    Brendan is such a beautifully thoughtful and articulate person. He expresses himself so genuinely, so effortlessly - it's like spending time with an old friend. If I ever get to meet the man himself, I could die happy.

      @ledgy69 He didn't have important roles for over a decade because he was blacklisted in Hollywood. He also used to get just comedy and blockbuster roles which tend to not be very well regarded for awards. This is the first time people are taking him seriously.

    By God, there’s no word in the English language how excited I am to see this legend make a much deserved comeback! He’s been one of my favorite actors since I was a kid. Airheads, George of the Jungle, The Mummy and Journey to the Center of the Earth were my favorite movies of his when I was a kid!

    My god, what an utterly gracious human being. It is so very rare to watch these types of things where the celebrity doesn't somehow put themselves front and centre, but in Brendan there isn't a hint of that, not a smidge! He simply exudes kindness, compassion and gratitude, as well as vulnerability. What a great example to us all. May all good things come your way Brendan, you so very much deserve them. xx

  • Volvith
    Volvith Month ago +39

    I still remember when i learned of Brendan's story with Hollywood.
    It hurts because i don't think there's many people more genuine, good and caring than Brendan Fraser, and i hope he gets the recognition he deserves. He's more than earned it.
    I grew up with the likes of George in the Jungle, the Mummy; Brendan Fraser is synonymous with my childhood. I really hope he gets the continued career he deserves. Love you man. :)

    I am so happy for Brendan. Seriously. He was in such a dark place. I can't even imagine how much strength it took for him to make it through that time, but now he is finally able to live his life again without hate. I have heard nothing but nice things about him. He seems so humble and respects EVERYBODY that played a part in his career.

  • Rodrigo Ribeiro Freitas

    He always talks with such passion that makes me want to cry. He really loves his craft, if he didn't he would've had retired years ago, but instead he soldiered on no what what. Now the pay off came, and if there's a guy that deserved it, it's him. I'm almost sure thats gonna be a documentary about his second coming, it's the perfect comeback story.

  • Kenzie Skowyra

      Nope, it's love.
      I've been a fan of Brendan's for a long time, and it's a genuine pleasure to see him getting the kind of real respect he's always deserved.
      I'm here 'cos I like the dude and I'm interested in what he has to say.
      Maybe in the future you should stick to speaking for yourself, instead of making assumptions about what other people think?

    His voice is somehow so rich with emotions, so vulnerable als if he has his heart in his mouth while he's speaking.
    I sometimes got a little teary-eyed when he talked so full of excitment, so positiviely about others and all the things he loves and respects. So honest and pure.
    I can only assume all this though :P since I don't know him but to me it really feels this way while listening and watching this video.

And it was/is so lovely to realise that on top of his charm, humour and good looks he is a genuinely lovely man. I am so happy to see his resurgence after all the difficulties he faced ❤ (p.s his John Cleese impression was amazing haha)

    A really great actor, and underneath it all he is a genuine and gentle guy too. Deserves more roles as he brings so much to the table he can only complement any roles he graces. Heres hoping that we see a lot more of Brendon Fraser over the next few years.

    Met him at a convention a few months back. Got his autograph and his assistants kept telling people to move along and not talk to him or ask him for a customized autograph. He listened to every person and customized every autograph if he was asked. He made eye contact with everyone and he was so appreciative of each person in line. Absolutely fantastic person.

    Was really hoping to see him talk about Airheads...which remains one of my favorite movies with Brendan Fraser...but man is it so great to see this man back on press tours and back getting the recognition he deserves.

    He seems like such a genuinely nice guy. The way he praised the people around him and describes how he's just happy to be part of it all, is really inspiring.

    Literally Charlie could only be played by Brendon. Like he did amazing portraying the character, all the actors were good but he was amazing. When the narration in the beginning started before the official view of Charlie, me and my friend heard Brendon's voice and no joke a huge wave of nostalgia hit is and we felt like little kids. Like we could believe just how much Brendon was entwined in our lives

    it's crazy how much different he looks now. I get it, people get old and change, I know that I have. But I agree it's amazing to see how much he gives credit to everyone else.

    • Alex Ferrier

      @EDGE Bad take and let me tell you why: You mentioning only the Mummy movies (probably his more Blockbuster films) already tells us that you havent seen his other better acting works. The Mummy films are easily the ones he required less acting skills, even as you can see in this interview (if you even finished the video, which I doubt judging by your comment), you could see he had not much to say acting-wise about the Mummy trilogy.
      So in other words, you are clueless and you lack the knowledge to support your opinion (and if you do have something interesting to say, please be my guest and elaborate). Perhaps next time try to educate yourself more before commenting on something you don't know much about.
      Also, using offending terms like "fat and old" and whatever edgy nonsense you could have came with, it is not going to make your comment any more believable.

      Brendan was one of my favorite action hero's, when I was growing up The Mummy was one of my favorite movies all because of Brendan's role as Rick O'Connell to see him on social media and even back in the movie industry is just mind blowingly awesome
      To Brendan you're an amazing actor and I hope to see you in a new movie someday.

    What a guy. He’s so authentic and down to earth. This was a great interview. His body language changes through the video. You can tell that towards the end he gets excited again about returning to film. Especially when he asks if there was another script for another “Mummy” sequel.
