    It's amazing how Sean Bean portrayed a character so honorable like Ned Stark when he was famous before for his portrayal of many villians or anti-heroes like Boromir in LOTR or Janus in Golden Eye.

    I guess he was so good in the role as Ned Stark because he has this wise dad vibes ... and, of course, because he is a great actor.

    He is my favorite actor. I was a kid when LOTR came out, but Boromir really stuck out to me. After The Fellowship of the Ring I started watching more of his stuff. Even tho he dies in most stuff, he is still my favorite actor. Wether he is playing a bad guy, good guy, corrupted good guy, or the rare love interest, he's a very good actor. I love the show dearly, but if it wasn't for Sean Bean, I would have never watched Game of Thrones. Almost stopped watching after he died.

    This is interesting to me because it seems like that they didn't tell Sean Bean that Ned wasn't Jon's father. I wonder how much differently Sean would've played Ned around Jon with that knowledge.
