It’s been 18 years since the first of The Mummy franchise movie was released, but the 49-year-old actor Brendan Fraser looks nothing like the action-hero Rick O’Connell from the movie. The American star Brendan looked notably different as he took a stroll in London on 20 December evening. He was wearing clear rimmed glasses and a flat cap, looking down-to-earth on the streets of London. The once dreamy actor and character George of the Jungle wore relaxing clothes and a casual black sweater.
He also wore a brown leather jacket as well as scuffed brown boots. The actor was apparently alone as he stopped to examine some street art on a nearby wall.
Brendan then went to a Chinese restaurant for dinner.
Brendan once played George Of The Jungle, which allowed him to rise to fame in 1997.
One of his first roles was in the 1992 film Encino Man.
In the same year, he acted with Matt Damon in School Ties.
The 1997’s comedy George Of The Jungle was his first great success, though.
However, it was The Mummy franchise really kickstarted his career and sent his fame skyrocketing. He was the leading action star and battled the mythical Egyptian creatures.
The first film of the franchise was titled The Mummy.
It was released in 1999, whereas the second one called The Mummy Returns was released in 2001.
The 2008’s The Mummy: Tomb Of The Dragon Emperor also saw great success.
There was an intended fourth movie, but it never came to being.
This year, however, there was a reboot released.
It didn’t include any of the old cast, though. The movie starred Tom Cruise and was set in the present day. The film’s plot was set in Iraq and followed a Navy SEAL and his team that battle Mummies led by Ashurbanipal.
In 2004, Brendan appeared in the Academy Award-winning film Crash.
In 2016, Brendan replaced Ray Liotta in the Bollywood thriller, The Field.
Nowadays, he looks completely unrecognizable on the streets of London.
