Lowery Cruthers is a Jurassic World employee. He worked in the control room, along with Vivian.


Jurassic World

After finishing college Lowery got a job working for Masrani Global Corporation's Jurassic World on Isla Nublar. [1]

Isla Nublar Incident (2015)

When the park's Indominus rex escaped her paddock in the Isla Nublar Incident of 2015 he stayed inside the control room throughout the incident. He saw the InGen Security Division taking over the control room and asking everyone to leave, but stayed in case anyone needed something. Eventually he was available to attend Claire Dearing's request to open the Tyrannosaurus rex paddock, leading Tyrannosaurus rex to attack the I. rex. Once the Indominus was defeated, Lowery shut down all systems and evacuated to the mainland.[2]

Working for the CIA

Following the destruction of Jurassic World and the 2018 Dinosaur Outbreak, Lowery got recruited into the CIA's Dangerous Species Division along with a number of other former Jurassic World employees. While bringing up Barry Sembène's information on his tablet, Franklin Webb pages past Lowery's picture.[3]

Personality and traits

Lowery has a fondness for dinosaurs since he was a child. Also as a child, he was intrigued by the failed Jurassic Park which featured recreated dinosaurs. Even as an adult he had several toy dinosaurs he kept in his workplace as well as a Jurassic Park t-shirt he purchased from eBay for $150. [1]

Lowrey shares a number of similar characteristics with Dr. Ian Malcolm from the first two films. He was visibly unsettled by the idea of a dinosaur hybrid being created, as well as the idea of Jurassic World being owned by corporations. He also expresses a belief in chaos theory, claiming he tries to keep a balance between chaos and order, similar to Malcolm's profession as a Chaos Theoretician.[2]


Claire Dearing

He and Claire seem to have had a fair relationship though she personally thought his Jurassic Park shirt was "distasteful" due to the unfortunate incident that led to its downfall.[1]

Vivian Krill

Lowery had a close relationship with workmate Vivian. Once she was about to leave in the emergency evacuation, Lowery attempted to kiss her, only for Vivian to reject revealing she had a boyfriend. Instead they both embraced prior to her departure.[2]



  • Lowery Cruthers originally planned to appear in Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom but his role was cut from the film.
    • Although uncertain, the most likely reason for this is because that Lowery wouldn't have a purpose in the story since he is a camera operator whose role could be filled by anyone else. If true, the producers probably decided that paying Jake Johnson for what would probably have been a glorified cameo was not worth it and wrote him out.
