We know her as Qi’ra. Others know her as the Khaleesi, Mother of Dragons and the object of Khal Drogo’s short-lived affection in the hit HBO series Game of Thrones. We’re talking about none other than Solo’s Emilia Clarke, and she shared a sweet photo on social media this week that’s throwing us back to her Thrones days.
This past weekend, Clarke and Thrones co-star Jason Momoa both attended the birthday party of the series co-creator David Benioff — as Entertainment Weekly reports. There, the two snapped some photos together during the fun party, and they shared just how happy they were to see each other again.
On her Instagram post, Clarke shared a sweet message, writing: “When your sun and stars rolls into town you check that he can still bench press a Khaleesi.” And, her caption for the photo was no exaggeration. Momoa’s seen in the picture carrying his former co-star, as if Daenerys Targaryen and Khal Drogo were always together this whole time.
Momoa, too, shared a few photos to his Instagram account, including an additional photo with Clarke perched atop his lap like the true king and queen that they are.
Emilia Clarke and Jason Momoa reunion
When it comes to Emilia Clarke’s role in Star Wars, sometimes it feels like she isn’t quite done. Her character Qi’ra has only appeared on screen once so far in Solo, but the character has had some recent appearances in the latest run of Star Wars comics.
Clarke also revealed that she has pages of backstory written on Qi’ra. And since the door is still open for Clarke to appear in other Star Wars projects, we think that backstory would be excellent material for a Qi’ra spinoff of some kind.
As for Momoa, we’ll be waiting for the actor to have a Star Wars appearance. But in the meantime, he’ll be appearing alongside Oscar Isaac in the sci-fi movie Dune, which is set to come out Oct. 22.
