Sean Bean has played many a villain in his career, who one would expect to die before the movie is over. But even when he plays a hero, he often kicks the bucket before the final act. After more than two dozen deaths, it’s getting quite old, and Bean has announced he will no longer take the roles of the doomed. But it’s not because of his ego.
