Fisher was born in Los Angeles County, California, to singer Eddie Fisher and actress Connie Stevens. Her older sister is actress and singer Joely Fisher. She has two half-siblings, actor and producer Todd Fisher and actress Carrie Fisher, from her father's previous marriage to actress Debbie Reynolds. Fisher's paternal grandparents were Russian-Jewish immigrants. Fisher's parents divorced when she was a baby and she and Joely were raised by Stevens. As children, both Tricia and Joely began performing on stage in their mother's Las Vegas show. They toured the world with their mother, attending many different schools and having tutors. Both girls would go on to attend Beverly Hills High School.
Fisher made her debut in the 1985 crime drama Stick, starring Burt Reynolds, Candice Bergen, George Segal, and Charles Durning. She then starred as Daphne Ziegler in the 1986 comedy Pretty Smart. In 1987, Fisher appeared in the television movie Strange Voices, opposite Valerie Harper. The following year, she landed a role in the TV movie Bring Me the Head of Dobie Gillis, also starring her mother as well as Dwayne Hickman and Bob Denver. In 1989, Fisher appeared in two movies, Hollywood Chaos and C.H.U.D. II: Bud the C.H.U.D., followed by roles in the 1990 comedy, Book of Love and Arizona Dream starring Johnny Depp, Jerry Lewis, and Faye Dunaway.
In addition to Fisher's work in movies, she has also made guest appearances on Our House, Growing Pains, Ellen, Wild Card, 7th Heaven, and 'Til Death. In 1996, she portrayed Heidi Fleiss in the CBS television movie The Making of a Hollywood Madam.
On October 7, 2006, Fisher was honored at The Thalians 51st Anniversary Ball along with producer Marc Cherry, her mother Connie Stevens, and her sister Joely Fisher. They performed together at the event at the Hyatt Regency Century Plaza Hotel in Century City, California.
