“I’m 5 feet tall, and that’s on a good day.”

“Working with a green screen was a little challenging but once I used my imagination, it was easier.”

“You are going to understand the story even if you haven”t seen any of the others. Michael Bay wanted to bring the youth back to the movie.”

“There were explosions behind us, cars were flipping… I was just nervous for my life because I was trying to stay up with Mark Wahlberg in these little heel boots. You have to allow your primal instincts to kick in to stay alive. I made it.”

“It was fun and it was crazy and it was also like the best experience a 15-year-old could have [filming Transformers: The Last Knight], so thanks, Michael Bay.”

“Shia [LaBeouf] was my first introduction to Transformers.”

“I don’t think I’m a scary person. Maybe it comes down to how I’m always traveling. I guess I’m going to make my dad happy by not dating till I’m 30.”

“I can make the best fart noises. I can make like 10 different sounds at different levels. It was super-fun on set as serious a movie as it is.”

“I just tell people I got into a fight. And that they should see the other guy.”

“I had two brothers, and those [Hot Wheels] were the most interesting toys to me. I just gravitated towards them. No one told me to; no one told me I shouldn’t. I just kind of did. People should make those decisions based on what they’re drawn towards.”

Isabela Merced has climbed the ladder of success quite fast. Year after year, she never ceased to amaze her fans and the general public with her acting and singing projects.
