Shoot made Isla long for Summer Bay

Isla Fisher says the night shoots made her long for Summer Bay

Isla Fisher says filming Burke And Hare on location in Edinburgh made her wish she was back in Home And Away.

The actress, who played schoolgirl Shannon Reed in the Aussie soap, said the freezing night shoots on the comedy about bodysnatchers made her long for Summer Bay.

She said: "It's so funny because every one always says to me 'You've come such a long way from Home And Away' and that's one of those few times when you think 'Oh I wish I was back on Home And Away - on the beach, not in this freezing castle.'"

Isla starred in the sun-drenched show between 1994 and 1997, and has gone on to act in several Hollywood films.

Her appearance in Leicester Square was her first red carpet event since giving birth to her second child with husband Sacha Baron Cohen.

Her co-star Andy Serkis claimed the new film shows that Burke and Hare were not simply killers, but were pushed into crime by the doctors who demanded bodies for research at the time.

He said: "It's a satire and you can actually rather intelligently use humour to make the audience question what their motives were and what the greater conspiracy is, which is that they were pawns in the medical industry."

Dwelling on what might have been will just make you bitter. Take a risk. It's better to try and fail than be paralysed by fear.More
