Sean Bean, 28, has both the jagged good looks and staccato name to make it as a modern romantic lead. That he also has the talent he has already proved in stage and screen roles from Romeo with the Royal Shakespere Company to Renuncio in the film 'Caravaggio'. In 'Stormy Monday', a modern-day gangster movie set in the mean streets of Newcastle, he plays Brendan, a Northern lad who works for the nightclub owner Sting and falls in love with Melanie Griffiths.
