Knutsford Guardian: James McAvoy is to take on the role of Macbeth James McAvoy is to take on the role of Macbeth

The Last King Of Scotland star James McAvoy is taking on the role of the country's most famous theatrical monarch after announcing he will appear in a new production of Macbeth.

The award-winning actor, famous for roles in films such as X-Men and Atonement, will play the title character of Shakespeare's Scottish play on stage at the Trafalgar Studios in central London next year.

Director Jamie Lloyd said it would be one of a season of "politically-charged power plays on the doorstep of Whitehall".

James, seen on television in Shameless and Early Doors, was last on stage in 2009 in Three Days Of Rain which was also directed by Lloyd.
