ProfileActor. Born Brendan James Fraser on December 3, 1968 in Indianapolis, Indiana. One of three sons of a Canadian tourism executive, Fraser traveled with his family constantly throughout his childhood. After studying acting at Seattle's Cornish College of the Arts, he landed leading roles in several films, including 1992?s Encino Man, 1992?s School Ties and 1994?s The Scout.
Throughout his career, Fraser has easily switched gears from such silly fare as 1997?s George of the Jungle and 2003?s Looney Tunes: Back in Action to poignant dramatic work, including 1998?s Gods and Monsters and 2002?s critically acclaimed Quiet American. Fraser?s biggest blockbuster came in the action adventure The Mummy in 1999, which was so popular that a sequel, The Mummy Returns, was released in 2001.
Fraser married actress Afton Smith in 1998; they have two sons, Griffin Arthur and Holden Fletcher.
