Sean Bean is an English actor most famous for his role as “Boromir” in Lord of the Rings. He is also known for his role as “Eddard Stark” in Game of Thrones.

Bean was born in 1959 in England to a wealthy family, as Shaun Mark Bean. When he was young, his dream was to play Association Football (also known as soccer) professionally. However, after an accident with a glass door that injured his leg, he instead pursued art, eventually graduating in Drama. He has since played a variety of roles, many of which were villainous, playing off of his rugged features. Though he had acted in films before, it wasn’t until 1992 that Bean entered into film consistently, having mostly played roles on stage and television before then.
