Did You Know?
At the age of 18, with the help of her mother, Isla wrote two teen novels, “Bewitched” and “Seduced by Fame”. Both novels became bestsellers.
Who doesn’t love Isla Fisher? This talented actress gave us a hilariously unhinged performance in Wedding Crashers and hasn’t let us forget about her since. In fact, I’ve come to believe that it’s literally impossible for Fisher not to light up the screen every time she appears on it. Her charisma shines through in all of her roles, whether she’s playing ‘the better half’ in unconventional rom-coms like Wedding Daze and Keeping up with the Joneses, voicing an animated character in Horton Hears a Who, Rango & Rise of the Guardians, or stealing scenes in The Great Gatsby and Now You See Me (side note: Fisher was sorely missed in the sequel). She might not be a leading lady yet, but the day’s coming and until then, I can’t wait to see her in this week’s comedic release Tag alongside a very talented and funny cast.
Best Known For: Scooby-Doo (“Mary Jane”), Wedding Crashers (“Gloria Clearly”), Wedding Daze (“Katie”), Hot Rod (“Denise”), Horton Hears a Who (voice of “Dr. Mary Lou Larue”), Confessions of a Shopaholic (“Rebecca Bloomwood”), The Great Gatsby (“Myrtle Wilson”), Now You See Me(“Henley Reeves”), The Brothers Grimsby (“Jodie Figgis”), Keeping up with the Joneses(“Karen Gaffney”)
