A Lego version of Dern’s Jurassic Park character, scientist Ellie Sattler, already exists. While many fans were thrilled to live in a world that has two Dern Lego figures, the actress isn’t stopping there.
“Wait, where’s my Blue Velvet one?” Dern tweeted alongside a photo of her two Lego doppelgängers, jokingly referring to her star-making role in David Lynch’s 1986 film.
