Refreshing and inventive, actor Noel Fisher has hit the entertainment industry as a force to be reckoned with in 2011. Fisher has become one of Hollywood’s most sought after and versatile performers in the business, delivering a wide range of characters for some of the hottest projects in the entertainment world. In 2011, Fisher can first be seen on the brand new, hit Showtime series Shameless, as “Mickey Milkovich,” opposite William H. Macy and Emmy Rossum. In March 2011, Fisher can be seen in the highly anticipated, Columbia feature film BATTLE: LOS ANGELES, with his epic portrayal of rookie Marine “Pfc. Shaun Lenihan”, opposite Aaron Eckhart. He is also currently filming the latest chapter in the worldwide phenomenon THE TWILIGHT SAGA: BREAKING DAWN Parts 1 & 2, playing the intense role of “Vladimir,” a Romanian vampire [slated for release in late 2011 and 2012.]
Originally from Vancouver, B.C. Fisher has been steadily gaining momentum as an actor since he was 14 years old. Fisher credits his range to the copious amounts of extra curricular activities he participated in, when he was younger. He shares, “My parents did me a huge favor by putting me in different types of classes growing up.” Whether it was dance, piano, art, or even circus training, Fisher excelled in his efforts. Fisher’s very first role was in a TV movie called The Sheldon Kennedy Story for CBC in 1999. The role landed Fisher his first prestigious Canadian GEMINI nomination, which was followed with a second nomination for his work on the hit Canadian series Godiva’s [2005-2006.]
Once gaining momentum in Canada, Fisher proved that his talent would translate to the US television and movie screens - appearing on various television series such as Two and a Half Men, The Mentalist, Medium, Law and Order: SVU, Huff, and Bones. In 2008, he went to Sundance with the independent film RED [Official Selection] alongside Brian Cox. 2010 was a stand out year for Fisher, as he was seen in the HBO nominated miniseries The Pacific, the follow up to the hit miniseries A Band of Brothers. His other television credits from last year include solid performances in Lie to Me, Terriers, and Dark Blue. Audiences may remember Fisher from his breakout performance in the critically acclaimed FX series The Riches, portraying “Cal,” the conniving and clever son of Eddie Izzard and Mini Driver.
When not working, Fisher loves to go camping, go to the beach, or just hang out at home with a good movie and some frozen yogurt. He also is an animal lover, and supports the efforts of The Humane Society of the United States, and Defenders of Wildlife.
