Sean Bean may now be a Hollywood heartthrob, but that has not stopped him returning to his Yorkshire roots to support his city’s university. The actor, who has worked alongside stars such as Pierce Brosnan, Orlando Bloom and Joely Richardson and is more usually found in the Hollywood Hills than Hillsborough, has returned to his home city to star in an advert promoting Sheffield Hallam University as the place to study. Bean, whose film credits include Lord of the Rings, and Patriot Games, and who was famously the swashbuckling hero of the TV series Sharpe, has recorded four adverts about studying at Sheffield Hallam and life in the city, to be broadcast on local radio stations.
