Mr Bean

I am not a founder member of the Jimmy McGovern fan club, but I was drawn into watching the first of the new Accused series on BBC last night, by the casting of Sean Bean as a transvestite. Yes, Boromir in Lord of the Rings and Ned Stark in Game of Thrones, actually did play a cross-dressing good-time gay, called Simon by day, and Tracey by night. Did it work? Let’s put it this way, if anyone ever does a remake of Priscilla, Queen of the Desert, no prizes for guessing who’ll play the lead. Sean, I never knew you had it in you. (Please don’t take that the wrong way.)

    Alas, one of my favorite sex symbols! Glad I won’t have to watch the episode on BBCA (I hope)

      No, Patricia, don’t miss it; he isn’t in drag all the time.

    I was, as they say, utterly gobsmacked. The man is so – manly – and yet there it was – it worked. Never knew he had such a sensitive side. What would Aragorn say?

      I’ve never been quite sure about Aragorn. Remember that bit, right at the end of LOTR3, when he’s been crowned, and out of the blue he starts singing in this weird, effeminate voice?

    Good point. In that case, maybe Aragorn would approve. He was doing really well until he started warbling for, frankly, no good reason (Aragorn, not Sean).
