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.”
