Emilia Clarke Has a 'Game of Thrones' Star in Mind to Play Young Luke Skywalker (Exclusive)

Emilia Clarke is keeping it in the family. 

The 31-year-old actress stars as a new character, Qi'ra, in the Han Solo-centered Solo: A Star Wars Story, but she'd like to see a fellow Game of Thrones star join the franchise as a young Luke Skywalker. 

"I feel like I have to say Kit Harington," she told ET's Cameron Mathison at the film's Los Angeles premiere on Thursday. "Because I have to, do you know what I mean?" 

Clarke understandably has certain allegiances to the King in the North, but couldn't be more excited to be a part of the franchise she's been watching since she was a kid.

"My brother was a huge fan, he's my big brother. I was always gonna do everything he told me to do, so I watched them really young [and] got into them from him," she shared. "Then when it all came back the second time around, I became a fan all over again, because it's just... they've taken it to every level." 

"And then when they wanted me to be in it, I'm like, 'What? OK!'" she expressed. 

Disney definitely pulled out all the stops for Thursday's premiere -- including the Millennium Falcon. "I mean, it's ridiculous," Clarke raved. "[Seeing it for the first time] was fully crazy. That was fully, like, spine-tingling. Insane." 

One thing Clarke is still waiting for, however, is for fans to finally see the film, and not have to keep it a secret anymore. "I really cannot wait for someone else to know what happens in this movie," she said. "Oh my god, I can't wait." 

Solo: A Star Wars Story hits theaters on May 25. See more from the premiere in the video below.
