McAvoy Is Child Of Dune

James McAvoy, the Scottish actor who plays Leto II in the SCI FI Channel's upcoming miniseries sequel Frank Herbert's Children of Dune, told SCI FI Wire about his role as the son of Paul Atreides (Alec Newman). "Leto II is the grandson of Duke Leto, who first came to Arrakis to take over the Spice production for the empire as a service to the then-emperor," McAvoy said. "[The Dukeís] son, Paul Atreides, then proceeded to take the empire down and take over Spice production for his own, thus making himself the emperor."

Leto IIólike his aunt, Alia (Daniela Amavia), and twin sister, Ghanima (Jessica Brooks)ówas born with all of the memories of his ancestors, McAvoy said. "So he's got a wealth of knowledge and a bank of knowledge, some of which he can access," he said. "He can just call up things as he likes, some of which are buried very deeply. They also have an influence on him as well as him having access to them. He has to control them, because it can become a madness and just noise inside his head, which would drive anyone crazy."

The miniseries Children of Dune is based on Herbert's second and third novels in the Dune saga, Dune Messiah and Children of Dune, which McAvoy said he first read as a teenager. "It's so rich, and it's a real metaphysical [series]," he said. "It's really questioning where humanity is going, and is there a place for the way we perceive things now? Does that have to remain the same? Is anything constant? The world is constantly evolving, as is humanity. It's really about evolution and taking charge of humanity's next step."

Children of Dune debuts at 9 p.m. ET/PT March 16, 2003.
