Elizabeth Olsen denies rumors that she was asked to play the role of Michelle Tanner on Fuller House
Elizabeth Olsen was quick to deny all rumors that she was asked to play the role of Michelle Tanner for the Netflix series, Fuller House.
Elizabeth Olsen has denied all rumors that she was asked to play the character of Michelle Tanner on the Netflix series, 'Fuller House'. Olsen went to say that she has not even seen one episode of the show 'Fuller House'.
Olsen spoke to Everything Iconic with Danny Pellegrino podcast, where she discussed 'The Avengers', her favorite movies, and rumors that she was approached to play the role of Michelle Tanner on the Netflix series, 'Fuller House' just as her older sisters, Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen had on the original series, 'Full House'.
These rumors were fueled by none other than Uncle Jesse who is played by John Stamos on both the series. As reported by ET Online, Stamos said, "We actually went to…I don’t think this has been talked about. I didn’t do it, I think [executive producer] Jeff Franklin did. I said, Call the sister. Ask her."
"We talked to her agent and her agent was like, ‘Come on, she’s not going to do that.’ But we did call her agent," he continued. However, Olsen flatly denied that any such thing ever even happened. "That was weird... Leave me out of this!" she said, laughing. "This has nothing to do with me. What is wrong with people?"
According to PEOPLE, Elizabeth said, "I was doing press, and I was like, I don’t know what anyone’s talking about. Stop talking to me about this. I’ve heard it’s a hit. … It’s very successful."
Elizabeth also spoke about how it was to grow up with her famous sisters. "It was just normal. It was never weird. They’re brilliant and I love them. If I didn’t feel that way maybe it would be annoying [to answer questions about them], but it’s really not that annoying."
Mary-Kate and Ashley are the only regulars from the original show, 'Full House', who have not returned to the Netflix remake, 'Fuller House'.
