RED LIGHTS

ELIZABETH OLSEN (Sally Owen) is not only a vivacious and engaging young actress, she is also a full-time student at New York University's prestigious Tisch School of the Arts. Recently, Olsen finished filming Kill Your Darlings, opposite Daniel Radcliffe. She next will start filming Therese Raquin, opposite Jessica Lange and Tom Felton. A dark period piece set in 1867 in Paris, the film follows young Therese (Olsen), who is forced by her aunt, Madame Raquin (Lange), into a loveless marriage to her sick, spoiled first cousin. Charlie Stratton, who also wrote the screenplay adaptation, will direct the film. Olsen was recently seen in the thriller Silent House.

Next Olsen will star in Liberal Arts, opposite Josh Radnor, John Magaro, Zac Efron and Richard Jenkins. The film follows a thirty-something guy (Radnor) and a coed (Olsen) who spark a connection due to their mutual love of books and music, though their age difference complicates their fledgling relationship.

Olsen starred in the critically acclaimed Martha Marcy May Marlene, a drama focused on a young woman living with her older sister after escaping a cult. Martha Marcy May Marlene was also selected in the Un Certain Regard as part of the 2011 Cannes Film Festival. For her performance, Olsen has received Gotham Award, Critics Choice and FIND Spirit Award nominations. She received honors from the following critics' associations: Indiana, Ghent, Florida (Breakout), Chicago (Most Promising), Phoenix, Central Ohio and Vancouver. She was also nominated for critics' awards in Detroit (Breakthrough), St. Louis, Chicago, Las Vegas, Houston, IPA, San Diego and Denver.

Olsen is also very familiar with the stage, as she understudied in the Off Broadway play "Dust” and "Impressionism” on Broadway while attending college. Other workshops include "Bottom of the World” by Lucy Thurber (Atlantic Theatre Company), and "The Living Newspaper” (DRD Theatricals). She received training at Atlantic Acting School and Moscow Art Theatre School.

Olsen currently resides in New York.
