Sean transitioned to acting from a background in directing and last fall had his first feature film lead in the comedy-thriller Hello From Nowhere. He also played the main villain in an upcoming Hulu pilot named “Cyborgs” and this spring was made a member of Tim Robbins’ theater troupe ‘The Actor’s Gang’ in Culver City, where he was cast in multiple roles in an ensemble play by Tim Robbins entitled, Violence: The Misadventures of Spike Spangle, Farmer.
Sean has a strong background in acting which started as a child in stage productions in his hometown of Portland before transitioning to directing. Upon his return to acting he has studied at Anthony Meidl, Warner Laughlin, Groundlings, and has been extensively trained by Tim Robbins in “The Style”, a form of Commedia dell’arte utilized in the productions at The Actor’s Gang.
Sean has a strong physical component to his acting as a former fitness model, natural bodybuilder and martial artist. He is very good with stage combat and choreographed fight scenes having a black belt in Taekwondo and practicing Krav Maga for over 4 years. He is agile as an avid surfer and skier and the opening sequence of Hello From Nowhere features him and bounding over boulder field and scaling a granite rock face unharnessed like a scene from the Ninja Warrior competition. When it comes to action, Sean Paul Ross is the go-to guy!
