Emilia Clarke is celebrating...with a little help from her friends.
The 30-year-old actress took to Instagram on Friday to celebrate reaching 10 million followers. In honor of the special occasion, Clarke shared a rare glimpse onto the set of the still-untitled upcoming Han Solo movie.
“In a Instagram far far away (Or in pinewood backlot filming #untitledhansolomovie) One CHEWBACCA (and one @emilia_clarke) wanted to THANK EACH AND EVERY ONE OF YOU 10 MILLION WONDERSTAR-INCREDIBLE DREAM MAKERS for following me,” the Game of Thrones star captioned the silly video of Chewie running around on set.
“Yup. Those dreamboats at @starwars said yes, this furry ball of joy could help me thank you personally,” she added. “@joonassuotamo you are more than just a cute nose and lotta hair to me.”
Although Clarke’s character in the next Star Wars film is still unknown, StarWars.com confirmed
that the Me Before You
actress’s role “will round out a dynamic cast of characters that Han and Chewie will encounter on their adventures."
Clarke will appear alongside Alden Ehrenreich and Donald Glover, who will play Han Solo and Lando Calrissian, respectively, in the new film, which is slated for a 2018 release.
