Isla recently spoke to awards predictor website Gold Derby about Wolf Like Me, seemingly as part of their Emmy prediction series! She spoke about familiar topics related to the series, and the advantages of being an Aussie in Hollywood. It’s a good interview, and it’s great to see her talked about in the Emmy race (well deserved)!

Isla Fisher (‘Wolf Like Me’): Letting your guard down allows you to ‘experience the joy of being seen and loved’

“I think there is just this something in all of us that is quite rightly terrified to fall in love, because you really truly give your heart to somebody,” declares Isla Fisher about theme at the core of romantic comedy “Wolf Like Me,” in which she stars as Mary, a reclusive advice columnist who encounters grieving widower Gary (Josh Gad) in a series of coincidental events. After they begin to form a connection, they learn some dark secrets about each other that changes their lives forever. Watch our exclusive video interview above.

In Peacock’s “Wolf Like Me,” Gary is a single father living in Adelaide, Australia with his 11-year-old daughter Emma (Ariel Donoghue), both still grieving the death of Emma’s mother. Mary on the other hand is an introverted single woman, living alone and dealing with her own emotional baggage. After Gary and Mary are involved in a relatively minor car crash, they continue to cross paths coincidentally, bringing them together against the odds. As they grow closer, Gary discovers that Mary is hiding a dark secret.

The six-part romantic comedy created by Australian actor/writer/director Abe Forsythe is an enchanting fantasy-tinged fable that contemplates two grieving people letting their guard down to ultimately find acceptance, love and happiness. The US/Australian co-production streams exclusively on Peacock in the US, Stan in Australia and Amazon Prime internationally.

Isla appeared on US talk show Late Night with Seth Meyers last night, to promote Wolf Like Me. She looked stunning in a little gold Versace dress – I wish we’d got to see this on a red carpet!

Isla is writing a new children’s picture book series! This one will follow Mazy the dog, who is based on Isla’s own dog:

In a gilded kennel lives a famous movie star named Mazy. While other dogs chase sticks at the park, Mazy chases her acting dreams. But then one morning Mazy’s agent delivers bad news. They are only giving acting jobs to pedigrees now. Can Mazy embrace what it is that makes her special and find her perfect role?

It will be published in the UK on May 12th 2022, and in Australia and New Zealand on May 3rd 2022. Pre-order here (UK) or here (Aus).

Welbeck Flame has acquired three picture books written by actress and comedian Isla Fisher and illustrated by Paula Bowles.

Jane Harris, group publisher for Welbeck Children’s, made the deal for world rights in Fisher’s text with Stephanie Thwaites at Curtis Brown. The first in the series, Mazy the Movie Star, will be published in the UK on 12th May 2022.

The series will follow Mazy, a character inspired by Fisher’s own dog, and is set in “Hollywoof”, a version of Hollywood populated entirely by dogs. While other dogs chase sticks at the park, Mazy chases her acting dreams—until one day her agent delivers bad news. They are only giving acting jobs to pedigree dogs now. Can Mazy embrace what it is that makes her special and find her perfect role?

Fisher said: “I am very excited about Mazy the Movie Star, which is based on our very own glamorous pooch. Mazy desperately wants to be something other than herself, a pedigree, in order to get better acting roles in Hollywoof. Mazy learns, with the help of her furry friends, that she’s perfect just the way she is and stands up for mutts all around the world!”

Harris said the “hilarious” series “illustrates wonderfully the underlying theme so important to young children, to always be themselves. A message not just for children but for us all, told in Isla’s original comedic voice that resonates loud and clear. I am still chuckling!”

Fisher, who is best known for her role in “The Wedding Crashers”, is the author of four children’s books, all published with Piccadilly Press: Marge in Charge (2019), Marge and the Secret Tunnel (2018), Marge and the Great Train Rescue (2017) and Marge and the Pirate Baby (2017).

So for now, here’s Isla enjoying the game:
