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.
