One of the brightest and most memorable actresses, Isla Fisher, literally conquered Hollywood with her bright hair and her talent. She was featured in a number of iconic projects, and also gained the love of many fans. How did she break into the ranks of successful actresses and manage to securely gain a foothold on Olympus without getting bogged down in family worries?
The red-haired beauty Isla Fisher leaves no one indifferent. The Anglo-Australian actress creates quite convincing images on the screen that are remembered by the audience. So, for example, it is difficult to imagine Paul Hogan's "Shopaholic", "The Illusion of Deception", "The Great Gatsby" without her.
Isla Fisher was born on February 3, 1976 in the capital of the Sultanate of Oman, Muscat. It was here that her family lived. The girl's parents moved here because of the work of her father, who was an employee of the UN banking structure. And this was not their first move. So, for example, in the biography of the young star there were also migrations - when she was 6 years old, they all moved home again (United Kingdom), and then went to the city of Perth in Western Australia.
The girl's parents had 4 more children besides her - boys, so the future star grew up in a large family, where it was always fun. The actress got her name in honor of the island in Scotland.
Her education began at Swanbourne Elementary School. After her there was the Women's Methodist College. Moreover, as noted by those who knew the family closely then, her acting inclinations and craving for the profession began to form even then. So, for example, young Isla did not refuse to participate in school productions. For example, she starred in the musical "Little Horror Shop". This performance was based on the black comedy of the same name by Roger Corman. The play told about the misadventures of a flower shop worker caring for a plant that feeds on human blood and flesh.
Isla started filming early - at the age of 9 she appeared on Australian television in various commercials. Further more, and she got a role in the youth series Paradise Beach. Moreover, critics believe that this particular project became a good launching pad for the girl. It was here that she was able to hone her skills to the maximum and gave free rein to her creativity.
However, it is important to understand that acting has not become the actress's only hobby. During this period, she was also fond of writing her own books. Mom, a writer, helped her in 1994 to publish the first two novels that were successful with the public. We are talking about such works as "Bewitched" and "Seduced by Glory." As Isla herself notes, if she did not manage to achieve fame and popularity in cinema, she would gladly become a writer.
At 18, she landed a role in the television series Home and Away. Here she held out for three years. The project itself is called one of the longest and most popular on the Green Continent. He was awarded such titles for what issues were raised in him - this is teenage pregnancy, and alcoholism, drug addiction, and suicide, and violence. She even received a television award nomination (a kind of Emmy analogue) for Best Actress.
Then the girl thought that she needed to get a professional education. To do this, she chose the famous Parisian school of mimes by Jacques Lecoq. It was finished by such well-known comedian as Pierre Richard, actor Christoph Marthaler and others. They began to observe her in pantomimes, and the girl also took part in a tour with the musical "Summer Holidays". She was also honored to appear in the London production of Cosi, directed by Australian playwright Louis Nora.
Further more, Actvino's career developed by participating in various projects. In 2003, she took part in the Australian comedy "Imitators", which was received rather coolly by critics. However, this did not affect the box office in any way - the film collected quite a good box office. After that there were several more notable projects, including the first role in Hollywood. Many actors dream of getting to a dream factory.
Quite famous people became partners on the set of the girl at different times. For example, she starred in the London melodrama with Jason Statham and Jessica Biel. In The Great Gatsby, she starred with Leonardo DiCaprio, Tobey Maguire and others.
The artist's finest hour came to her after participating in a number of iconic projects. Among them are "Deception", "Cunning", "Yes, no, probably", "I will marry the first person I meet." Immediately after participating in them, she got a role in the romantic comedy "Shopaholic". She was shot based on the bestseller of the British writer. For this role, she was even awarded a nomination for the Teen Choice Awards.
It was from this moment that some hits began in the artist's biography. In 2010, she accepted an offer to star in Hands and Legs for Love. This tape tells the real story of the suppliers of corpses to the military medical school for the study of anatomy. First, they desecrate the graves, and then move on to murder. Then there was The Bachelors, where she became Katie, a bridesmaid busy with wedding preparations.
A bright role in the biography of Isla Fisher was the role in "Illusion of Deception". Here she reincarnated as a stunt woman who gives out the most interesting and realistic pranks. However, in the continuation of the picture, she did not appear. There are two versions of why. The first is that during the filming of the first, she almost drowned in the scene with the aquarium when her chain accidentally jammed. The second is that she had become pregnant by this time and did not want to endanger her baby.
