How Professor X Goes Bald In X-Men: Apocalypse, Revealed


On the Graham Norton Show, currently airing on BBC 1, with a guest list including Daniel Radcliffe, Johnny Depp, Benedict Cumberbatch and James MacAvoy, we got a tease as to a certain plot point from the upcoming X-Men: Apocalypse.

Noting that Daniel Radcliffe has shaved his head for Imperium, a film where he plays an FBI agent infiltrating a group of Nazi skinhead, Norton asked MacAvoy about his own head shaving experience for X-Men: Apocalypse. And confirming that we will discover how Professor Xavier goes bald.

Norton asked "Is there a good reason for why he goes bald or is it really dull?

MacAvoy replied "He ends up going through something so horrible and painful that he literally half pulls his hair out half… it falls out" to winces from Graham and the audience. "Maybe or maybe not"

Asked if he should have told the audience that he admitted: "I just sh-t myself because I know, Fox Studios who own me might be angry with me for sharing that."
