Actress Daniella Pineda plays a paleo-veterinarian, Dr Zia Rodriguez, who makes the dangerous journey to Isla Nublar in the new dino sequel. Daniella reveals online that her character was going to be shown as a lesbian, but in the final version of the movie her sexuality was not revealed. Pineda describes the scene as featuring her and Owen (played by Chris Pratt) driving in a military vehicle together alongside a bunch of mercenaries to evacuate dinosaurs before the area is destroyed by the volcano. Zia confesses Owen that if she was attracted to men, though she is not, it would be somebody like him. Pineda joked about how she was “looking at Chris Pratt, the hottest guy in the world, and I’m like, ‘It would gross me out, but I guess I would do it!’ It was also cool because it was a little insight into my character. But they cut it.” The original scene was too long, so this short episode was erased. “Originally the cut was two hours and 40 minutes, and they were like, ‘This is too long,’” the actress told Yahoo, adding that the producers felt the scene wasn’t “relevant to the story, but it was a little glimmer into who she is.”
