Emilia Clarke’s transition from “Game of Thrones” powerhouse to blockbuster movie star gets a major boost with the opening of “Solo: A Star Wars Story.”

Clarke looked back on the chaotic production of “Terminator Genisys” in an interview with Vanity Fair and admitted that “no one had a good time” making the sequel.
The film was directed by Alan Taylor, who Clarke knew well from “Game of Thrones.”
