Fraser Heston


Fraser C. Heston began his film career in Hollywood in 1955, on the back lot at Paramount Studios playing the infant Moses in Cecil B. DeMille’s Ten Commandments. His father, Charlton Heston, of course portrayed the adult Moses, though Fraser has not forgiven him for taking first billing. Fraser wrote his first produced screenplay at age 21, The Mountain Men for Columbia Pictures. He has written, produced and/or directed numerous feature films, television movies, and documentaries, including Mother Lode, Treasure Island, Alaska, Needful Things,  Charlton Heston Presents the Bible,and most recently The Search for Michael Rockefeller. He is currently developing a documentary about his father called Charlton Heston: The Man in the Arena. Fraser lives in Los Angeles with his wife Marilyn, only a few miles from the back lot at Paramount.
