James Mcavoy - James Mcavoy Runs With Olympic Torch

Actor James Mcavoy beamed with pride on Friday (08Jun12) as he carried the Olympic torch through his native Scotland.
The Atonement star ran with the famed flame in Glasgow and was watched by hundreds of locals who had lined the route for the event ahead of the London 2012 Games this summer (12).
He tells Britain's Itv News, "The fact that they do something like this and they visit every town and they visit all the different places and everybody can get involved and really feel like its personal to them, I think makes it really special so I'm really honoured to be involved."
Rapper will.i.am, musicians Muse and Melanie Chisholm and actor Matt Smith are among the stars who have also carried the Olympic torch as part of its 70-day journey around the U.K., and Scottish singer Emeli Sande is due to run with the flame on Saturday (09Jun12).
She tells the U.K.'s Daily Record newspaper, "I found out a few days ago in New York that I'm going to be running with the torch and that is really exciting and an honour to do.
"I think that's going to be a really special moment. I'm trying not to think about falling over, the flame going out or my hair going on fire."
