Actor Brendan Fraser, who was in Oklahoma last year shooting scenes for Martin Scorsese’s upcoming “Killers of the Flower Moon,” was asked about the film while appearing at Fan Expo Dallas, a convention major pop culture event at the Kay Bailey Hutchison Convention Center in downtown Dallas.

During a Saturday Q&A, Fraser was asked how he felt about being in a project with as much history and significance as “Killers of the Flower Moon,” which was based on David Grann’s best-selling book.

“I was unaware of the story,” Fraser said. “It’s a great book. Check it out if you want a good summer read.

Regarding the movie, Fraser politely suggested that he didn’t want to say things about a movie he hasn’t seen yet,

“In deference to Mr. Scorsese, I don’t know what I’m talking about,” he said. “But the subject, I’m glad to see it coming to light now. It’s important.”

Fraser’s response drew applause.

Grann’s book, based on true events, is set in 1920s Oklahoma and depicts the serial murder of members of the oil-rich Osage nation, a series of brutal crimes known as the Reign of Terror.

“Killers of the Flower Moon” features Oscar winners Robert De Niro and Leonardo DiCaprio. Fraser plays WS Hamilton in the film, which was filmed in Pawhuska, Tulsa and other Oklahoma locations.

Fan Expo Dallas began Friday and continues through Sunday. Fraser is among the convention’s most popular celebrity guests. His panel, free with the price of admission, drew such a large crowd that many convention attendees stood behind a large, mostly full seating area to listen to him answer questions. Autograph lines were always long for Fraser on Saturday.
