* BritishAccents: In what may be the finest British Accents twist of all time, author Bernard Cornwell revised the backstory of the character Sharpe to reflect Sean Bean's portrayal. The books had established that Sharpe was from [[LondonTown London]], but Bean is from Sheffield and has a distinct [[OopNorth Northern accent]]; Cornwell [[RetCon established in later novels]] that while Sharpe had indeed been born in London, he fled to Sheffield for a life of crime to avoid being sold as a chimney sweep by the person that ran his orphanage.
