The radical star of Trainspotting and the hottest young member of the "Brit Pack," Ewan McGregor is Scotland's biggest export since Sean Connery. He now explodes into global stardom at the center of the most highly anticipated films in movie history-- the new Star Wars prequels.

Get plugged into the whole story of this dynamic young actor for the new millennium, from his training at London's Guildhall School of Music and Drama to his first big break on British TV.
