Ewan McGregor is a Scottish actor, best known for his roles in Trainspotting, Moulin Rouge!, Lo imposible and a string of Star Wars sequels.
The 51 year old was born in Perth, Scotland to Carole Diane and Charles James Steward. Both were teachers but it was really his uncle who inspired a lifelong commitment to acting. His uncle, Denis Lawson has appeared in the Star Wars trilogy as Wedge Antilles. You may also recognise him from The Merchant of Venice and BBC One’s Jekyll.
McGregor has been praised for his compassion after condemning the ‘horrendous’ racism his Star Wars co-star, Moses Ingram received on Instagram. Ingram took to instagram to highlight some of the racist comments and messages she had received since the show was dropped on Disney + on Friday 27 May.
Besides his stellar acting career, McGregor appears to be a genuinely really nice guy. His impressive and sustained acting career has earned him fame and fortune. But how much fortune exactly?
According to Celebrity Net Worth, McGregor is worth $25 million. His accumulated wealth has followed a similar trajectory to other A listers.
Like all good actors, he started off at drama school. He attended Guildhall School of Music and Drama and it was during this time that he began a leading role in a Channel 4 series, Lipstick on Your Collar. And that was before he had even graduated.
Oozing with talent from a young age, McGregor can count many accolades to his name. From a Golden Globe Award, a Primetime Emmy award to the BAFTA Britannia Humanitarian Award and of course, an all-important OBE.
To match his celebrity status, in 2002 he purchased a property in LA for $1.9 million. After a complicated divorce, he relinquished this house to his now ex-wife. Now he lives in Topanga Canyon with new wife, Mary Elizabeth Winstead.
Given his elite celebrity status and capacity to do good, could he be moving towards ‘national treasure’ status? Keep your eyes peeled.
