The Dominion Post talked to Fay Wray, star of the original film, who gives her blessing to Peter Jackson's King Kong remake.'
'Speaking exclusively to The Dominion Post, the Canadian-born actress, who is now 95, said she was impressed Jackson wanted to remain true to the original by setting it in the same period.'
'I remember Merion Cooper so well, who created the original. I still remember when he was just thinking of the idea for the film and he looked at me and said, 'I know ? I think I will call it Kong ? no, even better, I will call it King Kong!' He was a wonderful person ? so strong and devoted to film.'
'I think it is excellent and honourable that Peter Jackson wants to be true to the original. And I am proud that he wants to keep King Kong alive.'
She would not, however, consider doing a cameo.
