English actor Sean Bean (born 1959) played Boromir in Peter Jackson's The Lord of the Rings film trilogy.

Bean had previously played Richard Sharpe in the well known British TV series Sharpe, based on Bernard Cornwell's novels about the Napoleonic Wars. Boromir's comment about the shards of Narsil in The Fellowship of the Ring ("Still sharp!") is a nod to that role.


"(on Boromir) "Being human, he's more susceptible to the power of the Ring and is constantly having to the fight against it. He knows that it's got a strong draw on him, and throughout the journey, that keys preying on his mind."
― Sean Bean, The Lord of the Rings Official Movie Guide
"Lord of the Rings was just so much enjoyment. It was over about the space of a year that I was filming. It's one of the most enjoyable things I've ever emotional."
― Sean Bean,
"I'm proud of Lord of the Rings, and I want to be there to tell people to go and see it, and get behind it. I think it's a once in a lifetime role, and a once in a lifetime film."
― Sean Bean,
