In an interview with Entertainment Weekly, Clarke reveals Qi’ra and Han grew up together, creating some background before their eventual romance. But their relationship, in Clarke’s eyes, has a profound impact on who the galaxy’s favorite rogue will grow up to be.
But this femme fatale is much, much more than a pretty face (and a fashion icon). Clarke says:
“There is a thing throughout the relationship you just can’t put your finger on. And that’s Qi’ra. Every time you think you have got her number you realize you haven’t at all. [Laughs] Which is really hard to play. The goal is that the shadow of Qi’ra is there in Han as a character that we know. This girl is another texture that makes up who he is when we first meet him.”
