Biography for Isla Fisher

Isla Lang Fisher (born 3 Feb. 1976 (42 years ago)) is an Australian actress and author. She began acting on Australian TV, on the short lived soap opera Paradise Beach before playing Shannon Reed on Australian drama Home and Away. She has since been known for her comedic roles in Wedding Crashers (2005, 13 years ago), opposite Vince Vaughn and Owen Wilson, Hot Rod (2007, 11 years ago) and Confessions of a Shopaholic (2009, 9 years ago).

Early years

Fisher was born in Muscat, Oman to Scottish parents from Bathgate and Stranraer. They resided in Muscat because of her father's job as a banker for the United Nations. Her name, after the Scottish island of Islay, is pronounced eye-la; she has four brothers. Fisher spent her early years in Bathgate before moving with her family to Perth, Western Australia, when she was six years old. Fisher has said that she had a "great" upbringing in Perth with a "very outdoorsy life". She began appearing in commercials on Australian TV at the age of nine, before going on to win roles in popular children's TV shows Bay City and Paradise Beach. She attended Methodist Ladies' College and appeared in lead roles in school productions.

Career

Early career

At the age of 18, with the help of her mother, she published two teen novels, Bewitched and Seduced by Fame. From 1994 (24 years ago) to 1997 (21 years ago) she played the role of Shannon Reed on the Australian soap opera Home and Away. After leaving the soap, Fisher enrolled at a theatre and arts training school in Paris and went on to appear in pantomime in the United Kingdom. She also toured with Darren Day in the musical Summer Holiday and appeared in the London theatre production, Così.

Breakthrough

In 2002 (16 years ago) she had a part in the movie version of Scooby-Doo as Mary-Jane, Shaggy's love interest (wearing a blonde wig) who is allergic to dogs, and subsequently was taken on by an American agent. A larger role in Wedding Crashers, alongside Vince Vaughn and Owen Wilson, in 2005 (13 years ago) won her the Breakthrough Performance Award at the MTV Movie Awards. While promoting Wedding Crashers, she was officially crowned the 1000th guest on Australian talk show Rove on 2 Aug. 2005 (13 years ago). She entered the set ahead of Owen Wilson, winning the title by two meters. In 2006 (12 years ago), Fisher starred as Becca, a Manhattan party host, in the relationship drama London co-starring Jessica Biel (57 walls), Chris Evans and Jason Statham.

Mainstream success

In 2007 (11 years ago), she appeared in The Lookout, a thriller co-starring Joseph Gordon-Levitt and Matthew Goode, and Hot Rod, opposite Andy Samberg. She was scheduled to appear in The Simpsons (15 walls) (1 walls) Movie, although her appearance was cut from the final version. In 2008 (10 years ago), she starred in Wedding Daze with Jason Biggs, Definitely, Maybe, with Ryan Reynolds, Elizabeth Banks (7 walls), and Abigail Breslin, and had a voice role in Horton Hears a Who! (12 walls) Fisher has also co-written a script entitled Groupies with Amy Poehler, as well as another project entitled The Cookie Queen. She starred in the movie adaption of the book Confessions of a Shopaholic, which opened on Feb. 13, 2009 (9 years ago). In the film, Fisher played a college graduate who works as a financial journalist in New York City to support her shopping addiction.

Fisher has spoken out against the lack of opportunities for comediennes in Hollywood.

Personal life

Fisher lives with her fiancĂ©, English comedian Sacha Baron Cohen, in London and Los Angeles. She met Baron Cohen at a party in Sydney, Australia. Fisher converted to Judaism after three years of study, completing her conversion in early 2007 (11 years ago) and taking on the Hebrew name Ayala (איילה), the Hebrew word for Doe; she has described herself as "quite observant". As of Jun. 2009 (9 years ago), the couple have not set a date for their wedding. On Oct. 19, 2007 (11 years ago), Fisher gave birth to their first child, a daughter named Olive, in Los Angeles.

Fisher has said that her "sensibility is Australian" and that she has a "laid-back attitude to life" that she feels "very Australian." Her mother and siblings live and work in Athens, Greece, while her father lives in Frankfurt, Germany. Fisher is allergic to cats, pollen and butterscotch. While filming Scooby Doo (film), her character was to sneeze while Scooby was around, therefore to make the sneezes believable, the crew would spray pollen up her nostrils and she would sneeze believably on screen. This also caused lots of problems as they had to take frequent breaks and she would sneeze in the wrong takes frequently.
