jurassic world fallen kingdom trailer

Did you have long hair before?

Yeah, I chopped all my hair off.  Yeah.  But there was just so many, it was such a privilege to be able to work with so many people and not have this finite idea instantly, but just make this character over time.  And even like very up to very recently there were new things thrown and added to my character.  Yeah.

Well can you talk a little bit about working with Justice and like and how, I mean, we’ve already touched on kind of what the dynamic is, but like working with him like as an actor.  From what I understand it’s like the chemistry between you two is like a pretty big, important part of the movie.  I think Colin actually told Peter that like you two are the secret sauce of the movie.


So can you talk a little bit about developing that and how that fits in the overall tone of what’s going on?

It’s cool, because we, Justice and I, had scenes in the movie, big scenes where it’s about us.  And we just had so much fun and like from the moment I met him at the table read, it’s so funny like we saw each other and it was like you.  And even Chris asked us, he was like, did you guys know each other before this?  I was like never met him.  But like just it was like oh you’re my little brother.  I understand this now.  And so what’s so fun about Justice is he’s so, he’s game for anything.  So I wouldn’t tell him what I was going to do to him.  I saw what JA was doing and any opportunity to fuck with Justice I’m definitely gonna do it.  And he loves it.  So…

Does he really though?

He really does.

Like deep in his heart, do you not see like the sadness he’s in?

Yeah.  Sometimes it’s just like, oh my character’s such a wuss. We, because I was messing with him and because it’s like that in real life, like it was, it didn’t feel like I was working with Justice.  In fact, we got in trouble a couple of times.  Well no, I take that back.  Justice got me in trouble by goofing off and because we’re so closely associated on set now, we basically got like a slap on the hand.  Like you guys need to buck up and focus.  Because it’s so easy to joke around.  But yeah, working with Justice was just like just a lot of fun.  And he gets comedy and he gets timing and we both have the same want for every scene, which is we just wanna make it as funny as we can.  That’s really important to both of us, so that’s what made this whole movie like a dream come true.  Like I got to check all my boxes and do everything that I wanted to do.  As far as like look like a badass and be taken seriously and do drama, but also like goof around.  And hopefully those goofy moments will make the movie.

Can you talk about how J.A. plays music on set sometimes?

Yeah.  That was the first time that I’ve ever encountered that on set.  And actually I recently watched some clips of Stanley Kubrick on the set of The Shining and he would also play music for, you know…

He’d play classical music, yeah.

Yeah.  And it’s really, really effective.  He’s like he gets to communicate exactly what he wants without really saying anything.  And I made a couple of requests.  It’s a little bit like a DJ situation sometimes where you can say, J.A., for this scene, for me, can you play this song?  And if it’s appropriate, he’ll play it.

Do you remember specifically what you asked him to play?

What I did?  Yes.  It was the end credits, “Unchained Melody” from Ghost.  Yeah.

Oh.  Hey, iconic.

Yeah.  It’s he plays sound effects, which I posted on Instagram, but he plays sound effects from previous movies.  From previous Jurassic Park movies.  Yeah.

And so like just as an actor how does that help you…?  Like I just wanna understand like when that happens, is it just something where you’re able to let go and not be conscious of trying to reach an emotional level?  ‘Cause he was telling me that specifically he did three different things with Bryce.  And that he did one where it was like happy music.  He did one where it was scary music and one that it was sad music.  And it was just on her face.  And having a reaction.  And just by virtue of playing that and having her do it like that changed her performance each time.

Totally.  It almost feels like a cheat.  It almost feels like there’s the music is making your job 75 percent easier.  Because music strikes such an emotion that you don’t have to find it within yourself, you’re just hearing it.  So actually it’s such an effective tool.  Like I really, really, I really like it.  I just wish now for the scenes where I have lines and sound won’t matter, I could play a song.  And I listen to music before a scene, so yeah, it’s very effective.

Well, we just got told to wrap it up.  So I’d like to say thank you.

Oh yeah, absolutely.  Thanks, guys.  It’s cool you got to talk to J.A.  Who else did you get to talk to?

We got Bryce, Chris, Justice and yeah, just lots of departments. We got to visit the creature shop. We got to pet Blue, which was really cool.

Oh cool.  That’s dope.  You know that thing costs as much as a Bentley to make?

No shit. Which one?

The full body one.  Yeah.

Well, it’s worth it. That was so sad.  Like I wanted, I almost wanted to cry because it was laying there.

I know.  Yeah, there’s it made acting with Blue like also very easy because the thing was so real.  It just felt like you were really with like your wounded dog at the vet.  You’re just like…fuck.

He’s hurt, help him.

Yeah.  I’m so sad.

She’s, ’cause it’s a girl.  I get corrected on that.


And I knew better.

Not that it, not that, I don’t know how much it changes a dinosaur’s behavior.  Female.  It looks like you’ll die either way.
