James began his career with small parts in projects like the World War One drama Regeneration, and the successful HBO series, Band of Brothers, produced by Tom Hanks and Steven Spielberg. He came to international prominence when he played Leto Atreides II in the Emmy Award-winning mini-series, Children of Dune. He went on to play the role of Dan Foster in the BAFTA-winning BBC ONE political drama series, State of Play, which became one of the most successful UK TV exports of recent years. In 2004, he starred on the big screen in Stephen Fry's comedy Bright Young Things. James' popularity grew with the TV series Shameless, which began in the UK in early 2004, and for which he was nominated in the Best Comedy Newcomer category at the 2004 British Comedy Awards.

Also in 2004, James took his first lead role in a feature film in Rory O'Shea Was Here (UK title: Inside I'm Dancing), directed by Damian O'Donnell. He was nominated in the British Actor of the Year category at the 2005 London Critics Circle Awards for his performance.

In 2005, James McAvoy took on the iconic role of Mr. Tumnus the Faun in The Chronicles of Narnia: The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe, which became a global phenomenon, making over $700 million worldwide. He then played the lead in the award-winning The Last King of Scotland alongside Forest Whitaker. For his portrayal of a Scottish doctor in Uganda who becomes close to the dictator Idi Amin, James was nominated for a BAFTA, a BIFA (British Independent Film Award), a European Film Award and a London Critics Circle Award. In late 2006, James starred in Starter for Ten and he went on to play the male lead in Becoming Jane opposite Anne Hathaway.

James's next film, Atonement, opened the 2007 Venice Film Festival to a rapturous standing ovation. James's performance as a Cambridge graduate falsely accused of rape enthused critics and audiences alike and gained him Golden Globe and BAFTA Best Actor nominations and won him Best Actor awards at the London Film Critics Circle Awards and the Empire Awards.

In Summer 2008, James was seen in the lead role of Wesley Gibson in the graphic novel adaptation, Wanted, alongside Morgan Freeman and Angelina Jolie and directed by Timur Bekmambetov. The film was a smash hit and made over $330m worldwide.
