‘It Only Took Like 30 years’: Jurassic World Star Bryce Dallas Howard Says Hollywood is Finally Recognizing Her Martial Arts Background

Bryce Dallas Howard’s portrayal of Gwen Stacy in Spider-Man 3 was pretty meek, but it’s been more than a decade since she played a role like that, and now she’s gone on to play a much bolder character than Gwen Stacy. The 41-year-old actress plays Claire Dearing in the highly successful Jurassic Park movies since 2015, and she’s slaying in all of them.

Howard’s acting skills aren’t the only field of practice that she’s well-versed in, though. The actress’ transition in those three Jurassic Park movies has been nothing short of spectacular, as her character goes from being a white-collar employee at a dinosaur park to a martial arts mom, and she puts a big emphasis on the martial arts part.

Here’s what Bryce Dallas Howard has to about her expertise in martial arts, and wanting to be recruited for more roles to put that skill to use-

“I would love to, yes. I just finished filming a Matthew Vaughn film that had a tremendous amount of action. I was very, very, very excited about that because I have a background in martial arts. So I was like, ‘Okay, it only took like 30 years, but it’s fine. I’m throwing a punch!'”

We’d love to see her getting more action screen time, a few kicks, and punches here and there.

Claire Dearing’s Character is Getting More And More Interesting

Claire Dearing’s character development over the course of the three new Jurassic World movies was done in the blink of an eye. It also turns out that her character was supposed to get more into the action parts of the movie as the story progressed, and that was the original plan!

During the very same interview, Howard revealed that Dearing was bound to turn into the martial arts mom that she is in the Jurassic World Dominion, saying that it was planned right from the start-

“It was actually the plan from the beginning, to be honest. [Director] Colin [Trevorrow] picked up that I’m very into doing physically challenging things, so I can imagine he realized early that there weren’t going to be limitations on his imagination in that regard and that I would be game for anything.”

We surely wouldn’t have expected Dearing to get that aggressive later on, considering how held back she was in Jurassic World.

Jurassic World Dominion will be up for streaming on the Peacock streaming website from September 2, it’s a bit of a wait.
