The Many Movie Deaths of Sean Bean

If Sean Bean is on your screen, either at home in front of the TV or out with your girlfriend watching a flick at your local cinema, rest assured that he’s probably not going to make it through the entire film. Well, usually portraying a major role, many times a villain, he’ll be there for most of the way, before getting killed off just before the credits start rolling.

This troubling trend began in 1986 with his role in the movie Caravaggio, and it seems film directors, script writers and film casters have fallen in love with the idea of killing his characters off.
