This Writer has always enjoyed the actor’s work; now we all have reason to praise him for his political views, too.
British screen legend Sean Bean has lauded Jeremy Corbyn for “sticking up for the working-class man”.
The ‘Sharpe’ and ‘Game of Thrones’ Star told reporters that the Labour leader’s voice was one that needed to be heard in Britain right now.
He also equated the current political system to the UK’s entertainment exports saying foreign audiences were seeing a “rosy (and) upper-class” picture rather than “real stories about working people”.
Bean was speaking at a press conference about his new series, ‘The Frankenstein Chronicles’ in which he plays Inspector John Marlott in 19th century London.
He drew similarities between the show and modern Britain: “There’s a lot about this story that resonates today. From the social issues to the cover-ups. It all sounds familiar and nothing’s changed.”
Bean described himself as an old Labour supporter and Corbyn as “sticking up for the working-class man and it’s time we heard that voice again”.
