Sean Bean - Winner's Acceptance Speech, Leading Actor, Virgin TV British Academy Television Awards in 2018

13 May 2018

Winner's acceptance speech by Sean Bean for Broken in the Leading Actor category

SEAN BEAN: Thank you very much, everyone.  Thanks, BAFTA.  This means a great deal to me.  I'm really honoured and it means such a lot to me.

I don't think I'd be in this situation without the great mind and the great writing of Jimmy McGovern.  It was an inspiration to me.  I had worked with him before and he's an incredible man who shines a light on some of the darker aspects of our society.

I would like to thank Colin McEwan, and Donna Malloy, the producers of the show, and my good friend Gary Armstrong.  He'll know why.  And my wife Ashley.

I would just like to say thank you, I'm really, really honoured, and absolutely delighted.  Thank you very much.
