Why I have created this blog...
I have been a Sean Bean fan since the year 1993. Yes, I can pinpoint my discovery of him to that exact year. A woman I worked with in a retail establishment and I were talking about Masterpiece Theatre and she asked me if I had seen the series called Sharpe's. I said no, and she preceded to tell me about how gorgeous the star Sean Bean was. I had my doubts about how hot he would be because I have kind of a strange taste in men, but the minute I watched an episode of Sharpe's I became hooked and instantly lusted after him. There was just something about the way he looked that made me want to jump him and have his illegitimate offspring. Anyway! From that time I have watched just about everything he has appeared in and have watched him get more and more famous as the years have passed.
One thing that I have noticed over the years about his performances is that his characters almost always die. Not normal deaths but by things such as coffins falling on him and being impaled by the point of a giant satellite dish receiver. This has become a running joke in his fan base and I have felt for a while that somebody should start a blog to address this issue. Well, I guess I am the one to do it! Please be warned that by the very nature of this blog that there will be spoilers, however I will be doing much more than stating in one sentence if he dies in a given film and the manner of his death. Rather, I will go into depth about how I feel about the character and the film. Every once in a while I will also post news about him and other tidbits. I hope others find this blog entertaining and enjoy his films as much as I do.
