London: Scottish actor James McAvoy has revealed that he would ditch his lush hair for the role of bald professor Charles Xavier when he returns for the ‘X-Men’ sequel.

The comic book character was bald from youth and in older age has already been played by the famously hairless Sir Patrick Stewart.

“We are still left with the big question: how did he lose his hair?” the Daily Express quoted the actor as saying.

“In the comics it happened when he was very young and when his powers activated. We’ve obviously gone away from that. Now obviously we can’t start the next movie with him bald. We’d be passing up the opportunity for a cool story point.

“I don’t know what it is - we need to come up with something that justifies doing it. Maybe he got some dodgy Australian shampoo?” he added.
