James McAvoy On Playing Charles Xavier in X-Men: First Class
Actor James McAvoy talks about his portrayal of young Prof X in X-Men's prequel and how he might live up to Patrick Stewart!
James McAvoy, who is portraying young Charles Xavier in "X-Men: First Class",a prequel to the original trilogy that will be directed by Matthew Vaughn, talks about his portayal of the character and how it will differ from Patrick Stewart's:
"I'm basically going to try and bury Patrick's performance (LAUGH)."
McAvoy talks about the fun behind the prequels:
"I think the fun about these films, when you go back and you either reboot or do a prequel, is you get to see how people became who they are. That means that you have to do them differently and by the end of the movie you have to do them the same way. The interesting journey is what happens to them, what changes them, what makes them evolve — not just mutate, but emotionally and psychologically evolve."
"They wanted me to have hair," he said. "They didn't want me to go bald and I walk as well."
"I would suggest by the end of the movie and the start of the next movie, it'll be more like what Patrick does," said McAvoy, adding, "Or maybe not. Maybe it will still be in a period of flux, if there is a new movie.""
"X-Men: First Class" will open June 2011.
