London: Actor Sean Bean, who is known for playing tough guy roles, stepped out in full drag to get into character as a transvestite in a new drama.
The actor will show off his feminine side for new BBC drama "Accused", about a man going through a sex change.
To prepare for his character, Bean practised walking in stilettos in his kitchen - before going out in women`s clothes with his daughter, reports dailystar.co.uk.
"(I got into character) by walking round in high heels in the kitchen at home... and one night I went out ... arm-in-arm with my middle daughter," he said.
"I wanted to find out what it felt like, whether I`d be able to pull it off and have the bottle (bravery) to function in that situation. I must have been pretty good, no pictures turned up in the press. Someone even complimented me on my shoes. I`ve still got four pairs of size-10 heels lying about my house. I forgot to give them back," he added.
