Isla Fisher: From Home and Away to Hollywood Blockbusters

Uncover the career of Isla Fisher, from her start on Australian TV to Hollywood success in films like Wedding Crashers and The Great Gatsby.

Get to Know Isla Fisher

Isla Fisher, the Aussie actress with a knack for comedy, first made waves on Australian television as Shannon Reed in Home and Away. She was so good, in fact, that she earned two Logie Award nominations.

But Isla had bigger fish to fry, and soon made her way to Hollywood. She landed her first big role in the live-action adaptation of Scooby-Doo, and from there, she took on a variety of roles in films like Wedding Crashers, Hot Rod, The Great Gatsby, Bachelorette, Horton Hears a Who!, and Rise of the Guardians.

Even motherhood couldn’t slow Isla down. Just four months after giving birth to her daughter, Olive, she was back on set filming Confessions of a Shopaholic. And in 2013, while filming a scene for Now You See Me, Isla took her role as a stage magician and escape artist a little too seriously and nearly drowned in a tank full of piranha fish.

But acting isn’t Isla’s only talent. At the age of 18, she was inspired by her mother to become an author. She wrote Bewitched, Seduced by Fame, and a series of children’s books called Marge – a rule-breaking babysitter!

And let’s not forget the fact that Isla is constantly mistaken for her doppelganger, Amy Adams. The two actresses look so alike that it’s hard to tell them apart. To make matters worse, they even starred together in Tom Ford’s psychological thriller Nocturnal Animals.
