I started reading about him. He sent me some articles and more photographs. I read everything. I started falling for Halston’s pictures, and I was like “who is this guy?

Ewan is playing American fashion designer Halston, in Netflix original series set to premiere later this year, and he will also reprise his iconic role as Obi-Wan Kenobi in Disney+ limited series.
