HOL­LY­WOOD lead­ing man Ewan McGre­gor has been spot­ted film­ing at Brunel Uni­ver­sity in Uxbridge .

The Scot­tish ac­tor who broke on to the scene with his role in Trainspot­ting has also starred in Star Wars films and Moulin Rouge.

He was spot­ted walk­ing through the cam­pus on Mon­day (Septem­ber 11) and is thought to be film­ing his 2018 re­lease Zoe.

It comes days af­ter fel­low Brit Hol­ly­wood star Tom Hardy was spot­ted film­ing in Lon­don.

The fu­tur­is­tic film looks at two re­searchers, played by McGre­gor and Léa Sey­doux, who are work­ing in a lab to cre­ate tech­nol­ogy to im­prove and per­fect ro­man­tic re­la­tion­ships.

The film also stars pop singer Christina Aguil­era, Rashida Jones, who starred in the US ver­sion of The Of­fice as well and Parks and Recre­ation, and English ac­tor Theo James.

Twit­ter user @an­na­loguer told the Gazette she also saw “slightly men­ac­ing-look­ing gold-faced men in boiler suits” dur­ing the film­ing.

A Brunel Uni­ver­sity spokesman con­firmed McGre­gor was in­deed film­ing at the uni­ver­sity but could not give more de­tails.

The uni­ver­sity was fa­mously used as a lo­ca­tion in Stan­ley Kubric’s A Clock­work Orange and has been used in film­ing reg­u­larly since then in­clud­ing mul­ti­ple episodes of In­spec­tor Morse.

The uni­ver­sity can also be spot­ted in Jud­waa 2, a Bol­ly­wood se­quel due to re­lease later this month.
