When Taylor was brought to the surgery of Dr Galen for a life-saving operation after his initial capture, Dr Galen was assisted by a female chimpanzee nurse.

Notes

  • The character is referred to as "Nurse" in the final shooting script.[1]
  • The character was played by Erlynn Botelho, and an early wardrobe test showed the same actress dressed in a slightly different nurse's outfit.[2]
  • The 2011 novel Conspiracy of the Planet of the Apes featured Dr. Galen's nurse 'Jaila', who was revealed to be the name of the character. She fainted upon hearing Landon speak, and suffered a concussion. In the 2018 follow-up novel Death of the Planet of the Apes, Jaila has become a significant member of the 'Anti-Vivisection Society', alongside Galen's widow, Liet.
