| Last updated
An emotional Brendan Fraser has responded to a viral TikTok video that showed him 'choking up' after a fan said everyone was 'rooting' for him. He's now said he 'wasn't aware there was that much support'. Watch his latest comments below:
The 53-year-old was talking at FANEXPO Boston last month and the footage from their YouTube channel shows Fraser's response when asked about the viral post from last year.
For those unaware, the TikTok shows Fraser getting a little teary after a fan told him how many people supported him.
Fraser was asked by an eager fan at the event in February: "Do you ever get like 'this is kind of weird' or like you know people are kind of taking it too far or do you just take it, you know?"
Brendan replied: "I'll answer your question. Just recently - and I'm not real big on social media, forgive me for that I'm a luddite apart from the Zelda thing - I did a like a meet and greet at a con and it went on to TikTok and I had a nice little chat with this lovely woman called Lindley, I learned her name.
"It was big I'm told."
"You were kind of choking up," the fan intervenes.
Brendan adds: "Yeah I backed into that, I was like I don't know I felt like, she was so sincere.
"I appreciate it and it let me know that I guess I just wasn't aware that there's that much support.
"I appreciate it very very much."
The TikTok video went viral following news Fraser had been cast alongside Leonardo DiCaprio and Robert DeNiro in Martin Scorsese's forthcoming movie Killers of the Flower Moon.
TikToker Lindley (@littlelottiecosplay) spoke to the star via GalaxyCon Live, for just two minutes.
In the footage of their exchange, Fraser tells her: "I'm going to work with Scorsese and Leo and Bob DeNiro."
Lindley - who had dressed up as Evie from The Mummy for the occasion - congratulates him, saying the news is 'so exciting'.
Fraser replies: "Thank you, I think I might be sick! A little anxious. I mean, it's going to be fun, but I'm like [pretends to chew fingernails]."
Lindley then says: "You've got this. You've got this. Just know that the internet is so behind you. We're so supportive. There are so many people out there who love you, and we're rooting for you. And we can't wait to see what you do next."
Fraser smiles, before coyly taking a swig of water as he seemingly chokes up.
"Shucks, ma'am," he says, rearranging his hat.
Although a release date hasn't been set, we're expecting Killers of the Flower Moon to come out some time in 2022.
