NOW: Denis Lawson
After appearing in all three original “Star Wars” films, the Scottish actor went on to star in multiple West End stage productions and acclaimed BBC TV series; in 2005 he was nominated for an Emmy as the lead of the BBC’s adaptation of “Bleak House.” He currently stars in the BBC series "New Tricks." His work in the first “Star Wars” film is said to have inspired his nephew, a 6-year-old named Ewan McGregor, to start acting. McGregor starred in the “Star Wars” prequels as a young Obi-Wan Kenobi. —XFINITY Entertainment Staff (Photo by Michael Buckner/Getty Images)
