Eve Mavrakis – Bio, Children and Facts About Ewan McGregor’s Ex-wife

Ewan McGregor is a well-established actor with a deserved acclaim for his role in various film genres, including science-fiction, independent dramas, and musicals but recent trending news about the Scottish actor involves his separation from his wife of over two decades, Eve Mavrakis.

McGregor and his wife had always been role models for most young couples until they proved that even a marriage of many years can suddenly collapse, especially when trust becomes an issue. Here is what you should know about Ewan’s estranged wife.

Who is Eve Mavrakis and How Old is She?

Best known as the wife (now ex-wife) of the Scottish movie star Ewan McGregor, Eve Mavrakis is a French-Greek Jewish production designer born in Dordogne, France, on June 22, 1966. Her parents who are Greek immigrants raised her in the Jewish faith and she spent most of her formative years travelling to different countries like China and France. While there is no exact detail about her educational background, her current endeavours in the entertainment industry prove she has garnered the required education and qualifications necessary for her choice of career before her meeting with the Scottish actor, singer, and director, brought her to fame.

Eve and Ewan’s marriage of about two-decade-long is blessed with four beautiful children namely Clara Mathilde, Jamiyan, Esther Rose and Anouk. While three of the girls are their biological children, the estranged couple adopted Jamiyan from Mongolia in April 2006. Clara, born in February 1996, has a photography site and she studied photography at the New York University Tisch School of the Arts. Despite being very popular personalities, both parents try to keep their daughters away from the spotlight.

She started off as a Chinese interpreter

Records about her career date back to the mid-1980s when she appeared as a Chinese interpreter in an epic war film Empire of the Sun which was directed by Steven Spielberg and released in 1987. She got the role in the acclaimed film following her knowledge of Chinese language and her performance in the film helped to earn her more roles in the industry. In 1988, she worked as an assistant director for Stephen Frears’ Oscar award-winning film, Dangerous Liaisons. These two roles helped her establish a sound foundation for a flourishing career in the entertainment industry.

Why Eve and Ewan McGregor separated

The news about Eve’s separation from Ewan came to the public as a shock. They announced their separation in October 2017, although some sources claim that they were not together since May of the same year, it became clearer after a media buzz about Ewan’s affair with his ‘Fargo’ co-star Mary Elizabeth Winstead. Ewan was seen kissing Winstead at a London cafe. Although Ewan was the one who filed for the divorce, citing “irreconcilable differences”, the news about his public affair was what reportedly infuriated Eve to push on with the separation. According to reports, Eve Mavrakis was the one who welcomed Mary Elizabeth Winstead to the family months earlier.
