Actress Emilia Clarke Talks About The Han Solo Spin-Off Film “Level Of Secrecy”

Disney and Lucasfilm continues to go through great lengths to keep their stories for its movies under wraps. Just ask actress Emilia Clarke, who has recently signed on to play an undisclosed character in the new Han Solo spin-off, about the secrecy on the film. Read on for more!


Hollywood studios often go out of their way to keep films tightly under wraps before release, sometimes even having its own cast shrouded in endless secrecy. Keeping anything a secret has to be nearly impossible in this day and age, but some wonder whether Lucasfilm’s Star Wars series has gone too far in its quest to keep the plot of their films under wraps.



Star Wars: The Force Awakens director J.J. Abrams reportedly went as far as asking actors to read material that was not even from the top secret script. They couldn’t tell anyone for which parts they were reading, and their agents and publicists had to sign strict nondisclosure agreements and turn in their phones daily. According to actress Emilia Clarke (Game of Thrones), the production secrecy doesn’t seem to be getting any lighter for the latest Star Wars spin-off film. Apparently, the latest film is shrouded in so much secrecy that it’s ‘scary‘.


Speaking to the Los Angeles Daily News, Clarke had this to say about the film’s level of secrecy, as well as sharing a few nice words about Alden Ehrenreich, the actor who landed the coveted role of young Han Solo.

“I genuinely can’t tell you anything other than Alden is magnificent, and it’s a delight to do something on that level with really cool actors and nice people,” she said.


When it comes to HBO’s Game of Thrones series, Clarke says they go to great lengths to keep their material under wraps.

“No-one knows anything. No-one is told anything. It’s all crazy,” she said. “It’s a secret from the cast. We generally can’t be trusted. They pretty much have told us so.”


Sounds like a tight security on ‘Thrones’, right? Well, apparently that doesn’t compare to the level of security they have for the new Han Solo spin-off film.

“But it’s even scarier talking about that (Han Solo) than Game of Thrones.”


Right now, we know very little about the character that Clarke will be playing. Although, we do know that she is part of “a dynamic cast of characters that Han and Chewie will encounter on their adventures”.


Personally I absolutely love Clarke and can’t wait to see her on the big-screen.


Han Solo: A Star Wars Story blasts into theaters in May 2018.



May the force be with you….

    Ok….so….just checking here…Emilia Clark’s character is a “dynamic cast of characters” (multiple personalities?), and the author of this article also states “Personally I absolutely love to be an actress”….. Do tell….do tell. 😉

    She’s great in GoT and was, apart from Arnie, the only good thing in the last Terminator film. Looking forward to seeing what she brings to Star Wars.

    This totally makes since that they would want to keep it tight. The film represents hundreds of millions of dollars in ticket sales. I’m not sure if many of the people that post on this site remember what happened in 2002 when Attack of the Clones was leaked in it’s entirety to the internet several days before it was released. It’s believed this leak cost LucasFilm millions in ticket sales, and this was way before Youtube and other video sharing sites even existed. If you wanted to “steal” the movie you had to download it from various phantom sites and that would often take hours. I don’t know if LucasFilm ever discovered the identity of the person that leaked it, but it defiantly was an internal leak. Could you imagine what would happen today if The last Jedi suddenly showed up on You Tube weeks or even months before the release?

      you misspelled “Billions” as “hundreds of millions”

    I think it’s great that they keep the security so tight. They are protecting us from ourselves !

    I for one like to go into a movie not knowing all about it. I’m even somewhat selective what I decide to read on this site.

    My favorite pic of JJ ever where he is literally giving the fans the finger and thinking he’s being subtle about it.

    I also love his bewildered “how the fuck has no one seen through me yet and how did I fucking get here” look that Dumbya displayed everyday in office.

      Why are you even still here?

      Quit boring people with the same darn post every other day.

      You’re not being controversial. You’re not being edgy. You’re not even being witty.

      You’re being annoying.

    Except for what the (non-protagonist) actors can figure out from their own scenes, I guess they pretty much have to go to the theater to finally find out what it is really ABOUT, this movie they are in.

    Very well. Harrison Ford reportedly didn’t learn that Vader was Luke’s father until opening night of Empire Strikes Back. Lucas and the director ONLY told Mark Hamill himself. Even the Vader body actor read a false line, to be overdubbed by James Earl Jones later.
