Bean Joins the SAS

Movie star Sean Bean is being taught SAS secrets by bestselling author Andy McNab as filming begins on the £4m TV version of Bravo Two Zero.

Bean, 39, plays unit commander McNab in the BBC1 prohect and is learning the skills of desert survival and silent killing from the soldier-turned writer.

McNab, 37, has already put the Sharpe star through basic fitness training and will tell Bean how he survived weeks of torture at the hands of Iraqi interrogators. McNab said: "I will give the actors who play the soldiers of the eight-man mission proper weapons and mind-set training."
