The series not only made him famous and a popular actor but it was a kind of turning point for his entertainment career. Soon after that he started getting regular roles and has never looked back since then. He makes most of his wealth from movies and acting. His current net worth is reported to be $25 million.
Brendan Fraser was born in 1968 in Indiana. His parents were Canadian and he is the nephew of George Genereux. He attended a local school for his education and then went to graduate from Cornish College of Arts in 1990. He had further plans for studies but dropped out in order to pursue his acting and filming career. He has been working as an actor in Canadian movies as a child artist and received great appreciation. These little roles as a kid helped him emerge as a great actor and paved his way for further roles in American movies.
When it comes to his professional career, he was first seen in America’s Most Wanted movie. After that he worked in Dogfight in 1991. Then he has other roles including the movies like Encino Man, School Ties and others. In 2000, he also lent his voice for the movies and earned a lot of money from that as well.

He has been an amazing and a great actor throughout his career. In 2006, he won Screen Actors Guild Award for his role in Crash. He has been nominated for many other awards and titles. He won the Hollywood Film Festival award in 2005 and Gotham Award as well, the same year.
When it comes to his net worth, we know he is a great and popular actor so he has collected a lot of money from his acting career. But he has also been a victim of controversies, child support issue and mortgage problems. These issues have consumed a lot of his wealth. In 2013, along with his lawyer he went to the court to seek reduction in the amounts he was paying in mortgages and child support.
He had the reason that he was not making enough money in millions that he did few years ago. So it has been found out that he has spent a lot of wealth and his net worth has reduced over the years. The expenses also make it hard for him to create more money.
Talking about the personal life of the actor, he has been dating a number of girls. But he finally married Afton Smith in 1998. The couple had three children together. The relationship ended when the couple got a divorce in 2007. And it’s Brendan who pays for the education, expenses and support of his three sons.
