Here's what the kids from the original Jurassic Park look like now

They're in their thirties, and chose different career paths...

By Natasha Preskey

The fourth film in the Jurassic Park series, Jurassic World, hit screens on Friday almost FOURTEEN years after the last instalment.

Remember those two cute kids from the original? Joseph Mazzello and Ariana Richards played siblings Tim and Lex Murphy back in the day. They were 9 and 13 when the film came out.

Well, Joseph is now 31. Here he is in The Social Network back in 2010 playing Dustin Moskovitz, one of the co-founders of Facebook (he's the guy between Andrew Garfield and Jesse Eisenberg).

Joseph was also in 2010 HBO series, The Pacific. AND he has a FAN CLUB (or he did when this jazzy website was under construction).

As for Ariana, she's now 35 and she and her husband are expecting their first child. She's also a successful painter.

Here's a snap of Ariana earlier this month on The Morning Show.

The newest movie in the dinosaur series, Jurassic World, is set 22 years on from the first film but in the same location, where some bright spark thought it would be a great idea to build a dinosaur theme park... You can catch it in cinemas now.
