Isabel feels the lure of Errol
THERE’S no place like home for Isabel Lucas.
The 32-year-old has spent the past couple of weeks here working on In Like Flynn, a movie depicting the early life of legendary Australian actor Errol Flynn (inset, above).
Lucas wrapped filming on her role — a young woman called Rose, who is an amalgamation of the women in Flynn’s life before he headed to Hollywood — on Friday.
Having been based in LA for seven years, she said she had “felt the call to come home”.
“It felt right to come home,” she said. “I’m excited to be back. “I did the film Daybreakers in Brisbane and I loved working with the Spi- erig twins, Michael and Peter. It was my first project, my first film after Home and Away.’’
The $12 million biopic, which is helmed by accomplished Australian director Russell Mulcahy and stars Thomas Cocquerel as Flynn, is still filming.
Mulcahy said the movie revealed the actor’s incredible untold story before he made it big in Hollywood.
