Testimonials


We were very blessed to have Sean on board for ‘Hood: Noble Secrets’. Being a new outfit, there was always a risk that people might not take us seriously, but Sean was wonderful  in coming on board and believing in what we were doing, providing some really useful extra insights and advice and then when we go into the studio proving he was a major asset and star for the production. It's a rather wonderful thing that Sean is multi-voiced. It was amazing to watch him lift all his characters from the page and breath very different life into each of them. I've had people comment that it must be difficult to find actors who are content to just take on a job that only gives them 1 or 2 scenes, little realising that they're listening to the same man! Sean's awesome, talented and a pleasure to work with and we're really looking forward to doing more with him in the future… I should also say he has some great stories to tell about The Archers!

IAIN MEADOWS - DIRECTOR/CEO OF SPITEFUL PUPPET.


Never heard of him..!! Needing a lot of voices on ‘Shaun the Sheep Movie’ and ‘Rex the Runt’, Sean was ideal as he could call on so many different characters. He also has that rare gift that added to both the film and the series …… Comic timing.

RICHARD STARZAC - CO-DIRECTOR & CO-WRITER OF ‘SHAUN THE SHEEP MOVIE’ - AARDMAN ANIMATIONS.

Working with Sean is always a delight. His professionalism and attention to detail make him a pleasure to direct and his spectacular range of voices brought imagination, colour and humour to all the characters he portrayed in our BBC productions of ‘Big Cook Little Cook’ and ‘Horrid Henry’. He never fails to deliver.

NICKY GRISCHOTTI - INDEPENDENT PRODUCER, FORMER SENIOR PRODUCER FOR BBC CHILDREN'S.

Sean delivered above and beyond our expectations, his animal voices for ‘Papa's Boy’ are hilarious and heart-warming, and add hugely to the film. His narration is professional and engaging. Our sound team were extremely impressed with his preparation, ability to deliver take after take, and his seemingly effortless range. We hope to work on many more projects with Sean!

TAMSIN LYONS - PRODUCER AT BREAKTHRU FILMS/INK AND LIGHT.

Not only is Sean a real pleasure to work with, but he is a highly versatile and talented actor who ably judges the tone and level of each production and pitches his own performance perfectly. His range of voices, characters and accents make him a particularly valuable asset for those occasions when budgets are tight and you need four actors to perform 50 characters! Thank goodness for the Sean's of the acting world!

JOHN AINSWORTH - PRODUCER/DIRECTOR OF AUDIO DRAMA AND TALKING BOOKS.


As a director and producer of BAFTA-winning cinema and television for Film Four and the BBC amongst others, I regularly come into contact with the best actors in our industry. I have had the privilege of working with Sean on the films ‘Buried’, ‘NFA’ and ‘We Are the Freaks’ and always admire the way he throws himself into a role and his consistency at adapting to diverse playing styles. He has the intuition as well as technical skills that makes a great actor tick and is at the forefront of his field.

JUSTIN EDGAR – DIRECTOR/PRODUCER AT 104 FILMS.

Sean produces completely believable performances in corporate roles and has that rare ability to judge exactly how far to go so that the most learning is brought out of the experience for the delegates. He is always the consummate professional and is highly client focused in his approach.


COLIN ROTE - MANAGING DIRECTOR AT DRAMATIC SOLUTIONS.

I worked with Sean when I was a producer in the BBC Children’s Radio Unit. He was always very easy to work with and I found him to be an extremely versatile and talented actor. His ability to do a wide variety of accents was especially useful for the children’s dramas and stories on which he and I worked and I would never hesitate to recommend him to my colleagues.
