Movie Notes

• Cast in the role of Boromir


• (on Boromir) "Being human, he's more susceptible to the power of the Ring and is constantly having to the fight against it. He knows that it's got a strong draw on him, and throughout the journey, that keys preying on his mind." - LotR Official Movie Guide
• "Lord of the Rings was just so much enjoyment. It was over about the space of a year that I was filming. It's one of the most enjoyable things I've ever done...so emotional." - Interview with Compleat Sean Bean
• "I'm proud of Lord of the Rings, and I want to be there to tell people to go and see it, and get behind it. I think it's a once in a lifetime role, and a once in a lifetime film." - Interview with Compleat Sean Bean
