PART 03 of 04.
Derrick Davis recently had conversations with three fans who were lucky enough to have been extras, background cast members, in the massive New Orleans sets of 'Jurassic World': Anthony Feliciano, Bo Monarch, and Brent Kappel. Their discussions were edited into a 4-part video series that dives into the memories of their incredible experiences on the impressive sets. Not only do we get to hear their fun stories, but we also get to see some rare behind the scenes photos, video footage, and other cool imagery that helps bring us along on their thrilling ride.
PART THREE: Main Street
For the third segment, Brent details the stunning Main Street set that was built next to an abandoned Six Flags amusement park. He gives us detailed descriptions of many Main Street locations, including the mostly-unseen Jurassic Traders Gift Shop, and the shock of Katie McGrath (who played Zara) performing some of her insane stunts on set.

During that huge gap, fans imagined endless ideas as to what the next adventure in their favorite series would be.

Rumors that it would feature a fully-realized theme park on Isla Nublar, known as 'Jurassic World', led to many questions running in everyone's minds. It was quite a surprising direction for the story that most people didn't see coming. When filming began in 2014, many fans flocked for the chance to personally take part in the experience. Cameras rolled in Hawaii first, but soon after that their lenses focused on several massive sets in New Orleans. That's when the three fans in this program embarked on a trip that would change their lives...
