Lucas was involved in drama during her school years and attended courses at Victorian College of Arts and Queensland University of Technology. After being discovered while vacationing by her now agent Sharron Meissner, she auditioned for the role of Kit Hunter in Home and Away; although the producer of the show, Julie McGauran, felt that role was not right for Isabel, she was sufficiently impressed to have a new character, Tasha Andrews, created for her.

In 2009, she appeared in the vampire science-fiction thriller film Daybreakers with Willem Dafoe. While working with Steven Spielberg on the World War II miniseries The Pacific, Spielberg suggested Lucas for the role of Alice in the sequel Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen, where he served as executive producer for the film with Michael Bay as the director.
In 2009, she was cast in the remake of the 1984 film Red Dawn, alongside Josh Peck and Josh Hutcherson, and Home and Away. The film was originally going to be released in late 2010, but due to financial problems it was pushed back to September 2011, then officially released in November 2012.
