Sam Neill  Dr. Alan Grant is the main protagonist in the first Girl meets world characters ages, as well as the first and third films.
In the novel, he is described as a barrel-chested, bearded man with a strong affinity for children, especially those interested in dinosaurs.
Grant, based on paleontologists Philip J. His scientific achievements, including the first description of maiasaurs, are those of Robert R.
Makela and Jack Horner. In the book, Grant tells the children that he once had a wife who died years before the story began. Grant was first approached by Donald Gennaro, chief counsel for InGen, to provide information on the requirements for the care of infant dinosaurs, claiming it to be for a museum exhibit.
He is invited by John Hammond, the eccentric billionaire and creator of Jurassic Park, to take a tour of the park and endorse it so his investors will be more confident.
Finding it hard to turn down a request from a major financial donor, Grant agrees, unaware that Hammond has managed to clone real dinosaurs. Throughout a large portion of the book, Dr. Grant and the two children explore the park trying to find their way back to the rest of the group.
In the film, much of this period is omitted, with only a few key events occurring onscreen. In the second novel, The Lost World, Dr. Grant is only mentioned.
Richard Levine tells Ian Malcolm that he asked Grant about rumors that InGen was cloning dinosaurs; according to Levine, Grant said the rumors were "absurd". The film portrays Dr.
Grant as having a very different personality than that described in the novel. In the films, Dr. Grant has an introverted personality and is pediaphobic. However, over the course of the first film he warms to Tim and Lex the two children accompanying him. This was because Spielberg wanted to "provide a source of dramatic tension that did not exist in the novel.
Grant specializes in Velociraptorsand believes that birds are closely related to dinosaurs. By the end of the film, his experience on the island changes his view of children and dinosaurs and he decides not to endorse Jurassic Park.
