Bryce Dallas Howard has a laugh that should be heard to be appreciated. It’s hearty and genuine — an infectious burst of gusto that happens when she gets excited about something, such as acting, which, surprisingly enough, is not something that all actors enjoy talking about. But in Howard’s case she does.
Over the course of a couple of phone chats — one interrupted by a dead cell phone battery — one can hear the earnest joy in her voice, usually followed by that laughter, when talking about her journey from M. Night Shyamalan’s The Village, her feature film debut, to the massive success of Jurassic World despite her character’s penchant for running in heels from dinosaurs and, most recently, her 2017 Screen Actors Guild Award-nominated performance in an episode of Netflix’s Black Mirror.
“Maybe this is a little corny, but I’m a third-generation actor, so it’s awesome to be recognized in that way,” Howard tells ET about why being nominated for a SAG Award is so particularly special.
