Emilia Clarke – An Interview with Han Solo’s New Gal Qi’ra

Photo Credit: Louise Manning Bishop / MomStart.com It was Saturday, the day before Mother's Day and there I was sitting in a room with 24 other bloggers waiting for the Mother of Dragons herself, Emilia Clarke. As part of an amazing Disney blogger event dubbed #HanSoloEvent, the 25 of us had the insane pleasure of attending the SOLO: A Star Wars Story Red Carpet Premiere and interviewing most of the cast members. Known for her tough female characters, Clarke has been involved with some pretty high profile properties including Game of Thrones, Terminator and now Star Wars. Would the real Emilia Clarke be as tough and foreboding as some ...

Alden Ehrenreich – The Young Han Solo Interview

Alden Ehrenreich (Han Solo). Photo Credit: Louise Manning Bishop / MomStart.com He may play one of the greatest scoundrels of all time, but Alden Ehrenreich is every bit as nice as he is humble. Cast in the role of a young Han Solo, the Los Angeles-born actor had some pretty big shoes to fill for his lead role in SOLO: A Star Wars Story opening May 25, 2018. As part of a #HanSoloEvent experience, myself and 24 bloggers had the opportunity to sit down with Ehrenreich in Los Angeles and grill him about living up to expectations, flying the Millennium Falcon and working with Game of Thrones star Emilia Clarke. Dressed ...

Bring Friends or Go SOLO, This is One Star Wars Story You Don’t Want to Miss

  I'll admit. I honestly was a little skeptical when I saw the first trailer for SOLO: A Star Wars Story. I already had my reservations, as I'm not a big fan of prequels simply for the fact that they remove the threat of uncertain death from the film. I mean, we know Han Solo ends up meeting Luke Skywalker and Ben Kenobi at the Cantina Bar on Tatooine in Star Wars: A New Hope. So short of being cloned, there's no way Han was going to bite it in SOLO. That said... I am ecstatic at how wrong I was. (Not the cloning or death part, but the movie itself.) SOLO is ...

I Was Admitted to General Hospital for an Exclusive Set Visit

Looking back to my childhood years, I remember coming home from school to find my mom and sister glued to the TV as the latest episode of ABC's General Hospital aired. Who knew just a few decades later I'd be walking on the very sets that they were mesmerized by. Yep, I recently had a trip to the hospital while I was out on a #HanSoloEvent Blogger Trip in Los Angeles, California. No, not that kind of hospital. This one was more general, as in General Hospital. Yes, I actually visited the set of this insanely popular soap opera that's celebrating 55 years on television. Oddly enough, this wasn't my first trip ...

Be My Co-Pilot for the SOLO: A Star Wars Story Red Carpet Experience

Last week I went solo at Hollywood. Well, technically I was with a group of 24 other bloggers, but we all entered a galaxy far far way (called Los Angeles) for the Red Carpet Premiere of SOLO: A Star Wars Story. I've only been on one other Red Carpet event previously (for Muppets: Most Wanted), so I wasn't sure what to expect this time around. All I knew was this was the first Star Wars event ever that bloggers were invited to walk the Red Carpet, and that I'd be one of the lucky few to see SOLO before anyone else on the planet. Oh yeah, and after the movie, we'd all ...
