Sean Bean - Sean Bean Went Out In Drag For New Role

British actor Sean Bean risked his tough guy reputation by stepping out in public in full drag to get into character for his new role as a transvestite.
Bean, best known for his hardman roles in Sharpe and The Lord of the Rings franchise, will show off his feminine side for new Bbc drama Accused, in which he plays a man going through a sex change who is caught up in a crime of passion.
To ensure he could get used to wearing high-heeled shoes, he practised walking in stilettos in his kitchen - before heading out in women's clothes with his daughter.
He tells Britain's Radio Times, "(I got into character) by walking round in high heels in the kitchen at home... and one night I went out ... arm-in-arm with my middle daughter.
"I wanted to find out what it felt like, whether I'd be able to pull it off and have the bottle (bravery) to function in that situation.
"I must have been pretty good, no pictures turned up in the press. Someone even complimented me on my shoes. I've still got four pairs of size-10 heels lying about my house. I forgot to give them back."
