The young "Han Solo" movie recently cast Emilia Clarke for an undisclosed female lead role. However, there are speculations that she plays Sana Solo.

The "Game of Thrones" star, who plays Daenerys Targaryen in the HBO series, might portray Han Solo's love interest. According to a report from Movieweb, rumors about Sana Solo appearing in the spinoff film are long overdue. They came out even before news spread about Emilia Clarke cast for the female lead in the young "Han Solo" movie.

According to the report, producers went on a hunt for a female lead to star opposite Alden Ehrenreich in the young "Han Solo" movie. They came down to four actors, although they did not disclose their names.

Now, this search for the actress to play Sana Solo in the young "Han Solo" movie happened three months ago. Is it possible that Emilia Clarke was among the four contenders? However, according to the report, none of the four actresses were white.

Moreover, in the original George Lucas story, Sana Solo is not white. Instead, she is black. It is unlikely then that Emilia Clarke plays the character in the young "Han Solo" movie. Unless Disney decided to cast a white actor for the part, then Clarke could very well play the smuggler's love interest.

Details about Emilia Clarke's role in the movie remain under wrap. So far, she has only been confirmed for the female lead. It remains unclear if she plays Sana Solo.

However, it is interesting to point out that rumors about Sana Solo's appearance coincided with the rumored casting of Donald Glover. At that time, the "Atlanta" star was rumored to play as the young Lando Calrissian. Now, three months later that rumor is confirmed.  This certainly fuels speculations that Emilia Clarke could eventually end up playing Sana Solo in the young "Han Solo" movie.
