Elizabeth Olsen has found her own success as an actress but growing up in the shadows of sisters Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen gave her a few “insecurities.”
Most recognized as Wanda Maximoff in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, Olsen always knew she wanted to act.
“I always knew that it was what I wanted to do, I just had a lot of insecurities about wanting to do it,” she told Harper’s Bazaar UK for their digital cover.
“I’ve always felt that presence [her sisters’ success], which made me work harder, and maybe have a chip on my shoulder to be over-prepared and disciplined, so I could feel like I’m really earning it,” she continued.
It took some time to find her “confidence” but Olsen is “happy” she “eventually found it.”
Rarely talking about home life with Mary-Kate and Ashely, Olsen did share what it was like having the famous older sisters.
“It’s an amazing feeling, being the younger sibling to twins. If I was spoiled by one, the other one wanted to match it. I loved it,” she gushed.
Olsen will once again reprise Wanda for “Doctor Strange 2” and loved working with Benedict Cumberbatch.
“He’s one of the greatest actors around right now and I wanted to see his process. I hope to work with him in a non-Marvel way as well, because I would really like to have another, more heady experience with him,” Olsen said.
“Doctor Strange In The Multiverse Of Madness” is in theatres on May 6.
