Emilia Clarke, who is best known as Daenerys Targaryen in HBO’s Game of Thrones, has joined the cast of the Star Wars Han Solo stand-alone film. There’s no word yet on who the actress will play, so let the speculation game begin. According to Lucasfilm, “Clarke’s role will round out a dynamic cast of characters that Han and Chewie will encounter on their adventures.” Alden Ehrenreich stars as Han Solo while Donald Glover will play fellow rogue Lando Calrissian in the film, which will take place in the young Corellian smuggler’s life prior to his adventures in the original Star Wars. The untitled Han Solo movie will be directed Phil Lord and Christopher Miller for a 2018 release.
