About Sean Bean (1959 – )
Sean Bean was born on April 17, 1959 in Sheffield, South Yorkshire, England.

Initially working for his father's business as a welder, the acting bug didn't hit Bean as early as some. Instead, Bean focused on holding a job and maintaining a stable personal life that includes, so far, three marriages; the first of which was to Debra James in 1981. In 1990 Bean remarried to Melanie Hill. They were together seven years and had two children. Between his second and third marriage, Bean was awarded an Honorary Doctorate degree from Sheffield-Hallam University in England in 1997. His final marriage was to Abigail Cruttenden with whom he had one daughter and later divorced in 2000.

After working for his father's firm for several years, Sean Bean tried his hand at theater. Subsequent to his graduation from the Royal Academy of Dramatic Art in London, Bean would appear in a number of West End stage productions including the Royal Shakespeare Company's Fair Maid of the West (1986), after his professional debut on the stage of the Watermill Theatre in Newbury, England in Romeo and Juliet (1983). Bean would later perform his debut play for the Royal Shakespeare Company in 1987. Currently Bean is still affiliated with the Royal Shakespeare Company in Stratford upon Avon.

Although English-native Sean Bean has acted in almost every medium for approximately 20 years (theater, radio, television, and movies), perhaps he is best known to America for his performances in several major blockbusters, the first of which he starred opposite Harrison Ford in 1992's Patriot Games. Bean has also appeared in the Lord of the Rings trilogy, Fellowship of the Ring (2001), The Two Towers (2002), and The Return of the King (2003), as the fallen hero Boromir. Recently he played Odysseus in the major motion picture Troy (2004) starring opposite Brad Pitt. The same year Bean also appeared as the villainous treasure hunter in 2004's National Treasure.

Despite his ability to play the bad guy to a "T", Bean has admitted that he is, at times, uncomfortable with the stereotype and tries to stay selective in his roles:

"I took the roles of Boromir and Odysseus because I was tired of being known as a villainous actor to American audiences." But Bean is remarkable either as the villain, the warrior, or the passionate lover, and his versatility only continues to aid his film credits.

Though Bean has yet to snag an Oscar he has been recognized by The Screen Actors Guild, Broadcast Film Critics, and the National Board of Review for Best Cast Ensemble for The Return of the King, despite his mere three seconds of archive footage.

Recently, Sean Bean was voted the second sexiest man in the UK, stating "I don't have any problems with women seeing me as their ideal bit of 'rough'. Why would I?" Despite the sex-symbol status, Bean remains a level-headed patron to his country and hometown of Sheffield (he maintains the original accent). Bean currently lives in London where he is free to support his favorite football team, The Sheffield Blades (he sports a 100% BLADE tattoo on his shoulder), and spend time raising his three daughters; Lorna, Molly, and Evie.
