Brendan Fraser's 'Batgirl' costar said the 'Mummy' actor is 'such a huge teddy bear'
- "Batgirl" star Leslie Grace called costar Brendan Fraser a "huge teddy bear" in a new interview.
- "He is one of the nicest people that I've ever met," Grace said of Fraser, who plays villain Firefly.
Brendan Fraser plays the villain in the upcoming HBO Max film adaptation of "Batgirl," but his costar Leslie Grace said the "Mummy" actor was nothing but nice.
"It was an incredible learning experience to be on set with also action veterans like Brendan Fraser, and soak up it all up," Grace said in a recent interview with Variety. "It was so hard because he's our villain and I'm not supposed to like him but he's such a huge teddy bear."
"He is one of the nicest people that I've ever met," Grace added.
The actress, who plays Barbara Gordon (aka Batgirl) in the upcoming film, said that Fraser's past acting experience took their fight sequences to a whole other level.
"You can't improvise that kind of experience. There's some crazy stuff that happens," Grace teased to Variety.
Fraser stars as the villain Firefly in "Batgirl," which also features JK Simmons as Commissioner Gordon, Barbara's dad, and Michael Keaton reprising his role as Batman.
Fraser has been enjoying something of a renaissance in recent years. Known for his roles in '90s blockbusters like "The Mummy" and "George of the Jungle," the actor has kept a lower profile in recent years, appearing on shows such as "The Affair" and "Doom Patrol" and in Steven Soderbergh's crime thriller "No Sudden Move."
