Emilia Clarke Is Unrecognisable In New Star Wars Promo

Also – she’s in the new Han Solo Star Wars spin-off!

While Emilia Clarke has a number of major roles under her belt these days, she’s still best known for her role as the ice blonde bombshell Khaleesi in Game of Thrones.

So that’s why we did a major double take when we saw the new photo announcing the cast of the new Star Wars spin-off. 

The 30-year-old British actress is sporting her natural brunette locks – and a fringe, which we first saw last week, and now know why!

The film will follow a young Han Solo (played by Alden Ehrenreich) and his best mate Chewie on their adventures in a galaxy far, far away – before the events of Star Wars: A New Hope.

Donald Glover will star as “that other card-playing rogue”, Lando Calrissian, but all the other characters, including Emilia’s as well as Woody Harrelson and Thandie Newton, are shrouded in secrecy at this stage.

The as-yet untitled movie has started filming and is due for release on May 25, 2018.
