Early and personal life

Fisher was born on February 24, 1958 in Burbank, California,[1] to actors Eddie Fisher and Debbie Reynolds. Fisher's paternal grandparents were Russian Jewish immigrants,[2][3][4][5] while his mother's ancestry was Protestant, Scots-Irish, and English.[6][7][8][9] Fisher, who was named after his father's best friend, Mike Todd, is the second of two children born to his parents. He is the brother of Carrie Fisher (1956-2016).

His parents divorced in 1959. A later marriage between his father and actress Connie Stevens resulted in the births of Fisher's two half-sisters, Joely Fisher and Tricia Leigh Fisher. In 1960, his mother married Harry Karl, owner of a chain of shoe stores. His mother and stepfather divorced in 1973, when Fisher was 15 years old.

Fisher attended Beverly Hills High School, graduating in 1976. Following high school graduation, he attended the Southern California Institute of Architecture in Los Angeles.[10]

In 1980, Fisher became a born-again Christian and was subsequently ordained as a minister in 1982. Following his ordination, he founded Hiding Place Church, along with musician Henry Cutrona of Christian country rock band Gentle Faith. A non-denominational, charismatic congregation, the church first met in North Hollywood at his mother's DR Studios. After outgrowing that location, the church was moved to Beverly Theater in Beverly Hills. By 1986, the church had relocated from that location to Emerson Middle School in Westwood, Los Angeles, California with an average Sunday attendance of 1,000.[11][12]

On February 15, 1981, Fisher married his high school sweetheart, Donna Freberg, daughter of Stan Freberg.[11] After the couple's divorce, Fisher married Christi (née Zabel) Rivers. With their marriage, Fisher became stepfather to Vanessa, James and Brandon, Rivers' children from her marriage to singer Johnny Rivers. Fisher's wife died from cancer in 2008.[13] Fisher then married actress-businessperson Catherine Hickland on December 25, 2012.[14] The couple has a home in Las Vegas and a ranch in California.[15]
