ISLA Fisher has taken a colourful swipe at her acting roots on soapie Home and Away, saying the long-running series helped her "look good in a bikini".

The 37-year-old actress played schoolgirl Shannon Reed on Home and Away in the mid-'90s before breaking into Hollywood, most recently starring in The Great Gatsby.

The flame-haired Aussie told The Guardian's Observer magazine she would be eternally grateful for her soapie roots, despite taking a swipe at the quality of the series' dialogue.

"Home and Away taught me how to look good in a bikini," she said.

"And how to deliver bad dialogue convincingly - a skill that really helped in the early days of my career."
