Publisher's Summary:
As a British movie-star who exceptionally talented and phenomenally successful whilst also being a young, hip and a heart-throb, Ewan McGregor is a rare breed. For the first time, Ewan McGregor: From Junkie to Jedi examines Ewan's meteoric rise to stardom, from his humble beginnings in the country town of Crieff, to his position as a major Hollywood star.

His role as Obi Wan Kenobi in the Star Wars film The Phatom Menace is guaranteed to catapult him into the big time. Fresh out of drama school, he scored his first screen role in Dennis Potter's TV series Lipstick on Your Collar in 1993. He then made his film debut in Shallow Grave, the cult-noir thriller followed by the hugely successful Trainspotting which launched his career. Portraying a wasted generation's anti-hero, his shaking soaked face shivered out from thousands of student's walls and Ewan became enshrined in a nation's consciousness. Within a few weeks, the movie had become the second biggest British film of all time.

Dubbed one of the luckiest men in the business, his success seems assured and his place in movie history already guaranteed. Filled with stunning photographs in colour and black and white, Ewan McGregor: From Junkie to Jedi provides an intimate portrait of this engaging and extremely likable star.
