We have been expecting a casting announcement regarding a female actress and the Han Solo movie for quite some time. However, we were all a little shocked when the first name we heard was Emilia Clarke. She wasn't anywhere near the role we had previously heard discussed. While the odds are that the part she's playing is separate from the one that Tessa Thompson and others are being considered for, that could mean there isn't just one major female role in the new movie.

Of course, that means we have to try and figure out who Emilia Clarke is playing. With the amount of Star Wars expanded universe content drastically reduced by Disney, there are far fewer obvious places to look, but there are still ideas to be had, and other characters who could inspire the eventual role

Hera Syndulla

One of the places in the Star Wars universe where strong female characters are plentiful is in the current animated series Star Wars Rebels. It's also a place where some really interesting aliens exist who should take more of a front-and-center spot in Star Wars movies. Would Emilia Clarke be willing to do a little prosthetic and green screen work to be the first major alien character since Jar Jar? Whatever we could do to replace that would be great. Hera is a driven and focused commander, but she's not without compassion. It's not that far from Clarke's role on Game of Thrones.
