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?

Sheffield United are doing that poorly that he might have to play for them again

Sean Bean AKA Seen Been was Richard Sharpe

As mentioned can recommend Sharpe, was in National Treasure and just seen him in The Lost Future, all very good performances.

I went to a talk with Benard Cornwell and he said Paul McGann was originally Sharpe, but badly broke his leg shortly after filming started.

All the shortlisted actors had accepted other projects, and so they had to use this guy called Sean Bean

About 30 episodes later...

Sean Bean AKA Seen Been
Indeed Sulla. He can't have it both ways. His name is either pronounced Seen Been or Shaun Bjorn.

Fortuitous (if true) for all. Paul McGann (injured knee, not broken leg) is a fine actor but Sean quickly made this part his own.

Also fortune in finding Daragh O'Malley to play Harper to perfection (not bad for Harries and Hagman either).

Indeed Sulla. He can't have it both ways. His name is either pronounced Seen Been or Shaun Bjorn.

Indeed.

It's one with which to confuse Americans

Sorry to be the exception, but I can't stand him and think he's the same in everything he's in.
With respect, what have you seen him in? Admittedly, his Sheffield accent can ooze through a little whatever role he's playing, but I think the characters he plays are totally different. He can be thoroughly villainous (Patriot Games, Don't Say a Word), or a strong, decent leader (Sharpe, Game of Thrones), and as Lady Chattersley's lover....well, let's just say he was different again!

Another film I saw again recently which had him in was Troy.

I'm a big fan.

The guy crops up in so many films it's not even funny. Notable ones for me were Outlaw, Goldeneye, Ronin and Fellowship of the Ring.

He was very good in Goldeneye, excellent in LOTR, Red Riding and (what I've seen of) Game of Thrones

I thought he was good as the fantasist, wannabe hardman dismantled by Robert De Niro in Ronin.

Another vote for Sharp, it's one of the few roles he doesn't wind up dead in.....serously, every time i see a film and it has Sean Bean in it chances are he's going to die.

I've never rated him but found him surprisingly good when he played a tranny. I've forgot what it was called.

I tend to find he plays Sean Bean in everything
he is in.The Bond one (Goldeneye?) had him
attempting to 'talk posh' for a bit but then he
reverted to his own 'ooop north' accent.
Apparently a nice bloke but a crap actor!
