“I always knew that it was what I wanted to do. I just had a lot of insecurities about wanting to do it,” Olsen said. “I’ve always felt that presence, which made me work harder, and maybe have a chip on my shoulder to be over-prepared and disciplined, so I could feel like I’m really earning it.’
But she was scared to use her last name, and at one point considered using her first and middle name as a stage name.
In 2011, she made her film debut in “Martha Marcy May Marlene” and has since starred in “Kill Your Darlings,” “WandaVision” and “Very Good Girls.”
“WandaVision” earned Elizabeth Olsen an Emmy nomination for leading role in the television series last year.
