Ewan McGregor may have been the one promoting his new film, but it was his eldest daughter Clara's time to shine on Wednesday night. The 20-year-old appeared happy and poised as she joined her famous father at the premiere of Miles Ahead at The Cinema City in New York.

The Scottish actor proudly walked the red carpet with Clara, and wrapped his arm around her shoulders as they posed for photographers. Ewan gave a nod to his Scottish roots in eye-catching tartan trousers and a black blazer, while his daughter opted for a stylish black playsuit and ankle boots for her red carpet debut.

With her striking looks and Hollywood connections, Clara could easily turn her hand to acting, but she has previously revealed that she hopes to pursue a career behind the camera as a photographer.

Speaking to the Sunday Mail in 2014, Clara admitted that she had never been tempted to try acting and has instead chosen to study photography in New York.

"Ever since I was little, I had a camera which I would walk around with," she said. "I really enjoyed taking photographs and, as I got older, I felt I could potentially be good at it – and decided to follow through with it."

She added: "My parents have always been very supportive and they've encouraged me to keep working hard on it."

Clara is the eldest daughter of Ewan and his wife Eve Mavrakis, who he has been married to for 21 years. The couple - who are also parents to daughters Esther, Jamyan and Anouk - are notoriously private, and don't often discuss their family life with the press.

However Ewan has admitted he favours an old fashioned approached to parenting, saying: "When it comes to my kids, there are a few simple values I cherish, the same as my parents – what's wrong, what's right, kindness, a solid culture and good manners."
