Kingsman: The Golden Circle has been tasked with introducing a slew of new characters to the world first established by Kingsman: The Secret Service in 2014.
While the British Kingsman spies are well established by now, The Golden Circle will bring an American equivalent, of sorts, to this cinematic world. The group is called the Statesman, with a slew of talented A-list actors rounding out the bunch. Among them is Game of Thrones alum Pedro Pascal who will be playing the role of Agent Whiskey.
While Pascal couldn’t share too many spoiler-heavy details of his character, he was ready to open up about the action sequences with which he will be a part of while speaking to ComicBook.com.
“My character’s extremely, extremely physical and very prop heavy. I know how to use a lot of different things as weapons. That’s what I’ll say,” Pascal said, adding, “I’m a handy man!”
Last month, during the Kingsman: The Golden Circle panel at San Diego Comic Con, Pascal went into more detail about his very specific weapon of a choice. “I was in training with some cowboy experts and learned how to use the lasso,” Pascal said. “That was my favorite bit, the whip. How many people out there have cracked a whip properly?…You can injure yourself, that’s for sure.”
“I was good at the whip. It’s my specialty.”
“Kingsman: The Secret Service” introduced the world to Kingsman – an independent, international intelligence agency operating at the highest level of discretion, whose ultimate goal is to keep the world safe. In “Kingsman: The Golden Circle,” our heroes face a new challenge. When their headquarters are destroyed and the world is held hostage, their journey leads them to the discovery of an allied spy organization in the US called Statesman, dating back to the day they were both founded. In a new adventure that tests their agents’ strength and wits to the limit, these two elite secret organizations band together to defeat a ruthless common enemy, in order to save the world, something that’s becoming a bit of a habit for Eggsy…”
