Olsen made her acting debut in the 1994 TV movie How the West Was Fun and the 1999 direct-to-video series The Adventures of Mary-Kate & Ashley when she was just four years old.
When she was younger, she studied acting and attended a musical theater camp. The media attention given to Mary-Kate’s eating disorder in 2004 nearly caused Olsen to abandon her acting career.
Campbell Hall School, located in Studio City, California, is where she studied. Olsen attended the Atlantic Theater Company and the Moscow Art Theatre School during her stay at New York University’s (NYU) Tisch School of the Arts.
After gaining experience as an understudy in Broadway’s 2009 production of Impressionism and Off-Broadway’s 2008 production of Dust, she was able to attract the attention of an agency. Olsen graduated from New York University in January of 2013.
Elizabeth Olsen Net Worth
As an American actress, Elizabeth Olsen has amassed a net worth of $11 million. Elizabeth has evolved as a skilled and accomplished actress in her own right despite spending her formative years in the shadow of her sisters, Mary-Kate and Ashley. Currently, she is most well-known for her portrayal of Scarlet Witch in the MCU.
Elizabeth Olsen’s Salary for Marvel Films: A Look at the Possible Earnings of Scarlet Witch in the MCU
Elizabeth’s “MCU debut” was a brief cameo appearance in the end credits of Captain America: Winter Soldier in 2014. Later, in 2015’s Avengers: Age of Ultron, the actor went all out for Marvel Cinematic Universe fans as the Scarlet Witch, one of the Maximoff twins (Elizabeth’s on-screen brother Pietro Maxoff was played by Aaron Taylor-Johnson).
Starring alongside Benedict Cumberbatch and his ethereal green eyes in Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness in 2022, she has appeared in several other Marvel films since Avengers: Age of Ultron’s release in 2015. These include 2016’s Captain America: Civil War, 2018’s Avengers: Infinity War, 2019’s Avengers: Endgame, and 2022’s Doctor Strange.
It turns out that making massively successful movies pays out *cue Larry David’s voice* pretty, pretty nicely. After earning $2.799 billion (yes, with a b!) at the box office, Avengers: Endgame surpassed even The Dark Knight Rises as the highest-grossing film of all time.
The amount of money Elizabeth has made from each Marvel endeavor is unclear, which is a bummer for us curious fans. However, we do have a rough idea of how much Elizabeth made because we know the salaries of other actors in the MCU.
Scarlett Johansson, Chris Evans, and Chris Hemsworth each reportedly made $15–20 million for their roles in Avengers: Endgame. Elizabeth’s involvement in the film is less significant than theirs, but if she was paid fairly, she still made a tidy sum.
Elizabeth Olsen’s Successful Film Career Beyond the MCU
In addition to her work in the MCU, Olsen has also appeared in other films, including the 2015 biography Saw the Light, in which she portrays Williams’ wife. She then landed a starring part in the critically acclaimed 2017 neo-Western Wind River.
With $45 million in ticket sales, the picture was also a financial triumph. At the year’s end, Olsen starred in the critically acclaimed film Ingrid Goes West.
