What is 'Snowpiercer' star Sean Bean's net worth? English actor gets a makeover for Season 2 of TNT drama
The 'GoldenEye' and 'Game of Thrones' star is estimated to be worth $20 million
Sean Bean was the X-factor in TNT's 'Snowpiercer' in the opening season and his character wasn't introduced till the final moment. The new trailer begins with Bean, who will play Mr Wilford, saying, “This is your conductor speaking. We are only moments away from righting the reprehensible wrong that has befallen our great engine." This has generated that hype around Bean's character that was shrouded in secrecy throughout the opening season.
Bean will be one of the pivotal characters in the series alongside Layton (Daveed Diggs) and Melanie (Jennifer Connelly) and it's interesting to see how he's charted his way from his portrayal of Richard Sharpe in the ITV series 'Sharpe' to Mr Wilford in the hit dystopian drama. This also piques interest in his fame and fortunes, especially with an acting CV that's anything but impressive. Bean has been part of blockbusters that rocked the world— 'Patriot Games', 'GoldenEye', 'The Lord of the Rings' trilogy, and 'The Martian'.
Fans though will remember him for his impressive performance as Alec Trevelyan in 'GoldenEye'. He was James Bond's predecessor, 006, and fakes his death. He goes on to establish the Janus crime syndicate over the following nine years. He played a supporting role in Matt Damon's space drama, 'The Martian'.
Add 'Game of Thrones' and the hit BBC series, 'Accused' to the list, his estimated net worth of $20 million, then according to celebrity net worth doesn't come as a surprise. Celebworth lists his annual pay to be around $3.23M. The sought-after English actor has carved a niche for himself by being one of those versatile actors in Hollywood and with 'Snowpiercer', he's also seen in a makeover of sorts. People remember Bean as Ned Stark from 'Game of Thrones', however, he's shed his medieval approach and looks a lot more dapper in the pictures from the new season.
The series follows a former homicide detective and the head of hospitality on the Snowpiercer as they interact with people from across the 1,001-car train. Picking up more than half a decade after the train departed on its never-ending journey, the series will explore the divisions and injustices that plague what's left of mankind on its final voyage.
The official synopsis for season 2 of 'Snowpiercer' reads: "Discovering Mr. Wilford is alive and headed their way on a rival train, Melanie risks going outside to prevent him from invading Snowpiercer." The upcoming installment sees an all-new power struggle aboard as the train sees a clear division between Layton and Mr. Wilford. The latter definitely seems to be the man-in-charge with Alice, the new train and is armed with new tech and a plan that he plays pretty close to his chest.
