Sean Bean is a human spoiler. If he shows up in a movie, there is a very good chance his character will die. He's said to have the highest death-per-film ratio of any actor. It has become his Thing. So it's interesting to hear him pick a personal favorite death scene. And he chose wisely.
Entertainment Weekly asked him about his role as the flawed, conflicted, desperate Boromir in "The Lord of the Rings: The Fellowship of the Ring." Boromir dies toward the end of the film, taking arrows in pretty much every part of his body as a way of protecting his hobbit buddies, Merry and Pippin.
"It's my favorite death scene, and I've done a few," Bean told EW with a laugh. "You couldn't ask for a more heroic death."
Bean told EW that he, Viggo Mortensen (Aragorn), director Peter Jackson, and co-writer Fran Walsh came up with Boromir's parting line to Aragorn -- "My brother, my captain, my king" -- the night before shooting, over beers and a bottle of wine.
In 2014, WatchMojo made a video of the Top 10 Sean Bean Deaths, and guess where they put Boromir? Yep. Same spot the star put it. His "Game of Thrones" death as Ned Stark was No. 2. Some fans may put Ned at No. 1 themselves, but at least Boromir had a more noble end.Sean Bean's new movie "Drone" comes out May 26th. Pray for him.
