The following interview was conducted by Courtney Howard:
Not only is child-actor Ty Simpkins an absolute pro, he’s managed to maintain his down-to-Earth persona picture perfectly – a tricky thing to do in show business. His projects have ranged from horror (Insidious, Insidious: Chapter 2), to superhero action (Iron Man 3), to sci-fi (War of the Worlds), to independent darling (Little Children). With director Colin Trevorrow’s Jurassic World, the affable actor blends elements from all of these roles in a popcorn flick of epic proportions. He plays Grey, a super smart pre-teen going through a tumultuous time – including, of course, facing off against dinosaurs.
At the film’s recent press day in Los Angeles, we spoke to Ty about everything from Jurassic World’s top secret nature, to being immortalized in Lego, to his next dream project – director Paul Haggis’ adaptation of The Ranger’s Apprentice.
