Alden Ehrenreich Talks About Han Solo Audition Process

Alden Ehrenreich looks so suave for this new feature in Interview magazine’s new issue.

Here’s what the 26-year-old actor had to share:

On his audition for Han Solo: “Well, I had an audition process that went on for a long time, and I got to spend a lot of time with the guys who are directing the film. Getting to be around them and being around the world a little bit has been the main experience so far. I did my audition on the Millennium Falcon for one of my screen tests, which was pretty cool.”

On his dream roles: “I remember pretending to be the characters in the movies when I was a little kid. The last three movies I’ve done, I played a cowboy, then I played a soldier, and now I play Han Solo. So the little kid in me is having a real joyride.”

On dealing with rejection: “I’ve had that experience many, many, times—when you don’t get roles. I’d developed a good muscle for shaking it off. I buy myself a present whenever I don’t get a role that I really wanted. You get bummed out, and then you go, “Oh! Now I get to go buy a present for myself.” That kind of helps.”

Lily Collins & Alden Ehrenreich Fall For Each Other In 'Rules Don't Apply' Trailer

Lily Collins falls in love with someone she isn’t supposed to in the new trailer for Rules Don’t Apply.

The 27-year-old actress stars as small town beauty queen and devout Baptist virgin Marla Mabrey, who is under contract to the infamous Howard Hughes (Warren Beatty).

After arriving in Los Angeles, she meets her driver Frank Forbes (Alden Ehrenreich), who is engaged to be married to his 7th grade sweetheart and is a deeply religious Methodist.

Their instant attraction not only puts their religious convictions to the test, but also defies Hughes’ #1 rule: no employee is allowed to have any relationship whatsoever with a contract actress.

Hughes’ behavior intersects with Marla and Frank in very separate and unexpected ways, and as they are drawn deeper into his bizarre world, their values are challenged and their lives are changed.

Rules Don’t Apply will hits theaters on November 23rd.
