BIOGRAPHY OF ISLA FISHER
Isla Lang Fisher, known simply as Isla Fisher, was born on February 3, 1976 in Muscat, Oman, from a family of Scottish descent. Parents’ attachment to the homeland is already manifested by the name “Isla”, a reference to the Scottish island of Islay; in fact, once the work of his father, a banker in Oman for the United Nations, is finished, the whole family with the little Isla returns to the hometown of Bathgate, and then moves again outside the Scottish borders, in Perth. Here in Australia, a nine-year-old girl Fisher starts working on the small screen as the face of some commercials for local TV. The debut as an actress will come only a few years later, in 1993, appearing in the TV series Bay City is Paradise Beach. In the meantime he devoted himself to another passion, that of writing, and at the age of eighteen he published two novels for children, “Bewitched” and “Seduced by Fame”. In fact, Fisher has always stated that if she hadn’t become an actress, she would have dedicated herself to her writings full time.
The acting career, however, seems to call her to itself, especially when she is chosen to play the character of Shannon Reed, a bisexual girl with anorexia problems in the soap opera. Home and Away (1994), a role that will keep her busy until 1997 and that gives her the first success of her life, thanks also to the nomination as Most Popular New Talent at the 1995 Logie Awards. After leaving the series, she moves to Paris to specialize at the École Internationale de Théâtre Jacques Lecoq, in Paris, where he studied acting, mimicry and commedia dell’arte. In recent years he has worked in the United Kingdom, in particular for London theater productions or on musical tours around the country. In 2001 Fisher made her film debut with horror The Pool, in which he plays together with James McAvoy one of the students of an elite school in Prague celebrating the end of high school with a pool party. The following year he landed in Hollywood, taking part in the first live-action dedicated to Scoby-Doo (2002) as Mary Jane, Shaggy’s girlfriend, who will be possessed by the demon and try to kill her beloved. After this commercial success, he devoted himself to independent films Dallas 362 (2003) and The Wannabes (2003). He later plays a small part in I Heart Huckbees – The strange coincidences of life (2004) of David O. Russell, managing to stand out next to more well-known stars of the caliber of Jude Law, Dustin Hoffman, Isabelle Huppert is Naomi Watts.
In 2005 she is the female lead along with Rachel McAdams and with Owen Wilson is Vince Vaughn of 2 wedding singles, where is the oppressive Gloria, a character who earned her an MTV Movie Awards win and Teen Choice Award nomination. Now established in the international cinema scene, the actress finds herself again the protagonist of a wedding comedy, Marriage by mistake (2006), where she agrees to marry a stranger, played by Jason Biggs. With the thriller Look into the void (2007) Fisher is entrusted with a very different role from those previously held, namely that of a sensual and seductive woman, characteristics that until now had little developed in the characters she had interpreted. Back to being at the center of a comedy, this time with more sentimental tones, together with Ryan Reynolds in Certainly, perhaps (2008), but in recent years it is I Love Shopping (2009) to give her the success she deserves with a unique starring role, which earned her another Teen Choice Award nomination.
From this moment on, a new period begins for Fisher, more golden and brilliant, crowned by continuous successes. She is one of the bride’s friends along with Kirsten Dunst is Lizzy Caplan in irreverent comedy The Wedding Party (2012) and participates in highly successful films, such as The Great Gatsby (2013) of Baz Luhrmann – for which she receives several nominations for Best Supporting Actress – and the thriller Now You See Me – Crime Wizards (2013). Return to independent cinema with horror Visions (2015) of Kevin Greutert, but already the following year she is again in a Hollywood comedy, for the first time next to her husband Sacha Baron Cohen, in Grimsby – Watch out for that other one (2016). The thriller follows Nocturnal animals (2016) and the action comedy The spies next door (2016), but also returns to his penchant for writing, publishing his third novel, “Marge in Charge”. In 2018 he is on the set of the comedy Pick me up! with Ed Helms, Jeremy Renner, Jake Johnson and many others, where they play a group of friends, now adults, who every year challenge each other to the famous and childish game of “you have it”.
