Ewan McGregor first attended the Sundance Film Festival in 1995 for his starring role in Danny Boyle’s Shallow Grave alongside fellow newcomers Kerry Fox and Christopher Eccleston.
“I like the fact I get to work on different kinds of projects, and I’m not concerned about if it’s a studio picture or an independent picture. I think [that] leads to quite interesting work and choices. That makes me happy. More of the same please.” – Ewan McGregor
