Publisher's Summary:
Ewan McGregor is the epitome of cool. Starring as the resilient rebellious junkie-hero in the international box-office hit Trainspotting turned Ewan McGregor from a promising young actor into an overnight sensation, youthfu icon, and sex symbol for a new generation. Ewan's impressive looks and keen eye for roles that are both popular and intelligent ensure that his appeal extended beyond a teenage audience. With role in Shallow Grave, Brassed Off, Emma, A Life Less Ordinary, Rogue Trader and Velvet Goldmine, Ewan, still in his twenties, secured his position as one of the world's hottest talents.

Brian Pendreigh brings us the story of this confident, quiet and determined young man from Crieff, Scotland, from his boyhood days acting in church plays and the encouragement from his actor uncle Denis Lawson, to his first major break in Dennis Potter's Lipstick on My Collar. His latest venture as the young Obi-Wan Kenobi in Star Wars: Episode 1 is discussed in full detail and is sure to explode his fan base--appealing to all generations. Ewan McGregor is the facinating story of talent, hard work and luck combining in the right measure to achieve success.
