Game Of Thrones Star Jon Snow Is The New Man In Spooks
Game of Thrones star Kit Harrington can be seen playing a spy in the new movie Spooks: The Greater Good, which is a re adaptation of the BBC hit drama. His character in the movie needed to come across as a true outsider and an unknown quantity. What the producers didn't know was that the Game of Thrones star had already done some real life undercover work in his career and that too in Glasgow.
Harrington who is now 27 years old revealed that it happened when he was still a student at the Central School of Speech and Drama in London and was required to do a Glaswegian accent., so he went up to Glasgow in order to try and get the accent down. The secret operation was carried out by him and his then girlfriend as they visited the Snaffle Bit pub in Sauchiehall Street. Kit revealed that they both tried to stay in accent throughout their visit and were probably really bad at it but it did help them in going around and soaking up the place.
The shooting of Spooks: The Greater Good mostly took place in Harrington's home town of London. Harrison plays the character of Will Holloway in the movie and represents a new age of espionage that requires high tech as much as low cunning. Harrington can be seen sporting almost the same hair do as he has in the Game of Thrones. It is because he was contractually obligated to not dye or cut his hair.
