Emilia Clarke has revealed that she was really happy to re-shoot Solo: A Star Wars Story with Ron Howard as director.
Solo: A Star Wars Story has had a tumultuous history, mainly the changing of directors late into the game that led Ron Howard to come in and re-shoot vast amounts of the movie.
Solo is due out in cinemas next week and one of its stars, Emilia Clarke, has spoken to Variety about how much she enjoyed filming with Howard and how much fun the director made the process:
“Ron came on and literally took us all in and listened to everyone. He had, like, no time to prep whatsoever and just took us from this kind of ‘what are we doing’ to a place of such ease and comfort and fun. And we got to revisit stuff that normally you don’t get to have a second chance on,” Clarke explained to Variety. “So, there were a number of scenes where I was like, ‘Yes, thank goodness. I did not do that well. I’m very happy to revisit that.’”
Clarke also said that although it was an unconventional shooting process, that in the end, it worked out for the best: “It weirdly ended up working out in a really great way where you go, ‘I kind of wish I could have a couple of months and then go back to it and fix a couple of things that I wasn’t happy with on the day.’”
Well, it certainly sounds like Clarke is pleased with how things turned out in the end and fans now have very little time to wait to see what the team behind Solo managed to create.
