Canadian actor, Noel Fisher has been rumored to be gay numerous times as he plays a gay character Mickey Milkovich in the series, Shameless. Although the actor has denied him being gay many times, speculations always run about. Hence shutting the rumor mill down, Noel got engaged to longtime girlfriend Layla Alizada while on a romantic getaway to St. Regis, Bora Bora in 2014.
Born in Vancouver, British Columbia, Noel had begun his acting career at a tender age of 14 in television movie “The Sheldon Kennedy Show”. He has had substantial role in TV shows such as Criminal Minds: Suspect Behavior, Lie To Me, Bones and Law & Order: Special Victims Unit. He played Ellison "Cotton Top" Mounts in the Emmy Award winning mini-series Hatfields & McCoys.
Some of his movies include Valentine, Freddy Got Fingered, Final Destination 2, Pope Dreams, Battle Los Angeles. He also plays Michelangelo, one of the four protagonists in the movie “Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles”. He also played the 1500 year old Vladimir in the final Twilight movie, Breaking Dawn – Part 2, which came out in 2012. Noel also loves to play piano which he loves and learned for 8 years.
The blondie Fisher, who has not had that many love affairs, met fiancé-to-be-wife Layla on the set of TV series Godiva's back in 2005, starring alongside one another for two seasons. Noel and Layla have been dating for 11 years now. The Kabul born, award-winning Afghan actress Layla Alizada has brought to life compelling, diverse characters in drama and comedy. Layla's first big break was co-starring opposite Juliette Lewis in "Chasing Freedom," where she played an immigrant woman seeking asylum in the United States. Her role garnered her a 2005 Gemini Award nomination for Best Performance by an Actress in a Featured Supporting Role in a Dramatic Program or Mini-Series, and she won a Gracie Award for Outstanding Supporting Actress in a Drama Special. She has starred in a number of TV shows inclusive of “The Muppets”, “The Mentalist” and “Melissa & Joey”.
Although engaged for 2 years now, Fisher and Alizada are not married yet! I’m guessing the duo can hardly wait for their big day!
Noel who has garnered massive appreciation for his role as Mickey Milkovich on showtime series Shameless, explained his and Mickey’s connection in an interview stating, "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 LGBTQ 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."
Noel Fisher has an estimated net worth of $1.3 million.
