In 2007 the opportunity arose to use his talents for a worthy cause when he landed a role for a National HIV/AIDS Foundation commercial, which ran during the Cricket World Cup. It was at this stage that Sean was advised to take his career to Hollywood, which saw his move to Los Angeles in 2007, a successful decision thus far.
Within a week of his move he was hand picked from a line of 300 actors and two days later was in a scene in the blockbuster film Hancock, starring Will Smith. Since then he has been seen on popular TV shows such as CSI Miami, ER, Lincoln Heights, 24, NCIS, Two and a Half Men, Dirty Sexy Money and the pilot for Life on Mars.
Sean also had the lead in several short films including ‘Russell’, a quirky comedy about three firemen; ‘Rumshumkrushafu’, the story about a soldier in Iraq; and a supporting role in ‘The Free Way’, directed by Italian director Alvaro R. Valente. He was also the lead in several independent films. ‘The Prince of Venice’, alongside Ali Suleman, who starred in The Kingdom with Jamie Foxx. ‘Clean Cut’, about a schizophrenic janitor and ‘You’, a film about a dangerous love triangle.
In January 2009 Sean returned home to act in ‘A Monument for Moses’ playing Sir Grantley Adams and completed the short film ‘Severed’ along with the quirky comedy ‘Herban Legends’. He also landed two national commercial for KFC and Nintendo WII respectively. Sean recently filmed ‘Two Brits and Some Mexican Cowboys’, ‘Poof’, a national commercial for ‘AAMCO’ and the feature film ‘Wedding Day’ starring David Koechner. He recently started the company Iland Boy Films and his latest film from this company, ‘REDEMPTION’, is due to be out in late 2011.
Sean is currently signed with Commercial Talent Agency, one of the top five commercial agencies in Los Angeles and Paradigm, one of the leaders of talent in the industry in New York. With his dreams and aspirations still set on doing so much more, he knows his best work is yet to come.
