Denis Lawson has gone through a good part of his professional career since 1977 being thought of simply as X-Wing fighter pilot Wedge Antilles, a part he first played in Star Wars and reprised (with more screen time each time) in The Empire Strikes Back and Return Of The Jedi. The character is notable for being one of the few X-Wing pilots to survive the various battles.Lawson has done far more than a bit part in a major movie, however, having had a steady career in theater, television, and film. He co-starred with Peter Riegert and Burt Lancaster in Bill Forsyth's Local Hero, and later headed up a pair of miniseries, The Justice Game and The Justice Game II: The Lady From Rome, as affluent Glasgow lawyer Dominic Rossi. As the '90s drew to a close, much was made of the fact that Lawson is the uncle of Ewan McGregor, the actor cast as the young Obi-Wan Kenobi in the trilogy of Star Wars prequels.
