Jurassic Park: The children of the saga have grown up well!

They do not appear in the lyrics to “Jurassic World: the world after”, but they have marked the saga of dinosaurs over the episodes since 1993. Back to the kids in the franchise and their journey after leaving the park.

Owen Grady (Chris Pratt), Claire Dearing (Bryce Dallas Howard), Alan Grant (Sam Neill), Ellie Sattler (Laura Dern), Ian Malcolm (Jeff Goldblum): the reunion of Jurassic World: the world after has taken place between adults without inviting “Jurassic Kids” to the end of the saga. Only Isabella Sermon, who portrays a character introduced in Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom and is now at the center of the narrative and genetic problems of the last opus, thus stands out from the gigantotosaurus and other giant locusts.

Ariana Richards at the premiere of “Jurassic World 3” in Los Angeles on June 6, 2022

While Ariana Richards, the unforgettable Lex Murphy from Jurassic Park (ah, the jello scene …), paraded on the red carpet for the premiere of Jurassic World 3 a few days ago, let’s highlight the actors who have faced the dinosaurs since 1993. Their Hollywood careers did not necessarily explode afterwards, but their misfortunes (and their cries) allowed (and will allow) millions of young spectators to identify themselves with their lost characters on Isla Nublar and Isla Sorna.

Rescued from the jaws Jurassic Park and presents the time of a short sequence at the beginning of the lost world, Ariana Richards (now 42 years old) did not tour much then.

After “grilling like toast” and escaping the clutches of velociraptors in the kitchens in Jurassic Parkplayed Joseph Mazzello with Meryl Streep in La Rivière sauvage, and under the direction of Richard Attenborough (John Hammond in Jurassic Park) in Les Ombres du Coeur, before reappearing in The lost world time for a cameo. Rarely on the screens then, the actor, now 38, still found Spielberg for the series Brothers in Arms, and was recently seen in the casting of Bohemian Rhapsody, where he plays the bassist in the group Queen, and season 3 of American Crime Story.

Blake Michael Bryan (Charlie, Jurassic Park III)

Remember: it was he who almost like a baby gave the nickname Alan Grant “Dinosaur Man” in Jurassic Park III … and took the phone to save the expedition, threatened by spinosaurus. Blake Michael Bryan’s Hollywood career – revealed in The Young and the Restless, where he played Noah Newman in 15 episodes – was very short, as he only appeared briefly in two films after his small role with the dinosaurs, in 2004 and then 2009.

After starring in The Nice Guys and the latest Insidious, could he soon reappear in the Marvel Cinematic Universe and even be offered a place in what some rumors already call “Young Avengers?”? Meanwhile, 20 years old, he continues his career between series and independent films.
