The Lovely Isla Fisher Talks About “Now You See Me” and Her Semi-Hiatus

Uploaded on Thursday 16 May 2013


Isla Fisher was missing in action. The last time I interviewed the petite star was for 2009’s “Confessions of a Shopaholic.” And then she retired for a little bit, enjoying motherhood with spouse Sacha Baron Cohen. But now, we can’t escape her! Especially this summer! First, she nearly stole “The Great Gatsby” from Leonardo DiCaprio (I don’t know about you, but her Myrtle character has far more resonance), and then, she’s the fierce Henley in Summit’s “Now You See Me.”

And on my way to New Orleans to interview the cast of “Now You See Me,” guess what I found as a reading material? American Airlines’ American Way where Isla was the front cover! I can’t escape her indeed!

In this interview, we talked about:

*** Her semi-hiatus
*** What attracted her to doing “Now You See Me”
*** Doing her own stunts
*** The stunt that almost killed her!
*** Did she draw from any of her experience learning mimes at Jacques Lecoq School of Mime, Movement, and Theater in Paris in doing the stage scenes in “Now You See Me?”
*** Being vulnerable in interviews
