This week, Isla posted a video on her Instagram of her opening a delivery of the first copies of her new picture book Mazy the Movie Star!

Mazy is a famous movie star who has her fur fluffed twice a day. While other dogs chase sticks at the park, Mazy chases her acting dreams.

Then one morning Mazy’s agent delivers bad news. Hollywoof has changed and there are no jobs for Mazy anymore.

Can Mazy embrace what it is that makes her special and find her perfect role?

The book will be released in the UK on the 29th September 2022 and in Australia on 5th October 2022,

Isla Fisher and Sophie Turner on the Joys of Mastering New Genres

From Peacock’s “Wolf Like Me” star Isla Fisher to Sophie Turner, star of HBO Max’s upcoming series “The Staircase,” this episode of “UnWrapped” podcast features women who are stepping outside their comfort zone and into new genres.

While you may recognize Fisher for her comedy roles in “Wedding Crashers,” “Confessions of a Shopaholic” or as “The Crier” in “Curb Your Enthusiasm,” audiences are exposed to a new side of her talents in “Wolf Like Me,” a romantic dramedy with a monster twist.

Meanwhile, after a several year hiatus from acting, Turner returns to the screen in the domestic crime drama “The Staircase.” Known for her previous roles in large franchises such as “Game of Thrones” and “X-Men,” Sophie’s role as Margaret Ratliff in “The Staircase” marks her first time not only playing a non-fictional character, but also acting in a true crime series.

Episode highlights Include:

Isla Fisher talks about her traumatic clown school experience

Sophie Turner says being a mother helped her become a better actor

Isla Fisher says when it comes to auditioning for a role, imagine what everyone else is doing and do the opposite to set yourself apart

Sophie Turner says the first thing she asked her Academy Award-winning “The Staircase” co-star Colin Firth was what it was like working with Amanda Bynes in “What a Girl Wants”

Isla Fisher teaches us how she takes on different accents

Sophie Turner says she still doesn’t know who killed Kathleen Peterson, the subject of the HBO Max true-crime series “The Staircase” — but she’s OK with that
