When Hollywood calls on him, they normally want Sean Bean to be a bad guy (or someone who gets killed relatively quickly), but he played a surprisingly large range of characters during his career. Now he’s going in a direction he hasn’t touched before, playing a transgender character looking for love in the second series of TV’s Accused.
Bean plays an English teacher called Simon and female alter ego Tracie, whose search for romance leads to a ‘terrible crime of passion’.
Bean commented, “I’ve wanted to work on a Jimmy McGovern drama for a while and I think this cracking script really delivers a powerful, emotional drama for the audience.”
If you want to watch out for it, it’ll be the third of four new episodes of Accused.
