INTERVIEW: James McAvoy Is a Nerd for His Roles

James McAvoy at NYCC

There has been a lifelong love of James McAvoy for many millennials. From his role as Mr. Tumnus in The Chronicles of Narnia: The Lion, The Witch, and the Wardrobe to things like Robbie in Atonement and all the way on to Professor Charles Xavier, McAvoy is no stranger to the nerd space. So when it came to New York Comic-Con, I was excited to talk to the actor who was there to promote season 3 of His Dark Materials.

McAvoy plays Lord Asriel, the estranged father of Lyra and a character that comes in and out of her life in the series in the same way that he does in Philip Pullman’s novels. And McAvoy is really no stranger to adaptations and so at the roundtable for the HBO series, I asked him what has been his favorite part of existing in this fan space as someone who has done a lot of fandom work, especially in novel fandoms, and he shared his own love for the novels and his own fandom in response.
