Even if you haven’t seen Jurassic Park, it is most definitely on your “to watch” list, right? And if it’s not, then it should be. Although on the surface it seems like nothing more than one of your average “large creatures wreaking havoc” films, the core message runs much deeper. Rather than humans being the unassuming victims of a random attack, we are, in fact, at fault for resurrecting something that was, as becomes increasingly obvious, extinct for a reason. Alongside large vehicles being effortlessly pushed over and screaming businessmen being scooped up and swallowed whole, the viewer is also led to consider the true consequence of man playing God.
It can be tempting to think of the ground-breaking animatronic T-Rex as the star of the film, but the human beings involved made a more than valuable contribution. From the intense passion of Dr. Alan Grant to the blatant recklessness of John Hammond, the cast of Jurassic Park brings a perfect blend of humour, knowledge, drama, and action to an already innovative and critically acclaimed film.
Since then, this star studded group of people has continued to remain just that. Through high profile film roles, television appearances, and even breathtaking artwork, here is what the cast of Jurassic Park were able to achieve after escaping with all their limbs intact.

Immediately following Jurassic Park, Bob Peck appeared in an episode of The Young Indiana Jones Chronicles. In 1994, he portrayed Italian Romantic composer Giuseppe Verdi in the biographical television film Verdi. He was then featured in various films and shows such as Hard Times (1994), Mielisairas, Surviving Picasso, Smilla’s Sense of Snow (1996), FairyTale: A True Story, The Opium War, (1997), and The Scold’s Bridle (1998). In April 1999, after a five-year battle with an undisclosed type of cancer, Peck tragically passed away at only fifty-three years old. The 2000 stop-motion animated film The Miracle Maker, in which his voice was used posthumously, was dedicated to his memory.
