Marriage FIRST LOOK: Sean Bean and Nicola Walker put on an animated display while filming the BBC drama as they take on the role of an embattled husband and wife


Sean Bean and Nicola Walker put on a very animated display on the set of the new BBC drama Marriage on Wednesday. 

The Game Of Thrones star, 62, appeared to flick between emotions during filming – at one point seeming as though he was screaming, and the next smiling next to his co-star Nicola, as they take on the role of a husband and wife.

Sean looked handsome in his on-screen threads, donning a casual pair of loose-fitting blue jeans and a high-neck grey jumper.
