Richard III: Leicester (Richard Armitage) vs York (Sean Bean) - Poll: Who has the most Plantagenet Nose

I don't have any British ancestry, so I'm staying out of the Leicester or York debate on where Richard III should be buried:

But the debate and reconstruction of Richard III's face made me think about my two favorite actors and their profiles.  You see, Richard Armitage is from Leicestershire and Sean Bean is from Yorkshire.

Comparing the profile of Richard III, definitely a Plantagenet, to the profile of Richard Armitage and Sean Bean per the photos below, the poll question is:

Who has the most Plantagenet nose?  RA or SB? 

Please vote - Poll on the right hand sidebar

  1. I'm going to have to go a completely different way and say Greta Van Susteren. LOL

    1. How does Greta feel about playing Richard III? :) :)

  2. What a dilemma! LoL but I couldn't resist voting for Sean I figured everyone else would vote RA anyway ;)

  3. It's funny, but I've never thought of Sean Bean's nose before.

    I'll have to go for RA, simply because he looks more like R3 than Mr Bean does!

    1. Hi Traxy,

      I'm so glad I made you think about Sean's nose! Thank you for voting.
