Elizabeth Olsen was an American actress who was best known for her critically-acclaimed dramatic performance in 2011's "Martha Marcy May Marlene," as well as for playing Wanda Maximoff/Scarlet Witch in a series of films set in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, including 2019's "Avengers: Endgame." Olsen was born into a showbusiness family in Sherman Oaks, California. She was the younger sister of twins Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen, who became household names in the 1990s for their portrayal of the adorable Michelle Tanner on the family series "Full House" (ABC, 1987-1995). Since her older sisters were already in the business, it was only natural that Elizabeth Olsen would want to join them. She began acting professionally at the age of 4, and by the age of 10, Olsen had already appeared in six straight-to-video films starring her famous older sisters. When she was 18, Olsen enrolled in New York University's Tisch School of the Arts to study acting. She would also go on to study at the Moscow Art Theater in Russia, as well as the Atlantic Theater Company in New York. Then in 2011, over 15 years since she had her last credited on-screen performance, Olsen nabbed her breakout role in the drama "Martha Marcy May Marlene." In the film, Olsen played an emotionally scarred young woman who attempts to reconnect with her family after escaping a cult. Her performance earned Olsen widespread critical acclaim, as well as various award nominations for her acting. After her riveting performance in "Martha Marcy May Marlene," the film roles began pouring in. Over the next three years Olsen appeared in "Liberal Arts" (2012), "Kill Your Darlings" (2013), "Oldboy" (2013), and "Godzilla" (2014), thus supercharging her still fledging screen acting career. In 2014 Olsen became a familiar face to the worldwide fanbase of the Marvel Cinematic Universe. After first making an uncredited appearance as Wanda Maximoff in "Captain America: Winter Soldier" (2014), Olsen would go on to play Wanda Maximoff/Scarlet Witch in "Avengers: Age of Ultron" (2015), "Captain America: Civil War" (2016), "Avengers: Infinity War" (2018), and "Avengers: Endgame," thus making her a recognizable face to the MCU's millions of hardcore fans all over the world. In 2017 Olsen also earned plaudits for her roles in the comedy-drama "Ingrid Goes West" and the crime-mystery "Wind River." After appearing in movies almost exclusively for nearly a decade, Olsen began appearing on the TV series "Sorry for Your Loss" (Facebook Watch, 2018- ) in September of 2018. The series, about a young woman played by Olsen who is forced to reassess her life after the unexpected death of her husband, appeared on Facebook's streaming video service Facebook Watch. The second season of "Sorry for Your Loss" premiered in October of 2019, with Olsen reprising her role as the lead.

QUOTES FROM Elizabeth Olsen CHARACTERS

Wanda Maximoff/Scarlet Witch says: I'm sorry...

Vision says: If you do this, they will never stop being afraid of you.

Wanda Maximoff/Scarlet Witch says: I can't control their fear, only my own.

Vision says: If you do this, they will never stop being afraid of you.

Wanda Maximoff/Scarlet Witch says: I can't control their fear, only my own.

Ulysses Klaue says: Is this your first time intimidating someone? I'm afraid that I'm not that afraid.

Scarlet Witch says: Everybody's afraid of something.

Ulysses Klaue says: Cuttlefish. Deep sea fish. The make lights. Disco lights to hypnotize their prey, and then--whoom! I saw a documentary; it was terrifying. So, if you're going to fiddle with my brain, and make me see a giant cuttlefish, then I know you don't do business. And I know you're not in charge. And I only deal with the man in charge.

Ultron says: There is no man in charge. Let's talk business.

Scarlet Witch says: We waited for two days for Mr. Stark to kill us.

Scarlet Witch says: I wanted him to face his fear, to create something we could use against him.

Ultron says: Everyone creates the thing they fear. Men of peace create engines of war. Avengers create invaders. Parents create children, that will supplant them.

Scarlet Witch says: I looked inside your mind and I saw destruction.

The Vision says: Look again.

Ford Brody says: If something happens to me...... If..... If I don't make it.....

Elle Brody says: What does that mean?...... Come on.... You're scaring me!

Zibby says: Don't you think you're romanticizing youth a bit much?

Zibby says: Age is a stupid thing to obsess over

Zibby says: Age is a stupid thing to obsess over.

Martha says: not everything has to be a big deal

Martha says: Not everything has to be a big deal.

Lucy says: Sometimes I think I just should have come home, and made sure you went to college. You had so much potential.

Martha says: I don't need your guidance now and I didn't then. I am a teacher and a leader. You just never let me be that, but now I am, and I know who I am.

Lucy says: A teacher and a leader?What are you talking about?

Lucy says: A teacher and a leader? What are you talking about?

Jude says: The men are doing all the heavy lifting. Seems a little sexist to me. How about you, Zoe?

Zoe says: It's not about equal division of labor. It's about an equitable and efficient allocation of resources.

Zibby says: Because I'm advanced.

Zibby says: What was your major?

Jesse Fisher says: I was English... with a minor in history. Just to make sure I was fully unemployable.

Martha says: It's not your fault, you know. You learnt to measure success by money and possessions.

Martha says: You learned to measure success by money and possessions.

Sophia says: How long's it been since you were out here?

Sarah says: It's been a long time.

Sarah says: "You're a loser!"

Sarah says: You're a loser!

Sarah says: Daddy, what did they do to the house

Sarah says: Daddy, what did they do to the house.

Sarah says: Daddy...what did they do to you?

Sarah says: Who are you, what do you want?

Sarah says: Daddy, what did they do to you?

Sarah says: God I should have never added you.

Martha says: Patrick only has boys.

Martha says: You're going to be a terrible mother!

Martha says: You're going to be a horrible Mother!

Martha says: You're going to be a horrible mother!

Martha says: I know who I am. I am a teacher and a leader you just never let me be that!

Martha says: I know who I am. I am a teacher and a leader, you just never let me be that!
