Here Are The Facts You Need To Know About Taylor Olsen’s Life, Career And Family

Taylor Olsen might be an actress in the most basic sense of the word, having earned a couple of credits to her name, however, it is not the most recognizable fact about her. That would be credited to her status as one of the Olsen sisters, one that includes Mary-Kate Olsen, Ashley Olsen as well as Marvel’s Elizabeth Olsen, aka Scarlett Witch.

She might not be as popular as her sisters, but Taylor Olsen also has an exciting life, with a career to go with it. Here are some of the fun and interesting facts you should know.

Her Background

The young actress was born in 1996 to David Olsen and McKenzie Olsen and her full name is Courtney Taylor Olsen. Although she proudly shares the Olsen name with her more famous sisters, their father is the only biological connection between them. Her father, David Olsen, is a renowned real estate developer and mortgage banker.

Taylor’s father married her mother after he got divorced from Jarnette Olsen, mother of the other Olsen sisters. However, despite this history, it is believed that Taylor had a similar upbringing with her half-sisters. Aside from her half-sisters, she also has a younger biological sibling, Jake Olsen.

Through her father, she has a Norwegian ancestry. As for her education and other background information, her preference for life outside the spotlight as left them unknown.

Career and Life as an Olsen Sister

By the time Taylor Olsen was born in 1996, her half-sisters, Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen had already become household names in Hollywood. They had become young stars due to their appearances in shows like Full House and the musical mystery videos, The Adventures of Mary-Kate & Ashley.

With life in the entertainment world turning out to be the family business, Taylor Olsen made her debut appearance onscreen in 2014, in the movie, Malignant Spirits: Sense of Fiction. She followed it up with another appearance in the film, YOLO: The Movie, where she played the character, Ralph.

Taylor’s life onscreen continued into its third year in 2016, when she appeared in the reality TV show, BNow!. She appeared as herself in two episodes, and it has remained her last recorded appearance onscreen to date.

Although fans of the Olsen sisters have their speculations, her exact reasons for stepping away from the entertainment sphere remain unknown. The belief is, having seen the implications of being a prominent media personality through the Olsen twins, she has chosen to pursue a more quiet career.

While on her own, Taylor Olsen might not be one of America’s most recognizable faces, her family boasts of a few personalities who are mostly due to their work in the entertainment industry.

Although they have since retired from acting, her older half-sisters, Ashley and Mary-Kate, remain one of the most popular. They appeared in more than 50 movies and TV shows during their career, including popular titles like Weeds, Two of a Kind, and Full House. Today, they are fashion designers, known for their fashion lines, Mary-Kate and Ashley, The Row, Olsenboye, and more.

Taylor’s other half-sister, Elizabeth Olsen, is still an actress. She is known for her work in the Marvel Cinematic Universe as Scarlett Witch. Other appearances include Wind River, Ingrid Goes West, and Godzilla.

She also has an older half-brother, Trent. Although he tried his hands at acting, like Taylor, he gave it up in pursuit of a less public career. As for her second brother and only biological sibling, Jake, he had a brief career as a model. But like Trent and Taylor, it was short-lived.

However, it isn’t just the Olsen children that have made a splash in the entertainment world. Taylor’s mother, McKenzie Olsen, has equally appeared in a few shows of her own. A former secretary to Taylor’s father, she has appeared in the reality show, BNow! and the TV special, $chmooze or Lo$e.

Due to the preference of several of the Olsen family members to keep their lives private, it is difficult to ascertain the depth of their relationship with each other, mainly when it involves Taylor. However, photo evidence over the years suggests she and the rest of the Olsen family maintain, at the very least, a casual relationship with each other.
