Sean: I thought I was gonna get killed, so I was kinda happy a new script arrived and I wasn't dead! When I saw Maid Marian was coming back, to be honest - this sounds terrible, but I was really disappointed. And the reason I was disappointed is because I really love playing opposite Lana and we have a lot of fun together and I thought maybe next season, I’m not gonna get to play with my friend every day. by imelda
