Sean Faris

I’ve often thought of writing fiction as praying for the continuation of your life, because the only time when your life doesn’t depend on your continued existence is when you’re not here to write it. And then it’s just somebody else’s story. So I think dream-like qualities are part of the way writers keep doing it. I’ll only stop once I find something else to do.

Texan Sean Faris began modeling as a teenager in his adopted home of Cleveland, Ohio. In 2000, after graduating from high school, he moved to Los Angeles in the hopes of leveraging his modeling success into a career in acting. Faris kicked off his Hollywood career with appearances in an indie action movie and a recurring role as Darren on MTV's eyebrow-raising teen soap "Undressed." He played a prom king in 2004's junior chick-flick "Sleepover" and then landed a role as the eldest son to a family of 20 in "Yours, Mine and Ours," a 2005 remake of a film starring comic legend Lucille Ball and based on the same true story of divorcées who marry and struggle to integrate their respective broods. In 2004, he earned the lead in the short-lived but well-regarded teen dramedy "Life As We Know It." Co-created Gabe Sachs, a former staff writer from critical favorite "Freaks and Geeks," the show saw Faris in his first lead role. After its cancellation he played heir Craig Brewster on FOX's failed mystery series "Reunion." In 2008, his breakout year, he ended his detour in family films to star as a troubled high-school rugby star in 2008's "Forever Strong" and as a troubled mixed-martial artist in "Never Back Down." Faris continues to do print modeling work while acting in films, on televison, and in video games. (Source: www.rottentomatoes.com)

Sean Hardy Faris was born in Houston, Texas, to Katherine (Miller) and Warren Stephen Faris. He is of English, German, Scottish, and Irish descent. Sean moved to Ohio at age twelve, and has been honing his craft in Los Angeles since moving four years upon his high school graduation. He received an MTV Movie Award for his lead role in Summit Entertainment's hit Never Back Down, and starred as Betty White's grandson and Jennifer Love Hewitt's love interest in the CBS Hallmark Hall of Fame telefilm The Lost Valentine. In addition to his central role in the rugby-inspired feature Forever Strong, he appeared as Dennis Quaid's eldest son in Paramount's hit remake of the classic Yours, Mine & Ours and previously starred as the hunky object of affection in MGM's comedy romp Sleepover. Next on the horizon is the crime thriller Pawn in which he stars opposite Academy Award-winner Forest Whitaker, and the coveted title role in The Story of Bonnie & Clyde. In direct contrast, Faris starred as the lead in FOX's acclaimed drama series Reunion which followed six close friends from their high school graduation to their 20th reunion. He previously led the cast of ABC's dramatic series Life As We Know It. Based upon British author Melvin Burgess' controversial novel Doing It, the acclaimed show chronicled the sexual antics of a group of high school friends in Seattle. For his role as sensitive jock Dino Whitman, he was heralded as a breakout talent by the likes of Daily Variety, The Hollywood Reporter, and USA Today. A more recent foray into television included a multi-episode arc on The CW's top-rated Vampire Diaries. No stranger to television, Faris has also guest-starred on such shows as Smallville, One Tree Hill, and Boston Public. His big screen debut featured him alongside the likes of Ben Affleck and Josh Hartnett in Michael Bay's epic Pearl Harbor. (Source: www.amazon.com)
