Speaking at the IMAX exclusive Q&A panel that aired before select screenings of “Jurassic World Dominion” on June 9, 2022, Bryce Dallas Howard stated she has no plans to give up acting completely, even as she pursues more opportunities to direct. The panel, which was hosted at New York’s AMC Lincoln Square and live-streamed at various IMAX theaters, featured “Jurassic World Dominion” actors BryceDallas Howard, Jeff Goldblum, and DeWanda Wise, as well as screenwriter Emily Carmichael and director and writer Colin Trevorrow.
During the Q&A, Bryce Dallas Howard was asked about her future as a director, and if she plans to continue acting. She answered emphatically that ideally she wanted to be able to do both:
“What’s so wonderful about getting to be an actor who’s interested in directing … is that you get to see a lot of other directors work. And that’s something that my dad — he started off as an actor … — when he started directing he stopped acting and he said that’s the thing he misses the most, getting to see how different directors solve problems.
“…The more you learn, the more you understand, but the more you’re enlightened by each filmmaker that you get to encounter. And so that’s why I hope to get to continue to direct but I also hope to get to continue to act — because it’s the best way to learn.”
