Denis Lawson played rebel fighter pilot WEDGE ANTILLES in the original Star Wars movies, but when he learnt his nephew had been approached to play OBI-WAN KENOBI in the three prequel movies he advised him to turn down the role.
McGregor, who has been critical of the technically intensive filming processes of the sci-fi series, says, "He hates Star Wars. He hates being in it. He hates the fan mail he still receives to this day.
"And he only did a couple of days on each film. It hasn't done me any harm, I don't think."15/01/2004 13:53
