20 Behind-the-Scenes Secrets of Lord of the Rings
Sean Bean Kept Some of His Lines in His Lap
Sean Bean is most well known for dying in everyone’s favorite movies and TV shows. Bean is a great actor, but nobody’s perfect, and it can be difficult to keep all your lines straight in complex scenes. In one such scene in Rivendell where arguments are breaking out over what to do with the ring, Sean kept his pages in his lap.
Thanks to the close up that framed Sean’s face, his lap was safely out of view. That meant that he could keep his pages them, and reference them when he needed to. You would think this might have hurt his performance, but Sean more than holds his own in these scenes.
