SCREENRANT – The name of Emilia Clarke’s mystery character in the young Han Solo spinoff movie seems to have been revealed. Like all modern day Lucasfilm projects, the second Star Wars anthology film has been closely shrouded in secrecy as new director Ron Howard makes his way through production. Among the questions fans have are the identities of the fresh faces viewers will meet in this adventure through a galaxy far, far away. As was the case with all its predecessors, Han Solo is introducing some new characters to appear alongside Han, Lando Calrissian, and Chewbacca. Only one name has been revealed so far – Woody Harrelson’s Beckett, Han’s mentor.

 

This means we still have much to learn about most of the ensemble, including Clarke. The Game of Thrones star is locked in to play the female lead, promising her character is “awesome” and celebrating Instagram milestones with Chewbacca on-set. She seems to have a prominent role, making her the subject of much interest as fans wait for the film to come out. Finally, one detail about Clarke’s character has been revealed – her name.

 

In an interview with Vanity Fair, actor Michael K. Williams (who just left Han Solo due to scheduling conflicts), spilled the beans when he said his alien character had “a link between Han Solo and Emilia’s character, Kira.” The website Making Star Wars followed this up, assuring this is “not a misquote,” but spelled slightly differently. Per their sources, Clarke’s character is called Kura. It’s unknown at this point in time which will become official canon come next May.

 

The other interesting tidbit included here is that Williams was portraying someone with a connection to Han and Kira, making it sound like he had an important role in the story. Of course, with Williams now off the project, some will wonder if the script was retooled to account for his leaving, or if the role has been recast. So much of Han Solo is being kept under wraps, so it’s difficult to say at this juncture how all the pieces fall into place. Hopefully, more information about the movie comes out soon, painting a clearer picture of what to expect.

 

Some fans may recall that Kira was the name originally used for Rey during pre-production on The Force Awakens before it was obviously changed, so Lucasfilm apparently liked the sound of it and wanted to use the name for another character. Viewers should not take that nugget of trivia and run with wild “Kira is Rey’s mom” theories, as this connection is most likely a coincidence. The point of the standalones is to show how expansive the galaxy can be, and “everyone’s related to each other” is already a widely-mocked trope in the Star Wars franchise. Kira (or Kura) should be someone free of any ties to the saga, giving Howard and company the freedom to create something new and fascinating.

I meant to post this last week and didn’t but I wanted to make sure the fans saw it.

 

EW – It finally happened: Daenerys Targaryen lost one of her priceless children. The death of Viserion the dragon was the unexpectedly steep cost of Jon Snow’s mission to bring a wight south as proof of the Army of the Dead. Taken down by a spear hurled by the Night King himself, the twist proved that Mother of Dragons’ children are not as invulnerable as they usually seem. Potentially even worse is that the Night King then resurrected the dragon’s body to join his force, giving his undead army a powerful new weapon.

 

“It’s a heartbreak,” star Emila Clarke tells EW. “Not only losing it but having that being given to the other side.”

 

For Daenerys, the death of Viserion makes defeating the Army of the Dead all the more crucial, Clarke notes. “My dragon could not have died for nothing, so this is now so important,” she says. “For the first time, you’re starting to see her defenses broken.”

 

The actress admits she found it amusing, however, that of all the dragons to “join” the Night King’s team, it’s the one Dany named after her devious brother Viserys that was converted. “Of course it’s the rotten egg, of course you’d turn,” she quips.

 

Yet this moment of vulnerability shouldn’t let viewers forget that Daenerys has been making some rather brutal choices lately — such as her decision to roast the Tarlys that has Tyrion so concerned that she could eventually become as dangerous as her Mad King father.

 

“The biggest question this season for Dany is what side of the coin she’s on,” Clarke says. “The unequivocal nature in choosing to be this aggressive is something you haven’t seen before. She’s practiced patience and has this savior-like quality, but now it’s game on.”

Here is a snippet from an interview with Jeremy Podeswa – Director of Episode 7.07 ‘The Dragon and The Wolf’ THE HOLLYWOOD REPORTER

 

The revelation about Jon’s true origin comes juxtaposed with Jon and Daenerys’ first love scene. There’s some cognitive dissonance in play as a result, since this is arguably a heroic moment and a romantic moment … but Freud would have a field day, as well. What was the tonal balance you were trying to strike?

 

You’re getting an epic revelation in this sequence. It’s an epic revelation about the past, and an epic revelation that’s suggestive of the future and what’s going to happen. For us, it was very important that there be a question about what could possibly happen after this moment. We know now the full history that led to this moment, but now what’s going to happen? In the script, it described the fact that they were love-making, but it didn’t go into great detail in terms of what was going on between them as characters in that moment. We built in a moment between Kit and Emilia where they stopped for a moment and looked into each other’s eyes. The intention from my point of view, and their point of view too, is that they’re driven by passion into this. They don’t even fully understand what it’s all about and what the consequences of it are. They really can’t stop themselves. It’s almost destiny that’s bringing them together. There’s a moment where they’re like, “Are we actually going to continue doing this? Are we actually doing this?” And they can’t stop themselves. For me, that was really important, and that gets played out with Tyrion, too, because now he knows that this has happened and there are big questions for him and for everybody what the larger consequences of this are going to be.

EWThis story contains spoilers from Game of Thrones season 7, episode 3, “The Queen’s Justice”

 

On Sunday night’s Game of Thrones, ice and fire finally came together.

 

Daenerys Targaryen (Emilia Clarke) and Jon Snow (Kit Harington) met for the first time in season 7’s third episode, “The Queen’s Justice.” And surprise-surprise — they didn’t exactly hit it off. Dany demanded Jon declare House Stark’s allegiance to her Targaryen claim for the Iron Throne while Jon begged for her assistance to help him fight the Army of the Dead — something she doesn’t believe even exists. Eventually, they struck an uneasy agreement, yet it’s unclear where they go from here.

 

“I predicted, like everyone, they would meet this season, but I don’t think I predicted it quite as quickly,” Harington told EW. “But then again, you’ve got to take yourself out of the mindset of the viewer. As far as Jon knows, he’s just meeting this queen he’s heard of and trying to negotiate with her — he’s not meeting Daenerys, who the audience has been watching for so many years. That helps with the surprise of it. He walks into the room and doesn’t expect to see such a beautiful young woman of similar age to him. Any young man’s reaction is going to be, ‘Okay…’ but he puts that aside, because he has to.”

 

Adds Clarke: “I had an idea it was coming this season, sure. It was fun to play — she doesn’t like him and she doesn’t believe him.”

 

It’s a meeting that showrunners David Benioff and Dan Weiss have been excited to unveil for years. “It was really fun to watch that scene and I thought they did a great job,” Benioff says. “There isn’t instant chemistry. He’s annoying and she’s annoying and they have to figure out how to make peace.”

 

Of course, as the audience has known since last season, Jon is very likely a Targaryen himself — and Dany is his aunt. Only Bran knows both sides of Jon’s parentage for certain, and he’s back at Winterfell.

 

One moment that gave Harington a bit of concern, however, was his scene with Tyrion (Peter Dinklage) on the cliff where he was wearing a long billowing cloak. “It was a beautiful location with 50 mph winds and I was wearing a cape next to a cliff,” he recalls. “There was a danger of me being blown off! I’m not sure it’s the way I would have wanted to go.”

EWLena Headey and Emilia Clarke on their characters’ strengths and weaknesses in the war to come

 

 

If you think war in Westeros has been bloody and devastating with all those would-be kings contending for the Iron Throne, just wait until the queens get their turn to face off. We spoke to Emilia Clarke (Daenerys Targaryen) and Lena Headey (Cersei Lannister) about the brewing battle between their characters in season 7.

 

On the throne in King’s Landing is Cersei, the ruler of Westeros by a combo of marriage, misfortune, and assassination; soon-to-claim the throne at Dragonstone is Daenerys, the exiled former princess returning home to claim her birthright. It’s a rivalry that threatens to tear Westeros apart—with our beloved Starks at Winterfell potentially caught in the middle. Below is a reminder and analysis of the resources each side has and some thoughts from the stars on this clash of queens:

BELEFAST TELEGRAPH – Ahead of the seventh series of Game of Thrones which begins in July, Una Brankin talks to the show’s biggest stars, including Emilia Clarke and Kit Harington, about the ending of the most-watched TV show in the world and how they feel about their last days of filming and leaving Belfast behind.

 

It’s girl power all the way in the seventh series of Game of Thrones according to the cast members who filmed their final scenes in Belfast’s Titanic Studios and the Linen Mill studios in Banbridge.

 

And to the delight, especially, of those playing the warring women of Westeros, the drama that started out in 2009 as a male-dominated medieval adventure has become a powerful tale of female empowerment.

 

Actress Emilia Clarke has high hopes for her warrior queen character, Daenerys, ending up on the famous hot seat.

 

All eyes will be on the tiny but fierce Daenerys and her ferocious dragons (now three) as she makes her bid for power, alongside “the imp” Tyrion Lannister, in the final series of the hit show, which begins on Sky Atlantic on Monday, July 17.

 

“Right now, I’m sort of feeling – with her – optimistic,” says Emilia, who was cast as Daenerys, the princess also known as Mother of Dragons, after a guest spot on the BBC drama Doctors. “She’ll probably need some help, though. I’ll definitely be disappointed if she doesn’t make it.

 

“I think that there was always that idea that she would know where she was going to, but the reality is frightening.

March 15, 2017  AliKat No comments Articles, Voice from the Stone

For those who have seen Me Before You, the beginning of the trailer for Voice from the Stone may seem a little familiar. A young person has undergone a tragedy, and Emilia Clarke‘s character is brought in to help. She’s caring, witty, and charming, and is hoping to bring them back from the brink. But Voices from the Stone is not a love story, it’s a supernatural thriller. At this remote Italian castle, Clarke’s Verena wants to help young Jakob (Edward Dring), whose mother just passed away. He hasn’t spoken since, but swears he hears her voice in the walls. Soon, she does too …

 

Verena also gets into a relationship with Jackob’s father, Klaus (Marton Csokas), which keeps her at the house long after she starts realizing something is very wrong. Check out the creepy trailer below:

 

As badass as Clarke can be in action movies or as the Khaleesi on Game of Thrones, I think she’s really at her best in these smaller dramatic roles. Directed by Eric Howell and based on the novel by Silvio Raffo, the movie (which takes place in the 1950s) was described by Howell to USA Today as a “Hitchcockian fairy tale.” Clarke added that for Verena, the house is “mixed in with all of the loneliness she has felt in her life as a nurse who is always moving from one family to another. It seems that happiness is only a family away.”

My life has been shaped by a true sense of equality; it was never an overt “for crying out loud Emilia is just as capable as her brother!” it was simply etched into every action, choice, and behaviour of my family.

 

It was a recognised matter of fact that I, as a woman, was no different to my brother. Just as my mum was no different from my father in their careers, therefore I was raised in an equal earning, equally managed household that showed me anything a man could do, a woman could and should do too.

 

So I grew up with a voice, but it was not a shared voice of a generation, and it was only much later I realised what an incredible, feminist, start to life I had been given.

 

In the last few months we have all witnessed a major shift in the way women are collectively making their voices heard. The Women’s March on 21 January gathered more than five million people throughout the world – giving us all the lead to see what we can do to make this a change that’s here to stay.

 

Now I don’t know about you, but there are days where I feel like a guilty feminist. What am I actually doing every day to stand up for women’s rights? My personal experiences, and my understanding of the bigger issues of inequality, aren’t enough. What can I take part in, against hate and oppression, to ensure that the women’s movement continues, and strengthens and grows?

 

And so guest editing the All Women Everywhere edition of The Huffington Post UK is not a task I take lightly.
