Who Is Isla Fisher
Scottish-Australian actress Isla Fisher has spent a lifetime developing her talents, cultivating minor celebrity in three major countries. In the US, she is best known on-screen for her playful comedic roles and off-screen for her long-time companionship with British comedian Sacha Baron Cohen.
Australian actress Isla Fisher has a net worth of $15 million dollars, as of 2020.
Fisher was born in Muscat, the capital of the Middle Eastern country Oman. When she was still young, her Scottish parents moved her and her four brothers to Australia where they were raised. Fisher cultivated an interest in acting at a young age and had already starred in Australian commercials when she was just nine years old. The young actress broadened her talents as she began to develop a passion for writing. With the help of her mother, a romance novelist, Fisher published two teen novels by the age of 18.
In 1994, Fisher moved to Sydney to take on a role in the long-running Australian soap opera Home and Away, which also once featured such notable actors as Naomi Watts and Heath Ledger. The gig lasted three years and earned Fisher a nomination for an Australian Logie award for Most Popular Actress.
After she was dropped from the show, Fisher moved to Europe where she studied drama in Paris and pursued a serious acting career in the United Kingdom. While there, she toured with Darren Day in the musical Summer Holiday and the London production Così. In 2001, Fisher was cast in her first onscreen film, a German horror movie called Swimming Pool.
For her breakthrough role in American cinema, Fisher donned a blonde wig to play a part in the live-action movie Scooby-Doo (2002). Though it was her first mainstream film, Fisher only won minor fame. It wasn’t until she was cast in the hit comedy Wedding Crashers in 2005 that Fisher became widely recognizable for her riotous role as a batty, sex-crazed hottie opposite comedy stars Vince Vaughn and Owen Wilson.
With an obvious flair for comedic roles, Fisher made her rounds in American comedies. She appeared in a number of mainstream movies including the absurdly silly Hot Rod in 2007 and the romantic comedy Definitely, Maybe a year later before taking the starring role in Disney’s Confessions of a Shopaholic (2009), based on the bestselling novel. The movie was a bomb in the eyes of critics, but it certainly appealed to the credit card happy younger generations. In March 2011, Fisher accompanied leading lizard, Johnny Depp, in voice acting the animated reptilian western, Rango.
Fisher sought out hilarity even in her personal life. In 2002, she crossed paths with comedic chameleon Sacha Baron Cohen (better known to his fans as Borat, Bruno or Ali G). They started dating and, in 2004, began their long engagement. In order to marry her fiancée, Fisher studied for three years to convert to Judaism, stating “I would do anything—move into any religion—to be united in marriage with him. We have a future together, and religion comes second to love as far as we are concerned.” In March 2010, the couple married in a traditional Jewish ceremony. They have two daughters and keep a private life.
However hilarious her roles may be, Isla Fisher still has a long road ahead of her in the male-dominated world of comedy. But with each career-making step she takes, this comedienne gets closer to tapping into the funny bones of audiences worldwide.
