Personal Quote:

With actors there used to be a kind of taboo about 'Are you a TV actor or a film actor?' Those lines don't exist anymore. Now you're getting people like Matthew McConaughey and many others doing quality television. And I think audiences appreciate it. They're saying, 'We're not just watching the same old stuff now.' There are unpredictable endings. See more »

Trivia:

Sean Bean has become a source of popular Facebook/Internet memes of his character Boromir in the "Lord Of The Rings" films. The memes always begin with the line "One simply does not..." followed by a humorous quote or reference to something in the news or pop culture. This is based on his line "One does not simply walk into Mordor.". See more »

Trademark:

He often plays characters who die in a violent manner. This has occurred more than 20 times See more »

Star Sign:

Aries
