Wedge Antilles is Obi-Wan's uncle!


From a certain point of view...

In terms of the film, there is no relationship between Wedge and Obi-Wan Kenobi, however, in the real world, Dennis Lawson who played Wedge Antilles in the original trilogy is the uncle of a rather famous actor called Ewan McGregor !

Dennis's sister is Ewan's mother.

An interesting aside is that Wedge is the only minor character of the original trilogy to survive all three major battles being Yavin, Hoth and Endor.

I vaguely recall reading somewhere that Lawson turned down the chance to appear in The Force Awakens. I hope he reconsiders.

This page got hit by Reddit - and we learned that Ewan McGregor's brother is an RAF combat pilot and his call sign is Obi 2.

Bad ass.

Some more facts on Wedge.
