Sean Bean, Boromir in Lord of the Rings and 006 in Goldeneye, will be reprising his role as Richard Sharpe in the upcoming BBC miniseries Sharpe's Challenge. My wife and I spent a good deal of this past summer captivated by Bean's portrayal of the adventures of Richard Sharpe during the Napoleonic era. Bean showed a wide range of acting ability and has become one of my favorite British imports to the United States. In fact, I have become sick of seeing him portrayed as a villain in American cinema and look forward to him donning the green garb of the Epic soldier once more.

The new Sharpe is being filmed for ITV and began filming on November 5th of this year.
