Sean Bean’s balls-wax­ing tranny shock

Midweek Sport - - NEWS -

MA­CHO ac­tor Sean Bean has re­vealed the hard­est thing about play­ing a transvestite was walk­ing in stilet­tos and hav­ing to wax his en­tire body – in­clud­ing his balls!

The York­shire­man, 53, plays a cross­dress­ing bloke in the new Jimmy McGovern drama Ac­cused, which aired on BBC1 last night.

He said: “This is the most de­mand­ing role I’ve played – partly be­cause of the full body wax!”

Sh­effield-born Bean is best known his por­trayal of a mav­er­ick ri­fle­man in 1990s TV se­ries Sharpe, but he donned a wig, dress and stilet­tos for his lat­est role.

He added: “There I am, a big bloke, it’s a week be­fore film­ing and I’m prac­tis­ing walk­ing in high heels around my house.

“It felt like I was on stilts. I thought, ‘This hurts, I’ll never stop hob­bling. I need to be able to get my pos­ture right’.

“My sym­pa­thies go out to women now. I un­der­stand what they go through.”
