Highest Rated: 61% I'll Do Anything (1994)

Lowest Rated: Not Available

Birthday: Oct 29, 1967

Birthplace: Burbank, California, USA

Having two enormously popular performers for parents might have seemed like the ideal base camp for a young girl with dreams of becoming an actress. In the case of Joely Fisher - daughter of 1950s' teen idol Eddie Fisher and singer/actress Connie Francis - it actually made for a rocky start in life. Behind the perfect coif and shiny teeth of dad's hit album covers, lay an unhappy addict who split from the family early on. Add to her father's departure, Fisher's pressure to compete with her vivacious and glamorous mom, and she emerged as an unhappy teen with a weight problem. But the future actress survived the ups and downs of youth and the subsequent soul-searching, surfacing as a Golden Globe-winning TV actress, a Broadway performer, and the mom of a much higher-functioning family of her own. She was not just another child of Hollywood. Instead, she was as much a self-made woman who paid her dues, as were any ambitious redheads who had stepped off a bus into Hollywood with dreams of fame and fortune.
