Fans of Emilia Clarke will miss her as “Game of Thrones” Season 7 just ended on Aug. 27, Sunday. They will have to wait for a few months more before they can see her again but this time on the big screen.
In a recent interview with Vanity Fair, Michael K. Williams talked about his character in an untitled “Star Wars” film focusing on Han Solo (Alden Ahrenreich), which also stars Clarke. According to Williams, his character in the film had a link between the characters played by Clarke and Ahrenreich.
Williams said Clarke’s character in upcoming “Star Wars” film is named Kira. However, sources told Making Star Wars that the spelling of the character’s name is Kura, and not Kira.
Ron Howard is directing the “Star Wars” film set to be released on May 25, 2018. The screenplay was written Jon Kasdan and Lawrence Kasdan based on the characters created by George Lucas.
Joining Clarke, Williams and Ahrenreich in the cast are Woody Harrelson, Donald Glover, Joonas Suotamo, Richard Dixon and Deepak Anand as Beckett, Lando Calrissian, Chewbacca, an elite citizen and a sheesha smoking guest, respectively. Also in the cast are Douglas Robson, Phoebe Waller-Bridge, Clint Howard, Warwick Davis and Thandie Newton.
