Sean Bean steps out in drag
Tuesday 07 August 2012
TV star Sean Bean has told how he ventured out in drag to prepare for his new role as a transvestite.
The actor, 53, appears on-screen wearing a blonde wig and make-up later this month in award-winning BBC1 legal drama Accused, penned by Jimmy McGovern.
Asked how he prepared for the role, Bean told the Radio Times magazine: "By walking round in high heels in the kitchen at home ... and one night I went out ... arm-in-arm with my middle daughter. I wanted to find out what it felt like, whether I'd be able to pull it off and have the bottle to function in that situation."
