On January 20, an independent London cinema screened

The Mummy

, the 1999 fantasy adventure film starring Brendan Fraser.

And the public had the nice surprise to see the actor arrive just before the session to wish them a good viewing.

"I'm proud to stand before you tonight," he told them, according to



“This film was made in the UK.

You should know that!

This is also the case for the second.

Be proud of it.

Thank you for being here.


A shooting full of mystery

And the actor lifted the veil on his feelings during filming.

"We had no idea what kind of film we were making when we shot it," said Brendan Fraser.

“We didn't know if it was a drama, a comedy, an action movie, a horror movie or even a romance… It was above all that.

We had no idea until it was tested on English spectators.

So thank you for that.


Made popular by

George of the Jungle

in 1997, Brendan Fraser saw his career propelled by

The Mummy

and its sequel released in 2001. However, immediately after, the actor went under the radar for many years.

He revealed the cause recently, when he spoke of the sexual assault he suffered in 1993 and which had completely destroyed him psychologically.

But Brendan Fraser is making a remarkable comeback today with a particularly demanding performance in

The Whale


La Baleine

, in French), Darren Aronofsky's latest film which will arrive in theaters on March 8.

His performance earned him an Oscar nomination for Best Actor this year.

He will also star in

Killers of the Flower Moon

, the next Martin Scorsese.
