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. Career[edit] Bean starred in the first season of Game of Thrones, HBO's adaptation of the A Song of Ice and Fire novels by George R.R. Image[edit] Acting style[edit] Personal life[edit]
