Claire Dearing in Jurassic World
What are your memories of the original movie?
It was nothing short of a profound experience for me. I just remember seeing the dinosaurs and thinking to myself, “I don’t even comprehend what my eyes are seeing. These are real!”
Jurassic World is a parable of technology running amok. How do you feel about the real- world parallels?
The advancement of technology is thrilling. But we also have to be careful that we don’t develop this myopic perspective where we don’t see these advancements in a larger context.
How did you end up wearing high heels for most of the movie?
When I was with the costume designer, I said, “Don’t you think that my character should have boots? We can make it sleek- looking, and then when I’m in the jungle, I’ll still have the boots?” He was like, “No, you’ll look way too protected.” I’m like, “That’s sort of what I’m looking for – protecting myself!” But it all worked out in the end. I learned a lot of ankle- strengthening exercises, and I ran through the jungle in heels. Richard Edwards
