‘Nepotism is a thing and I’m very aware of it. And of course, I’ve always wanted to do it alone,’ she said.

Olsen studied at New York University’s Tisch School of the Art and made her acting debut in Martha Marcy May Marlene in 2011.

Now she returns as Wanda Maximoff, a.k.a. Scarlet Witch, in Marvel’s WandaVision, which airs its seventh of nine episodes on Friday on Disney Plus.

‘I thought it was perfect for television, and a very original idea that made me excited,’ Olsen said.

She made her Marvel Cinematic Universe debut with a brief cameo in 2014’s Captain America: The Winter Soldier, before starring in 2015’s Avengers: Age of Ultron.

In subsequent films, she developed a relationship with Paul Bettany’s Vision, leading to the duo reuniting in WandaVision.

‘He’s very precise, like me,’ Olsen said of her co-star, who returns as Vision in the critically-acclaimed series.

The show explores several tropes throughout television history, with Olsen explaining this show is right in her wheelhouse.

‘I was a very hammy, performative child. So, I do think I got to live out some sort of childhood dream doing the show,’ she added.

When asked about her character, she saw her, ‘as a victim of extreme trauma, who does not understand how to process it.’

‘She has been a human experiment,’ she added of Wanda.
