We spoke about Michael K. Williams earlier today when we discussed his character being cut from the Untitled Han Solo movie, but did he accidentally reveal the name of Emilia Clarke's character in an interview with Vanity Fair...
So, just in case that is out of context, Michael was suggesting that his character is a link between Alden Ehrenreich's Han Solo and Emilia Clarke's character, Kira. So could this be the name of Emilia's character? Kira? Sounds familiar.
As Jason points over on MakingStarWars.net, the name Kira was kicking around during the production of The Force Awakens, when it was a placeholder for Rey. Could this have been anime favoured by Lawrence Kasdan, co-writer on both The Force Awakens and Han Solo? Possibly. But MakingStarWars.net also feel that they have information that suggests the name may in fact be something slightly different.
MSW are citing a source at Pinewood that are claiming that the character is actually name Kura, not Kira. That's a huge difference when it comes to the pronunciation. Could there be an error at one end of this leak? Only time will tell.
What do you make of these names? Kira or Kura, what do you think is the most likely? I like Kira, lets hope we hear something soon.
