Actress Named After Isle of Islay

Have you ever heard of Isla Fisher? I must admit I hadn't. But ever since I wrote the entry about Islay's And Jura's Claim To Rock Fame I've been looking out for celebrity connections to Islay. Yesterday I found one, various sources quoting Isla Fisher as saying:

I'm actually named after the island of Islay, where they make whisky - my dad loves whisky.

So there we have one. While I don't know if Isla Fisher has ever been to Islay, the place she's named after, there's a least a connection between Isla and Islay. Oh, if you want to know what she's famous for, Isla Fisher is an actress. And finally, no news yet if her baby with Sacha Baron Cohen (also known as Borat) will be called Jura.
