Actor Bean, 53, who made his name in the Napoleonic war drama Sharpe, was arrested and bailed in May over allegations that he sent abusive texts and calls to actress Georgina Sutcliffe.

A Met Police spokesman said Bean, who is currently starring in the fantasy series Game Of Thrones, has "since been released with no further action".

Bean and Sutcliffe, his fourth wife, divorced in December 2010 after two years of marriage.
