Although Brendan was born in Indianapolis, he was raised in various places including Ottawa, Seattle, California and Eureka as his parents moved from place to place. In 1990, he became a graduate of Seattle’s Cornish College of the Arts and began acting in New York. However, it was Hollywood that attracted him the most.

In 1991, Fraser began his career taking up small roles on television and in the cinema. Nevertheless, his first major role in the film “Encino Man” (1992) directed by Les Mayfield helped him to gain recognition. Despite the fact that the film received mostly negative reviews, it was box-office hit, moreover, Brendan was nominated for the Chicago Film Critics Association Award as the Most Promising Actor.

The same year Brendan won the Seattle International Film Festival Award as the Best Actor for his role in “Still Breathing” (1998) directed by James Ford Robinson. It is worth mentioning that the character of Richard O’Connell created in “The Mummy” franchise films received nominations every time a new sequel was released. Moreover, the ensemble in the film “Crash” (2004) directed by Paul Haggis won the Critics’ Choice Award, Screen Actors Guild Award and Hollywood Film Festival Award.

In 2006, Brendan Fraser debuted as an executive producer of the film he was starring in. “The Last Time” (2006). In the same manner he worked with the following films: “Journey to the Center of the Earth” (2008), “Furry Vengeance” (2010) and “Stand Off” (2012). His very last works include the main roles in the films “Pawn Shop Chronicles” (2013) directed by Wayne Kramer and “Gimme Shelter” (2013) directed and written by Ronald Krause.

#Quote
1 Ian McKellen is brilliant with research. I paid really close attention to the sources he goes to. He's a very, very intelligent man.
2 Forget acting. It's all about rock 'n' roll.
3 I've been grateful enough, smart enough to take the work with Ian McKellen in Gods And Monsters.
4 I was molded, spent my time underneath a lot of goo. And then the bits and pieces were sculpted. It took probably 10 days to create each character after all those camera tests.
5 Elizabeth Hurley and I had a lot of fun together. She's a very beautiful, confident woman.
6 I wish the rock 'n' roll scene to be back in.
7 The test audience holds a great deal of power in the process of film making in the United States.
8 Saigon is hot, full of atmosphere, activity, and commerce.
9 All you have to do is just believe in what's there; then, the audience will, too.
10 I would act whether or not I was paid. I would be involved in ensemble groups. I would have the desire to tell stories.
11 I remember thinking, I want to work for the camera.
12 Burroughs was never really that pleased with the way popular culture and society treated his character. He tried to make a few movies of his own as a result, but they weren't very good.
13 I wanted to have the opportunity to travel to Vietnam and Sydney, and have the chance to work there.
14 I recently watched Peter Brook's Lord of the Flies, and it wasn't a favorite film. Then I saw the one that was made in 1990, which in my opinion didn't match up to the original.
15 They had a hard time miking me in my loin cloth, I mean, where were they gonna tape it?
16 Maybe my caveman ancestors invented the wheel or something. I'm not sure.
17 I mean, it was a mummy movie. It was a good film independent of its source. It that looks like Lawrence of Arabia (1962) on steroids in a lot of ways.
18 I wish I could have 25,000 years of my personal family history documented in a very powerful computer or a CD-ROM that I could just pop in and my computer would never crash.
19 If you run an Internet search on Vietnam and the war, most of the information you get begins at about 1962. I think this is telling. It is missing the whole period that led up to the reasons the war happened in the first place.
20 I suppose if it has a practical purpose, I appreciate a pat on the back. I suppose it's rewarding, ultimately.
21 When you throw punches at actors, you stop, you pull it, and it looks like you pulled it. When you throw punches at cartoon characters, they are not there, so you can swing through. It looks like you really decked them.
22 Most people go, I wish for world peace. But chaos has a place in balancing out the light and the dark in the world. I don't know if I would wish for world peace.
23 I always approach comedy roles pretending they aren't funny.
24 I'm just glad that I have bragging rights to working with Bugs and Daffy.
25 Graham Greene, as I understand it, was quite outspoken in his criticism of American foreign policy.
26 Horrible things happen, but were they horrible? No, they were just circumstances of the world.
27 I don't believe that wishing works. I think we get the things we work for.
28 I'm starting to judge success by the time I have for myself, the time I spend with family and friends. My priorities aren't amending; they're shifting.
29 George of the Jungle is a cartoon. He's a guy who swings around on a vine all day. Are you not buying that?
30 I think you have to show homage to creators.
31 I have so much satisfaction in my life. I have a beautiful wife and the great stimulation of an interesting career. I'm the most happy fellow that I know.
32 I guess darkness serves a purpose: to show us that there is redemption through chaos. I believe in that. I think that's the basis of Greek mythology.
33 I still don't understand the music industry that much. Everything I learned was from hanging out with rock musicians in studios. I certainly have respect for those who make music their livelihood.
34 You do a movie, Hollywood loves you for a while. They love you, they love you, they love you until...oh, they love someone else now. It's not cyclical, it's ... it's ... ficklical!
35 [on turning forty] I feel all giddy inside. It's like when I turned 13 and I felt like I finally became a teenager. Now I feel like I'm finally becoming an adult. It's like earning another stripe in life.
36 What if William Shakespeare had had a test audience for "Romeo and Juliet" or "Hamlet"?
37 As sophisticated as the technology gets, the less sophisticated you have to become as an actor.
38 I believe you have a responsibility to comport yourself in a manner that gives an example to others. As a young man, I prayed for success. Now I pray just to be worthy of it.
