Who is Sean Pertwee?

Sean Pertwee was born on the 6th June 1964, in Hammersmith, London, England, and is an actor and a voice artist who is probably best recognized for his major role in one of the most popular movies from the 2000s entitled “Dog Soldiers”. In addition, he is well-known for his performances in several more movies such as “Equilibrium”, “Goal! Dream Begins”, “Formula 51” and many more.

Early Life and Education

When it comes to his childhood, probably the most interesting aspect is his family. He was described as having had a strong predisposition to become an entertainer as he was born into a family widely popular for its talent in the field – his father, John Pertwee, was an iconic British actor, who became one of the nation’s and world’s favorite actors after participating in the epochal and long-living TV series “Doctor Who”. His grandfather, Roland Pertwee and his uncle Michael Pertwee were exceptional playwrights and screenwriters. Finally, his cousin Bill and his sister Dariel are respected actors, as well. Therefore, it was anticipated from the beginning that Sean would be as talented and that he would become a part of that industry.

Following his matriculation from Teddington School in London, he started attending Sunbury College where he got a chance to expand his talent. As acting was one of the most important things to him, he thought that he should invest in his education and continued to learn and improve his skills at the Bristol Old Vic Theatre School. After the graduation in 1986, he joined the Royal Shakespeare Company, and went on tours with them which lasted for three years.

Career Beginnings

The beginning of Sean’s movie career came in 1999, when he was chosen to portray Brutus in the Hallmark Channel’s movie “Cleopatra”, increasing enormously his popularity as well as his net worth. This can be marked as his huge breakthrough, as he immediately gained more deserved attention which brought him the benefit of meeting a great number of successful people inthe business and collaborating with them. Consequently, he was featured in a number of projects from 2000 to 2003, in such as movies “Love, Honor and Obey”, “Dog Soldiers”, “Formula 51” as well as in TV series “Cold Feet” and “Waking the Dead”.

Then in 2003 came his first major collaboration on the other side of the camera – he became one of the co-owners of the prominent film production company Natural Nylon alongside Johnny Lee Miller, Jude Law, Ewan McGregor and Sadie Frost. Concurrently with the production business, Sean continued to work on other projects, and starred in the role of Richard Hennerson in the 2004 TV movie “A Bear’s Christmas Tail”, and appeared in the movies “The Last Drop” and “Wilderness” in 2006. Between 2007 and 2009, he made numerous notable appearances in TV series “Tudors”, “Nuclear Secrets” and “Skins”, as well as in movies “Doomsday”, Mutant Chronicles” and “The Unsinkable Titanic” adding a considerable amount to his net worth.

2010s

By 2010 he was considered as an established voice-over actor too, and was accordingly featured in a great number of widely popular and successful video games. For instance, he did a voice-over for Saker in “Fable II” and “Fable III”,  Colonel Radec in “PlayStation All-Stars Battle Royale” and Peter Chamberlaine in “Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag”. Even though his voice acting business was mushrooming, he never left his movie and television career; he portrayed Sensei in the TV drama entitled “Just For the Record”, and appeared as Charlie in the mini TV series “Jo”. His next major role came in 2013, when he played Pete in the comedy entitled “The Magnificent Eleven”, along with Josh O’Connor and Robert Vaughn, which was followed by appearances in the outstanding TV series “Poirot” and “Death in Paradise”.

Recent Years

To speak further about his acting career, Sean was selected to play himself in the TV movie dedicated to the 50th anniversary of “Doctor Who”, and landed the role of Gareth Lestrade in the TV series “Elementary” alongside Jonny Lee Miller and Lucy Liu. Finally he got a chance to be part of the main cast of the legendary action/drama TV series “Gotham”, portraying Alfred Pennyworth, so his net worth has undoubtedly increased because of that.

Personal Life

There is little information about his personal life except for his famous parents and brothers; he’s managed to keep his love life as private as possible. It is only known that he married his high school sweetheart, Jane ‘Jacqui’ Hamilton-Smith in 1999, and two years later his wife gave birth to the twins, Gilbert and Alfred, but, unfortunately, due to complications during pregnancy, Gilbert died after a few days after their birth date.

Social Media Presence and Net Worth

Sean is currently active on all popular social media. He has accounts on Facebook, Instagram where he has more and 270,000 followers, and Twitter with 130,000 fans. As for his wealth, it is estimated by authoritative sources that Sean counts his net worth at the impressive amount of $5 million as of 2019, accumulated through his career in the film industry. Another source is coming from his participation in the production and video game area.

Quotes

#Quote
1[on Peter Capaldi] My father was very fond of Peter and Peter is an extremely lovely gentleman. He was very kind to my family when my father passed away, he was big fan of my dad's actually. So personally the Pertwee household were absolutely delighted when he got the role of The Doctor. I think he's going to bring some real gravitas and weight, which only comes with age. Taking nothing away from Matt [Matt Smith], who I thought was great, I just think he's going to stupendous. He's going to have a completely different look. He's such a phenomenal actor anyway I think he'll be absolutely brilliant. I'm delighted he's doing it.
