LONDON - Elizabeth Olsen, the younger sister of twins Mary-Kate and Ashley, will put education on hold to film the forthcoming thriller ‘Red Lights’.
The 21-year-old sibling, who debuted in ‘Martha Marcy May Marlene’, is refusing to sacrifice university for her burgeoning film career, reports the Daily Express.
Olsen, who is studying psychology at the New York University, will take a break from her school to shoot Rodrigo Cortes’ upcoming thriller with Robert De Niro, Sigourney Weaver and Cillian Murphy, but she is adamant her classes will always come first.
“Robert plays a world renowned psychic and Sigourney is a psychology professor, and I play her student. Cillian Murphy is my love interest, though that’s not a huge part of the story,” she told the Hollywood Reporter.
“I’m so lucky that school is always there for me when I take these little breaks. But my education is always a priority,” she added. (ANI)
