Original Jurassic Park Actors Will Feature Throughout New Film
Actor Sam Neill has revealed that he and fellow Jurassic Park co-stars Jeff Goldblum and Laura Dern will be featuring throughout the new movie, promising they'll be with us 'all the way'.
Often when celebrities make a cameo in a film, it's a blink-and-you-miss-it moment that proves to be pretty underwhelming. But that's not the case with the stars of the original Jurassic Park flick, it would seem.
Sam Neill, who starred in the 1993 film and its 2001 second sequel as palaeontologist Dr Alan Grant, revealed that his involvement in Jurassic World: Dominion would be much more than a brief appearance.
He said his character would be returning to the franchise for the first time since the third film, and would be joined by Jeff Goldblum and Laura Dern, who played Dr Ian Malcolm and Dr Ellie Sattler respectively.
Speaking to Yahoo while promoting new film Ride Like A Girl, Neill said: "We're all the way through the film, Jeff [Goldblum], and me, and Laura [Dern]."
He added that he 'probably won't be running quite as fast as I was 27 years ago!'
Production on Jurassic World: Dominion was put on hiatus on 13 March, 10 days before the UK officially went into lockdown - but is due to resume at Pinewood Studios on 6 July.

Neill said three of the film's stars are already in quarantine ahead of production restarting, and that he hoped to join them in 'about ten days'.
The film will no doubt be a huge hit with fans, given that it will feature big names from both the original movie and its Jurassic World reboot.
Rumours that the original cast would return have been circulating for some time, with Chris Pratt - who plays Owen Grady in the newer trilogy - telling Variety: "Man, I can't tell you anything, but I can tell you it's going to blow your mind. It's going to be the biggest and best yet. They spared no expense and they're bringing everybody back."
Last September, director Colin Trevorrow also brought Laura Dern out onto the stage for a Q&A at a screening of the first Jurassic World flick at the ArcLight Cinema in Hollywood, seemingly confirming her involvement.
