Early Life and Education
Sean left Houston in his teenage years, and went to Ohio with his mother to attend Barbizon Modeling and Acting School in Cleveland; he was a part of the International Model and Talent Association event when he was 17. In 2001, he matriculated from Padua Franciscan High School and wanted to pursue an acting career instead of a college degree, so he moved to Los Angeles to make his dreams come true. He also had a big wish to join the US Air Force which he applied for, but was rejected because of his bad eyesight.
Sean didn’t have a great start. The first two TV shows he was in were cancelled before they could even finish filming season one. Some of his early works which are worth mentioning are his appearances in “Sleepover” in 2004, and was nominated for the award of a young actor, and “Yours, Mine and Ours” in 2005 after which he decided to take a break. He returned in 2007 and appeared in movies such as “Forever Strong” and “Never Back Down”, then he underwent some serious training in order to get ready for his rugby player role in “Never Back Down”, apparently exercising seven hours a day every day, and running six miles twice a day. This was not the only time that he was serious about getting ready for a role – he mastered the training for hockey for his appearance in the “Life as We Know It” TV show in 2004.
Sean is also a producer – he produced his own movie in 2008 named “Manifest Destiny”, and had a main role in it tooe. One of his important appearances in TV series was in “The Vampire Diaries” – he only appeared in three episodes but it was enough for him to get noticed.
Talking about his modelling career, he was put on the cover of the US “Men’s Health” Magazine in 2010 which turned out to be the most selling magazine issue that year. He co-starred in the movie called “The Lost Valentine” in the beginning of 2011. In the same year, he lent his voice to Jack Rourke – a character in the “Need for Speed: The Run” game.
He was nominated for three awards in 2005, 2007 and 2008 and managed to win two of them – young Hollywood award and an MTV movie award. His other noticeable appearances include 14 episodes of the TV series “Pretty Little Liars” shot from 2013 to 2015, and “Adulterers” crime drama movie in 2015, based on a true story about a man who finds his wife cheating on him on their anniversary. He holds both of them at gunpoint while deciding whether or not he is going to kill them. The story takes place in a single day in New Orleans.
Sean and his wife, Cherie Daly, who is also an actress, are both big fans of the “Burning Man” festival, and married on 5 September, 2017 during this festival, which takes place in the western US at Black Rock City.
Sean does not drink alcohol, nor does he smoke, and he hates junk food.
