Celebrity Birthday of the Day – February 16

Who knew that the most talentend of the Olsen sister would be the younger sister of Mary-Kate and Ashley: Elizabeth Olsen. But already, Elizabeth’s career has been far more prestigious than that of her sisters. She began acting at a young age and appeared in several Mary-Kate and Ashley videos and movies, including How the West Was Fun and The Adventures of Mary-Kate and Ashley. However, Elizabeth decided not to pursue acting professionally until her sophomore year of high school, when she became the understudy for the Broadway play Impressionism. She began auditioning for films shortly thereafter, and starred in the festival hit Martha Marcy May Marlene. The movie proved to be Olsen’s breakout role, and since then she has starred in the films Silent House, Pace, Love & Misunderstanding, Red Lights, Liberal Arts, Kill Your Darlings, and Very Good Girls. She is set to play a prominent role in Spike Lee’s remake of Oldboy, and has a Godzilla film slated for 2014. Not bad, considering today she turns 24!
