Why Jurassic World's Bryce Dallas Howard Loves Working With Judy Greer

With the release of "Jurassic World Dominion," it makes sense that the cast and crew would reflect on their experiences working on both "Dominion" and the other entries in this beloved franchise. And how could they not, as "Dominion" not only marks the final installment of the "Jurassic World" trilogy that began in 2015 but will also be closing out the entirety of the "Jurassic" saga that began with Steven Spielberg's 1993 game-changing blockbuster, "Jurassic Park." The franchise has had its highs and lows, but through it all, audiences have come roaring back to each entry to see the ever-expanding clash between the prehistoric and modern world.

One of the "World" trilogy's most enduring faces has been Bryce Dallas Howard. In the series, Howard stars as former Jurassic World founder Claire Dearing. Starting off as a more distant business manager in the first "Jurassic World," Claire develops throughout the trilogy to become an avid protector of the dinosaurs alongside Chris Pratt's Owen Grady. Ready and willing to roll up her sleeves, Claire does whatever's necessary to protect the dinosaurs from danger and exploitation. Howard's passion for the role and the franchise as a whole has evolved alongside her character, with her even suggesting ideas for "Dominion" while working on the other films (via Collider). This love extends to many of her co-stars, including Judy Greer, who she starred alongside in the first film. Turns out, their history goes way back.

Bryce Dallas Howard and Judy Greer's ongoing sisterhood

In a recent interview with Collider, the outlet asked if Bryce Dallas Howard believes that Claire would keep in touch with Karen, her sister from the first "Jurassic World," played by Judy Greer. Howard responded excitedly, "Yeah, yeah, yeah, definitely...I think Claire has learned the value of family after the first 'Jurassic World'." 

In the film, Greer plays Karen Mitchell, the busy mother of the film's two main child protagonists, Gray (Ty Simpkins) and Zach Mitchell (Nick Robinson). Karen sends her sons to visit the theme park while handling business, with the intention that they would be taken care of by Claire. When Karen finds out that her kids are out by themselves in the park, she tries guilting Claire to spend time with them by quoting corny lines from their mother, giving the sisters a fun bit of banter with one another.

This is not the first time that Howard and Greer have starred alongside one another. It isn't even the first time they've been together as sisters. As Howard mentioned in her Collider interview, "I love Judy Greer, we played sisters in my first movie I did called 'The Village' and so to get to play sisters again was just such a blast." In the star-studded 2004 Oscar-nominated film by M. Night Shyamalan, Howard stars as the blind Ivy Elizabeth Walker, with Greer portraying her sister Kitty Walker.

It's clear that Howard and Greer have a good bit of chemistry, as playing sisters more than once would likely do. And we'd like to hope that somewhere in "Jurassic World Dominion," Claire is texting Karen about how excited she is to finally meet Alan Grant (Sam Neill) and Ellie Sattler (Laura Dern).
