The Oscar winner discusses why the apocalypse appears more possible than ever – and why men in power are the actual dinosaurs — 30 years after the original film.
Hawaii was battered by the greatest hurricane in its history on the final day of filming Jurassic Park in 1992. Laura Dern and her co-star Sam Neill stood on the beach, watching the waves rise.
Was he concerned, she inquired? “You know, Laura, I think we’re going to die,” he admitted. She chuckled.
That appears to be the case. Dern is a pro at optimism, as cheery and tenacious as a windsock. Yes, she believes that humanity are doomed, but what an exciting time to be living!
She beams from behind the mask (she’s presently filming a movie, so catching Covid would be costly).
Isn’t the Soil Association in the United Kingdom doing fantastic work? Isn’t plant-based protein’s popularity fantastic? “And look at the encouraging resurgence of bicycles!” ”
Dern, an actor with depth and bravery who also happens to be game and engaged, has yet to be criticized.
There will be none here. She is instantly persuasive. A hurricane of category four had no chance.
