Sean Bean has revealed that he would like to film more episodes of Sharpe in the future.

The ITV drama, based on novels by Bernard Cornwell, stars Bean as a British soldier fighting in the Napoleonic wars. The last instalment, Sharpe's Peril, was aired in 2008.

Bean has now told Zap2It that he would like to return to the character in the future.

"I'd like to think [there will be more]," he said. "But we have been through so many wars in that series, and perhaps the Battle of Waterloo was the last major battle in that time... But we did go to India, which was fun, and we may be doing another one where I look for my long-lost daughter."

However, Bean admitted that he is not sure whether more Sharpe will be made.

"I think it's just the expense of things, especially in England right now with the recession and people cutting back on things," he said. "Sharpe is quite a big production, when you think of television... British television, anyway."

Bean is currently starring in the HBO fantasy series Game of Thrones.
