Emilia Clarke Just Found Out The Hard Way That Chewbacca’s A Hugger
You’d think that her experience as a dragon-riding badass queen on Game of Thrones would prepare Emilia Clarke for pretty much anything, but even she can get bowled over by an impromptu hug from a Wookiee that’s got at least two feet on her.
The actress recently hit 10 million followers on Instagram and found out while on set for the yet-to-be-titled Han Solo origin story she’s currently filming in London. To celebrate, she found the inimitable Chewie in a down moment, and turned the lens of her phone his way.
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!!! 🏁✌️♥️ Yup. Those dreamboats at @starwars said yes, this furry ball of joy could help me thank you personally… @joonassuotamo you are more than just a cute nose and lotta hair to me. #allhailthewookieofourdreams #behindthescenes #behindthelove ❤️💪🏻🙌👌🏆🏆🏆🏆🏆🏆🏆🏆🏆🏆❤️
If you were ever wondering how excited a giant, furry creature with killer aim and a heart of gold could get about social media, congratulations! Clarke has done the heavy-lifting for you.
Clarke’s dispatch from set is the latest, so who knows—maybe we’ll get a look at Alden Ehrenreich as Solo sooner vs. later. (And maybe he’ll be hugging a Wookiee, too.)
