James McAvoy wanted his character to die in 'Filth'
London: James McAvoy feels it was important that his character in crime-drama 'Filth' was killed in an obvious way.
The 34-year-old star said that he was not much concerned about the ending of the movie based on Irvine Welsh's best-selling novel, but wanted his character to be killed, reported Contactmusic.
"I love the fact that he killed himself, I wasn't worried about the ending. I was worried when people were trying to make it a happy ending, there was always talk of 'maybe he should make it', 'or people don't know if he's killed himself or not'," McAvoy said.
The Scottish actor, who featured in 'X-Men', said it was a privilege to work in the big screen adaptation of Welsh's book.
"I think helping to bring Irvine Welsh's abusive, beautiful, nasty and hilarious world onto screen and do it well - it's a privilege," he added.
McAvoy said he was surprised to see the response to the film, which raked in over USD 4 million at the box office.
"When it was made everyone was saying you'll make USD 2 million at the box office, and we'll do well here, but we made over twice the budget," he said.
"I don't really care about the money but it's an indicator of the fact that an independent film managed to get people to come and see it. It means that British film can do it, on its own, it's remarkable. I'm really proud of it, he said.
