Sir Patrick Stewart kicked off the role of Professor Xavier in the original X-Men series with James McAvoy stepping in to play his younger self in the follow-ups.

While Stewart is bald in the earlier films, Professor X had a full head of hair as a younger man. The time has come for McAvoy to get into full character.

Director Bryan Singer has shared a snap of the Scottish actor taking a seat in the barber chair:
