Sharpe: Solder of fortune
Lord of the singe ... Sean
By EMMA COX
HOLLYWOOD hunk Sean Bean did a runner from a film set - and was found WELDING.
The Lord of the Rings star apparently got fed up with fussing flunkies on new movie Outlaw.
So he went off without telling anyone - causing producers to panic.
A search party tracked down the 48-year-old Sharpe TV star - who trained as a welder - to a nearby metal workshop in Lydney, Gloucestershire.
Stunned welder Chris Holmes, 42, said: "He just walked in and said he fancied getting back into welding. He asked if he could have a go.
"He wasn't too bad. He burned a few holes in his white T-shirt."
Sean left a piece of metal with his name and three kisses welded on it.
Chris said: "He was quite nostalgic."
