I thought I was to cry would burst.”
Fraser lifted his wife directly in but did not further his mouth about his incident out of shame and fear that his career would be damaged. “I was depressed. I blamed myself and felt miserable,” said Fraser, who was still sat back allowing the eventually consequences for his career, which on the back burner. The actor says now, still a lot to be afraid of the consequences by his story.
