Alden is a great actor. He did a an incredible job embodying the character of Han Solo. His dialogue is so believable. The way he talked with the other characters, the way he talks to a Wookiee and makes it believable - that isn’t easy to do! But yet he does it. I mean, he just knocked it out of the park. Alden had the tallest order of trying to kind of be like Harrison Ford and to pull off some of the mannerisms Ford brought to the character. And Alden succeeds in pulling it off. He made certain grimaces and subtle gestures at times that were believable and looked just like the grimaces and gestures that Harrison had made in the original trilogy. Alden also had the challenge of making the character of Han his own while still honoring the Han that we know and love. And does he do so! He pulls it off. Alden just has this rare ability to infuse comedy in such an authentic and organic way. He was amazing in every scene and his performance exceeded my expectation. (Above/Below) I was impressed with this gambling den scene in this rundown cantina, the look and gestures by Han as he approaches the table were just spot on. All the exchanges between Qi’Ra, Han, Lando, and Beckett were great here. This scene was also very reminiscent of the Mos Eisley cantina scene in the original SW with all the aliens and pilots, not to mention the “finding a ship” parallel.
