Hey, Iím watching the premiere of ABCís Missing. I didnít realize Sean Bean was in this shoĖ
And thatís about how much of Bean we saw in the pilot for ABCís new globe-hopping action drama, which stars Ashley Judd as an ex-CIA agent searching for her kidnapped son. Bean plays her government agent husband Paul, whoís murdered by a car bomb explosion during the pilotís prologue.
But unlike Beanís killed-off characters from other projects, heíll continue to appear in flashbacks throughout the first season (in fact, we have an exclusive clip of an upcoming scene with Bean below). Below, Bean talks to EW.com about the show:
GET MORE EW: Subscribe to the magazine for only 33Ę an issue!
ENTERTAINMENT WEEKLY: So that has to be world record for killing off one of your characters.
Bean: Yeah. I get exploded. Youíll see me in flashback and thatís the story that unfolds between Paul and Becca. It starts off back-to-front, in a way.
How much of you can we expect to see this season?
The flashbacks are quite substantial. You find out who she is and who Paul is, and and what their relationship is all about.
What can you tell us about their relationship?
Itís about these two people who work for the same agency who come together and fall in love. They get married. And since Iím still trying to maintain the day job, itís quite difficult. Thereís a tension between them. He goes over to Rome to study and she loses sight of him at that point. You donít really know what heís into and she doesnít know either.
Since the camera cut away from him when the vehicle blew up, can we assume heís really dead?
[Teasing] Uh, I cant remember.
Have the Game of Thrones producers asked you to shoot any flashbacks for that show?
No, Iíve not been asked. I understand thereís some flashbacks in the later books. So that would be fun to go in again for a short while.
What are you working on next?
I just finished a BBC drama by an excellent writer [Jimmy McGovern], a series called Accused. I get to play a transvestite.
Hereís an upcoming scene with Bean from Missing:
