Bean: I'd love to play zombie Ned

Sean Bean would like to return to Game Of Thrones, even though his character was killed off in the first series

Sean Bean has said he would love the chance to return to Game Of Thrones one day.

As Lord Eddard "Ned" Stark, he was touted as the lead character in season one of the fantasy series but was quickly killed off after just 10 episodes.

Asked if he would come back as a ghost or in a flashback about Ned, Sean said: "I hope so, maybe as a zombie or something.

"It would be nice to come back, if it's relevant to the book, and do a few days. It would be nice to get to see everybody."

On the subject of whether he missed the running around with swords that his Game Of Thrones role involved, Sean admitted he did.

He said: "I do sometimes, but I've got a few at home, so I'm alright."

Sean has plenty more fantasy projects in the pipeline, with four new films out this year.

He stars in family adventure Percy Jackson: Sea Of Monsters and Scorched Earth, about a bounty hunter in post-apocalyptic Earth.

Sean can also be seen in World War II horror film The 4th Reich and thriller Wicked Blood.

Next year he is heading back into fantasy territory again with Jupiter Ascending, about a woman targeted for assassination by the Queen of the Universe.

Your Horoscopes by Russell Grant

Virgo:

It's difficult to deal with a highly competitive colleague. Every time you submit work, they try to find ways to outperform you. Although you have no interest in pitting your talent against theirs, this other person thinks very differently. Ignoring them won't be possible. A good way to disarm this pest is to invite them out for coffee. Describe what you've observed and ask for a truce. Irrational people are often thrown off balance when their behaviour is addressed in a direct manner.More
