Who Is Amy Fishman? 

Amy Fonda Fishman is the adopted daughter of actor, Henry Fonda and his third wife, actress Susan Blanchard. She was born in 1953 and was adopted by Fonda and Blanchard not long after she was born.

Amy Fishman inherited $200,000 from her father when he died in 1982. Her older siblings on the other didn’t receive any share of Henry Fonda’s estate because he believed they were already successful at the time hence willed his estate to Amy and her father’s fifth wife, Shirlee Mae Adams.

Unlike her father and siblings, Amy Fonda Fishman has chosen to live her life away from the spotlight. As a result, we do not have much information about her to share with you.
