Ewan McGregor

Ewan McGregor From Junkie to JediEwan McGregor From Junkie to Jedi This in-depth biography charts this Scottish actor's phenomenal rise to stardom. His appearances in the three new Star Wars movies as the young Obi Wan Kebobi should see Ewan become one of the world's most famous actors. His screen career started with his first speaking role in Dennis Potter's TV series Lipstick On Your Collar. He then starred in Shallow Grave, and played anti-hero Renton in the screen adaptation of Irvine Welsh's cult book Trainspotting, which proved to be one of the most successful British movies of recent years.

Long Way Round In this highly entertaining book, fellow film actors and bike enthusiasts Ewan McGregor and Charley Boorman travel 20,000 miles around the world by motorbike. They will encounter many troublesome situations on the way, ranging from extreme and threatening weather to impenetrable terrain, and will face challenges such as caviar fishing in the Caspian sea, wrestling with the Mongolian Olympic team and riding with the Canadian Mounties. Whilst throwing themselves enthusiastically into the culture of each new country - from Alaska to Mongolia, from Canada to Kazakhstan - the two friends will also have to rely on each other's good humour, as the journey tests their relationship and their stamina to the limits. Long Way Round is the action-packed account of the trip and a true portrait of friendship in extremis - as irreverent, engaging and articulate as Ewan McGregor and Charley Boorman themselves.
