Indie breakout star, Elizabeth Olsen, seems to be leaving the small budget films behind, with her upcoming roles in Godzilla (due out this spring), and The Avengers: Age of Ultron which will hit the screens in 2015. The beautiful younger sister to twins, Ashley and Mary-Kate Olsen, had her first real break on the big screen in Martha Marcy May Marlene back in 2011. In a recent interview with Flaunt, she describes the level of secrecy regarding her role in the Avengers film. She will be playing the role of ‘Scarlet Witch’ in the much anticipated blockbuster.
Olsen remains understandably tight-lipped on the subject of the new Avengers even as I probe; the threat of peering studio men locking down all evidence isn’t so fantastical: “Any time they give us a call sheet or any time there’s a new draft, they have to shred our old papers.” Surely that’s been peculiar, working on something so closely protected, yet right out there so squarely for all (the internet) to see? “I don’t think I’m allowed to say anything! And I’m too terrified.”
“I really just feel like I’m doing something that’s top secret and somehow has a lot more importance than anything else I’ve been around, so that alone is hilarious. I want to take a photo and send to my friends, not that I want to tweet or Instagram it, just for personal reasons—and I feel like I’m going to get in trouble if I take a photo on set!”
Olsen continued about her newfound fame:
“I’ve been feeling more empowered recently,” she says, “that you’re in control of something, and to really take that seriously, even though someone else is ultimately in control of what the thing’s going to end up looking like.”
She’s a beautiful girl and clearly very talented. I think she’s got a great career ahead of her.
