After nearly thirty years, fans still haven’t stopped loving the world of the dinosaur park, but the kids on that year’s adventure have all changed a lot.
June 1993, super product Jurassic Park directed by Steven Spielberg made the whole movie world shaken. For the first time on the big screen, a whole new world is opened. On the beautiful remote island of Isla Nubar, creatures that went extinct sixty-six million years ago have been revived under the power of science.

After his role as Lex Murphy in 1993, Richards went on to act in various films, both television and film, both in lead and supporting roles, but none of them resonated. She quickly found a passion for painting and proved herself in this field. Her paintings are mainly landscapes and people in an impressionist painting style.
Richards has enjoyed great success as a professional painter, winning numerous awards in oil painting competitions and having his work featured in art magazines. She is currently a member of many art associations in the US and still regularly updates her paintings on her personal instagram with more than 32k followers.
The painting Lady of the Dahlias helped Ariana Richards win the first prize of the National Professional Oil Painting Competition in 2005, organized by American Artist magazine.
Interview with newspaper Interview in 2011, Richards expressed: “I have a great passion for visual arts and oil painting. But if at some point, a suitable role comes along, I’m sure I’ll gladly accept it.”

Both Ariana Richards and Joseph Mazzello are still very proud when it comes to talking about Jurassic Park. Actor Mazzello shared with the Jurassic Outpost fan community in 2020 that:
“If there’s one thing that hasn’t changed in my life, it’s that my peers often tell me they’ve been to Jurassic Park four, five, six, seven times; and how familiar they are to me. I feel so warm and happy, knowing I can be part of something special in everyone’s life.”
