Ewan McGregor just confirmed that he did have a role in Star Wars: The Force Awakens while making an appearance on The Graham Norton Show on Thursday (April 7).
The 45-year-old actor, who played a young Obi-Wan Kenobi in early Star Wars films, said that his role was pretty small and he doesn’t even remember where he spoke!
“Well hardly, my voice was in it for a second! I recorded a little line in it,” he explained. “I don’t remember where I speak, I have no idea!”
While, Ewan‘s full line was “Rey… these are your first steps,” he explained that Alec Guinness was the one who said “Rey.”
He also added that the line was a very last minute addition, “J.J. Abrams emailed me out of the blue…It was about two weeks before the film was released, so it was obviously sort of last minute.”
