Ewan McGregor’s Career
Ewan McGregor was born in Perth, Scotland on March 31, 1971. He went to an academy where his father taught as a young boy in Scotland, however, it wasn’t until he left school at the age of 16 that he got his start in theatre.
At 16 McGregor worked as a stagehand at Perth Repertory Theatre. During his time as a stagehand he studied a foundation course at Kirkcaldy College of Technology and two years later he moved to London to begin studying drama at¬†Guildhall School of Music & Drama.
Six months before he graduated Guildhall McGregor landed his first role in a television series called “Lipstick on Your Collar.” And, just six years later, in 1999 McGregor scored what would be one of the biggest roles of his career.
McGregor played the role of Obi-Wan Kenobi¬†in “Star Wars” episodes one, two and three. Once the trilogy of films were over McGregor went on to play smaller roles in films, acting alongside big names like Johnny Depp and Emma Watson.
The “Star Wars” hero has seen a lot of success through his role in the cultish science fiction films but where else has he earned cash? What is Ewan McGregor’s net worth?
Ewan McGregor’s Net Worth
Ewan McGregor’s net worth sits at an astounding $35 million. The majority of his earnings come from his role as Obi-Wan. His role in the “Star Wars” films has made him known¬†throughout¬†the world. It isn’t the only thing contributing to his estimate of wealth though.
His net worth is greatly affected by the assets McGregor holds as well. The McGregor family owns a lavish mansion in London that is valued at millions of dollars. He also likes to drive (and ride around in) nice, fast cars, like his McLaren.
Additionally McGregor has earned a decent amount of money from endorsements with¬†Davidoff Adventure cologne and Belstaff apparel. However, he has not gained a ton of money from endorsements. In fact, outside of the roles he lands, McGregor prefers to spend his time quietly at home with his wife and two children.
In 2017 McGregor will appear in the Disney’s live action “Beauty & the Beast” as Lumiere. The 45-year-old actor shows no signs of slowing his career down any time soon so you’ll be able to count on Ewan McGregor’s net worth continuing to climb in the years to come.
