Other than this medieval drama series the actor has done movies like “Silent Hill: Revelation,” “Pompeii,” and “How to Train Your Dragon 2,” which helped hi gain popularity among the audience. Now, the actor is going to add an another feather to his profile with the release of his upcoming movie “MI-5” in which he played the role of a spy. Continue reading to find out what Harington said about the film and his character.
As revealed, the heartthrob of many has been assigned to track down his senior who went missing after he was charged with escaping a terrorist from his custody in the film and to its surprise Harington quoted this storyline as the reason behind doing this film.
While speaking more about the film and his role, Harington said, “I said to my agent, “I want to do something different, I want to do something set today. We looked around and this came up. It’s very much now, very much modern, and that was something I hadn’t done pretty much ever, really. At drama school, I was doing loads of Ibsen or Shakespeare. War Horse, my first play, was a World War I piece. I’ve done medieval stuff and gladiator roles. I’ve never really played a role where I was a modern man, so to speak. So that was a big draw for me,” revealed Entertainment Weekly.
Harington called the film’s story as the classic and how much he enjoyed playing the character of a spy. He placed his character as different from the other agent based movies and revealed about his character’s emotional approach, following modern life-style with long hair and scuff on his face.
Harrington also revealed about his liking the location of the shoot as London, since always he has a liking for this place and when he came to know about that shooting will be done in London, he got pretty much excited about the same.
On the question of whether he finds himself suitable for Bond movie, the actor with a laugh said that he really loved the way Daniel Craig acted in the 007 agent movies but not sure that the makers will come to him for the role. Only the lucky one will get Bond’s role offer and he really wish that Craig will do another movie too.
Well, even we don’t know whether Kit Harington will get an offer from the Bond makers but one thing is sure that his fans would love to see him in the role of Jon Snow always. Just like he loved the way Daniel Craig acted in Bond films, fans loved the way he acted with a sword in hand in “Game of Thrones.” As far as the new movie of the actor is concerned we really love to see him in a new avatar, so, let us wish him good luck for the same.
