James McAvoy net worth: James McAvoy is a Scottish actor who has a net worth of $17 million. And this net worth didn't come from just one or two movies – McAvoy is one of the more prolific actors working in Hollywood and abroad today. His acting debut started at the age of 15 when he appeared in The Near Room. Unlike many young actors, McAvoy didn't feel a passion for acting when he joined the cast of the movie – he claims to have only pursued it after developing a romantic interest in one of his co-stars! From there, he continued to work in bit parts in movies and on TV, and began working on the stage, until he was cast in the critically acclaimed WWII HBO miniseries Band of Brothers. It was only a matter of time before more and more big parts began to come in for McAvoy, who appeared in such projects as the Kirsten Dunst romantic comedy Wimbledon and the BBC dramatic miniseries State of Play.
It was at this point that he got the part that would raise his profile significantly in the United States: A starring role in Disney's The Chronicles of Narnia: The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe. Since then, McAvoy has appeared in everything from the Idi Amin drama/thriller The Last King of Scotland to big comic book movie X-Men: First Class.
