His graphic role as Renton, the Edinburgh junkie in Trainspotting planted Scotland's Ewan McGregor unforgettably in the minds of filmgoers. Since then, his versatile roles have included the lovesick singing poet Christian in Moulin Rouge, a disgruntled cleaning man who takes his boss' daughter hostage in A Life Less Ordinary, and Ranger Spec. Danny Grimes in Black Hawk Down. This week sees the return of the light-saber brigade with the release of Star Wars Episode II: Attack of The Clones, in which McGregor reprises his Obi-Wan Kenobi role.
