Fans of Ke Huy Quan and Brendan Fraser rejoice over their hug reunion
Brendan Fraser and Ke Huy Quan, who starred in Everything Everywhere All at Once, reunited at the Critics’ Choice Awards.
To congratulate Fraser on winning Best Actor for his role in The Whale, Quan gave him a big hug. Quan won Best Supporting Actor at the 2023 Critics Choice Awards for his performance in Everything Everywhere All at Once. The final time Quan and Fraser saw each other was when they co-starred in the 1992 teen comedy Encino Man.
Numerous fans expressed their appreciation for the moving moment that occurred during the actors’ reunion. @NovGirl91 pointed out that Quan and Fraser were mistreated by Hollywood “terribly in different ways.” In 2018, Fraser recalled feeling as though the film industry had “blacklisted” him for speaking out about his allegations of sexual assault against Philip Berk, the former president of the Hollywood Foreign Press Association. Fans have since dubbed Fraser’s comeback to acting as The Whale and DC Universe’s Doom Patrol the “Brenaissance.”
Regarding Quan, he made his acting debut in the 1984 film Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom as the comedic sidekick of Indy, Short Round. Quan was cast in the role of Richard “Data” Wang in The Goonies a year later by Steven Spielberg. The 51-year-old actor is still on Spielberg’s Christmas wish list today. Quan became the second Asian-American actor to win Best Supporting Actor at the Golden Globes in 2023, joining Haing S. Igor for 1985’s The Killing Fields. Quan graciously thanked Spielberg in his speech for providing him with his first job in the Temple of Doom.
