Celebrity birthdays: 31st March – you share your birthday with Ewan McGregor and Christopher Walken

Happy Birthday! May the force be with you on your special day


Date: 31 March 


You share your birthday with… Ewan McGregor

Most famous for… being skilled with a lightsaber as Obi-Wan Kenobi and singing powerful ballads alongside Nicole Kidman in Moulin Rouge

Today, why not… to channel your inner Jedi and watch Ewan, Graham Norton and Chris O’Dowd battle it out with lightsabers.

Or…crank this medley up and belt out the lyrics as loud as you can. Go ahead. Ewan would be proud. 

You also share your birthday with the legendary Christopher Walken who’s still just as busy as ever at the age of 71. He won an Academy Award for this role in the 1978 film The Deer Hunter, but he’s probably most famous for his frequent appearances on the US comedy sketch show Saturday Night Live. In fact, Christopher Walken only has one recommendation to make your birthday even better, and that’s more cowbell.

Also born on 31 March: Jessica Szohr, Al Gore
