Marriage star Sean Bean makes confession about his 5 weddings
As Sean Bean’s new four-part drama Marriage is set to air, the actor has confessed he doesn’t regret a thing after getting married five times.
The show, which sees the 63-year-old star alongside Nicola Walker, premieres on Sunday (August 14).
But Sean opened up about his private life, saying he wanted each of the marriages to last “forever”.
Sean ‘doesn’t regret anything’
Speaking to The Times, he confessed: “I’ve obviously experienced more marriages than most people. I suppose there is that romantic in me, otherwise I wouldn’t keep doing it, but I don’t regret anything. I’d live it all again.”
The paper added that if he’d have had five relationships over 30 years, nobody would have cared.
However, Sean’s traditional upbringing meant he wanted to marry them all.
I don’t regret anything. I’d live it all again.
He said: “That’s it, yes. It’s not as though I’ve been gallivanting around.”
“I suppose I could have seen how things developed, got to know them better before taking the plunge. But I didn’t because I felt strongly about all these women, otherwise I wouldn’t have married them.”
Who was Sean Bean married to?
Sean has been married five times and divorced four.

He then married actress Melanie Hill – who plays Cathy Matthews in Coronation Street – in 1990. They have two children together, but divorced in 1997.
