Filming is well under way on Stan’s new original drama series Wolf Like Me.

And on Tuesday, Isla Fisher was spotted shooting dramatic scenes in Sydney with her lookalike body doubles.

The Australian actress, 45, wore a floral dress and grey plaid coat as her stuntwomen arrived in matching attire to take on the action scenes.

Isla’s doppelgängers mirrored her look down to the last detail as they were seen dashing across the set and leaping over a fence.

Her body doubles also carried handbags and brown heels while shooting the stunt.

Back in April, Stan announced that Wolf Like Me would be filmed in Australia.

Isla will play a character named Mary while her co-star Josh Gad will play Gary – two strangers who are brought together in a twist of fate.

Gary is described as an ’emotional wreck’, who ‘struggles to provide for his daughter since the death of his wife’.

Meanwhile, ‘Mary has a secret she can’t bring herself to share with anyone’.

In a statement to Stan, Forsythe said: ‘Wolf Like Me is a very meaningful project for me, the stakes are extremely high but grounded by things we can all relate to.

‘I’m so excited to have Isla and Josh on board, and I know the audience will be surprised seeing them in a different way as these characters.’

Isla was last seen in Curb Your Enthusiasm and the movie Godmothered.
