Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom was set to feature a lesbian character, new star Daniella Pineda has revealed. Pineda plays a paleo-veterinarian, Dr Zia Rodriguez, who makes the dangerous journey to Isla Nublar in the new dino sequel.
Joining the star-studded cast featuring Chris Pratt and Bryce Dallas Howard, Pineda revealed in a recent Yahoo Entertainment chat that her character was going to reveal that she was a lesbian. The scene would have happened quite early on in the film, the actress said in the interview.
Pineda describes the scene as featuring her and Owen (Pratt) driving in a military vehicle together alongside a bunch of mercenaries. They are on a rescue mission to Jurassic World to evacuate some of the dinosaurs before a volcano erupts.
