After spending taking a break from acting to focus on his mental health, Brendan Fraser marked his return to Hollywood with «The Whale.» In the film, Brendan portrays a 600-pound English professor named Charlie who tries to reconnect with his estranged daughter Ellie (Sadie Sink). His performance was so well-received by critics that it earned him a 2023 SAG Award for best actor, as well as a number of other accolades.
In order to help him get into the role of Charlie, Brendan said he took inspiration from his own desire to be with his family. «Being with my kids and their mom and our family has given me such love that if ever I needed to hold something of value up to try and translate that to what was important to Charlie, I didn’t have to look far,» he told Interview in November 2022.
The actor shares three kids, Griffin Arthur, Holden Fletcher, and Leland Francis Fraser, with ex-wife Afton Smith. Although he and Smith split in 2007, they continue to coparent their children together. Brendan is now dating makeup artist Jeanne Moore and they’ve been together since September 2022.
