Imagination Connoisseur, Jim Hart, writes in to share how the actor Sean Bean (known for roles in PATRIOT GAMES, FELLOWSHIP OF THE RING and Game of Thrones) inspired author Bernard Cornwell to make changes to his main character to reflect Bean’s own background and characteristics.

Hi Rob.

Longtime lurker; first letter.

Re: Connery’s Bond influencing Fleming, as was mentioned in the latest Robservations.

Bernard Cornwell was so impressed with Sean Bean’s portrayal of Richard Sharpe that he changed the London-born character’s backstory to include a Yorkshire adolescence to account for Bean’s accent. Also he dedicated the novel Sharpe’s Battle to the actor.

Thanks for continuing your channel, but sheesh, it’s hard to keep up with all of ’em!
