Jordan Fisher began his acting career training and performing in his hometown of Birmingham, Alabama. It was here he emerged as a gifted actor, dancer and choreographer with a passion for singing, playing and writing music.
Jordan is one of the stars of Disney Channel’s hit movie “Teen Beach Movie” and he will also appear in “Teen Beach 2” set for release the Summer of 2015.
Jordan first became popular as the character, Jacob, on ABC’s “Secret Life of The American Teenager.” He was also seen this year guest starring on Nickelodeon’s “The Thundermans” and next year will be a recurring guest star on a highly popular Disney show Liv and Maddie.
Jordan’s performing roots are onstage and in December 2014 he delighted in wowing the audiences at the Pasadena Playhouse in California when he took the leading role in the Lythgoe’s production of Aladdin.
Born April 24, 1994, Fisher was diagnosed in the hospital with nerve damage and a temporarily paralyzed right arm. Right from birth he had to begin physical therapy and despite this rough start, at age two, began taking gymnastics. By ten years old, he garnered many gold medals in the South Eastern Region Men’s Gymnastics. He joined a local theatre company in Birmingham called the Red Mountain Theatre Company and it was there his gift for acting, singing and dancing was nurtured.
Jordan is an instinctive actor and a gifted dancer but he also has a passion for music. He plays piano, guitar, bass and drums and recently has been in the studio writing and recording original songs with some of LA’s top writer/producers, developing his repertoire in preparation for future performances and releases.
During this past year he released 3 singles on Radio Disney, “By Your Side”, “Never Dance Alone” and “What I Got”, all of which hit the charts. He was a guest performer at the Radio Disney Music Awards after party in April 2014 and this summer Jordan performed live at various Six Flags parks on the East Coast.
Jordan has a passion for giving back and demonstrates this by being a Youth Ambassador for GenerationON, an organization that encourages youth to become volunteers. He attends events that promote volunteerism and is a spokesperson for the organization.
He has also worked with the Children’s Hospital of Los Angeles where he enjoys visiting the patients and performed at last year’s tree lighting ceremony.
As a Disney VoluntEar he was sent to Ecuador to help build a school in a remote village. He loved learning about the local customs, making friends with the locals (especially the children) and putting in long hours building the school.
Jordan has been invited to play basketball with the Hollywood Knights team in November 2014 and is singing the National Anthem at the opening. This is a celebrity basketball team that raises money for charity
