Emilia Clarke just joined the cast of the upcoming `Star Wars’ spin-off film, adding much interest to a film that has been met with heavy skepticism.

Game of Thrones actress Emilia Clarke just joined Alden Ehrenreich and Donald Glover in the upcoming Han Solo standalone movie. Filmmakers Phil Lord and Chris Miller have added elements to ensure that the Star Wars spin-off will be a dramatic movie chronicling the adventures of the young Han Solo.

The filmmakers  have let on that they have a cinematically compelling, emotionally engaging film in progress, with Arrival cinematographer Bradford Young also onboard the big project. The young blood said the Star Wars spin-off will retain the sci-fi movie franchise’s feel but will break some rules, something that Lucasfilm encourages.


The new film of The Lego Movie screenwriters was initially met with heavy skepticism, but recent developments, notably the introduction of dynamic talents into the much-touted  project, promise a very exciting film that will roll out in May 2018.

Queen of Dragons Emilia Clarke has previously starred in the big-budget film Terminator: Genisys. She also starred opposite Sam Claflin in the romantic-drama movie Me Before You. Nominated as Outstanding Supporting Actress in a Drama Series in the Primetime Emmy Award for Game of Thrones, Emilia Clarke‘s role in the Star Wars spin-off will be like no other.

The 30-year-old British beauty revealed once in an interview that filming a big movie like Terminator: Genisys was a gruelling experience. While the movie got mixed reviews, it did earn for Emilia a nomination from the Jupiter Awards for Best International Actress. The  actress has had her share of fun evenings frolicking with colleagues and friends during Hollywood red-carpet events.

As for Emilia Clarke’s role in the upcoming Star Wars Anthology series, it is still under wraps. Nonetheless, fans are thrilled that she snagged the role in the Star Wars spin-off film, and will have the opportunity to work with Donald Glover, who will play Lando Calrissian and Alden Ehrenreich, who will portray the young Han Solo. It can be said that the drama enthusiast turned television sensation and movie heroine has earned her acting stripes.
