Sean Bean went on Reddit yesterday to promote his new TNT show, Legends, but he mostly talked about his role as Ned Stark on Game of Thrones, his role as Boromir in the Lord of the Rings trilogy, and getting mixed up with Rowan Atkinson. Here’s what we learned.
1. He broke Nicolas Cage’s prehistoric bear skull. “There was one where I went back to Nic Cage’s house, and we’d had a few drinks, we were playing pool and he accidentally knocked over his prehistoric cave bear skull and smashed it. And he was really upset about it, and the next day went and buried it in a field.”
2. He’s a foodie. Whenever someone asked a question about food, Bean often posted several answers in a row. His favorite comfort foods include chocolate, tomato soup, tinned custard with bananas, milk, milkshakes, mashed potatoes, an meat and potato pie with gravy with Henderson’s relish. When asked about his favorite flavor of ice cream, he first said strawberry, then changed his mind and said “raspberry ripple.”
3. While filming Lady Chatterley’s Lover, he accidentally walked onto the Enchanted Garden set and didn’t know the difference. After a lunch break, he tried to go back to the film set and accidentally ended up on the set of another period piece. “everybody was dressed in the same clothes, I sort of realized I was on the wrong set and wandered off. I was a little bit tired. I just saw all these actors that I didn’t know, and I was like ‘wait a minute’—because it all looked the same, except it wasn’t my film.” READ FULL STORY
