Teddy Sears was born in Washington, D.C and raised in Chevy Chase, Maryland in a close-knit family that can be traced back to Plymouth, Massachusetts in the year 1630. Athletics has always played a major role in his family. In high school, the easy-going 6' 3" captain of the varsity football team was awarded all-state honors as a tight end, as well as receiving a national top-ten ranking in the 100-yard breaststroke. Teddy played varsity football for the University of Maryland carrying on the family tradition of athletic excellence inspired by his great-grandfather who won a gold medal in the 1912 Olympics and again by his aunt who took home a bronze in the l956 Olympics. Teddy transferred and graduated from the University of Virginia with a degree in business management in 1999.
Teddy's business career was sidetracked when he arrived in New York after graduation. After his first audition he wound up with a 2-year contract role on the daytime series "One Life to Live". Then, after several appearances on the "Law & Order" franchise and "Whoopi", Teddy decided to pursue a two-year acting program with one of New York's top teachers, William Esper. This "serious" training ironically led to hysterical comedy stints on "The David Letterman Show" and "Late Night With Conan O'Brien." Teddy landed his first studio film when he flew himself out to Los Angeles to read for an unrelated project.
