Star Trek‘s Benedict Cumberbatch was also seen attending the award ceremony.

“I think it’s going to be quite a dark journey compared to the caddish, almost playboy character that we turned him into in the first movie. I think it will be going through a darker place to ultimately get a sorted Professor X that we’re used to seeing come the third movie. This movie might be a little bit more of a passing through the crucible for him,” James recently shared about his character Professor Charles Xavier in his upcoming film X-Men: Days Of Future Past.

James McAvoy: 'Esquire UK' Feature April 2013

James McAvoy shows off his piercing blue eyes in this brand new feature from Esquire UK‘s April 2013 issue, featuring cover girl Rachel Weisz.

Here is what the 33-year-old Welcome To The Punch actor had to share with the mag:

On being a geek at heart: “I am a nerd but I don’t dive head-first into any fiefdom of nerdiness, except for maybe Star Trek.”

On his new film Welcome to the Punch: “Don’t get me wrong. I love British cinema, but there’s also a place for ostentatious, balls-out entertainment.”

On the skill of playing audiences: “Big year, really, for me, in terms of getting to play somebody that challenges the audience more than I have done in the past. As an actor, you’ve got to try and make the audience like you, even if you’re doing bad things. I quite like that dynamic.”

The full interview appears in the April issue of Esquire UK, on newsstands now, and is also available as a digital edition!
