Sean Bean, the actor who plays Ned Stark on Game of Thrones and played Boromir in Lord of the Rings was stabbed in a bar fight Sunday evening. But instead of going to the hospital, he walked back inside and ordered another drink. Badass!
Apparently Bean was smoking in front of his local pub in London with a "glamour model" (which is British for topless model) when someone walking by made a lewd comment about her. Bean chased him off, but when he went out for another cigarette the guy was waiting and stabbed him in the arm and punched him in the face. Bean chased him off again, but instead of going to the hospital, he patched himself up with a first aid kit and kept on drinking. Sean Bean is officially my new hero. I question if there is some parallel between what happened to him in real life and to his character on Sunday night's episode. The similarities are uncanny!
