Asdggdh WRONG BLOG sorry
Honestly James McAvoy did such a good job in that scene when he turns to Roger. Because the uninformed observer may spend the rest of the series thinking he’s just a rogue, anti-establishment academic and shitty dad, the kind of morally grey hero you might find in other works of fiction
But in the moment he sees Roger and stops, and smiles, you can see in his eyes not quite malice, but this sort of feral, fanatical excitement. A predatory look devoid of sympathy or concern, just like Mrs Coulter has.
It was the kind of look that completely turned me. I was ready to reach out and throttle that man. I didn’t think it was possible to convey how much of a monster you can be with a single tiny microexpression.
So we are all in agreement that everyone who said James Mcavoy was a miscast were fucking wrong, yes?
