Owen Grady in Juras­sic World

SFX - - Rated -

How did you pre­pare your­self to play some­one who works with di­nosaurs? We treated it very real. Dis­be­lief was sus­pended, di­nosaurs ex­isted and some­one was try­ing to train them. What tech­niques would you use? Who would you hire? I talked to peo­ple who train dol­phins, ca­nines and par­rots. There’s a lot of dif­fer­ent tech­niques used to train an­i­mals – you can shock them, you can give them a hug, and ev­ery­thing in be­tween.

How does Owen Grady com­pare to the goofier char­ac­ters you’ve played? There’s def­i­nitely a dark­ness to him. It’s there un­der­neath, but he still has fun. He also has a history with Claire, Bryce Dal­las Howard’s char­ac­ter. Some­thing went on be­tween them that we sort of ex­plore through the course of the movie. It’s rem­i­nis­cent of Ro­manc­ing The Stone or The African Queen. But es­sen­tially, he’s dark. He’s a com­bat vet­eran. He’s cho­sen to live on an is­land for a rea­son. He’s run­ning from some­thing, and a bit of an an­i­mal him­self.
