She also cried on the way home and said her costar BD Wong, witnessed her in floods of tears.

"BD Wong and I flew back together and he apparently texted [director] Colin [Trevorrow] when he landed and he said, 'Our leading lady cried the entire plane ride,' which is true."

"It's very sad to say goodbye to something so wonderful. But also, I'm very excited for the folks who will carry the Jurassic saga forward, you know? It will be with a largely different cast and all of that, and that's something that is to be celebrated.

"I know as a fan what I want to see moving forward, and I hope it comes to fruition, I really do."
