In 2010, Oleynik starred in AMC’s Mad Men, playing Cynthia Cosgrove. While it didn’t do as well as other television shows of the time, it still earned her a lot of fame. Though Oleynik doesn’t talk about her personal life, there are reports that she is in a relationship with co-star Olli Haaskivi.
Oleynik was also known for her recurring role on the Italian animated series, Winx Club, where she played Icy. She later appeared in the comedy-drama movie The Baby-Sitters Club. She also had supporting roles in the films Jessabelle and Atlas Shrugged: Part II.

Larisa Oleynik has a net worth of $4 million. While the star hasn’t publicly announced any details about her personal life, she does maintain an active social media presence. There is an official website for her, and she also has Facebook and Twitter accounts.
Despite her long career, Oleynik is still a modest girl. She prefers to shop around rather than live an extravagant lifestyle. She doesn’t have any children, and she doesn’t speak about her past relationships. Rather, she is a quiet person who focuses more on her work than her relationships.
Even after her career went downhill, she showed signs of a rebound in her early 20s, appearing in the films Wish Upon a Christmas and The Healing Powers of Dude. At that time, her fans seemed to be hoping for a more mature Larisa.
