    The phrase “rising star” was invented for performers like Elizabeth Olsen. The 24-year-old actress (younger sister of fashion moguls Mary-Kate and Ashley) first wowed movie audiences as the haunted Martha in 2011’s critically acclaimed Martha Marcy May Marlene, and will star in three soon-to-be released films, plus Godzilla and a forthcoming star turn as the Scarlet Witch in The Avengers: Age of Ultron. Rather than heading off to Hollywood for good, Olsen, a recent grad of NYU’s Tisch School of the Arts, is currently in previews as Juliet Capulet in Classic Stage Company’s revival of Romeo & Juliet. The in-demand actress recently chatted with Broadway.com about loving Shakespeare, lessons learned from her famous sisters, and more.

    How does it feel to be making your off-Broadway debut in Romeo & Juliet?
    It’s really, really exciting and terrifying [laughs]. For a couple of years, [CSC Artistic Director] Brian Kulick and I have been trying to figure out what to do together. Last March, he proposed a reading of Romeo & Juliet, and I wasn’t that interested until I started to do the work. I feel like I saw Romeo & Juliet for the first time. I always thought of it as the most typical Shakespeare play; every human being on earth, if they know literature, knows Romeo & Juliet. But I realized there’s a reason why, because it’s one of the most beautiful plays every written.

    What do you relate to in the character of Juliet?
    You cannot bend Juliet—she is so determined and headstrong, but not in the negative sense. Anytime she sets her mind on something, she attacks it at full force and I find that fascinating. She’s so smart about everything and she’s such a strong young woman, the only one who’s making active choices. Everyone else is dealing with things, and she’s the one who proposes answers.

    How does it feel to be co-starring with newcomer Julian Cihi rather than an experienced actor like Finn Wittrock, who was originally attached to play Romeo?
    Oh, it’s fine! We’re figuring it all out together, trying to settle on a common dialogue and trust and safety and how we both work. No matter who you’re working with, whether it’s someone’s first job or their 57th, everyone ends up saying, “I don’t know what the hell I’m doing.” If you don’t, what’s the point of collaborating? So, I don’t think it makes too much of a difference. The funny thing about Finn is that he had already done Romeo in an all-male production, so I was like, “Great! He’s gonna show me the ropes.” [Laughs.] But it’s more interesting to come together as a group of people and discover everything for the first time.

    The teaser trailer for Kill Your Darlings has been released. Sadly Lizzie is not featured in it but it’s still worth checking out. It kind of seems like this is only the first 30 seconds of the actual trailer but for now there’s only this!

    Yesterday the Toronto International Film Festival announced the first part of its lineup and Kill Your Darlings is part of it. The movie will have a gala presentation which means that some of the stars will attend and that the movie will have a premiere. Hopefully Lizzie will attend!

    In this dynamic portrait of the early days of the Beat Generation, a young Allen Ginsberg (Daniel Radcliffe) and William S. Burroughs (Ben Foster) become embroiled in the notorious 1944 murder of Burroughs’ childhood friend David Kammerer by the object of his affection, the Rimbaudian Beat muse Lucien Carr.
