Fisher is an Australian actress and author. Born to Scottish parents in Oman, Fisher moved to Australia at age 6 where she began appearing in television commercials; she did not consider it her “career” until she was 11. She had to change schools many times to accommodate her acting schedule, and even went to clown college at 21 (who knew?!). She made her break in Hollywood in 2002 and has been a household name around the world for the last 20+ years, and her gorgeous red hair has evolved during this time, too.
Take a look through the fun photos of Isla’s life:

Fisher went to Clown College. At 21-years-old she attended L’École Internationale de Théâtre Jacques Lecoq in Paris.
Many people might think her big break came in 2005 when she starred in Wedding Crashers, but she actually started in Scooby-Doo in 2002 as a blonde. Yes, she had to dye her natural red hair for this role.
Wedding Crashers is possibly her most famous role, alongside Owen Wilson and Vince Vaughn.
Isla Fisher is married to fellow actor and comedian, Sacha Baron Cohen. The two have been married since 2010 and have 3 children together.
Fisher and actress Amy Adams often get confused with one another. These gorgeous redhead doppelgangers even starred in a movie together once.
Fisher wrote a book! Well, actually she wrote a series of books. The books are:
- Marge in Charge
- Marge and the Pirate Baby
- Marge and the Great Train Rescue
- Marge and the Secret Tunnel
- Marge in Charge and the Missing Orangutan
