Who is Isabel Lucas, you ask? Isabel is a 24 year old Australian actress, best known for her role as Tasha on Aussie soap Home & Away and her role in the new film Transformers: Revenge of The Fallen. Isabel is also known for her campaigning for the Save The Whales organisation and work for various environmental causes.

ISABEL LUCAS is an actress who suffers for her art … up to a point.
The former Home And Away star and Logie winner was in Sydney this week to promote the new Transformers flick in which she stars.
While she’s no Meryl Streep or Cate Blanchett – yet – Lucas, who undertook intense acting classes before she joined the cast of Home And Away, was enthusiastically telling reporters the lengths she had to go to take on her role as a Princeton University student in the sci-fi film.
All those acting classes must have come in handy to meet director Michael Bay’s demands that she be well tanned for her role. Lucas refined her “craft” in a Hollywood solarium, though she said the “claustrophobia” drove her mad so she opted for a series of spray tans. During the casting call, she was wearing a black dress, which Bay apparently found underwhelming. When she took his advice and came back in a colourful dress, she landed the role.
It appears big things are awaiting Lucas in Hollywood. This month she was featured in Vanity Fair as a face to watch. Indeed, Lucas’s prospects look bright, having followed the Sophie Monk formula for fame by dating a string of high-profile men.
She recently ended up in co-star Shia LaBeouf’s car when the actor had an accident, leaving her with a nasty bump on her head.
SHE came home to Sydney to promote the new Transformers movie but Isabel Lucas’s over-zealous US publicist meant the trip was largely wasted.
Photographers were not only barred from any interviews she conducted, they were not allowed at Tuesday night’s premiere in Bondi Junction.
It’s understood Lucas was happy to pose – and did for an old paparazzo friend who contacted her directly.
Instead of vivid photos of Lucas at the launch, her US publicist, who flew back to LA with her charge yesterday, issued this bland handout photograph.
While the Westfield cinema complex has held many red carpet affairs, a Paramount spokeswoman yesterday said it was “too small” to stage one. It’s understood while Paramount wanted to open the event to photographers, the unnamed US publicist refused.
Shia LaBeouf admits he’s the luckiest guy in the world after kissing both US star Megan Fox and Aussie actress Isabel Lucas in the latest Transformers movie.
But the 22-year-old actor wisely opted not to disclose which kiss was better at a news conference for Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen in Tokyo on Tuesday.
“Oh Christ, thank you, I appreciate that question,” deadpanned LaBeouf, who was flanked on stage by the two beauties.
“It’s incomparable, they are both specimens cut out of stone.
“I’m the luckiest dude in the world clearly. Anything beyond these answers and I start getting in trouble.”
The bright lights of Tokyo are a long way from Summer Bay for former Home and Away starlet Isabel Lucas.
Lucas last night stepped onto the international stage with Shia LaBeouf, Megan Fox and Josh Duhamel at the world premiere of Transformers: Revenge Of The Fallen in the Japanese capital.
In the film, out on June 24 in Australia, LaBeouf reprises the role of Sam Witwicky, the human caught in the war between autobots and decepticons, and Fox returns as his girlfriend Mikaela.
Lucas plays Alice, a girl Sam meets at college. But there is more to Alice than meets the eye, and the character shows off a side of Lucas that audiences haven’t seen before.

, Rumoured Role
Word is that hottie Isabel Lucas is hoping to snag a role in the film thats got Hollywood buzzing.
Isabel Lucas has emerged as a frontrunner in a list of impossibly gorgeous twentysomethings auditioning for director Sofia Coppola for roles in her new film Somewhere.
Sofia has an uncanny knack for discovering new talent – she cast the then barely known Scarlett Johansson in her 2003 Oscar-winning movie Lost in Translation. And Isabel, 24, is hoping a part in Somewhere could do the same for her profile. Industry insiders say the actress met Sofia last week and is keen to take part.
Somewhere, also written by Sofia, is about a hard-living hollywood actor who re-examines his life after a visit from his 11-year-old daughter. Stephen Dorff has been cast as the father and Elle Fanning as his daughter, with filming expected to begin in July. It’s a family affair, produced by Sofia’s father Francis Ford Coppola’s American Zoetrope film studios, and will mark the producing debut of her brother Roman.
Isabel, who starred for three years in Home and Away, quit the show in 2006 and has since been pursuing a career in Hollywood. She stars in the new Transformers sequel and has already become a gossip column favourite. After splitting with Entourage star Adrien Grenier in August 2006, the actress has been linked to her Transformers co-star Shia LaBeouf, 30 seconds to Mars rocker Jared Leto, and The Waiting City co-star Joel Edgerton, who she was spotted kissing in Byron Bay in January.
But she also has a close circle of Aussie expat friends in LA, including Megan Gale, former Home and Away actress Sharni Vinson and Teresa Palmer. One LA powerbroker says: “Every aspiring young actress wants a part in Sofia’s film but she seemed really taken with Isabel. She thinks Isabel has real screen presence.”
Move over Scarlett! This could be Isabel’s big break.
