Until recently, Fraser was one of the most sought-after actors. He played leading roles in high-grossing hits like George from the Jungle, Blast from the Past, and the Mummy trilogy. Then he suddenly disappears from Hollywood. There were various rumors about what happened to Fraser, from alcohol addiction to getting lazy and complacent, but Brendan claims that the true reason is quite different. In 2003, the actor had dinner with Philip Burke, president of the Hollywood Foreign Press Association, when suddenly, Burke reached under the table and started touching Fraser in all the wrong places. Brendan quickly left the restaurant without even making a fuss since his career was on the line. And despite sending a letter to the Hollywood Foreign Press Association, he was completely cut off by Hollywood, which resulted in severe depression. Thankfully, Fraser made a comeback in 2019 with the amazing series Doom Patrol before he was welcomed with standing applause for the 2022’s drama, The Whale.
