These days, Elizabeth Olsen is well-known for her role in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Since 2014, she’s played Wanda Maximoff aka Scarlet Witch.
In total, she’s appeared (or voiced Wanda) in six MCU films and her critically acclaimed 2021 miniseries Wandavision.
While Elizabeth has moved on to her first major non-MCU project this year with the HBO Max miniseries Love & Death, there was also a time before Marvel – a time when she was better known as an indie film actor.
But it doesn’t seem Elizabeth has any regrets about joining the MCU. In fact, she recently opened up in an interview about what she tells other actors considering joining the juggernaut film franchise.
Elizabeth’s answer was so honest and direct.
“Just give them one,” she said.
“That way you have more control over — Let’s say, ‘You’re like oh my god, this was the most fun I’ve ever had, and I love this character so much I want to do it again.’ You now have more creative control for the next one.”
Honestly, that’s fantastic advice, not just for actors, but for life in general. Not sure if you should go on that blind date? Just give them one (try). Not sure if you should reach out to an old pal after all these years? Just give them one (friendly text).
