Isla is featured in a couple of British mags at the moment to promote Definitely, Maybe (which opened here yesterday), including today’s edition of The Times Magazine and the February 12 issue of OK!. I’ve scanned both mags for the site. Both are pretty bad paper quality but I tried my best to get around it. I’ve also added the Times article here.

Fisher has put in many years of hard graft to get where she is, and it hasn’t all been plain sailing. She was five when she saw fellow redhead Ann-Margret in an Elvis film and decided that she’d like to be a redhead in an Elvis movie, too. “When you’re younger, being a redhead is… well, my two brothers teased me no end,” she says. “So I was really excited to see a redhead on film. But also my mum was in amateur dramatics and I would go every night and sit in the wings and watch her on stage, so… I saw practically what it was like – the excitement and exhilaration of being on stage, backstage, watching make-up being put on, the costume changes.”

The Daily Telegraph published a very nice and informative article about Isla today. I think it will appear in tomorrow’s edition of the magazine – so Aussies, keep your eyes peeled for Isla! 😉 Check out full article here.

She has already sold two comedy scripts to major Hollywood studios, has voiced one of the characters for the forthcoming Dr Seuss movie, Horton Hears A Who!, and is due to start filming Confessions Of A Shopaholic (based on Sophie Kinsella’s bestseller), as the lead character, Rebecca Bloomwood.

“Although I’ll be focusing on colouring in books for the next few weeks!

“I don’t want to put the pressure on myself to have to race back to something.”

So, did Fisher ever dream she’d get this far?

“Oh, I always thought I’d be living in Hollywood, in a seven-bedroom house with a massive swimming pool,” she grins.

“It’s just that when I imagined it, I always thought I’d be the maid.”

Isla Fisher will appear on The Today Show on Monday, February 11, and Live with Regis and Kelly on Thursday, February 14, 2008 to promote Definitely, Maybe. If anyone is able to help us obtain video and/or screencaps of her appearances, please do not hesitate to get in touch! Unfortunately I have no way of recording these myself as I am located in the UK.
