Sean Bean
 
I've seen a couple of Sean Bean movies and programmes lately the most recent movie was Black Death. This guy is actually quite a good actor.
What do you guys think about him and can you recommend any movies with him in?

Glowbot 01-03-2011 15:35

He was good in Goldeneye :D
I actually thought he would be a bigger actor than he ever was.

Pyramidbread 01-03-2011 15:41

*Hopes Sean returns to Silent Hill for the second film, with a bigger role*

I like Sean Bean too.

Recently watched - Far North - Black Death and Ronin (Again) with him in.
He was great as Sharpe too.

I'll love him forever for voicing Martin in The Elder Scrolls: Oblivion IV :D

Sharpe... at least 30 hours of Sean shooting the French.
What is there not to like :P

I liked him in Flightplan, Don't Say a Word.

Loved him in Sharpe.

Just watching Ronin, again, he's great in this going head to head with DeNiro.

Love this film.

I can't actually think of anything that he hasn't been good in - even films that are not very good, he still is good and usually stands out for his acting. As the other poster said, I am surprised he is not bigger than he is, he definitely deserves better and bigger roles.

stvn758 27-04-2011 00:10

Considering the amount of work he gets he certainly isn't short of a few quid, is he. The voice overs on adverts must be worth a fortune alone.

I liked him in When Saturday Comes
http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0114917/

Radiomaniac 27-04-2011 03:20

Sorry to be the exception, but I can't stand him and think he's the same in everything he's in. :o

Fair point.

Having seen him in Sharpe I was a bit worried about him in Lord of the Rings.

However, he brought elements to Boromir that I hadn't seen in the book.

I realised with Sharpe that he's very much playing a character between two stools - raised from the ranks he is awkward with either group and this often shows by his good playing.

Good actor.

Oh no doubt he is reasonably well off by now. I feel he should be earning more per film by now, I mean other actors probably make 10 times more than what he makes, yet are no better than he is.

I mean look at Robert Pattinson he must be getting a fairly decent wage per film now, and yet he couldn't act his way out of a paper bag, in fact I doubt he could convincingly portray being trapped in a paper bag.

Big fan of Sean Bean. Saw Black Death at the cinema, whilst the film was alright, nothing special, I thought it was one of his best performances.

Button62 28-04-2011 01:24

He was hot to trot in Lady Chatterley's Lover with Joely Richardson.

It's a fantastic portrayal of an officer up from the ranks! I study the Napoleonic Wars for my MA, my thesis is on the 95th Rifles so it's of particular interest to me! He wouldn't have been accepted properly by the officers and the men would often shun him for being made up. It's a lonely life.

Think he's pretty good in Game of Thrones, he's really great at the rugged personalities!

Might be something to do with the fact that he's TERRIFIED of flying (at least in a helicopter) so maybe he's a bit limited... who'd'a'thot :eek:

Sorry to shatter anyone's illusions about his rugged manliness... :D

Get a boat then - if he is rich this shouldn't a huge problem :)

Sean Bean is an excellent actor, and very under-rated, imo.

Some of my favourite characters he has played:

Richard Sharpe
Alec Trevelyan
Spence
Boromir

His current performance of Eddard Stark (Game of Thrones) is brilliant.
