Name that actress

Who's the actress that looks like Vera Farmiga but is not her sister Taissa?

Saw an actress in the wild today - she's young-ish (20s or 30s), and looks like she could be a Farmiga sister, but is definitely not. I feel like I've seen her playing "the daughter" in something relatively recently.

She's got long mousey brown hair that I think is usually in a bun or ponytail, and high cheekbones. I would describe her complexion as wan, with some darker circles around her eyes.

Any ideas?

She's always made me think of Maggie Gyllenhaal, but if it is a younger actress, perhaps Elizabeth Olsen?

Except for the younger part: Gillian Anderson.

Not in your target age range, but Kate Beahan looks somewhat like Vera Farmiga, I think.

I got Anne Dudek and Vera Farmiga confused once, but this can be adequately explained by me being terrible.

I'm assuming you would have mentioned the eyebrows, but just in case...Cara Delevingne?

I think Rashida Jones definitely looks like Vera at times.

I would second the Elizabeth Olsen guess, and add Zoe Kazan as a safety.

Lyndsy Fonseca played the daughter in How I Met Your Mother, and I think bears a resemblance.
