Olsen twins' little sister has budding film career

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.

    I had no idea they had another sister. Where did she come from? Never heard of her until now.

    What a beautiful and elegant looking young lady. She does not have that strange pinched-mouth look of her sisters. I wish her well. Hope she makes it and does not get strange.

    She has a very graceful, classic look, and I am reminded of Audrey Hepburn with the big eyes and long neck.

    Straight, front on is not a good pose for anyone as a portrait, it's for mug shots. Imagine if she had her hair styled, someone to do her makeup very lightly, and a real photographer to pose her, not snap her like a deer in the headlights, or a shoplifter in a mug shot.

    I imagine this is a Norma Jean waiting for someone to make her a Marilyn. Let's hope she has a better ending to her story, though.

    It appears she hasn't been tainted by the negative aspects of celebrity......yet. I hope she does well. I'm interested in seeing how far she goes in her career. It was difficult watching her sisters grow up and become a sense of negative energy. She shines at the moment..... Hope she can keep the light going..... I wish her good luck.

    If you read the article. About 24 years ago they got a little sister.

      Actually, if you read the article, you'd find that the twins didn't get a sister 24 years ago – they were born then. They got the sister 21 years ago. LOL – if you are going to complain about other people not reading first – you should really read first.

    She's pretty but not amazing. To be honest, most of these young white girls in Hollywood look the same. Just skinny, skinny, skinny. Not racist, just pointing something out.

    I know nothing of her acting ability, but in regard to physical beauty, Elizabeth makes her sisters look mediocre.

      I thought the same thing when I saw her pic. Granted, physical beauty is only skin deep, but she does look more down to earth and "normal" than the Olsen twins.

    Elizabeth appears light-years ahead of her sisters in every way, how refreshing.

    Wow! Beautiful and wholesome looking! Maybe she'll be the next big star! She's way more elegant than her twin sisters, who seem to try and look as strange as they can.

    She's gorgeous!! Don't listen to the weirdos who only find trashy women attractive, they have no clue what real beauty looks like.

    Her face is a tad bit long and her eyes are a bit scary. Thats not the kind of face you wanna bump into suddenly lol.

    Is it just me or do all of the Olsen sisters have the same dead eyes? Personally I find her face quite forgetable.

      yeah, she has too much space between her nose and her mouth. Kinda reminds me of Hugh Laurie from House

    She's got that same deer-in-the-headlights look. Hopefully, she's a cut above them..

    She's very pretty and clean looking. Her big sisters should try that.
