When it was first announced that HBO was bringing us a small screen adaptation of Game of Thrones, many people began to speculate as to which big name stars would appear in the series. Following the pilot episode of Game of Thrones, there was a lot of casting changes for the actual series, with a lot of unfamiliar names being brought in to play some of the biggest roles in the show.
Not many people had ever even heard of the name Emilia Clarke, when it was announced that she had been cast to play the role of Daenerys Targaryen in Game of Thrones but, since then, she has gone on to become a fans favourite and has seen her stock in Hollywood growing all the time. In fact, Emilia is still seeing her Hollywood career going from strength to strength, with some exciting new projects coming our way.
While we love seeing Emilia Clarke in the role of Daenerys Targaryen in Game of Thrones, we have to admit that we are very excited to see her appearing in the new Star Wars spinoff movie. Emilia has a role in the untitled Han Solo movie and we cannot wait to see which character she will be playing and just what they manage to do with this new prequel movie.
The new Han Solo movie has some big names involved and, as well as having Emilia Clarke involved and having Alden Ehrenreich on board in the lead role, the project will also see the likes of Woody Harrelson, Thandie Newton, and Donald Glover, among others. The film is being directed by Phil Lord and Christopher Miller and is aiming for a May 25, 2018 release date.
