Although the divorce was highly publicized and the aftermath of it, both Brendan and Afton have carefully left out the children from all the media buzz. Holden has rarely appeared in the media and there is no clear information about which school he attends.

Holden Fletcher Fraser’s Father, Brendan Fraser Biography
Brendan James Fraser was born on 3 December 1968, in Indianapolis, Indiana USA, to Canadian parents, Peter Fraser and Carol Mary. The youngest of four siblings, he has three brothers, Kevin, Regan and Sean, and is of German, Czech, French-Canadian, Irish and Scottish ancestry. Although born in the US, he lived in various countries during his childhood, including Netherlands, Switzerland and Canada.
He went to Upper Canada College, a private boarding school in Toronto, and spent a year on vacation in London, where he went to see a theatre show in the West End, which generated his interest in acting. After matriculating, he enrolled at Seattle’s Cornish College of the Arts, from which he obtained his Bachelor of Arts degree. He had plans to obtain a Master of Fine Arts in Acting from Southern Methodist University, however, he tried his luck in Hollywood, and opted for a career in acting.
He made his debut in the television movie “Child of Darkness, Child of Light” in 1991, and continued with a couple of minor roles in such films as “Dogfight”, and “Guilty Until Proven Innocent”, both in 1991, while in 1992 he secured his first major role as Link, the frozen pre-historic cavemen but living in the present day, in the comedy film “Encino Man”. He spent the ‘90s building his portfolio, with roles in such films as “Airheads” (1994), “Glory Daze” (1995), then “George of the Jungle” (1997), before he won the role of Rick O’Connell in the popular trilogy “The Mummy” in 1999.
He reprised the role in the sequels “The Mummy Returns” (2001), and “The Mummy: Tomb of the Dragon Emperor” (2008).
In between these commitments, Brendan featured in several other prominent roles, including as Elliot in the film “Bedazzled” (2000), then as Stu Miley in the film “Monkeybone” (2001), and as Alden Pyle in the Academy Award-nominated romantic thriller drama film “The Quiet American” (2002), among others. His career began declining, as he started experiencing problems on a personal basis, and so failed to secure another prominent role until 2015, when he was cast as Billy Anderson in the TV mini-series “Texas Rising”, and continued with the role of John Gunther in the TV series “The Affair” (2016-2017).
Recently, he started voicing Cliff Steele/ Robotman in the animated series “Doom Patrol” (2019-2021). He is now working on several projects, including the films “Killers of the Flower Moon” and “Batgirl”, scheduled for its premiere in 2022.
Brendan had financial difficulties following his divorce, and his inability to secure a high-paying role, which resulted in negative net worth. However, he has bounced back and Brendan’s net worth is now estimated to be around $20 million, as of late 2021.
Brendan and Afton Smith met while attending a barbecue at Winona Ryder’s house in 1993. The couple married five years later, but eventually divorced.
He is now single, and living in Bedford, New York State USA.
