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.
