3 I rescued Tim from a tree. Who am I?
Answer: Sam Neill

Neill, born on September 14th, 1947 in Tyrone, Northern Ireland, was cast as Dr. Alan Grant. Dr. Grant was a paleontologist and he investigated the fossils of early dinosaurs. In one of his first scenes, he described a dinosaur claw that he'd found and said it likely came from a velociraptor. Dr. Grant was invited to go to a place called Jurassic Park where the head of a company called Ingen, John Hammond, used DNA to build genetically engineered dinosaurs. Once Dr. Grant got to Jurassic Park, he realized that this trip was not the vacation he hoped for since he was dodging dinosaurs that wanted to kill him and other humans. In one scene Dr. Hammond's grandson, Tim, was stuck in a tree and Dr. Grant climbed the tree to free Tim. At the end of the movie, Dr. Grant and a couple others were cornered by a couple of velociraptors but they managed to escape when a T-Rex arrived and killed the raptors. Before Dr. Grant and the others got to the airplane to fly away from Jurassic Park, he told John Hammond he was not endorsing the park. Neill reprised his role of Dr. Grant in "Jurassic Park III". He also starred in the films, "Bicentennial Man" and "The Hunt for Red October".

13 I decided to stay behind to help a triceratops. Later, I managed to get the power turned back on at Jurassic Park. Who am I?
Answer: Laura Dern

Dern, a native of Los Angeles, California, played Dr. Ellie Sattler. Dr. Sattler was a paleobotanist and was thrilled when she and Dr. Alan Grant were invited to go see genetically created dinosaurs on Jurassic Park. When they first started exploring the island, they came upon a brontosaurus and Ellie was amazed at how big the dinosaur was. Upon further exploration of the island, Ellie and others came upon a triceratops that was sick. Ellie decided she would stay behind, to help the triceratops and she told Dr. Grant she would meet him at another location. Ellie went to where the T-rex exhibit was and noticed it had escaped, so she and someone else continued to look around. They came upon an injured Ian Malcolm and got him in their jeep and drove off. While they drove, a T-rex charged after them and tried to flip the car over but was unsuccessful. Meanwhile, the power to the park went out and Ellie decided she would go to a building and turn it on, so John agreed to provide her instructions to do it. Ellie turned the power on and it was right after she did that that she encountered a velociraptor but, she was not injured by it. Dern reprised her role of Ellie Sattler in "Jurassic Park III", She was also in the movies, "I Am Sam" and "Citizen Ruth".

Answer: Joseph Mazzello

Mazzello, born in 1983 in Rhinebeck, New York, played Tim Murphy. Tim was John Hammond's grandson and Lex's brother and they were first seen at Jurassic Park's visitor's center. They accompanied the others on a tour of the park and all were disappointed when they did not see the dilophosaurus. That night, it was raining hard and the car that Tim and Lex were in was right outside the T-rex exhibit and the T-rex escaped. The dinosaur attacked the car but Tim and Lex fought him off in the car - only Lex managed to get out of the car. The T-rex flipped the car into a tree and Dr. Grant climbed up to rescue Tim from the car. When he did, Tim told him he threw up in the car.
