Sean Bean no longer Wants to Die on Screen

In an interview with The Sun, the 60-year-old popular actor claimed he had refused roles in which his character is supposed to die. He also said that he needed to put an end to death on screen and start surviving; otherwise, his roles became too predictable for the audience.

He recalls that during one acting job, he was told by the director that he was going to die on screen and he was like ‘Oh, no’ so they asked him if they could injure him very badly to which he agreed, as long as he stayed alive this time.

The Hollywood actor stated that he had played a long list of villains which were awesome; however, they weren’t fulfilling for him and plus, he always end up dying.

His last death on screen was with the role of Ned Stark in 2011 when he was beheaded. So, the actor didn’t have any deaths on screen for 8 years now. Will he continue in this manner remains to be seen!
