I was called Sean long before I was an actor, I had an Irish buddy whenI was 12 named Seamus -- pronounced Shay-mus. So they nicknamed usSeamus and Shawn and it stuck.
I never disliked Bond, as some have thought. Creating a character likethat does take a certain craft. It's simply natural to seek otherroles.
More than anything else, I'd like to be an old man with a good face,like [Alfred Hitchcock (I)] or [Pablo Picasso].
I've honestly not been too aware of my age until I went to the doctorfor a full check-up. He said I had the heart of a young man - "butyou're not young, you're 40".
Some age, others mature.
[on turning down the role of Gandolf in the first "Lord of the Rings"film] I had never read [J.R.R. Tolkien], and I didn't understandthe script when they sent it to me. Bobbits? Hobbits?
