Singer, actor Eddie Fisher dead at 82
Los Angeles/New York, Sep 25, Singer and actor Eddie Fisher, 82, perhaps best remembered for his string of marriages with Hollywood starlets, has died, according to media reports in Los Angeles.
He died Wednesday at his home in Berkeley, California, from complications of a recent hip surgery.
He was married to Hollywood icon Elizabeth Taylor from 1959-64. Fisher had left his first wife, musical actress Debie Reynolds, to become the fourth of Taylor’s eight husbands.
Fisher was later married for three years to singer-actress Connie Stevens. He had five marriages in all.
The smooth-voiced Fisher was a constant presence in the US pop music charts in the 1950s. Any Time was one of his biggest hits.
He hosted successful television shows during the ’50s and parlayed his musical fame and youthful looks into Hollywood acting roles.
