Laura Dern and Jurassic ParkEdit
Laura Dern liked dinosaurs before the movie. "I love dinosaurs 'cause I thought they were amazing and I knew a few of the names, the ones I loved. I loved the pterodactyls, I loved brachiosaurus and... the sweet ones. I wasn't into the T. rex."
Laura Dern was chosen by Steven Spielberg to portray Dr. Ellie Sattler because she was a very good and honest actor. The role of Ellie Sattler was offered to a lot of actresses. Juliette Binoche was offered the role but she turned it down in order to make Three Colors: Blue. Robin Wright, Jodie Foster, Sigourney Weaver, Michelle Pfeiffer, Ally Sheedy, Geena Davis, Daryl Hannah, Jennifer Grey, Kelly McGillis, Jamie Lee Curtis, Julia Roberts, Linda Hamilton, Sarah Jessica Parker, Bridget Fonda, Joan Cusack, Laura Linney, Helen Hunt, Gwyneth Paltrow and Debra Winger were all considered for the role of Dr. Ellie Sattler.
Because Jurassic Park had popularised dinosaurs the surnames of its main actors were used to make the species name of the Tianchisaurus genus. The species name has become nedegoapeferima, in which the part de are the first two letters of Dern.
Jurassic Park IIIEdit
Laura Dern later played a minor role in Jurassic Park III, returning at the beginning of the film and near the end.
In 2007 Laura Dern was rumoured to appear in Jurassic Park IV. However, that film was never made.
