  Summary  

Isabel Lucas is an Australian actress and model perhaps best known for her role as Tasha Andrews on the Australian television soap opera Home and Away (2003–2006). Lucas moved to Los Angeles in early 2008 and has since been featured in film and television projects including Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen, The Pacific and Daybreakers.

  Biography  

 early life
Lucas was born in Melbourne. As a child, Lucas lived in Cairns, Queensland. She also lived in Switzerland and Kakadu, in the Northern Territory. She has a Swiss mother and an Australian father and speaks German and French in addition to her native English. Lucas went to St. Monica's College in Cairns, Queensland, Australia.

 career
Lucas enrolled in the Victorian College of Arts but had never pursued commercial roles. Sharron Meissner, a Sydney talent agent suggests she 'discovered' Lucas strolling on the beach at Port Douglas . She auditioned for the role of Kit Hunter in Home and Away ; although the producer of the show, Julie McGauran, felt that role was not right for Isabel, she was sufficiently impressed to have a new character, Tasha Andrews, created for her. Lucas won a Logie Award for her performance on the program. Playing Tasha Andrews on Home and Away was Lucas' first television role. She appeared in an American television commercial for Crest toothpaste.

Lucas was cast as Gwen in the Steven Spielberg World War II miniseries, The Pacific. She appeared in Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen as Alice.
Reports suggested that although assigned to the William Morris Talent Agency in Los Angeles through the auspices of Meissner Management, Lucas obtained the role of Alice in her native Australia before moving permanently to America. It has been claimed that Lucas was handpicked by Steven Spielberg. Michael Bay, director and producer of Transformers, has denied that Spielberg influenced the decision to cast her. Her subsequent theatrical releases included Daybreakers and Red Dawn .

In 2010, Lucas appeared in an advertisement for Daylesford tourism.
