Teenage Sons of Brendan Fraser Make Unusual Appearance at Premiere of “The Whale”

On November 29, Brendan Fraser was supported by his sons for the “The Whale” world premiere in New York City. He went to the movie with his two youngest kids, Holden (18) and Leland (16), whom he had with his ex-wife Afton Smith. They both resembled young Fraser in his “George of the Jungle” days and shared his blue eyes. This excursion is the youngsters’ first time walking the red carpet with their famous father. Holden donned a blue suede jacket over a grey turtleneck, Leland wore a pattern button-down that emphasised his orange hair colour, and Fraser kept things simple with a navy pinstripe suit.

Leland plays guitar for the rock ‘n’ roll jam band The Alligators, while Holden and Leland are both models with the Marilyn Agency’s New York office. Griffin, a 20-year-old son of Fraser and his ex-wife, was not present for the viewing. Fraser seldom discusses his family, but he recently revealed how his friendship with Griffin, a child with autism, made him feel closer to Charlie, the reclusive English teacher he plays in “The Whale.”

He told Interview magazine about his eldest kid, “He’s the happiest person and is, in my life and many others’, also the embodiment of love.” If I ever needed to hold something of value up to try to communicate that to what was essential to Charlie, I didn’t have to go far since being with my kids, their mom, and our family has given me such love.

Fraser earned a standing ovation after the film’s original screening in September at the Venice International Film Festival. “The Whale” will be released in theatres on December 9. In the Darren Aronofsky-helmed A24 film, Sadie Sink’s character, played by Fraser, is an overweight teacher who is trying to get back in touch with his estranged daughter. Fraser’s triumphant comeback to acting in this film after a lengthy hiatus during which he concentrated on his mental health.
