“And Sacha was the one who said, ‘You’re crazy if you don’t do comedy; you’re one of the funniest girls I know.’”But Isla has no desire to co-star on screen with Cohen. I feel like working together is the kiss of death.”Isla was born to Scottish parents – now divorced – while in Oman, then moved to Brunei and Egypt as a baby, spent her infancy in Bathgate, West Lothian, and, at six, moved to Perth, Australia, where she was raised.She was appearing in TV commercials at nine and this work led to Home And Away, in which she starred as teen tearaway Shannon Reed for four years until 1997.

She voiced characters in The Simpsons movie and the coming Dr Seuss film Horton Hears A Who!
