherine Keener, Jeffrey Dean Morgan and Chace Crawford.
