While the quality of Jurassic World as a film can absolutely be questioned, no one can deny that it was a financial success. Bryce Dallas Howard had a leading role in that movie as the character of Claire Dearing and she reprised her role in Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom. Bryce Dallas Howard is also set to star in the Elton John biopic Rocketman and, in an interview with Collider, she discussed both Jurassic World and Rocketman.
This is what Bryce Dallas Howard had to say about how much the Jurassic World film series means to her:
“I remember being 12 years old and going on opening weekend to watch Jurassic Park, and it just absolutely blew my mind, even though I was a kid who grew up on movie sets. I’ll never forget it. It was a real turning point for our industry, in terms of the kinds of stories that we could tell, because it looked like we were looking at real dinosaurs.”
“It was unbelievable! So, for me now, as an adult, to get to be a part of this is absolutely thrilling, but what’s more thrilling is that I’ve got kids who are the same age that I was when I saw Jurassic Park, and now they’re getting to experience this, all over again. It’s incredible! It’s an incredible adventure to be a part of.”
“It’s one of those jobs that any actor would have killed for an opportunity in, so you’re like, ‘Oh, my god, I’m so lucky!’ The success of the movies is not because of me. It’s a rare thing when you can be a part of a movie like that, where you don’t feel like the movie is gonna succeed or fail, based on your work or your performance. It’s about the dinosaurs.”
As I previously stated, Rocketman was another point of discussion and here is what Bryce Dallas Howard said about what appealed to her with this movie:
“First and foremost, the fact that Elton is involved and his husband, David Furnish, is everything. I loved getting to learn about him, and to immerse myself in his world and his music. It’s a classic musical. It’s so, so fun and transportive and wild. I’m just thrilled to be a part of it. It’s really exciting. Five minutes into the read-through, I turned to Dexter Fletcher, the director, and I went, ‘This is going to work!’”
