Sean Bean flies high

From the fallen Boromir in "The Lord of the Rings," the actor rises to roles as captain in "Flightplan" and husband in "North Country"

Popularly known as “The Lord of the Rings” fallen hero Boromir, Sean Bean
will be seen next on the big screen opposite two Oscar Best Actress winners–with Jodie Foster in Touchstone Pictures’ suspense-thriller “Flightplan”
and with Charlize Theron in Warner Bros.’ inspiring drama “North Country.”

Bean was taken in by “Flightplan’s” mysteries. “By the time the pilot gets
involved, no one is sure if Kyle got on the plane with a child in the first
place or whether she might be having delusions or what is going on,” he
explains. “My character, being a father himself, tries to empathize with
her. He’s not quite sure if he’s a believer or not. He wants to believe
her, but he’s also suspicious that she might be some kind of danger to his
flight, and safety is his first priority.”

Bean especially took pleasure in the intriguing interplay between his
character and Jodie Foster as they try to size one another up and figure out
one another’s agendas. He recalls, “It was such a thrill to watch Jodie
Foster work because she is so incredibly focused.”
