Elsie Kate Fisher, born April 3rd 2003, was destined for great things, and it wasn't long before everyone realised it. At age five, a family friend noticed that Elsie had a "flair for the dramatic" and resembled child actress Dakota Fanning. She gave the Fishers contact information for a talent agent who immediately took interest in little Elsie. Within one month of joining the agency Elsie had booked a commercial and a lead role in the animated movie Despicable Me. From there Elsie soared.
Elsie has only been acting for six years and she already has an impressive resume, with over 16 commercials to her name. In 2010 Elsie had four national commercials all airing at the same time. Elsie also has television guest spots in Medium, Mike & Molly and Raising Hope under her belt and has continued her voice-over work on television, voicing Masha in the english language version of the Russian children's cartoon Masha and The Bear.
Elsie's big break came in the form of the 2010 animated movie Despicable Me which she booked in her first month of joining her agency. She voices the character Agnes, a young orphan who, along with her older sisters, is adopted by Gru, a villian out to steal the moon. It took Elsie about 10 trips to Los Angeles to record all her lines for the movie but she said that she 'really liked working on the movie' because she got to meet a lot of friends. Elsie reprised her role as Agnes in the sequel Despicable Me 2 in 2013. The movie was a box office success and was nominated for two oscars.
Elsie has been involved in multiple short films, regularly staring in final projects for budding film students in her town. In 2012 she and her younger brother Nathan were seen in Russ Lamoureux's short film Peter at the End alongside Jon Heder. Other credits include Dirty Girl, Bad Behavior, Vertical and the upcoming feature film Gutshot Straight. In 2013 Elsie was part of a Kickstarter campaign to fund the documentary Be Natural: The Untold Story of Alice Guy-Blaché. Elsie was interviewed for the documentary and said the project changed the way she thinks.
In December 2013 it was announced that Elsie would play Kevin Costner's daughter in the upcoming Disney sports film McFarland, alongside Maria Bello and Morgan Saylor. Based on a true story, the movie centers around a high school track coach (Costner) who transforms a team of athletes into championship contenders. Elsie plays his youngest daughter Jamie and spent almost 2 months filming in Mcfarland, California. The film is due to be released on November 21 2014. It will be Elsie's biggest role to date. The future is bright for this girl!
Not only is Elsie a big, and small, screen star, she's also a normal girl who loves playing video games, painting and reading. She enjoys acting and plans to continue for a long time. She also hopes to become a scientist some day. Elsie has the charm, the heart and the natural ability, making her a truly unique and special young girl.
