Ewan McGregor appeared on the Graham Norton Show and hilariously reveals how little he remembers of his cameo in the recent Star Wars follow-up film The Force Awakens.
For those who haven’t seen the film, it really is the shortest of appearances — McGregor says only one line and he himself doesn’t show up at all. “It was obviously a very last minute thing,” McGregor stated of his involvement. “I mean, J.J. Abrams emailed me out of the blue, he got my email address from someone and emailed. But it was about 2 weeks before the film was released.”
In an interview with Entertainment Weekly, Abrams also shared the details of McGregor’s cameo. “We asked Ewan McGregor to come in and do the line,” he said. “And he was awesome and we were very grateful. He was incredibly sweet and handsome, and all that stuff.”
