ISLA FISHER (Myrtle Wilson) will soon be seen in the upcoming thriller from Louis Leterrier, "Now You See Me," alongside Morgan Freeman and Mark Ruffalo, followed by a comedy based on a novel by Elmore Leonard and also starring Jennifer Aniston and Tim Robbins.
She was most recently seen with Kirsten Dunst and Rebel Wilson in the comedy "Bachelorette," and has lent her voice to several films as well, including "Rise of the Guardians"; Gore Verbinski's "Rango," with Johnny Depp; and "Horton Hears a Who!" with Jim Carrey and Steve Carell. Her additional feature acting credits include John Landis's black comedy "Burke and Hare"; the title role in P.J. Hogan's "Confessions of a Shopaholic," based on the best-selling book series by Sophie Kinsella; the romantic comedy "Definitely, Maybe," with Ryan Reynolds; "Hot Rod," with Andy Samberg; "The Lookout," written and directed by Scott Frank and also starring Joseph Gordon-Levitt and Jeff Daniels; Michael Ian Black's "Wedding Daze," with Jason Biggs; David O. Russell's "I Heart Huckabees"; and "Scooby-Doo." She is perhaps most widely recognized for her critically acclaimed performance as Vince Vaughn's off-kilter love interest in the blockbuster comedy "The Wedding Crashers."
On the small screen, Fisher will next be seen in the fourth season of the critically acclaimed TV series "Arrested Development," which premieres on May 26th on Netflix. She previously starred in the scripted/improvisation TV series "Pilot Season," with comedic actors David Cross, Andy Dick and Sarah Silverman.
Born in the Middle Eastern country of Oman, Fisher's family moved to the city of Perth in Western Australia when she was a young girl. At the age of nine, she was already appearing in commercials broadcast on Australian television, and soon became known for her role on the popular soap "Home and Away," which also helped launch the careers of fellow Aussies Guy Pearce, Naomi Watts and Heath Ledger. While working on the series, Fisher also found time to write and release two best-selling teen-themed novels.
