Well, Sean Bean obviously needed to know. Ned Stark is one of the few people who definitely knows Jon Snow's parentage, after all.
Considering how little emphasis the scripts place on Ned and Jon, and given Bean's, er, less than nuanced acting style, I think they could have gotten away with not telling Bean, if they really wanted to keep it close to the vest. And Alfie Allen, whose character pretty plainly doesn't know in the books, is another thing altogether.
