The panel included stars Colin Firth, Samuel L. Jackson,Taron Egerton, Sophie Cookson, Sofia Boutella , creator Mark Miller and writer Dave Gibbons.
Samuel Jackson mentioned that he arrived on set to begin filming later than the rest of the cast and was actually was shocked that it was Colin Firth in the scenes that the director showed him as Firth seemed like a completely different person.
Jackson’s co-star Colin Firth was definitely on board with the role and exclaimed that it was fun to kick some “arse” on the set. He’s never had to do anything as physical as Kingsman, calling it a “challenge.”
Newcomer Sophie Cookson said that she didn’t read the comics until after she got the role, and let comic book fans know that the while the film is not exactly like the comics, it’s very similar.
