Bryce Dallas Howard is a big hit as the workaholic park manager Claire Dearing in Colin Trevorrow's "Jurassic World" film, and the actress is now discussing about her character's survival in the film and how she somewhat wishes that Claire would have met her untimely demise just like the other characters.

The first female death in the entire "Jurassic Park" franchise actually went to the chaperone of Claire's nephews Zara (played by Katie McGrath).

It was a landmark cinematic death in its own right, Howard told Cinema Blend, but it was undeniably terrifying to watch, since Zara gets picked up by a flying Pteranodon then dropped in a giant water tank.

People who thought that she would be able to swim out to safety after that were wrong, since she was once again picked up by the nasty Pteranodon, which then gets chomped by the huge water dinosaur Mosasaurus.

"It's the first female death by dinosaur in the 'Jurassic' franchise, and that one was a brutal death, wasn't it? She was tortured. Okay, so she was a little neglectful!" Howard said, referring to the time Zara let her concentration wander off from Claire's nephews to her phone.

The actress does not want to encounter the same gruesome death should it be time for her character to bite the dust though, and prefers a shocking yet quick death compared to the one encountered by Zara.

"Oh, I mean it's just, there's nothing better than a T-Rex - very quick death," she said. "Velociraptor seems far more gruesome."

Witnessing the deaths in "Jurassic World" might be a terrifying cinematic experience, but Howard believes that it was so masterfully done that people would end up appreciating it. That is exactly how she reacted when she saw the movie in finality for the very first time.

"My friend Eric Edelstein plays that first dude who gets like eaten by the Indominus Rex, and Eric and I have been friends for years and years and years... and I was always so sad. I was like, 'Oh, he's going to get eaten, I hate this, I hate this,'" she said.

But Howard said she should not have feared in the first place, since things turned out great. "And then when I saw the movie, and you know that moment where he just like looks over and then he gets eaten? I was like, 'Oh my God! That's amazing!'"
