THE MUMMY RETURNS
FRASER (Rick O'Connell) As a Legionnaire, Rick O'Connell was appropriately fearless and ready for anything:
big bugs, angry mummies, even the occasional damsel in distress. Eight years later, fatherhood
may have tempered his reckless nature, but not his
courage, or his left hook. And with his family's fate — and the civilized world — at stake, O'Connell will not shrink from a challenge.
In addition to creating an unforgettable character with Rick O'Connell in The Mummy, Fraser has built an impressive screen career with a diverse selection of roles. Most recently, he starred opposite Elizabeth Hurley and Frances O'Connor in Bedazzled, playing a lonely computer dweeb who sells his soul to Satan to win the girl of his dreams, and in Monkeybone as an illustrator who becomes possessed of his own cartoon alter ego.
He appeared in a classic Mountie Crimson Tunic alongside Sarah Jessica Parker and Alfred Molina in Dudley Do-Right, and opposite Alicia Silverstone in Blast From the Past. Fraser also played the dumb-luck hero title character in the hit comedy
George of the Jungle.
Fraser received critical acclaim for his subtle and intense performance alongside Sir Ian McKellen and Lynn Redgrave in Bill Condon's Academy AwardÂ® winning Gods and Monsters, and was named Best Actor at the 1997 Seattle Film Festival for his performance in Still Breathing. Fraser's credits also include the films Mrs. Winterbourne, Encino Man and School Ties, and television productions of Jonathan Tolin's play The Twilight of the Golds and Steven Soderberg's The Professional Man. Onstage, Fraser starred in John Patrick Shanley's
Four Dogs and a Bone at the Geffen Playhouse under the direction of Lawrence Kasdan.
Born in Indianapolis and raised in Europe and Canada, Fraser began studying acting at the age of 12. He received a B.F.A. in acting from the Actor's Conservatory, Cornish College of the Arts in Seattle.
Fraser is currently filming The Quiet American, starring Sir Michael Caine and directed by Phillip Noyce, in Vietnam and Australia. The film is based on Graham Greene's
