'Game Of Thrones' Star Sean Bean Would Love A 'Coronation Street' Cameo

Sean Bean has confessed he would love to make a cameo in Coronation Street - and told producers to give him a call.

The Sheffield-born actor made his name in British period drama Sharpe before forging a successful career as a Hollywood villain. He now stars in hit HBO fantasy show Game of Thrones.

But Sean told The Daily Star: "I would love to pop up in Corrie if they find me the right character. But maybe one that doesn't stay too long."

And it is not the first time Sean has asked for a Corrie cameo. In 2010 he said said it was his "favourite soap".

He added: "They haven't contacted me or my agent about it. So it's over to them."

Lord of the Rings star Sir Ian McKellen, comedians Peter Kay and Roy Hudd and Status Quo rockers Francis Rossi and Rick Parfitt are among stars who have appeared in the soap.
