Jurassic Park's child stars unrecognisable as they reunite thirty years after hit film | The Sun

JURASSIC Park's original child stars have reunited for the first time in 30 years.

Ariana Richards, 43, and Joe Mazzello, 39, famously played siblings Lex and Tim Murphy in the legendary 1993 dinosaur flick, alongside Sam Neill, Laura Dern and Jeff Goldblum.

And they couldn't have looked happier to see each other again as they posed for pictures at an event in the US.

Standing in front of a picture of a young Steven Spielberg on a film set wearing an Indiana Jones: Raiders Of The Lost Ark hat, the pair looked great.

Ariana's long blonde locks fell over the shoulders of her green bomber jacket, while Joe looked smart in a black jacket and T-shirt.

Sharing the snaps on Instagram, Ariana wrote: "Guess who I ran into this week?

"It was incredible to see you again after all these years, Joe (@joe_mazzello)! Thank you so much @amblin @universalpictures for creating this Legacy family so many years ago."

Joe also posted the pics for his half a million followers and wrote: "So this happened. Haven’t seen this lovely lady since she was a foot taller than me. And a big thank you to the guy behind us for bringing us together all those years ago."

Their followers loved the blast of nostalgia.

One commented: "Can’t believe the movie is already 30 years old. I remember seeing it in the theater with my mom. You guys were great in it."

Another said: "This melts my heart."

Others were annoyed the pair hadn't reprised their roles in the recent franchise reboots.

Ariana is now a full time painter based in Oregon and has focused on her art career for much of her adult life.

The dino star married her husband Mark Bolton in 2013 and gave birth to a daughter, now seven, in 2015.

Her other acting credits include 1997 sequel, The Lost World: Jurassic Park, and a couple of low budget horrors, including direct-to-video flick Tremors 3 and TV movie, Battledogs.

New Yorker Joe was reportedly granted a place on the Cinematic Arts course at the University of Southern California back in 2001 following a glittering recommendation from none other than Steven Spielberg.

He joked that he paid for his tuition using the money he'd made from a brief appearance in the 1997 sequel of the film.

After graduating, Joe didn't stop acting and went on to land some incredible roles.

He starred in an episode of CSI in 2003, named as Justin Lamond, and was cast as Scott in the 2004 teen horror movie, The Hollow.

A few TV and film roles followed, but one of his biggest credits to date is in The Social Network in 2010.

Joe played the character of Dustin Moskovitz, the man who co-founded Facebook alongside the film's lead character, Mark Zuckerberg.

If you watched the Freddie Mercury biopic, Bohemian Rhapsody, in 2018, you might've also seen Joe acting alongside Rami Malek.
