Poor Sean Bean.
From Anna Karenina and Lady Chatterley’s Lover to Lord of the Rings and Game of Thrones, Sean is a period/costume drama afficionado. Plus, he is hot and can handle a sword like lord knows what. However, it has come to the attention of many that Sean is a character movie producers/writers/directors love to kill.
It’s fair to say Sean has died many many times more than he has lived on our screens.
He has been shot, stabbed, torn in half, drowned, thrown off a cliff, shot with arrows, dropped from an airplane, things fall on him, he gets shot again.
In tribute to Sean’s Hollywood death wish, a chap called Harry Hanrahan has put this little gem together:

He’s rather good at dying. But I rather like him alive.
