Ewan McGregor Recalls His First Meeting With George Lucas


The Hollywood Reporter have published a detailed and rather amusing interview with Obi-Wan himself, Ewan McGregor.  In the interview the Scottish actor talks about his time filming Star Wars and remembers the first time he met George Lucas:

Recalling his first meeting with George Lucas, about playing the iconic role of Obi-Wan Kenobi in Star Wars Episode I: The Phantom Menace, he noted: “I had to go to studios in Watford, north of London, where they shot all the Harry Potter movies. I remember going there, meeting George, and being allowed to read the script. I had to read it in the producer’s office — like, literally, being almost locked in with the script, so that it doesn’t get leaked — and then being shown around the sets with George.  There was a great big submarine thing that I end up in with Liam [Neeson] and Jar Jar Binks.  And I remember looking at this huge polystyrene thing [that had been made to look like a] submarine, and there was a cockpit. And I looked at it and I went, ‘Will we go under?’ He looked at me and went, ‘What?’ I said, ‘Will we go underwater with it?’ And he looked at me like I was insane. He said, ‘None of that is real, you know.’ And I went, ‘Oh. Yeah.’ ”

Here's the link to the full interview with videos too.
