His maternal uncle, George Genereux, was the only Canadian to win a gold medal at the Olympic Trap in the 1952 Summer Olympics. Kevin, Regan, and Sean are his three older brothers. His ancestry includes Irish, Scottish, German, Czech, and French-Canadian.

Education

As a result of his parents’ repeated relocations, Brendan has ties to Ottawa, Indianapolis, Detroit, Seattle, London, and Rome. His early exposure to theatre, especially in London, led him to the Cornish Institute in Seattle.

During his childhood, Fraser’s family lived in Eureka, California, Seattle, Washington, Ottawa, Ontario, the Netherlands, and Switzerland. He attended Upper Canada College, a Toronto-based private boarding school.

During his vacation in London, he saw his first professional play in the West End, which sparked his interest in acting. In  1990, he graduated from Seattle’s Cornish College of the Arts. He began performing at a modest New York City acting school.

He intended to pursue a Master of Fine Arts in Acting at Southern Methodist University, but he stopped in Hollywood and decided to stay there to work in cinema.

Relationships

On July 4, 1993, after landing in Los Angeles, Fraser met actress Afton Smith during a barbecue at Winona Ryder‘s house. They married on September 27, 1998, and they have three sons: Griffin Arthur Fraser (born in 2002), Holden Fletcher Fraser (born in 2004), and Leland Francis Fraser (born in 2006).

Brendan Fraser & Afton Smith

Fraser’s publicist reported in December 2007 that the pair had chosen to divorce after their Beverly Hills home sold for $3 million in April 2007. Fraser was ordered to pay $50,000 in alimony each month for ten years or until Afton’s remarriage, whichever comes first, in addition to the $25,000 monthly child support payment, which will cease in January 2019.

Fraser approached the courts in early 2013 for a decrease in his alimony and child support payments, claiming that he was unable to make the $900,000 yearly commitment; Smith accused Fraser of concealing financial holdings. Fraser currently resides in Bedford, New York, as of February 2018.

Abilities And Skills

Fraser is a member of FilmAid International’s board of directors and is fluent in French. He has employed various instant cameras in films and television series, most notably in his cameo appearances on Scrubs.

Fraser is acknowledged in the dedication of the book Collector’s Guide to Instant Cameras. Additionally, he is a proficient amateur archer, utilizing his talents in the History Channel series Texas Rising.

Surgeries

The physical demands of Fraser’s stunts and movements in his action and comic roles prompted him to have multiple surgeries over the course of seven years, including partial knee replacement, laminectomy, and vocal cord surgery.

He also suffered a severe back injury when removing a downed tree after Hurricane Sandy (2012), necessitating surgery and rehabilitation.

Decline Phase In Career

Fraser claimed in 2018 that he was sexually attacked at a luncheon in the summer of 2003 by Philip Berk, the then-president of the Hollywood Foreign Press Association.

Fraser’s career suffered as a result of the assault, his following divorce, and the loss of his mother, which, combined with his health concerns and a backlash within the business for coming out against Berk, caused his career to deteriorate.
