He's one of the nation's favourite baddies but Sean Bean jumped at playing a part in a movie about demented Welsh sheep!
Although the scary script kept him up all night, Goldeneye star Sean said it was a relief not to play a psychotic in Welsh-based film The Dark.
Although the film is a horror flick, Sean's character James is a normal down-to-earth guy and the actor couldn't be more relieved.
'It really is nice to play just an ordinary guy. I do like playing villains but it's nice to have a break from that. James is a very free-spirited sort of guy. He's a sculptor and interested in very artistic things. He loves to be on his own in the wilderness.'
Filmed in the Isle of Man but based on a Welsh novel, called Sheep, by writer Simon Maginn, the movie stars Sean as a recently separated man who moves to Wales to find solace.
