Elizabeth Olsen is bound to make a beautiful star-crossed lover.

The little sis to Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen is set to star in the Classic Stage Company's off-Broadway production of Shakespeare's Romeo and Juliet, which will open the company's 2013-14 season in the fall.

Obviously, the beauty is playing Juliet Capulet. Further details—including who will costar as Romeo—have yet to be announced. 

The 24-year-old star has been climbing the A-list ladder in the movie biz as of late. She's found success and even critical acclaim for her roles in films such as the Academy Award-nominated Martha Marcy May Marlene and the 2011 thriller Silent House.

This is her first foray on to the stage in a leading role, although she's previously been an understudy in two separate productions.

Do you think Ms. Olsen will make a lovely Juliet? Tell us in the comments!
