Who is Brendan Fraser’s son Griffin?
Griffin Arthur Fraser was born under the zodiac sign of Virgo on 17 September 2002, in Bedford, New York State USA; he holds American nationality and his ethnicity is of mixed Irish, Scottish, German, Czech and French-Canadian descent. He’s still only known as the son of famous actor Brendan Fraser and his ex-wife Afton Smith, who is also an actress.
He was raised alongside his younger brothers, Holden (born in 2004) and Leland (born in 2006), by their parents until they divorced in 2008, and although Brendan and Afton share joint custody, Griffin and his brothers spend most of their time with their mother in Greenwich, Connecticut.
Griffin Arthur hasn’t attended public school, since from an early age he was diagnosed as autistic, meaning that he struggles with speaking, thinking, and feeling. In one of his interviews for the magazine GQ, Brandon said about his son: ‘Griffin is curative on everyone he meets’, and added ‘people never put themselves first around him’.
According to Brandon, Griffin’s younger brothers are very supportive of him – Leland acts like his spokesperson, and Holden is his enforcer,.
As a part of the therapy, Brendan bought Griffin a horse, named Pecas, and although he doesn’t ride him, he often brushes it, and that is something that both the boy and the horse enjoy.
He has no social media accounts, and his parents prefer to keep the lives of their children private, so there isn’t much information about Griffin’s childhood and raising, only some photos on the internet featuring the boys when they were younger. In 2018, Brandon took his sons on a vacation to Barbados, a Caribbean island, and the paparazzi captured them enjoying their time at the Fairmont hotel.
Love life and relationships
As mentioned, Griffin’s private life is a secret to the public, so there’s no information about his love life, but it’s assumed that he’s single, hasn’t been married or engaged, and doesn’t have children.
Age and height
Griffin is 19 years old, with dark brown hair and blue eyes he inherited from his father; according to sources, he weighs around 154lbs (70kgs) and is 5ft 8ins (1.73m) tall.
Who is Griffin’s mother, Afton Smith?
Afton Smith was born under the zodiac sign of Sagittarius on 3 December 1967, in Northport, Long Island, New York USA; she’s an actress with nearly 10 credits to her name, perhaps still known best for her role as Ursula’s friend in the 1997 adventure comedy “George of the Jungle”.
She also made appearances in movies such as “Less Than Zero”, “Reality Bites”, and “A Reason to Believe”, among others, and had a minor role in the series “Pig Sty”, however, she rose to prominence after marrying Brandon Fraser.
During their divorce she sued Brandon for $900,000 per year in alimony and child support payments, which the court ordered him to provide in 2009, but after four years, Brandon asked the court to reduce that amount, because as he said he wasn’t getting any recent new roles.
Afton claimed that he has hidden $9 million in film contracts back in 2009 when the divorce was in process, and Brandon then cited that he has medical problems, suffering a back injury, and after the divorce and his mother’s death, he was facing with depression.
The final decision of the court was that Brandon pays $50,000 per month to his ex-wife for the next ten years, or until she remarries.
