Sharpe's Challenge - Starring Sean Bean

Sharpe's Challenge

Sharpe's Challenge


Sean Bean is back as the swashbuckling hero in SHARPE’S CHALLENGE. A year after Wellington crushes Napoleon at Waterloo, Wellington sends Sharpe to investigate what turns out to be his most dangerous mission to date. The fate of an Empire and the life of a General's daughter lie in one man's hands ...

After five seasons of action-packed adventure films, averaging an audience of 47 percent, the award-winning Sharpe returns as two feature length episodes written by Russell Lewis.

Sean Bean returns to the role of Richard Sharpe for the first time in eight years, joined by Daragh O’Malley as Sharpe’s best friend Sgt Patrick Harper, in this bloody enterprise filmed entirely in India. Toby Stephens is Colonel Dodd, the villainous renegade officer. Padma Lakshmi is Madhuvanthi, favourite consort, now ruling as Regent. Also starring Lucy Brown as Celia Burrows, the general’s daughter held against her will, Michael Cochrane as the pompous General Simmerson, and Peter Hugo-Daly as the treacherous Sgt Shadrach Bickerstaff.
