Sean Bean: 5 Awesome Performances And 5 That Sucked

6 February 2015 1:11 AM, PST | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

Warner Bros.

The man who has died on screen more than twenty times (around an astonishing one third of all his film credits) has had a career spanning a diverse selection of roles in vastly different worlds.

His unfortunate label of ‘spoiler on legs’ has slightly overshadowed the acclaimed roles Sean Bean has undertaken and he will forever be associated with some of the best on screen deaths of all time. Not the worst legacy to leave behind but it perhaps doesn’t do justice to his acting ability.

Hailing from Sheffield in Yorkshire, the son of a welder and a passionate supporter of Sheffield United football club, he is a true man’s man. His roles could tell you that much; Richard Sharpe made him a British heartthrob, while his performances  as Odysseus and Zeus affirmed his ability to take on powerful, masculine roles.

However, his career certainly hasn’t been plain sailing. »
