Voice for Equality: Joely Fisher

Joely Fisher is an American actress best known for her work on television, but also on stage and in films. She is best known for her role as the vain and insensitive Paige Clark on the sitcom Ellen. She played the role until the series ended in 1998. That same year she earned a Golden Globe Award nomination. She has also had a recurring role as Lynette's bitchy boss Nina on Desperate Housewives, and has starred opposite actor Brad Garrett as Joy Stark in the Fox sitcom 'Til Death. Early film credits include: Pretty Smart (1986), Dedicated to the One I Love (1991) and I'll Do Anything (1994), along with television appearances on: Growing Pains, Blossom, Caroline in the City, The Outer Limits, Grace Under Fire and Coach. Fisher is the daughter of singer Eddie Fisher and actress Connie Stevens, and her younger sister is actress Tricia Leigh Fisher. Learn more here.

Ms. Fisher served on the Host Committee for a Hollywood fund-raising party organized by political consultant Chad Griffin and Oscar-winning producer Bruce Cohen which was held on October 20, 2009 to help support the marriage equality campaign in Maine. The invitation read:

While the fate of marriage equality in California makes its way through the Federal court system, the voters of Maine will decide whether or not to take away marriage rights, granted in May by the legislature, on November 3rd…OF THIS YEAR. That is why I am co-chairing, along with Bruce Cohen, a fundraiser for NO ON 1/PROTECT MAINE EQUALITY at Bruce’s house on Tuesday Night, October 20th from 6:30-8:30pm, and we are so hoping you will join us and/or contribute to help fight this important battle.
