Star Wars icon Ewan McGregor surprises singer Sam Fender in Berlin

By Abbie Meehan

Scottish actor Ewan McGregor made a long-time Star Wars fan's night in Sam Fender, as he posed for a photo with the Geordie singer.

The Obi-Wan Kenobi actor appeared in a photo with Hayden Christensen, who played Anakin Skywalker (turned Darth Vader), and the 'Hypersonic Missiles' singer.

Sam posted the photo on his social media, as his band joined in on the Star Wars love-in, as he captioned it: "As a huge Star Wars fan I had a total full circle moment yesterday, we went on @latenightberlin and met Obi Wan Kenobi and Anakin Skywalker!!!

Fans flocked to Sams replies on Twitter to joke about the galactic meeting, and congratulate him on realising his childhood dream.

One Twitter user wrote: "Did you say the magic words when meeting Ewan?", in reference to Ewan's iconic "Hello there" line when confronting General Grevious.
