Bryce Dallas Howard’s performance in the Jurassic Park and Star Wars series has gotten her a lot of attention recently. As the oldest daughter of famed filmmaker and one-time actor Ron Howard, she is possibly the most well-known of a new generation of so-called Nepotism Babies.
Colin Trevorrow co-wrote (with Emily Carmichael) and directed “Dominion,” which sees Isla Nublar devastated and dinosaurs hesitantly coexisting with humans after a cataclysmic event threatens all life on Earth. In the last edition of the “Jurassic World” franchise, “Jurassic World Dominion,” Bryce Dallas makes her big-screen comeback as Claire Dearing, co-protagonist of the last three “Jurassic World” films.
Bryce Dallas Howard Takes a Break from Acting
Howard is transferring her focus to producing and directing movies with her own firm, Nine Muses Entertainment, after spending time away from her family to wrap off the “Jurassic World” franchise and filming a role in Matthew Vaughn’s next Apple spy thriller Argylle. Howard, 41, gives herself the same counsel she provides to the film students she teaches at her alma mater, NYU, as she continues to grow her multi-hyphenate career on both sides of the camera. “Now,” she says, “it is time to own it.”
“I think seeing a person who is many things, even though the world may not define them as such, has given me permission to explore many things. Now, being someone who’s a spouse and a parent, I have a slightly different perspective of it, because, oh my gosh, that’s the hardest thing that I do and the most important. But my mom encouraged me to be very front-footed with my career. I only really recently started identifying more as a multihyphenate, more as a director, and I think it was when I was started teaching at NYU. Because I realized if I didn’t own it, my students wouldn’t. And we’re only that if we declare it ourselves.”

The final film in the new “Jurassic Park” trilogy has the lowest rating of the six films in the franchise, with a 31% rating from 274 reviews on the review aggregator Rotten Tomatoes. While the Universal picture is predicted to generate roughly $125 million in the United States and Canada this weekend, the film’s ultimate profit might be hampered in the following weeks due to weak audience response.
