If you weren’t a Brendan Fraser fan before (if not, what was wrong with you?), you will be now after watching his reaction in this video.

TikTok cosplayer @LittleLottieCosplay recently held a virtual meet-and-greet with Fraser (dressed as a character from his film, The Mummy) that spawned one clip that has since gone viral with more than 1 million views and counting.

At the start of the TikTok, Fraser is in the middle of dishing about his latest project, the Martin Scorsese Western epic Killers of the Flower Moon.

“I’m going to work with Scorsese and Leo (DiCaprio) and Bob De Niro.” he says, adding, “I’m a little anxious,” as he mimes gnawing on his fingernails nervously.

The fan was quick to assure Fraser that he’s “got this” though.

“The internet is so behind you! We’re so supportive,” she says. “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.”

In response, Fraser smiles and takes a sip of water, seemingly taking a moment to collect his thoughts. Appearing to choke up, Fraser tips the cowboy hat he’s wearing and says, “Shucks, ma’am.”

The video has been viewed more than 1.6 million times on TikTok. Lindley has also posted the clip to her personal Instagram account. Describing what the experience meant to her, she says in the caption, “Thank you @galaxyconlive for making this dream come true. THE MUMMY has been such a huge part of my life, so being able to meet Brendan Fraser is a memory I will treasure forever.”

Lindley adds: “And if anyone needs proof that this man is the purest of souls, here it is! He came ready with a rose, a hat-change, and as soon as he saw what I was wearing, he said ‘Evie, the years have been good to you!’ Just the sweetest man, and pardon my awkwardness, but I wanted to let him know how much the internet loves him, in case he was not already aware.”
