Noel Roeim Fisher[2] (born March 13, 1984) is a Canadian actor. He is known for his portrayal of Mickey Milkovich on the Showtime series Shameless, as well as his portrayal of Cael Malloy on the FX series The Riches. He played Ellison "Cotton Top" Mounts in the Emmy Award–winning miniseries Hatfields & McCoys as well as Vladimir, a 1,500-year-old vampire in The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn – Part 2, and Michelangelo in Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles and its sequel Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Out of the Shadows. He also has had roles in shows such as Criminal Minds: Suspect Behavior, Lie to Me, Bones, and Law & Order: Special Victims Unit.


Early life[edit]

Fisher was born in Vancouver, British Columbia. He began his acting career at the age of 14 in the television movie The Sheldon Kennedy Story.[3] During his time as a young actor in Vancouver, he was encouraged to "take many different classes" and "fell in love" with piano, which he studied for eight years.[4]


Fisher began his acting career at age 14. He debuted in 1999 with The Sheldon Kennedy Story, a sport drama movie on the ice hockey player Sheldon Kennedy. His performance landed Fisher his first Gemini Awards nomination. He gained a second nomination with the TV series Godiva's in 2005.[5] He played Brian Gibbons in Final Destination 2 in 2003, one of his first roles in an American movie. From 2007, Fisher became more known by public due to the FX series The Riches, portraying Cael, the conniving and clever son of Eddie Izzard and Minnie Driver.

Fisher has received many accolades for playing Mickey Milkovich, a gay thug character on Shameless.[5] Though Fisher is straight, his sexuality is often questioned in interviews. He has responded to the controversy:

I don't look at Mickey as a gay character. I look at him as a person, who happens to be gay. I think it's weird how we, as a society, try to put the LGBT community in a box, when in fact, they are just people. They have the same complexities as you and me. That's how I look at Mickey, as a complex person.[6]

He is seen in the National Geographic miniseries called The Long Road Home as Pfc. Tomas Young, the 24-year-old soldier and later peace activist in the battle held on April 4, 2004, also known as the "Black Sunday".[7] In May 2020, Fisher appeared in the Al Capone biopic Capone as Junior, Capone’s son.[8] He starred in the limited CBS series The Red Line and also recurred in the Hulu series Castle Rock.[9][10]

Personal life[edit]

Since November 2004, Fisher has been in a relationship with actress Layla Alizada. The couple were engaged in 2014, and on July 15, 2017, were married.[11]
