We have just moved into a nice, slightly larger house, but we were in a small apartment before,” said James McAvoy before his wife added: “Around April, we have built a makeshift studio in my spare bedroom. Our only spare bedroom that was full of moving stuff was crammed and just full of this recording studio created by James “.
