Bean Turns His Back On Hollywood
NORTH COUNTRY star SEAN BEAN is relieved to be returning to British TV, because has grown sick of the "bulls**t" he encounters in Hollywood on a daily basis. The 46-year-old has returned to his breakthrough role as Napoleonic soldier RICHARD SHARPE in new ITV1 drama SHARPE'S CHALLENGE, and he insists the swashbuckling part is still his finest hour. He says, "When I first went, people would promise things and a lot of it was bulls**t. "I'm happy to be back as Sharpe. It's the role I'm most proud of."
