Sean Bean Insists He's Not In Game of Thrones Season 6. We know that Game of Thrones Season 6 will bring us flashbacks, most prominently a scene at the Tower of Joy that’s being filmed this week at the Castillo de Zafra in Spain. Since the scene at the Tower of Joy involves a young Ned Stark fighting alongside several of his companions against members of Aerys Targaryen’s kingsguard, some are hoping that Sean Bean will return to the show as Ned Stark, the role he played in Season 1 before he, y’know, got decapitated.

The Compleat Sean Bean. Is Sean Bean Returning As Ned Stark In Game Of Thrones Season 6? Sean Bean. Early life[edit] Bean was born in Handsworth, a suburb of Sheffield, which was then part of West Riding of Yorkshire (the County of South Yorkshire was created in 1974).

He is the son of Rita (née Tuckwood) and Brian Bean.[3] He has a younger sister named Lorraine. His father owned a fabrication shop which employed 50 people, including Bean's mother, who worked as a secretary. Despite becoming relatively wealthy (his father owned a Rolls-Royce Silver Shadow), the family never moved away from the council estate as they preferred to remain close to friends and family.[4] As a child, Bean smashed a glass door during an argument, which left a piece of glass embedded in his leg that briefly impeded his walking and left a large scar.[3] This prevented him from pursuing his dream of playing football professionally.
