Kit Harington talks about about his up-coming movie "Spooks: The Greater Good" in an interview on May 2. The "Game of Thrones" actor plays a MI5 operative, Will Crombie, in the big screen version of the hit TV show. (Watch the trailer below.)

“I'm stepping into the shoes of some actors I really admire like Matthew Macfadyen.” The 28-year-old said, according to The Daily Star. Harington also said that he was never not going to take a role because there was pressure behind it. He added that he preferred having "pressure behind something."

The actor, who plays Jon Snow in HBO's "Game of Thrones," also said that he couldn't always run around with a cloak and sword. Harington said that there were a lot of running in the movie and admitted that he enjoyed the "contemporary" fight scenes.

The Independent reported that Harington shot all his own stunts in the movie himself and almost got into an accident. According to the report, the actor revealed there was a scene where his head was supposed to smash through a wall, but the wall caved in. He added that actors tend to get "bumps and bruises" in action movies.

The report also states how fans keep screaming , "You know nothing, Jon Snow" at him on the streets. The actor pleads the fans not to yell at him. He also revealed that he never thought "Game of Thrones" would be a show where a catch phrase would be so popular.

Harrington acknowledges that the spy thriller genre is a crowded market and it is impossible not to overlap with the other franchises. The actor said that "Spooks" has got a bit of all the big spy thriller movies including "Jason Bourne," "James Bond" and "Mission Impossible." He also added that the film is very "grounded in reality" like the original "Spooks."

The film centers on the iconic "Spooks" lead character Harry, played by Peter Firth. Malcolm Wynn-Jones will also make a cameo as Hugh Simon. The movie will be directed by Bharat Nalluri and will also feature Jennifer Ehle, Elyes Gabel and Lara Pulver.

"Spooks: The Greater Good" is set to hit theaters in the U.K. on 8 May 2015.
