Ewan McGregor Recalls Hilarious Fart Story During Obi-Wan Kenobi And Boba Fett Scene

Acting, eh? What's it all about? You read a few lines, make a few faces and occasionally cut some onions for tears and boom, you've got an Oscar. I know, I know, thank me for the tips later.


Jesting aside, it can be difficult for young actors to fully find the right headspace in which to authentically emote. Often, what you think your face is saying and what it's actually saying are two different things. As somebody with resting bitch face I can attest to this. Unfortunately for me, I don't have Ewan McGregor offering me tips on how to make myself more believable while acting out a scene unlike Daniel Logan, who played alongside McGregor as the young Boba Fett in Star Wars Episode II: Attack Of The Clones.

Both actors have recently been present at Disney's annual Star Wars Celebration talking about the franchise. We spoke to Ewan McGregor about what it was like to work alongside Hayden Christensen (Anakin Skywalker) again during the recent Obi-Wan Kenobi series. Check it out below.



During the 20th Anniversary Celebration of Star Wars Episode II: Attack Of The Clones panel, both actors appeared onstage alongside others like Christensen and Temuera Morrison who played Jango Fett, and shared an amazing anecdote about their first meeting on screen.

As it goes, director George Lucas was having trouble finding the right reaction from the young Logan to seeing Obi-Wan Kenobi for the first time. As McGregor explained, Boba was meant to act with disgust at his first sighting of a Jedi - quite in character when you consider his father is one of the most notorious bounty hunters of the time, and likely had a fair few run-ins with the galactic peacekeepers. This, as it turns out, led to an ingenious piece of advice which McGregor recalled.

"When I come to the door, the first time I meet you, and you open the door, George wanted you to look sort of suspicious of me... So we did a few takes and George was like, 'Get it more suspicious.' I just leaned down to him and I went, 'When I open the door, act like I've done a terrible fart.' He went, 'What?' And I said, 'Just try it!' So the next take, he opened the door and he looked at me and he went [squints face], and it totally worked."


Utterly brilliant. Logan's reaction to the imaginary funk was already pure gold, but knowing the story behind it gives the whole scene an entirely new dimension. A stinky, ripe dimension.
