Thank you! Now... read on for... Death by Cow!

Here it is - The List.
Every production Sean has been in...and the ultimate fate of the characters he's played.
Including the many roles where his character doesn't die. Really. He doesn't die. Honest.

the most creative dispatch of Sean's career. Definitely well hung.
