Sean Bean 'stabbed outside London pub'
'Game of Thrones' actor in 'altercation with passer-by'
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.
