Sean Bean Net Worth, Biography, Wiki 2017-2016

Shaun ‘Sean’ Mark Bean was born on 17 April 1959, in Handsworth, Yorkshire England. He is a very successful actor, who is known as Sean Bean in both television and movie industries. Sean is famous for his appearances in such movies and television shows as “Game of Thrones”, “Sharpe”, “The Lord of the Rings”, “Silent Hill” and many others. Recently he has gained even more fans for his remarkable role in the worldwide famous show “Game of Thrones”. During his career Sean has been nominated for and has won many awards; some of them include, Empire Award, Broadcast Film critics Association Award, BAFTA Award, Screen Actors Guild Award and many others. Sean is now famous more than ever and he will probably achieve even more honorable rewards. Let’s hope that his acting career will last for a long time.

Sean Bean Net Worth $20 Million

If you consider how rich Sean Bean is, sources estimate that Sean’s net worth is $20 million, the main source of his wealth being his successful career as an actor. In addition to this, Sean has also worked on several video games and appeared in the music video of Moby for the song called “We Are Al Made of Stars”. These activities have also added to his net worth. As there is no doubt that he will continue working as an actor, there is a high chance that Sean’s net worth will become higher.

Sean grew up in a quite rich family as his parents had their own business. When he was a small boy he dreamt of becoming a professional football player, but an accident with a glass door shattered this dream as a piece of glass injured his leg. Bean studied at Rotherham College of Arts and Technology and during this period he became interested in acting. He began appearing in different college events and this only encouraged him to continue his studies at the Royal Academy of Dramatic Art – RADA. In 1983 he appeared in “Romeo and Juliet”, then his first movie role was in the movie entitled “Caravaggio”. This was the time when Sean Bean’s net worth began growing. In 1993 Sean appeared in the critically acclaimed movie called “Lady Chatterley”, in which he had an opportunity to work with Joely Richardson, Hetty Baynes, James Wilby and others. After this film, Sean received a lot of attention and invitations to act in various projects. He was soon cast in a main role in the television show called “Sharpie”, which had a huge impact on the growth of Bean’s net worth. In 2001 Sean acted in one of his most famous roles in the popular trilogy, “The Lord of the Rings”. There he worked with such famous actors as Ian McKellen, Liv Tyler, Elijah Wood, Orlando Bloom and many others. These movies made Sean popular all over the world and not only his net worth grew but his fan base also became greater.

As mentioned, Sean became even more successful after his appearance in the “Game of Thrones”. Although he only appeared in the first season of this show it still added a lot to his net worth. Other movies and television shows that Sean appeared in include, “The Lost Future”, “Cleanskin”, “Mirror Mirror”, “Crusoe”, “Missing” and others. Recently he has been working on other movies and shows so we will undoubtedly see him again soon.

To talk more about Sean’s personal life, it can be said that he has married four times, all ending in divorce. Bean has three children, two from his first marriage to, Debra James(1981-88) and one from the second marriage, to Melanie Hill (1991-97). He was also married to Abigail Cuthbertson (1997-2000) and Georgina Sutcliffe (2008-10). Sean is now in a relationship with Ashley Moore. All-in-all, Sean Bean is one of the most successful actors in the industry. He has appeared in many popular movies and television shows and there is no doubt that he will continue having successful appearances in other projects.

Looks like we don't have Sean Bean salary information. Sorry!


#Fact
1 As of 2016, has appeared in three films that were nominated for the Best Picture Oscar: The Lord of the Rings: The Fellowship of the Ring (2001)_, The Lord of the Rings: The Return of the King (2003) and The Martian (2015). Of those, The Lord of the Rings: The Return of the King (2003) is a winner in the category.
2 Sean Bean has become a source of popular Facebook/Internet memes of his character Boromir in the "Lord Of The Rings" films. The memes always begin with the line "One simply does not..." followed by a humorous quote or reference to something in the news or pop culture. This is based on his line "One does not simply walk into Mordor.".
3 Major supporter of the Labour Party.
4 Has played both Mythological Greek hero Odysseus in Troy (2004) and Greek God Zeus in Percy Jackson & the Olympians: The Lightning Thief (2010).
5 He was considered for the role of Hank Pym in Ant-Man (2015) that went to Michael Douglas.
6 He follows Yorkshire County Cricket Club.
7 Bean has been a fan of Sheffield United since he was eight years old, and has a tattoo on his left shoulder that reads "100% Blade". He opened their hall of fame in 2001 and, after making a six-figure contribution to the club's finances, was on their board of directors between 2002 and 2007 to help raise the profile of the club. He stepped down in 2007 to "go back to being an ordinary supporter" where he feels at home. During his time there, he had some issues with Neil Warnock, former manager of Sheffield United, after Warnock claimed that Bean stormed into his office and shouted at him in front of his wife and daughter when the club had just been relegated from the Premier League. Bean denies it, calling Warnock "bitter" and "hypocritical". He wrote the foreword and helped to promote a book of anecdotes called Sheffield United: The Biography.
8 He has received multiple articles of fan mail intended for Rowan Atkinson, who played Mr. Bean.
9 Appeared in Game of Thrones (2011), with Peter Vaughan. Vaughan had previously played Denethor in the BBC Radio production of "The Lord of the Rings", while Bean played Boromir - Denethor's son - in Peter Jackson's films.
10 His fear of flying was cured during the filming of The Lord of the Rings.
11 His father, Brian, owned a fabrication (metal) shop and his mother, Rita, worked as a secretary.
12 He has two scars. He got one when he was a child and the other from Harrison Ford during the filming of Patriot Games.
13 Has a younger sister called Lorraine Bean.
14 Was considered for the part of Kainan in Outlander (2008).
15 Presented the award for Duo of the Year to John Tams and Barry Coope at the BBC Radio 2 Folk Awards. (4th February 2008).
16 Applied successfully for a grant to study at RADA where he won a Silver Medal and two fencing medals.
17 Appeared in UK adult comic Viz (issue 76, Feb/Mar 1996) in a spoof photo-love story called "I've Bean to Paradise".
18 Like fellow countryman Gary Oldman, he started out his career playing villainous characters, only to later distance himself from that on screen image by taking more likable roles like the ones he played in Troy (2004) and North Country (2005).
19 Has worked opposite two Aragorns. Prior to working with Viggo Mortensen in The Lord of the Rings, he appeared in The Field (1990) with John Hurt, who had voiced Aragorn in Ralph Bakshi's animated film. Also, in Sharpe's Challenge (2006), he works with Toby Stephens, whose father, Robert Stephens, played Aragorn in the BBC Radio Adaptation.
20 His dislike for flying is so intense that during the filming of the "Mount Caradhras" scene in The Lord of the Rings: The Fellowship of the Ring (2001), he hiked in costume to the shooting site while his fellow cast members were ferried in by helicopter.
21 Auditioned for the role of James Bond in The Living Daylights (1987). He later played Bond's nemesis Alec Trevelyan in GoldenEye (1995).
22 Has three children as of July 2005: Lorna Bean (b. October 1987; mother is Melanie Hill), Molly Bean (b. September 1991; mother is Melanie Hill) and Evie Natasha Bean (b. November 1998; mother is Abigail Cruttenden).
23 Once played Romeo at the Royal Shakespeare Theatre in streetwise-wearing biker's leather.
24 Is a member of the Royal Shakespeare Company (RSC) in Stratford Upon Avon, England, where his credits include "A Midsummer Nights Dream" and "King Richard II".
25 Graduated from the Royal Academy of Dramatic Art (RADA) in London, England.
26 Is one of four "Lord of the Rings" stars to star, pre-"Rings", with Harrison Ford. He starred with Ford in Patriot Games (1992), and Ford starred with Viggo Mortensen in Witness (1985), and with John Rhys-Davies (Gimli) in Raiders of the Lost Ark (1981) and Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade (1989) and with Miranda Otto (Éowyn) in What Lies Beneath (2000).
27 The only film awards he's ever won are from the Screen Actors Guild, the National Board of Review and the Broadcast Film Critics Association; these awards were all for Best Cast Ensemble for The Lord of the Rings: The Return of the King (2003), in which he only appeared for three seconds in archive footage.
28 He has retained his Sheffield accent.
29 Since February 2004, has been living in a London hotel after a burst water pipe flooded his house.
30 Says that he took the roles of Boromir and Odysseus because he was "tired of being known as a villainous actor" to American audiences (he says he was tired of playing just bad guys and wanted a change of pace and to play a sympathetic character or two).
31 He and his ex-wife, Melanie Hill, have two daughters: Lorna Bean and Molly Bean.
32 Has a scar over his eye given to him by Harrison Ford while shooting his death scene in Patriot Games (1992). Ford accidentally hit him with a boat hook. In the Sharpe series, this was emphasised with makeup to add credibility to his character.
33 He has a "100% BLADE" tattoo on his left shoulder, in honour of his favourite football team, Sheffield United whose nickname is "The Blades". The tattoo is frequently converted (with makeup) into a scar - or a different tattoo - when he is filming.
34 Was awarded an Honorary Doctorate degree from the University of Sheffield in England in 1997.
35 Appeared in Moby's video for "We Are All Made of Stars". [2002]
36 Made his professional stage debut in "Romeo and Juliet" (as Tybalt) at the Watermill Theatre in Newbury, England in 1983.
37 Was not the first choice for the role of Richard Sharpe in the Sharpe series; he stepped in when an accident prevented actor Paul McGann from taking the part.
38 In a scene midway through Sharpe's Honour (1994), Sharpe and Marquesa Dorada are galloping down a hill on horseback when they suddenly tumble off the horse and land in the middle of a shallow stream. The scene is real; the horse stumbled as it was crossing the stream, sending Bean and co-star Alice Krige down into the water. Director 'Tom Clegg' liked the scene and kept it for the final cut.
39 He was a presenter at the 1995 BAFTA Awards.
40 He is a devoted follower of the Sheffield United Football Club.
41 Daughter, Evie Natasha born, with Abigail Cruttenden. [November 1998]

#Quote
1 (On Peter O'Toole) "The first time I met him on the set, he was in a robe with a cigarette holder and he said: 'Sean, how are you, dear boy?' He was just how I imagined him to be."
2 With actors there used to be a kind of taboo about 'Are you a TV actor or a film actor?' Those lines don't exist anymore. Now you're getting people like Matthew McConaughey and many others doing quality television. And I think audiences appreciate it. They're saying, 'We're not just watching the same old stuff now.' There are unpredictable endings.
3 [on Madness] All the videos were so good, they always seem fresh and new, though the lyrics are quite melancholy.
4 [on David Bowie] To be able to create music like that, to be a poet, to constantly change his look and challenge everything, was quite incredible. It was very attractive, if I'm honest. He was luxurious and decadent and it was infectious, you wanted to be in the world that his character inhabited.
5 I was a big Bowie (David Bowie) fan when I was younger and I still am. I even dyed my hair red and had the same hairstyle. He was very big in Sheffield, people don't realize how important he was - so were Marc Bolan, Lou Reed, Roxy Music... it was a very luxurious time.
6 When I'm working I tend to listen to classical music in my trailer. Bach (Johann Sebastian Bach), Vivaldi (Antonio Vivaldi) and Mozart (Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart) put me in a good frame of mind, make me focused and clear. Bach is like the Shakespeare (William Shakespeare) of music.
7 I sort of leave the characters at the end of the day. I don't carry anything around with me. No excess baggage or unnecessary thoughts. I think it's too exhausting to do that. To put things into perspective - your work is your work and your leisure time is something else.
8 A common misperception of me is...that I am a tough, rough northerner, which I suppose I am really. But I'm pretty mild-mannered most of the time. It's the parts that you play I guess. I don't mind it. I'm not a tough guy. I'd like to act as a fair, easygoing, kind man at some point.
9 [on Casino Royale (2006)] I think there was a time I was linked to it but I suppose I blew it playing 006. They made a good choice in Daniel Craig. He's a very good actor. He was in one of the first Sharpes we ever did and I gave him a bit of a battering. So we can always say Sharpe battered Bond.
10 en in answer to question at Cannes Film Festival Troy (2004) Interview] There's a wealth of literature out there which, hopefully, will be, you know, exploded in the future, and I personally find it very rewarding to be involved with classic storytelling, and sort of legendary characters.
11 [talking about his character Boromir] He's a fallen hero, a very gentle man under that exterior. He's lived in an environment always ravaged by war and had to be realistic. He wants to use the ring against the enemy instead of destroying it. He doesn't understand the complexities this piece of metal can have on human beings.
