She Landed The Role Of Elsa Dutton In 1883 By Failing An Audition
After obtaining the credits for Alexa & Katie and Young Sheldon, she was invited to Texas by Taylor Sheridan (creator of Yellowstone), to audition for a role in his upcoming project ‘Mayor of Kingstown.’ It did not work out for her, but she left an impression on Taylor and he offered her a role in 1883 three weeks later as Elsa Dutton. Isabel recalls her reaction to the offer on The Hollywood Reporter:
“I said, ‘Well, of course, I’ll be Elsa Dutton because you’re Taylor Sheridan and it’s my dream to work with you.”
Her role as Elsa Dutton boosted her career into A-list territory as she was able to act alongside a star-studded cast including Sam Elliott, Tim McGraw, Faith Hill, and Billy Bob Thornton.
The premiere of 1883 drew the most cable viewers since 2015 and is Paramount’s most-watched original series premiere, ever. Season 1 of 1883 lasted 10 episodes and can be watched on the ViacomCBS streamer.
