English actor Rafe Spall has been connected to the Jurassic World Sequel since last November, but very little is known about what type of role he will play in the new film. While we still don’t know really anything about his character, he took some time to talk to BT about his busy schedule filming the sequel and starring in the National Theatre’s production of Hedda Gabler which ends its run next week.
Spall, who works on the Jurassic World sequel during the day and performs at his show in the evenings is excited to be working with director JA Bayona and returning Jurassic actors Bryce Dallas Howard and Chris Pratt.
“It’s being directed by JA Bayona, who is a genuine auteur, so to have someone like that putting his own mark on it is extremely exciting, it’s a bit like when (Alfonso) Cuaron did a Harry Potter, a brilliant film-maker with their own visions coming on to a franchise.”
“It’s a great part and Bryce Dallas Howard and Chris Pratt are extremely talented and charming people so I’m really enjoying it.”
He also goes on to say how one of the best parts of working on a Jurassic film is being able to share the films with his children.
“That is part of the power of Jurassic Park, kids love dinosaurs and they have since time immemorial so I’m really excited to be in something they will be so pumped about.”
