Kit Harington, the actor who plays Jon Snow in immensely popular fantasy drama Game of Thrones has been confirmed to play “the face of the enemy” in Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare by Activision today.
Infinite Warfare narrative director Taylor Kurosaki said that they’re eager to see Kit play a role other than those he’s known for.
“Our story is about an epic showdown of opposing forces, and Kit immersed himself into the role and truly became the embodiment of the enemy, the Settlement Defense Front”
