Emilia Clarke – aka Daenerys Stormborn of the House Targaryen, First of Her Name, the Unburnt, Queen of the Andals and the First Men, Khaleesi of the Great Grass Sea, Breaker of Chains, and Mother of Dragons – has been cast in an upcoming Star Wars spin-off movie. 

Clarke will be swapping Westeros for a galaxy far, far away, and her dragons for the likes of Chewie and Han Solo. 

The 30-year-old British actress will appear in directors Phil Lord and Christopher Miller's currently untitled Han Solo stand alone movie, which is set before the original Star Wars trilogy. 

'Clarke’s role will round out a dynamic cast of characters that Han and Chewie will encounter on their adventures,' reveal filmmakers

She's joining Alden Ehrenreich and Donald Glover, who have been cast as Han Solo and Lando Calrissian. 

The untitled Han Solo movie is set for release in 2018.
