Why we love James McAvoy
By Jess Meaden
James McAvoy is currently wowing audiences in Jamie Lloyds revival of cult classic The Ruling Class, after their successful collaboration during Trafalgar Transformed Season 1 in 2013 where James tackled the title role in Shakespeare's Macbeth.
Whilst audiences are flocking to Trafalgar Studios in their numbers and rave reviews continue to flood in from the critics, weve been thinking about all the reasons why we love Mr McAvoy and you wont be surprised to hear that there are a LOT of them.
Weve scoured the internet, pored over Wikipedia and searched every nook and cranny of YouTube to find the very best reasons to love this BAFTA Award-winning gent. Its a tough job, but someones got to do it...
He can singOscar Award winner turned Karaoke King. We honestly didnt think that Copacabana could ever make a come-back, but after seeing this were rethinking where we stand on that.
He can danceWe can already hear the phone call from Strictly producers. If acting doesnt work, weve found his new calling.
He can bakeMove aside Paul Hollywood, cos according to highly reliable and trusted source Wikipedia, James weekend job as a wee lad was working for a local bakery in his hometown, Port Glasgow.
His bread may not have risen to stardom, but he sure did.
He can wear it allFrom fancy dress to faun-cy dress, he works them all. Were just going to sit back and let the outfits do the talking..
He doesnt disappoint the fansTheyre both Scottish, theyre both partial to a spot of motor biking, but they arent the same person right? Wrong. If a fan mistakes him for Ewan MacGregor and subsequently asks for his autograph, he signs that paper. What a trouper.
He can ride a unicycle. We repeat, he can ride a unicycle.
Is there anything he cant do?The answer is no. There is absolutely nothing that this man cannot do.
