Laura's Jurassic wish

Laura Dern in Jurassic Park 

Laura Dern, who played Dr Ellie Sattler in the Jurassic Park film in 1993, says she would not mind returning to the franchise. 

The 51-year-old actress believes it would make sense to see Dr Sattler again as “it’s a good time for powerful, feminist characters to be honoured”. “I loved Ellie. I feel the proudest that a feminist, sassy, take-no-prisoners energy, who was integral to the storyline in saving the day, was honoured.

I’ve had so many kids — boys and girls — for a couple decades now, come up to me saying, ‘I became a palaeontologist because of you’. And I love that it’s boys and girls,” Dern told Deadline.
