Thandie Newton Talks About Shooting 'Solo'

By: Dominic Jones

Solo: A Star Wars Story star Thandie Newton spoke with Entertainment Tonight this week and she spoke briefly about her role as Val in the film.  Very little is known about Val, she was seen only briefly in the teaser trailer that was released last month, however Newton says that moment in the trailer tells you everything you need to know about the character.  Newton said, "I think that the clip that you see [in the trailer], even though it’s really brief, tells you a lot. You know, there she is holding what looks like a weapon, and in a state of natural empowerment. You know, both the way she looks and her attitude. I loved playing the character. Loved it."

You can see Newton discuss Val and the process of shooting Solo (including the infamous directors change) in the video below,

Solo: A Star Wars Story hits theaters on May 25th, 2018 and stars Alden Ehrenreich (Hail Caesar!) as Han Solo, Donald Glover (Atlanta) as Lando Calrissian, Emilia Clarke (Game of Thrones) as Qi'Ra, Woody Harrelson (True Detective) as Beckett, Phoebe Waller-Bridge (Fleabag) as L3-37, Thandie Newton (Westworld) as Val, and Paul Bettany (The Avengers) as Dryden Vos.  The film is directed by Ron Howard (A Beautiful Mind), with a script by Lawrence Kasdan (The Empire Strikes Back) and his son Jon Kasdan (The First Time).
