Sean Bean Talks LOTR
Filming the entire Lord of the Rings trilogy at once has to be hard. And that's exactly what he's saying. Read on in this report from Popcorn about LOTR and the demanding schedule. Here's a clip:
'Lord Of The Rings' star Sean Bean has been one of the first cast members to describe life on the set of Peter Jackson's epic JRR Tolkien trilogy. Talking to the Sunday Times, the English actor calls the process of working on three films at once "totally unbelievable. I am dipping from one script to another, all printed in different colours. It is a bigger investment than 'Titanic' and a lot of careers are sitting on this right to the end."
The 41-year-old Sheffield-born actor plays Boromir in the trilogy, but admits that he hadn't previously read any of the books. Now, having worked on it, he describes it as "a grown-up fairy tale that is dark and sinister. But it is an incredible fantasy that is quite wonderful and leaves you full of hope."
