Elizabeth Olsen Makes Her Acting Debut at Sundance

After 25 years of the Olsen twins, we’re more than ready to shift our focus. And the Olsen family is more than ready to accommodate anyone looking for a new fix.

Mary Kate and Ashley Olsen’s younger sister Elizabeth Olsen (aka Lizzie) will be stepping into the spotlight at the Sundance Film Festival. She’s starring in two films at the festival this year: Martha Marcy May Marlene and Silent House (some may also recognize Elizabeth’s name as being part of Mary Kate and Ashley’s fashion line, Elizabeth and James).

In Martha Marcy May Marlene, 21-year-old Elizabeth plays a woman emotionally distraught after she escapes from an abusive cult. Silent House is a psychological thriller in which she’s a woman caught in an abandoned summer house.

It’s certainly a change from the twin mischief variety we’re used to from her older sisters. Our Lips Are Sealed? Please.

Okay, Passport to Paris was pretty awesome.

Nevertheless, critics are buzzing about Elizabeth’s Sundance films. The NYU film student says she started auditioning just a year ago.

And if Elizabeth’s films live up the hype, it’s safe to say this is only the beginning.
