Sean McPherson lives in Plymouth, MA where he works as a college English professor and actor.
After teaching high school and then college English for over a combined sixteen years, Sean discovered his love of acting after attending his first acting classes. There he discovered that acting is more than about portraying a “role,” but that it motivates him to be a better human being.
Sean’s philosophy of acting is about making connections: connections to the script, connections with other actors, and, ultimately, connecting with the audience. Human beings are social people, and connecting with one another is a natural act that we unfortunately “unlearn” as we grow into adults when we conform to the norms of society. Sean believes that acting taps into the human facet of connecting with each other, as participants and viewers, in the most profound ways.
Sean has worked in a wide range of film, television, commercials and industrials. He has been featured in short films like “Hit” and “The Eye,” he has appeared in independent films like “Justice is Mind” and “The Dark Disciple,” he has also appeared in television on the National Geographic channel, and he has done background work in major motion pictures like “The Heat,” with Sandra Bullock and Melissa McCarthy and “The Makeover,” with Julia Stiles. Sean has worked in multiple genres: drama, action, and comedy.
Sean is currently filming “Henry and Greta,” an artistic take on the “Hansel and Gretel” tale, where he plays the father, and season two of the webseries “Family Problems,” where he plays Connor as an adult.
One of Sean’s favorite quotes comes from one of his improv teachers: “The more you give the other actor, the better the performance.” i.e.: “the more you give, the more you get.” True in life as well as in art.
