Alden Ehrenreich Says Getting Ready to Play Young Han Solo Has Been 'Trippy'

Alden Ehrenreich was cast to play young Han Solo in an upcoming Star Wars flick and he’s been keeping busy preparing for the role!

The 26-year-old actor says that his experience with the role has been “trippy,” starting with the audition process.

“The main thing was just getting ready for the screen test. My one screen test was on the Millennium Falcon — which was really cool — with Chewbacca. That was pretty trippy,” he told People.

Alden added, “Getting to be around that world, now I’ve been around the fans a little bit, and just feeling the love, the real genuine love that people have for this franchise, is really exciting to me. And also, just being able to work on this particular movie, with this character…That’s really the pleasure for me, is the job that I get to actually do on the day-to-day level. Yeah, I just can’t wait!”
