Their relationship turned frosty in 2018 – but Ewan McGregor and his daughter Clara appear to have put the past behind them as they posed up a storm on the set of their very first film together. The Star Wars actor and his lookalike offspring were all smiles behind the scenes on Ewan's latest movie The Birthday Cake. Sharing some snaps on Instagram, Clara, 23, and her dad looked like they had a fit of the giggles as they joked around in-between takes on the mob crime drama.

Clara has three sisters: Jamyan, 18, Esther, 17, and Anouck, who is eight. Her mum is production designer Eve Mavrakis who met Ewan on the set of TV show Kavanaugh QC. Clara made her acting aspirations clear in an interview with Playboy magazine in 2018 following the premiere of her first short film, although she also admitted that she tried to deny it for years.

She said: "All throughout high school I really turned my back on acting. I said I was going to be a photographer, I'm going to be behind the lens. At 12-years-old, I moved to LA, which is all Hollywood and all I was asked is, 'Are you going to do what your dad does?' I was rebelling."

Her parents split up in 2017 and divorced in 2018. After their separation, Ewan began dating his Fargo co-star Mary Elizabeth Winstead, which caused tension between Ewan and Clara. At the time, Clara commented on an Instagram post from her verified account and labelled her dad's new girlfriend "a piece of trash". However, she has since spoken about how she will always love her dad and that her comment wasn't her "finest moment."
