Game of Thrones and Sean Bean, The Noble Man Who Always Die

Have you been watching TV recently? You must have seen the return on air of Game of Thrones, HBO's recent money-maker. Or if not, you must have seen the trailers or read news about it on the internet. Anyway, the first episode of the second season aired last April 1. 

And when the topic is about Game of Thrones, there's only one name that came into mind first - Sean Bean. Of course, you remember him as the man who plays Eddard Stark; the Lord of Winterfell and Warden of the North.

"Winter is coming." 

Don't you just love it when he's saying that? Just the right aura of mystery, nobility and coldness. It broke my heart when he was beheaded in 9th episode by that despicable (piece of shit) boy king, Joffrey. So, no more Sean Bean for the rest of Game of Thrones seasons. :(

Then, a thought hit me. He played Boromir in The Lord of the Rings: The Fellowship of the Ring. Didn't he also died during the first installment of that trilogy? He also played Robert Aske, a nobility in the time of King Henry III. It is a 2-episode TV series similar to The Tudors. In real life, Robert Aske was hanged; though he was wrongly portrayed in the series. Still, why does he always get a role where he is a noble man and then get executed or killed?

What did he do to these directors anyway? I guess we'll never know. Let's just hope he gets more acting roles where he actually finishes an entire franchise. Meantime, I'm ready to see more of that "Joffrey slaps" coming from Tyrion Lannister. It may sound sadistic but I think I'd be happy to see that boy being slapped at least for half of the second season. :D
