Game of Thrones actress Emilia Clarke has just landed another great movie role! Lucasfilm has cast her in Phil Lord and Christopher Miller's highly anticipated Han Solo standalone film! The news comes from StarWars.com who says:
"StarWars.com is excited to announce that Clarke, known for her stirring portrayal of Daenerys Targaryen in HBO's Game of Thrones, will join the upcoming untitled Han Solo Star Wars movie. Clarke’s role will round out a dynamic cast of characters that Han and Chewie will encounter on their adventures."
Clarke joins Alden Ehrenreich, who is taking on the role of Han Solo, and Donald Glover, who was recently cast in the role of Lando Calrissian.
It's unclear if this is the same role that actresses Tessa Thompson (Creed), Zoe Kravitz (Divergent), Naomi Scott (Power Rangers), and Adria Arjona (Emerald City) were all in the running for.
Clarke could be playing a different character, but there's no information on who that might be. She'll make a solid addition to this ensemble cast. The movie is set to be released in 2018.
