Taron Egerton Revealed He Auditioned For Playing a young Han Solo in ‘Solo’ but Dropped Out

Taron Egerton revealed that he came close to playing a young Han Solo in ‘Solo’ but dropped out because “no one ever wants to follow Harrison Ford.” he told that “I got on the Falcon. I was with Chewie. I was in full costume. I felt like I got there, I did it, I lived it.”

Speaking to the Happy Sad Confused podcast, Egerton revealed that he got as far as getting in full costume and boarding the Millennium Falcon with Chewbacca, but it just didn’t feel right.

Egerton just wasn’t dying to play our favorite space smuggler. “You know when we mentioned earlier, that thing when I read the ‘Kingsman’ script and I was like, ‘I’ve gotta do this. This is my part,’” he told Horowitz. “I just didn’t feel it [on ‘Solo’].” (Via The Wrap)

He added, “No one ever wants to follow Harrison Ford.”
