It’s not just Dad who looks the part in the movies, says Ewan’s girl

- By Lor­raine Kelly

HER fa­ther is a Hol­ly­wood star, so when Clara McGre­gor mod­elled for a Chanel fash­ion shoot it made sense to do it at the movies.

The daugh­ter of Trainspot­ting and Star Wars ac­tor Ewan McGre­gor mod­elled Chanel dresses and jew­ellery for Coveteur magazine at the Met­ro­graph Cin­ema in New York.

The Vogue ‘It-girl’ of 2017, whose mother is French pro­duc­tion de­signer Eve Mavrakis, landed a con­tract last year with Wil­helmina Mod­els, one of the world’s big three model agen­cies. But she dis­closed that her long-term dream is to fol­low her fa­ther into movies. ‘I’ve al­ways loved film,’ said the 21-year-old, who is still study­ing to be a pro­fes­sional pho­tog­ra­pher at New York Univer­sity’s Tisch School of the Arts. ‘Grow­ing up, my par­ents al­ways showed me movies and I com­pletely fell in love with it. I was also lucky enough to get on to the set of some films and see how it was made be­hind the cam­era, and it all be­came re­ally fas­ci­nat­ing to me. To me act­ing is my top pri­or­ity.’
