With cameras set to start rolling this March and with casting well underway, the sequel to Jurassic World is squaring up to be a monster hit, with director J.A. Bayona taking the helm and bringing on his cinematographer to help bring the movie to life.
As many expected, the period leading up to filming would be a quiet one, with only tidbits of information being released. Those working on the movie have their lips sealed shut, but returning actress Bryce Dallas Howard has expressed her excitement for the filming and for bringing her character, Claire Dearing, back in the sequel.
In an new interview with JoBlo, Bryce shared a little about her character’s transformation:
That’s part of the story, that’s part of the journey. She definitely went through a lot and is permanently changed because of that. But she is also who she is. Chris [Pratt] and I are already having a lot of fun with that. We’re in that stage right now of figuring out the backstory and talking through all those beats, like everything that happened in between. That’s always such a fun time. You’re like, ‘No, she did that?! No way, he couldn’t have!’ It’s really, really fun, and then you step into the present moment and it becomes alive.
While this – for the most part – is nothing new, it’s refreshing to learn that both actors are taking the time to truly figure out their character’s backstory, and share with one another just what Claire and Owen have been up to, post Jurassic World.
