Firth: Fight scenes were exhilarating!

Colin Firth has raved about how much he "loved" filming choreographed physical scenes for Kingsman: The Secret Service.

Colin Firth "misses filming fight scenes terribly".

The 54-year-old actor is known for playing the dignified Englishman in countless films, but broke into the action world in his latest movie, Kingsman: The Secret Service. And shooting the heavily physical scenes with trained professionals was a serious thrill for him.

"To actually become a team with those people was utterly exhilarating and I have to say I missed it terribly," he told Access Hollywood. "Once those scenes were done, to go back to the day job of just sitting around pointing my suit at people and talking... it lacked the exhilaration."

Colin was directed by Matthew Vaughn in the action-spy movie, which was based on comic book The Secret Service. He portrayed Harry Hart, a secret service agent who takes a younger agent into the fray.

(oops wrong movie)

And Colin thoroughly enjoyed his foray into the genre.

"I started to love it!" he gushed. "I started to love the collaboration and the camaraderie, people whose history and whose skills were completely alien to mine."
