NME– Lord of the Rings and Game of Thrones star Sean Bean was involved in an alleged attack in a North London pub at the weekend. The incident is said to have occured while the actor was enjoying a drink and a cigarette in the Sunday sun with friend April Summers. Standing outside the Hill Bar and Brassiere in Camden a passer-by made lewd comments about his companion leading the former Sharpe actor to confront the man.
As reported in The Daily Mail, the unnamed man is believed to have returned to the bar later and attacked the Lord of the Rings star, punched him in the face and ‘stabbed him with broken glass’. Declining a trip to hospital Sean Bean went back into the pub and ordered another drink.
A fellow drinker told The Mail, “Sean is a regular here and we’ve never had any problems before. He was with a very attractive woman and an incident occurred outside the bar.” “He came in with a cut on his arm and a bruise on his eyebrow. We saw to his injuries with the first aid kit. He seemed ok and wanted to have another drink.” Neither Bean nor Summers has commented on the incident. Sean Bean is currently appearing in the HBO drama Game of Thrones on Sky Atlantic.
Sean Bean is a freaking boss. I’ve never even heard of the Game of Thrones. I think most people think of Lord of the Rings when they see him, but not me… the only movie I think when I see this guy is Patriot Games. Loved Patriot Games. Loved watching Sean Miller chase Jack Ryan to avenge the death of his baby brother and fellow IRA member. Then I loved watching Jack Ryan kick his ass. Anyway, let me try to get this straight….here he is at a bar in London, having a pint and a smoke with his lady friend when somebody makes a smartass remark to her. What’s he do? Confronts the dude, defending her honor, scaring the dude off…only to have the guy return and attack, stabbing Sean Bean with some broken glass in the process? Damn, this musta been some chick the 52 year old Bean was protecting…some smoking hot cougar I bet. Google here I come: April Summers.
Welp, that’s about the only picture I could find of her with her clothes on. Not even a good photo, really awkward looking, but believe me… there are many good ones. I repeat, Sean Bean is a boss. Turns out this chick is already famous in her own right. According to the Mirror, “in 2010, April was crowned a Playmate for Playboy magazine and she appeared in a 12-page spread, including the centrefold, in the gold issue of Playboy France. Three months later she was named Playboy Playmate for the first ever limited edition of Playboy Italy. In 2011, she was the first “Next Top Model” discovery named by Nuts magazine and was also voted second in a poll for Zoo magazine as the top model to look for this year.” Looks like we’ve got an international superstar on our hands. Oh, and she’s 23 years old, no big whoop, just 30 years younger than Sean. And to think, all these years, I’ve mostly been jealous of his accent. This changes everything. Sean Bean… boss.
