Australian beauty Isla Fisher has enjoyed a long and successful career in Hollywood, becoming best known for her roles in comedy movies, so it was interesting to see that she was cast in the new drama/thriller Nocturnal Animals. In the movie, her character goes through some very dramatic ordeals, with Isla admitting that it was not the most enjoyable film she has ever had to shoot.
Fisher was a guest on the US breakfast show Today, when she said of the experience, "I can't even watch those scenes back! We shot in the Mojave Desert and it was a night shoot that lasted for a week and a half... You know, normally I end a movie and I miss everybody and I wanna stay forever; this, I was like, 'See ya later!'"
She added, "It was just so emotionally draining to do that kind of material and have it look real. You have to really commit to it and it's a physical element. This movie is really about emotional violence and not physical violence, but my scenes, which are basically fictitious - they're (from) a book that Amy Adams' character is reading - it's still, it's just a lot; it was a lot to take on."
As well as starring Isla Fisher and Amy Adams, the rest of the Nocturnal Animals cast also includes the likes of Michael Shannon, Jake Gyllenhaal, Aaron Taylor-Johnson, and Armie Hammer, among others. Nocturnal Animals has been directed by Tom Ford and is set to open on limited release on November 23, before then opening nationwide on December 9.
