If you were a child in the ’90s, you probably counted at least one Brendan Fraser film among your favorites. The Mummy, George of the Jungle, Encino Man – all were popular. But then Fraser got older and just… disappeared. No more box office hits; no more anything, in fact. Then in early 2018 a shocking interview with Fraser hit the internet. And it explained everything.
The story of how Fraser began his career seems like a lighthearted one – but on closer inspection it appears that he was always a man living on the edge. Indeed, when Fraser first started working as an actor, he embraced the danger sometimes associated with the job. If there was a difficult stunt that needed to be done, he would do it.
