Bryce Dallas Howard has steadily grown as an actress, melding a string of side roles in big films with lead parts in minor ones. However her latest success, Jurassic World, has ripped through box office figures and could see her placed among the most sought-after actresses around. The 34-year-old starred alongside Chris Pratt in the fourth entry to the Jurassic Park series, though the film is good enough to banish the mediocre middle two instalments, and edge it closer to the all-conquering original. Jurassic World is enjoying huge commercial success and recorded the most successful opening weekend in cinema history, raking in $511 million (£328 million) globally in that time. It's a roaring success for Universal, and for Howard as she looks to secure further lead blockbuster roles. She has featured in The Village (2004), Spider Man 3 (2007) as Peter Parker's love interest Gwen Stacy, Terminator Salvation (2009) and 50/50 (2011) alongside Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Seth Rogen and Anna Kendrick, with all of them leading up to Jurassic World. Howard will star in a remake of the 1977 Disney musical Pete's Dragon along with Karl Urban of Lord of the Rings fame, and the classic actor Robert Redford. So with Howard surely set for the screen more often, here are 10 things you may not know about her.
