Ewan Goes to Dollywood

FANS of Scots film hunk Ewan McGregor have created a doll of their hero to show how he'd look in Hollywood classics. Sisters Khanada  and Annette Taylor pictured their mini version of Ewan in scenes from movies such as Clockwork Orange, Dracula and Pulp Fiction. They also recreated moments from his hit films Moulin Rouge and Trainspotting and his new war movie Black Hawk Down. And they posted the stunning images on their website, www.theminifacesofewan.com.


Khanada, 34, and Annette, 28, from Jacksonville, Florida, even improved the star's figure for his doll - it was made using Ewan's head from his Star Wars action figure Obi-Wan Kenobi and the body of Barbie beefcake Ken.


Graphic artist Khanada said: "We first noticed Ewan in A Live Less Ordinary and then Episode One: The Phantom Menace. We just adore him, not only because of his talent but because he seems so genuine and kind in real life. We've been working with miniatures as a hobby for over 10 years. A couple of years ago, it seemed to merge with our love of Ewan. We took some photos which turned out great, so we decided to let others see them,"


MiniEwan appears in the infamous Trainspotting scene when his Renton character emerges from a disgusting toilet bowl. He also is pictured sweeping a Nicole Kidman doll off her feet in the musical Moulin Rouge. The sisters have also given their toy star roles in other hits. MiniEwan replaces John Travolta as Samuel L. Jackson's sidekick in Pulp Fiction. He is also dolled up to play Dracula and the chief Droog Alex in A Clockwork Orange.


Khanada said: "It's just good fun. We hope it makes Ewan smile."
