Isla Lang Fisher (; born 3 February 1976) is an Australian actress and author. Born to Scottish parents in Oman, she moved to Australia at age six. After appearing in television commercials and guest-starring in an episode of Paradise Beach, Fisher took on the regular role of Shannon Reed on the soap opera Home and Away (1994–97), garnering two Logie Awards nominations. She made the transition to Hollywood in the live-action comedy Scooby-Doo (2002), and has since risen to international prominence for her roles in the films Wedding Crashers (2005), Horton Hears a Who! (2008), Confessions of a Shopaholic (2009), Rango (2011), The Great Gatsby (2013), and Now You See Me (2013).

In Visions (2015), an independent horror film, Fisher starred as a pregnant woman who begins to experience supernatural manifestations after moving to a vineyard with her husband. Distributed for a limited release in most international markets, Visions was released for VOD in North America, and in its review for the film, Spanish newspaper Reforma wrote: “Predictable and boring, even Isla Fisher, who is usually pretty good, delivers a very boring perfomance”. 2016 saw Fisher star in two action comedy films —Grimsby and Keeping Up with the Joneses. She collaborated for the first time with husband Sacha Baron Cohen in the British film Grimsby, playing the handler of the best MI6 agent, and in Keeping Up with the Joneses, she starred as one half of a suburban couple who begin to suspect their new neighbors are secret agents. Both films were budgeted at over US$35 million, but only made less than US$30 million at the box office. Based on Austin Wright's novel Tony and Susan, Tom Ford's neo-noir thriller Nocturnal Animals (2016) featured Fisher as the blighted wife of a motorist inside a violent novel written by a recently divorced man. The film was the winner of the Grand Jury Prize at the 73rd Venice International Film Festival and was an arthouse success. Her third book and first children's novel, Marge In Charge, revolving around a mischievous babysitter with rainbow hair who tends to bend the rules, was published in 2016. The book was met with a positive reception; Publishers Weekly noted that “spontaneity and mayhem” reign in the work, while The Daily Express found “the comic tale of [the] anarchic babysitter” to be “perfect for reading aloud”. Fisher subsequently authored three follow-ups: Marge and the Pirate Baby, in 2017, Marge and the Great Train Rescue, also in 2017, and Marge in Charge and the Stolen Treasure, in 2018.
