Claire Dear­ing in Juras­sic World

SFX: The Sci-Fi and Fantasy Magazine - - Reviews -

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
