James McAvoy

Born April 21, 1979

James McAvoy is a product of Scotland that we are glad got exported to our shores. He is such a good actor. Whether he is a superhero or a villain you realize that McAvoy is putting everything out there with each and every scene.

Noteworthy

  • The Lion, The Witch, and the Wardrobe – I thought that Wanted was the first time that I had seen McAvoy in a movie. I was wrong. He was MR Tumnus, the Faun. Who knew?
  • Wanted – Love this movie. McAvoy was officially added to my list of actors that look like they could pull off the violence they were enacting. He moves well, if that makes any sense.
  • Prof X – X-men: First Class / X-Men: Days of Future Past / X-Men: Apocalypse – Not the biggest fan of this run of movies but I do like McAvoy as Prof X. In particular, he is splendid in First Class.
  • Victor Frankenstein – If you have not watched he and Radcliffe as Victor and Igor you are missing out. This is my new favorite version of this story.
  • Split – Haven’t watched it yet. It is on the list. I really can’t wait.
  • Atomic Blonde – Watched this recently. Gritty, Cold War era spy movie. McAvoy is gravely and wonderful.

I was brought up by my grandparents. So people go, ‘Oh, what was that like? That must have been hard.’ And you go: ‘No, it wasn’t.’ It was just completely actually normal because the new norm seems to be whatever you make of it, doesn’t it?
