Sean Bean Midsummer Update


It's been a quiet few months since the flurry of spring news, so I thought I'd write a bit of an update for ongoing & upcoming things.


The most immediate is the imminent premiere of Percy Jackson: Sea of Monsters, the sequel to The Lightning Thief. In it, Sean reprises his role as Zeus. He still has billing credit so hopefully he didn't end up on the cutting room floor! I have not seen him in the featurette. I've scoured every trailer & advert released looking for a glimpse of him, so far, nothing yet. If invited I expect Sean will go to at least 1 of the world premieres.


Over the past 2 months Sean has been busy working on Jupiter Ascending, the major science fiction film by the Wachowskis that is slated for release in July 2014. He is still listed as playing Stinger, a "Han Solo" type of character. Again, I've kept a sharp eye on many sources present at the filming locations, but have not seen any snaps or official shots of him as yet. They are filming at present in Chicago. I was joking with some other fans recently, after seeing a few of Channing Tatum's shots, that Sean's costume & makeup also must be a really great disguise!

At San Diego Comic Con last weekend, HBO TV show Game of Thrones showed an "In Memoriam" reel before their panel, which was a tribute to all the characters that have been killed off the show so far. Got a bit choked up when they reached Eddard "Ned" Stark, who Sean played so brilliantly in series 1. The North Remembers! View it here:

Lastly, for now, cancer is a horrible disease that I hate. It's taken far too many people that we love, including those in our own families. Please support however you are able your local cancer charity & research hospitals so that it may be eradicated.
