Elizabeth Olsen on Rumors She Almost Played Michelle in ‘Fuller House’
If Elizabeth Olsen got the call to play Michelle on Fuller House, someone should tell her.
At the premiere of her new film I Saw the Light, the 27-year-old was asked about the rumor she’d been offered the role formerly occupied by older twin sisters Mary-Kate and Ashley.
We first heard of this gossip from John Stamos — though the site also reports that creator Jeff Franklin originally started the buzz — but Elizabeth has no problem with the chatter.
Surprisingly enough, the Captain America: Civil War star has watched the premiere episode of the Netflix series and called it “great.”
We wonder how the blonde beauty felt about the on-camera joke in the premiere about her older siblings not reprising the role of Michelle — which proved to be one of the oddest moments in the nostalgia-filled opener.
With Season 2 of Fuller House a go, maybe we’ll see some involvement from the Olsens. But, to be honest, we’re not holding our breath.
