15th December 2020

Sean Bean and Stephen Graham have been spotted filming on Southport Pier today.

The Game of Thrones actor is starring in a new BBC drama “Time” alongside Stephen Graham who plays prison officer Eric.

Bean will star as a teacher who killed an innocent man in an accident in the Jimmy McGovern drama.

Filming has also taken place in Liverpool in recent weeks.

Production will continue in Huyton tomorrow.

A car park at Ocean Plaza has been turned into a base of operations for the production.

No air date for the drama has been confirmed.

After wrapping production for the day, Sean Bean greeted some well-wishers at the Pier gates before being whisked away in a people carrier.

Sean said: “Getting to be involved in a Jimmy McGovern drama again is a real privilege and it will be great to be reunited with Stephen.

“Mark Hebden is another of Jimmy’s complex and superbly written characters and I am looking forward to bringing him to life on screen.”
