It motivated him not to sit and wait for opportunities, but to seek for them. Sean was brought up as a Roman Catholic, but later distanced from his religion, not abandoning it. ‘If you are still attached to your religion, your color, or the country you were born in, then you still don’t know who you really are’, Sean shared his thoughts on his current beliefs.

His father always wanted Sean to join the US Air Force, and Sean even applied for it, but was later rejected due to strong myopia. Even though he listened to his father’s advice, he dreamt of being an actor from when he was around nine years old – when the movie “Top Gun” was released, Sean was 10, and some of his friends remarked how similar he looked to Tom Cruise.

A bit later Sean convinced the whole neighborhood that he was Tom Cruise’s son, and his real father was allegedly his uncle, who had to take care of him while ‘his father Tom Cruise’ had to work in Hollywood. His sister soon gave the game away.

Educational background

The family moved to Ohio, and Sean attended Barbizon Modeling and Acting School, located in Cleveland. While in high school. Sean was interested in playing basketball, soccer and baseball, but when he was 17 years old, he participated in the International Model and Talent Association in 1999.

He moved to Los Angeles, California, and soon started getting job offers for various projects.

Looking back with the understanding that everything in life as we know it has changed. There seems to be anticipation to get back to normal. What normal? The "normal" that we previously engaged in is what caused us to get to this very moment and in the condition in which we are now living. Something has gotta give. Without a doubt, everything has changed. It is on us to recognize the significance of what this experience can potentially be for all of the human species and the effect we have on the one place we all call home, Earth. We have an opportunity to unite as one and work together to get through this. To transform old patterns of thought and begin again with a fresh perspective of how to treat the planet, each other, and even ourselves. #WEAREALLINTHISTOGETHER #LifeIsAGift #Love💜
