Sean Bean in My Kingdom for a Horse, before he hit the big screen. Fred's claim to fame - he taught him pike drill.

Must be around 2004. Got a load of film-star signatures on a Manx police helmet + raised a few grand at auction. Sean Bean, Malcovich, Madonna and many more.

Sean Bean and Melanie Griffith - Newcastle-upon-Tyne, 1987. I travelled up from London on the train with Jim Fallon from Fairchild (it felt a bit Get Carter!) for a shoot and interview with the stars of a new British/American gangster film, ‘Stormy Monday’ (which also starred Sting and Tommy Lee Jones) being filmed up there.
You never know with actors especially if they’re going to be temperamental and say ‘You’ve got 5 minutes’ or be totally accommodating, and this wasn’t the easiest of shoots. They were filming in a café on the high street - Melanie was playing a waitress - and I dragged them down to the riverside so I could get those super bridges in the background. On their lunch break. I really wanted the background with the bridges and sky to go dark and moody, like a Bill Brandt photo, but it was a fairly bright day with open sky by the river. An ordinary small flash wasn’t powerful enough to allow me to stop down enough for the bridges to be underexposed, but overall I was happy with the results.

After completing the BBC Directors’ course came the long wait, trudging between producers with your showreel, hoping for a TV job. However there was still theatre work for me: in 1990, I directed ‘Killing the Cat’ by David Spencer (writer of Releevo) at the Royal Court Studio. I sent the play to Sean Bean's agent but could get little information or help from him. Sean had played Angelo for me in Measure for Measure at RADA, so we already knew and respected each other. One evening the phone rang and it was Sean - as ever, he went straight to the point: "It’s a good play, in't it?” - or words to that effect - and in a matter of minutes he'd committed himself to being in the production, never to waver.

From that starting point, I built my cast: Val Lilley, Henry Stamper, Sally Rogers, Kate McLoughlin and, as the young Danny, Dominic Kinnaird. Shimon, the designer, transformed the studio space of the Theatre Upstairs into a site-specific exploration of Danny's state of mind and memory. We had a tough and tempestuous rehearsal period, but we created something that packed an emotional punch. As a result, the reviews divided between love and hate.

Here's a lovely review from Georgina Brown: “David Spencer's ‘Killing the Cat’ explores the repercussions for a working-class family when the son writes a novel exposing his father's sexual abuse of his daughter. It is Spencer's second winner of the Verity Bargate Award…an exceptional piece - dense, demanding and boldly conceived, and here given a searing production by Sue Dunderdale and a superb cast."

Sean Bean holds the centre well as Angry Young Danny, veering convincingly
from volcanic rage and biting cynicism, to weepy sensitivity and all-out
kindness.
