Biography

Having been a teen sensation on nighttime soaps in her native Australia, actress Isla Fisher crossed over to U. S. shores determined to become a big screen comedienne and put herself right on track with her scene-stealing turn as a wanton bridesmaid in "Wedding Crashers" (2005). As an unstable nymphomaniac obsessed with Vince Vaughn, Fisher quickly established herself as talented comedic actress worthy of note. From there, she starred alongside Jason Biggs in "Wedding Daze" (2006) and took a turn into darker corners with Scott Frank's gritty crime thriller "The Lookout" (2007). Fisher's charming turn opposite Ryan Reynolds in the surprise low-budget romantic comedy hit "Definitely, Maybe" (2008) led to her headlining role in the chick-lit based "Confessions of a Shopaholic" (2009), where her energy, sass and laser quick comic timing confirmed what everyone saw in "Wedding Crashers." Meanwhile, she entered into a high-profile romance with Borat star Sacha Baron Cohen whom she married in 2010 following a conversion to Judaism. Though she decried the dearth of roles for comediennes, Fisher was nonetheless a hot commodity whose feisty performances heralded the arrival of a fresh new talent.
