Fraser is currently making the rounds on the awards circuit after The Whale debuted in theaters last month after months of anticipation from fans and critics.
It is based on the play of the same name by Samuel D. Hunter, and the playwright also wrote the screenplay for the film.
In addition to Fraser and Chau, the film’s cast included impressive performances from Sadie Sink and Ty Simpkins.
The feature centers on a reclusive English teacher (Fraser) who tries to mend a relationship with his daughter (Sink).

The film’s development wasn’t officially announced until 2021, when its director and star signed on to work on the project.
Physical production of the feature film took place in New York State the same year.
The Whale had its world premiere at the 79th Venice International Film Festival, which took place last September, before it was released to the public last month.
The film was met with a mixed response from critics, although Fraser, Sink and Chau’s performances were praised by many.

The film was also a moderate success at the box office, as it grossed nearly $14 million on a $3 million budget, according to Box Office Mojo.
Fraser has since been nominated for numerous Best Actor awards for his work on The Whale, and he won the accolade at the Critics Choice Movie Awards held recently.
Earlier this week, it was announced that the hugely famous performer had been set up for the Best Actor Oscar.
He is expected to face Colin Farrell, Bill Nighy, Paul Mescal and Austin Butler for the accolade, which will be awarded on March 12.
