Famous family trees: Sean Bean

In this blog series, experienced family historian, Roy Stockdill, investigates the family histories of the famous, both living and dead. Does Sean Bean Really Die More Than Other Actors? One does not simply… assume.

Does Sean Bean Really Die More Than Other Actors?

Actor Sean Bean has been dying over and over again for 20 years. He’s been dropped from a satellite dish in Goldeneye, shot through the neck with a grappling hook in The Island, peppered with arrows in The Lord of the Rings, and decapitated in Game of Thrones. But with the number of Sean Bean fatalities caught on camera brought back into the spotlight with his new show Legends, maybe it’s time to put the many demises into perspective. Start looking at the numbers, and many leading actors have died at least a few times. A long enough career can rack up the kills.

I crafted the following chart to find out: Click to enlarge! It looks like the “walking spoiler” meme has a grain of truth to it. However, even though Bean has perfected his “I’m dying” face, he still hasn’t died the most on screen. But the top honor of most on-screen deaths goes to wonderful character actor John Hurt. Maybe it should be #DontKillJohnHurt. So is Sean Bean a walking spoiler alert?

Alex Turner: His 35 Greatest Lyrics So Far

Here's 35 examples of the Monkey mainman's best work. "Great escape lost track of time and space/ She's a silver lining climbing on my desire" "What came first the chicken or the dickhead? " "Does it help you stay up late / Does it help you concentrate / Does it tune you in / When you chew your chin" "Flicking through a little book of sex tips / Remember when the boys were all electric?

" "Didn't you see she were gorgeous, she was beyond belief / But this lad at the side drinking his Smirnoff ice / Came and paid for her Tropical Reef" "It sort of feels like I'm running out of time/ I haven't found all I was hoping to find / You said you got to be up in the morning, going to have an early night / And you're starting to bore me, baby, why'd you only call me when you're high? " "Now then Mardy Bum / I've seen your frown / And it's like looking down the barrel of a gun" Share This. Arctic Monkeys. Alex Turner.

Why It's The Perfect Time For Alex Turner And Miles Kane To Revive The Last Shadow Puppets. What a pair of teases.

Why It's The Perfect Time For Alex Turner And Miles Kane To Revive The Last Shadow Puppets

Since the release of The Last Shadow Puppets' debut album 'The Age Of The Understatement' back in 2008, Alex Turner and Miles Kane have spent the interim years dangling the carrot of a follow-up but never quite coming through with the goods. In 2009, Kane said the pair were looking to record music that year, while in 2010 he confirmed that they would start recording again after he'd wrapped up his solo record. The same assertion was made again in 2012. In 2013, meanwhile, with no material having emerged, Alex Turner said that a second record was "on the cards", that he didn't know when, but he "certainly [didn't] think it would be tomorrow".

With hope diminishing, it looked like we could anything from six months, six years to a lifetime away from LSP Mk II. As they strode back out onto the Finsbury Park stage, arms around each other's shoulders and soaking up the crowd's excitable roars, you could see that quality is still there.
