Scottish actor Ewan McGregor will be honoured with an award in tribute to his career at the San Sebastian film festival in Spain next month, festival organisers said Tuesday.

The 41-year-old "Star Wars" star will receive the festival's Donostia Award, "awarded to a great film personality in recognition for their work and career", at a ceremony on September 27, they said in a statement.

"Often hailed as one of the finest actors of his generation, Ewan McGregor consistently captivates audiences with a diverse line-up of roles across a multitude of genres, styles and scope," it said.

"McGregor's career has been highlighted by a continuous string of bold and daring performances, from his breakthrough role as the heroin-addicted Mark Renton in Irvine Welsh's Trainspotting, to the legendary Obi-Wan Kenobi in Star Wars saga, to starring opposite Nicole Kidman in the musical Moulin Rouge."

The actor's latest film "The Impossible", a drama based on a true story of a family's fight to survive during the 2004 tsunami, will have its European premiere at the festival after the ceremony to award McGregor the prize.

US actress Glenn Close won the Donostia Award last year. Previous recipients of the prize include Julia Roberts, Ian McKellen, Richard Gere and Woody Allen.

The 60th edition of the San Sebastian film festival, the oldest and most prestigious event of its kind in the Spanish speaking world, will take place between September 21 and 29.

"The situation here is very tense, there are major dangers lying ahead," said Nikolai Dudoglu, mayor of Gagauzia's capital city Comrat.
