Emilia Clarke reveals keeping Han Solo spoilers is "even scarier" than Game of Thrones

Emilia Clarke is often stuck between a rock and a hard place filled with spoilers upon spoilers. First she has to keep schtum about Game of Thrones season 7 (opens in new tab), and now the Han Solo movie (opens in new tab) is something to remain tight-lipped about. But which of the pair scares Clarke the most when it comes to the possibility of accidentally revealing something she shouldn’t? It sounds like Disney and the Han Solo movie holds the upper hand in the spoiler secrecy stakes…

Speaking to the Los Angeles Daily News (opens in new tab), Clarke remained wonderfully coy about her role – which we still know very little about to her credit – in the Han Solo movie. She remarks, “I genuinely can’t tell you anything other than Alden [Ehrenreich] is magnificent, and it’s a delight to do something on that level with really cool actors and nice people.”

But which of the head honchos – HBO or Disney – are the hardest taskmasters for making sure not even a sliver of spoiler-y content comes out? Perhaps unsurprisingly, given Mark Hamill compared them to the CIA (opens in new tab), Disney seem to win in striking fear into the hearts of actors everywhere, as Clarke says: “But it’s even scarier talking about [the Han Solo movie] than Game of Thrones. ” Note to self: don’t mess with the House of Mouse.

I really hope she doesn’t get into trouble for saying that…
