They are referring to Ewan McGregor who played Obi-Wan Kenobi in Episode 1. Dennis Lawson is Ewan's uncle.

This because the actor who played Wedge, Denis Lawson, was actually British. He is Ewan McGregor's uncle, in fact!

Part of this accent problem is that Wedge was actually played by two different actors. In A New Hope he was played by Jack Klaff, and in the other two he was played by Denis Lawson. It still doesn't explain why he has no accent in The Empire Strikes Back, though.

Actually, Coldfrye, you're incorrect about Wedge being played by two different actors. Denis Lawson plays him in all 3 films. Watch the end credits for them, or look them up on-line. Use your freaking brain, you lugnut!

Huh? I've watched the movie a million times and Leia never had a British accent in any scene.

Ah - Do not insult the British. Denis Lawson is indeed Scottish but Princess Leia is not British at all. In fact virtuallu evry single actor in the whole film is British except for her, Luke, Han, Biggs and Admiral Motti.

Most of the cast is English, I should know because I lived in London for half my life, my grandpa played in A New Hope, his name is Drewe Henley (AKA Red Leader).

I don't know where he's from. And I can't remember exactly what his full name is (I think it's Dennis Lawson), but the actor who plays Wedge is actually, guess who... an uncle of Ewan McGregor (Obi-Wan Kenobi). That may explain the accent.

You guys are complaining about a small scene in the final movie?!?!?! What about the fact that Leia is a prissy British aristocrat type, accent and all in the first movie's meeting with her captors but as soon as she is rescued and all throughout the other films she has no british accent at all? what gives?

Actually, in several interviews & "making of" shows, the actors from Star Wars have all commented on how they used to give George a rough time about the way the lines were written. Carrie was quoted, referring to her character's stilted dialog, as saying: "How do you say lines like, 'I recognized your foul stench when I was brought on board' without an accent?" Harrison is just quoted as saying, "You can't SAY this crap, you can only WRITE it" (or something along those lines)

Alec Guiness played Obi Won in Episode 4-6, but the younger version of Obi Won was played by Ewan McGregor (Episode 1-2 not sure about 3 yet)
