She almost drowned during shooting a scene for Иллюзия обмана (2013), in which she performed in a piranha tank. The top of the tank remained opened so that Fisher would be able to swim to the top to get some air, and there was also an emergency lever inside the tank that, if pulled, would alert the crew that she needed help. During one take, Fisher was running out of air and tried to swim to the top, but the chains on the handcuffs she was wearing got stuck on the bottom of the tank, so she was unable to swim to the top or pull the lever. She then attempted to alert the crew by hitting the glass of the tank, but since her character is supposed to be panicked and scared in the scene, the crew thought she was acting. The stunt coordinator finally realized that something was wrong after he noticed that her handcuffs were stuck. Baz Luhrmann is her favorite director and she agreed to star in his film Великий Гэтсби (2013), without reading the script.
