Sean Bean lights up the screen with charisma whether he's a romantic lead or a villain. He starred as Lord Eddard 'Ned' Stark in the first season of HBO's Game of Thrones, and as the warrior Boromir in Lord of the Rings. His many other film credits include Patriot Games, Ronin, Golden Eye, Troy, The Hitcher and The Island. His acting career started at the prestigious Royal Shakespeare Company.
Next up for Bean is the role of an undercover agent plunged into a terrifying mystery over his own identity in TNT's intense new drama series Legends. The series comes from the producers of Homeland and is based on a novel by master spy writer Robert Littell.
Bean plays Martin Odum, an undercover agent working for the FBI's Deep Cover Operations (DCO) division. Martin has the uncanny ability to transform himself into a completely different person for each job. But he begins to question his own identity when a mysterious stranger suggests that Martin isn't the man he believes himself to be. As Martin tries to find answers to the questions about his identity, he must also continue his primary job as an undercover operative, taking on such roles as a Serbian extremist, a Scottish soccer club executive, a corrupt Chicago police officer, British special forces colonel and a legendary computer hacker. There are many times, however, when he must choose between the demands of his job and his desperate desire to solve the mystery of his own identity. And he doesn't always make the right choice.
