While appearing on the Collider Ladies Night, the actress went candid and spoke about the art of acting. She further admitted that she found herself in love with the movies due to a single actor’s performance only. The person in question was none other than Brendan Fraser in The Mummy (1999).

“Before Girl, Interrupted, the movie that I think I really fell in love with and [made me] want to act, which is crazy, is The Mummy. I loved The Mummy with Brendan Fraser who I’m so happy for what’s happening in his career right now, I have to say because he was my first crush. But I would watch that every morning and I remember thinking, wow, Rachel Weisz is not from this earth.”

The career reference that Taylor Russell talks about is Brendan Fraser’s upcoming movie The Whale. The movie stars Fraser along with Sadie Sink (from Stranger Things fame) and will feature Brendan Fraser on the theater screens after a very long time.
