Between filming seasons of “Game of Thrones,” Kit Harington has kept busy by embarrassing himself in “Pompeii” and repeating the same mistakes in “Seventh Son.” Now, he lends his likeness to the “Call of Duty” video game series for its latest installment, “Infinite Warfare.” Better luck this time?
Harington is set to inhabit the role of SetDef Admiral Salen Kotch of the Olympus Mons, which, according to the game’s official Facebook page, might be his darkest yet.
Three images of Harington on set were released earlier this month, featuring a behind-the-scenes look at the motion capture process. And no, even a hideous mo-cap suit can’t dim his appeal.
The game’s narrative director, Taylor Kurosaki, told GameInformer that Harington’s character will be the player’s main antagonist, who has a “ton of experience” and “a vendetta against your entire way of life.”
“[Harington] saw it as an opportunity to be part of this compelling narrative, which is what excited him, and the chance to play a villain,” Kurosaki explained.
“He took time with us to meet, discuss the role, what the character represents, and ensure it was right for him,” he added. “That said, inventing an enemy is an incredibly difficult process. To what lengths should the actor go in playing this role, but also in communicating to the player who this enemy is?”
