Elizabeth Olsen pulls on the hood of her jacket as she leaves NBC Studios after appearing on The Today Show on Wednesday morning (October 19).
The 22-year-old actress opened up about her luck with landing the roles of the title characters in her new movie, Martha Marcy May Marlene.
“It was more exciting, because I don’t think you get to seize those opportunities as much being a young, new actress,” Elizabeth shared. “I got very lucky that the director wanted an unknown actress for this part.”
She added about any advice she’s taken from her older sisters Mary-Kate and Ashley: “They lead by example. They have really strong work ethics and have been working their entire lives. Just knowing it’s about the work and following your passions.”
