"It's not all about making money, it's about growth and being an artist.

Reflecting on her years working on Home and Away, the actress spoke fondly of her famous co-stars, including Jason Smith and Chris Hemsworth.

"I reflect on it with gratitude and think it was a very sweet entry into the film and television industry. The community on that project were very tight-knit and supportive," she added.
Isabel relocated from Los Angeles to Byron Bay in 2016, and travels back and forth between Australia and the U.S. for work.
Her rumoured ex boyfriend, Chris Hemsworth, also lives in Byron Bay with his wife, Elsa Pataky and their children, India Rose, Tristan and Sasha.
