One of the most talked-about performances of the year is Brendan Fraser’s comeback in The Whale, which was released last week.

The life of Charlie, a 600-pound English teacher who lives in a house, is shown in the Darren Aronofsky-directed movie. Charlie tries to mend his relationship with his estranged daughter while teaching digitally and hiding his camera.

Fraser put on weight for the part, but prosthetics were necessary to complete his startling visual metamorphosis and accurately capture the character. In a recent interview with Variety, Fraser and prosthetics makeup artist Adrien Morot discussed The Whale’s remarkable transformation.

Morot revealed that he reduced the application process to four hours by using 3D printing technology to print the outfit. The improvements made sure that shooting time was not much impacted, but Brendan Fraser found it to be quite challenging because of the high heat he had to endure while donning the prosthetic outfit. In addition to having a cooling system for racecar drivers, Fraser needed five big bags of ice every day merely to get the filming done. “Those large bags you buy at gas stations,” the man said. According to Adrien Morot, I believe we went through four or five each day.

Fraser described the beginning of the 2021 early winter filming of The Whale. with an entrance exam that took six hours to complete. I had to try on the gear to feel how it felt in my hands. Charlie’s limited mobility forced me to learn how to ambulate. It provided us with a wealth of information on what was feasible, what would function, and what wasn’t.
