Ewan and Clara are starring in their first film together

Clara has three sisters: Jamyan, 19, Esther, 18, and Anouck, who is nine. 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."
