Actor Sean Bean’s full name is Shaun Mark Bean. He was born in Handsworth, West Riding of Yorkshire in England. This talented actor first got a taste of stardom when he acted in the television series Sharpe. He portrayed the character of Richard Sharpe, which earned him a lot of recognition and adulation. He played several another role such as the one in the BBC documentary series Accused and the ITV drama series called Henry VIII. Sean also played Boromir, one of the key roles in The Lord of the Rings trilogy. Personally speaking his portrayal of Ned Stark in the hit HBO television series The Game of Thrones was by far his best television performance till date. It is ironical of how he plays the most loyal minister to his king, but he never receives loyalty from any of his subjects. It's heartbreaking to see how he dies, actually it’s more disturbing since the Game of Thrones is known to be a blood fest.
