Sean worked for his father's welding firm before he decided to become an actor. He attended RADA in London and appeared in a number of West End stage productions including RSC's "Fair Maid of the West" (Spencer), (1986) and "Romeo and Juliet" (1987) (Romeo) , as well as "Deathwatch" (Lederer) (1985) at the Young Vic and "Killing the Cat" (Danny) (1990) at the Theatre Upstairs. Sean has three young daughters, Lorna, Molly and Evie.

  • The only film awards he's ever won are from the Screen Actors Guild, the National Board of Review and the Broadcast Film Critics Association; these awards were all for Best Cast Ensemble for _The Lord of the Rings: The Return of the King (2003)_ (qv), in which he only appeared for three seconds in archive footage.
  • Once played Romeo at the Royal Shakespeare Theatre in streetwise-wearing biker's leather.
  • Was not the first choice for the role of Richard Sharpe in the Sharpe series; he stepped in when an accident prevented actor 'Paul McGann (I)' (qv) from taking the part.
  • Presented the award for Duo of the Year to John Tams and Barry Coope at the BBC Radio 2 Folk Awards. (4th February 2008).
  • He was a presenter at the 1995 BAFTA Awards.
  • He and his ex-wife, 'Melanie Hill (I)' (qv), have two daughters: Lorna and Molly.
  • Has a scar over his eye given to him by 'Harrison Ford (I)' (qv) while shooting his death scene in _Patriot Games (1992)_ (qv). Ford accidentally hit him with a boat hook. In the Sharpe series, this was emphasised with makeup to add credibility to his character.
  • Has worked opposite two Aragorns. Prior to working with 'Viggo Mortensen' (qv) in The Lord of the Rings, he appeared in _The Field (1990)_ (qv) with 'John Hurt' (qv), who had voiced Aragorn in 'Ralph Bakshi' (qv)'s animated film. Also, in _Sharpe's Challenge (2006) (TV)_ (qv), he works with 'Toby Stephens' (qv), whose father, 'Robert Stephens (I)' (qv), played Aragorn in the BBC Radio Adaptation.
