Personal Life

Isabelle Fuhrman born February 25, 1997 is an American actress. Fuhrman is best known for playing Esther in the 2009 horror film Orphan, and Clove, the female tribute from District Two, in The Hunger Games.

She was born in Washington, D.C., and raised in Atlanta. Her Soviet-born mother, Elina Fuhrman, is a journalist, and her father, Nick Fuhrman, is a former political candidate and business consultant. She has an older sister, Madeline Fuhrman who is a singer and songwriter.  Fuhrman's acting career began at the age of seven, when a casting director from Cartoon Network spotted her waiting for her sister and cast her for one  of the shows, Cartoon Fridays. Fuhrman made her big screen debut just a few years later in the 2007 drama Hounddog. The same year, Fuhrman was chosen to star in the movie Orphan alongside Vera Farmiga and Peter Sarsgaard. Fuhrman was cast through an exhaustive nationwide search of young actresses to portray the lead in the Warner Bros. collaboration between Leonardo DiCaprio’s Appian Way and Joel Silver’s Dark Castle Entertainment. It was DiCaprio who discovered Fuhrman through an audition tape and decided he would not make Orphan without her.  Fuhrman's other credits include the role of Gretchen Dennis (aka Girl Ghost) opposite Jennifer Love Hewitt on the hit TV show Ghost Whisperer, Grace O'Neil in the pilot episode of the 2006 television series Justice, and a number of national commercials like Pizza Hut and K-Mart. Her performance as Gretchen Dennis in Ghost Whisperer earned her a Young Artist Award nomination. Fuhrman also appeared in comedy skits on the Tonight Show with Jay Leno, and she is known to have provided character voices for Cartoon Network's "Cartoon Fridays".  In 2010, Fuhrman was cast in the lead role of Angie Vanderveer in the dark comedy Salvation Boulevard (based on the novel by Larry Beinhart), which premiered at the Sundance Film Festival in 2011. Fuhrman is part of an ensemble cast that includes Pierce Brosnan, Marisa Tomei, Greg Kinnear, Jennifer Connelly and Ed Harris.  On May 11, 2011, Lionsgate confirmed that Fuhrman had been cast in the role of Clove in the film The Hunger Games, expected to be released in 2012.  Fuhrman is currently attending a private school in Southern California.
