Isla Fisher ‘saved Josh Gad’s life’ when the actor nearly fell off a cliff

Josh Gad has recounted how Isla Fisher ‘saved his life’ while on the set of their new Stan series Wold Like Me.

Speaking on The Kyle and Jackie O Show, Gad, 40, said ‘intense winds’ nearly blew him off the edge of a cliff in Broken Hill.

‘We did have some of the most intense winds that I’ve ever experienced in my life,’ said the Frozen star.

‘Isla and I were up on top of a cliff, and she had to stabilise me, which is a lot.’

Kyle then asked Isla if she’d saved Josh’s life, but the Australian star remained modest. 

‘It was very windy that day, but we got so lucky,’ the 45-year-old admitted.

The revelation comes after Isla revealed she almost didn’t become an actress.

Before embarking on her incredible acting career, the 45-year-old had rather different aspirations. 

Appearing on Nova’s Fitzy and Wippa on Thursday, Isla spoke about her time at clown school.

She made the surprising admission while discussing the amount of running she does in scenes for her new show. 

‘I can’t show off that I went to NIDA,’ she said, in reference to the prestigious acting institute in Sydney –  the National Institute of Dramatic Art. 

‘But I did go to clown school where I was mocked and made to run in front of the whole class while everyone laugh because my running technique was such an embarrassment.

‘So to do this show [Wolf Like Me], I got this special lady in who like filmed me running and showed me just how foolish it was and we broke it all down so I did a little running practice.’

The Confessions of a Shopaholic star was a student at a prestigious clown school in France.

She also spoke about her experience while appearing on The Project back in 2016, and said she struggled to learn the art of juggling.

‘I’d say that juggling was certainly not my specialty. I was one of the last people in the whole class to really be able to get three balls in the air,’ she explained while quickly noting, ‘That’s not a euphemism.’ 

Isla attended the famous school at age 21 after finding success on Home And Away during the early 90s. 

She initially struggled to adjust to life in the French capital while studying clowning and mime although in the end, the married mother of three said previously that it was all worthwhile.

‘I moved to Paris after Home And Away to go to clown school,’ she told The Guardian’s Observer magazine.

‘I didn’t speak French and I felt so out of my depth. I was terrified [but] eventually I broke through – my French became fluent and I enjoyed performing in a way that I hadn’t in a long time.’

Since graduating from the school, Isla, who is married to English actor, Sacha Baron Cohen, 50, has gone on to star in a series of notable Hollywood blockbusters including Wedding Crashers, which catapulted her to international fame in 2005.
