Surprisingly, the actress had made up her mind to quit acting during the early days of her career. She came to that decision after she was rejected for the role in 2001’s film Spy Kids, where young actors Alexa PenaVega and Daryl Sabara portrayed the leading roles.

She told her dad, “I want to stop acting,” who in reply, suggested her to re-think her decision. He said, “Write a list weighing the pros and cons and make your own decision.”

Well, Elizabeth did make her way back into movies, not initially, but eventually in 2011, portraying Sarah in the movie Silent House.

What followed afterward was a series of hit movie roles, including a prominent part in the Marvel Cinematic Universe franchise as Wanda Maximoff / Scarlet Witch.

Her success in the industry is also evident through the awards and accolades she has received over the years. To date, she has won 14 awards and received 38 nominations.
