A social media campaign to keep British actor Sean Bean's character from dying in his latest onscreen venture has gone viral as fans desperately try to convince producers to keep him alive.

The Game of Thrones star has died onscreen more than 20 times throughout his career and in multiple gory ways, including beheadings, shootings, drownings, impalings and even being torn apart by horses.

Now fans are campaigning for Bean to make it all the way to the end of new U.S. show Legends without being killed off.

The #DontKillSeanBean (sic) hashtag was launched on social networks by producers at TNT, the cable channel set to broadcast Legends, and more than 600 fans have already shown their support.

U.S. billboards have displayed the hashtag and Bean himself has been pictured wearing a shirt featuring it, but so far TNT executives have not confirmed whether the star will survive the show.

Bean is fully behind the campaign, saying, "I've died a lot of different deaths. Maybe it's the quality of my death people are fascinated by."
