A HAMPTON acting teacher who received the same scholarship as Ewan McGregor is setting up an agency to complement her school for aspiring thespians.
Both Sarah Knight and the Star Wars actor won Laurence Olivier acting scholarships in the UK when they were young stage and film wannabees.
But while the force may have been with McGregor, Knight said she was more than happy to become an acting teacher in Australia.
She came to Melbourne two years ago and has set up the Knight Acting School, run out of a Hampton church hall. The agency, to help find actors and models work, starts next month.
