Sean Bean Debuts As Mr. Wilford In ‘Snowpiercer’ Season 2 Teaser

After a long and troubled route, TNT’s Snowpiercer series has not only made its way to TV, but just concluded a fairly successful first season. And just as the train has finished leaving the station, already they’re beginning to tease season two and the newest passenger to board: Sean Bean.

The respected actor whose characters are nearly always killed is joining Snowpiercer season 2, playing the mysterious Mr. Wilford. Teased frequently during the first season, Mr. Wilford is the actual creator of the life-saving train, and is treated as the savior of humanity although many believe him to be long dead. Well, clearly that ain’t the case.

Bean’s credentials with the sci-fi/fantasy crowd speak for themselves. The actor has been in everything, such as Lord of the Rings, Game of Thrones, Goldeneye, Troy, The Martian…his cred runs deep.

No word on when Snowpiercer‘s second season will start, but it looks like we won’t have to wait long.
