Early Life and Career

Elizabeth Chase Olsen was the fourth child born to Jamie and Dave Olsen in Sherman Oaks, California on February 16, 1989. Her older sisters were already celebrities, playing Michelle Tanner on the ABC series “Full House.” While she participated in a few professional projects, she spent her childhood mostly in amateur acting ventures such as acting classes and music theater camp. 

She attended Campbell Hall School in Studio City, California and went on to attend New York University’s Tisch School of the Arts.  While there she participated in other acting classes, worked on off-Broadway productions and even spent a semester at the Moscow Art Theatre School in Russia. She graduated from NYU in 2013. 

In 2011, she made a name for herself in the film “Martha Marcy May Marlene,” according to IMDb, for which she received critical acclaim and won multiple awards. Her next film “Silent House” was not as well-received, although her performance was once again praised. This led to roles in several independent films and a steady acting career.

Additional Work

In addition to her work as Wanda, she’s kept busy bolstering her career with other projects. In 2015, she starred as Hank Williams’ wife in the biopic “Saw the Light,” and two years later, starred in the neo-Western “Wild River,” which earned $45 million at the box office.
